Do you recognize the face above? If you don't then you really should update yourself a little more often on the socialites of today's fashion industry! Having appeared on The sisterhood of travelling pants, and hit American TV show Gossip girl, successful actress Blake Lively is now set to become the new face of Chanel.
I don't really have anything against this. I mean - shes pretty (without being too fake) and there is nothing that annoying about her (apart from her character Sarena on Gossip girl!) but if rumours are true, thousands of billboards and magazines not to mention advertisements on the television will be plastered with another blond, wafer thin role model for the young women of today's day and age to aspire to be.
There are pros and cons to this. I mean as I said - she is pretty without having any major plastic surgery and she is successful. But is she another reason for young girls to try and become 'older' before their time... or even to develop disorders such as anorexia? Yes, I might be acting a bit drastic - but im in a bit of a ranting mood, and someones got to ask the questions right?
What do you think? And what real celebs would you like to see as the new face of Chanel?!
