The ‘Gossip Girl’ star, and muse to most every enviable designer, has been appointed an ambassador for the luxurious French fashion house — and their latest model!

She stars in the hit show Gossip Girl, has the much anticipated film The Green Lantern on the horizon, will almost surely be making the awards show rounds with her film The Town, and now, the eternally gorgeous and forever busy Blake Lively, can add two more jobs to her ever growing resume — official ambassador and model for Chanel!

The 23-year-old starlet was selected by Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld for her new role and to front the fashion house’s upcoming handbag campaign. “She’s a kind of American dream girl, ” Karl told WWD. “I think she will become a great actress.”

Blake’s sure to be stunning ads will be released in April and were shot at the house’s famed Rue Cambon headquarters in Paris. Karl and Blake were first introduced by another fashion powerhouse, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, during Paris couture week.

So to recap, Blake met Karl through Anna, who made her an ambassador for one of the world’s most chic and timeless fashion houses, and she will now, when not starring in blockbuster and critically acclaimed films, be fronting their new ad campaign. Oh, and did we mention that Christian Louboutin named a shoe after her?

How hard it is to be young, tall, thin, blonde, talented AND stylish these days…
