The Gossip Girl stylist speaks out on why the blonde bombshell is such a good fit for her latest gig, and why she’s such a great role-model!

Before the news broke that Blake Lively was chosen as the face of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag line, I was waiting to see what campaign she would land first — but it turns out, according to Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman, the star was being very selective about her choice! “You know, she was approached with a lot of other offers but I think she made a very wise choice.”

“I’m not surprised about the news. You know, she grew up loving Chanel, she’s a muse to Karl [Lagerfeld]. She’s beautiful, she really has become this icon and I think it was a very smart choice,” he said at the launch event for his latest Charlotte Russe collection.

So, what is it about Blake that makes her so special? “It’s like a Princess Grace thing, but she’s also an all-American beauty while still being understood and appreciated in Europe. I think Karl is inspired with her because she’s like a breath of fresh air. She’s like a glistening disco ball, whenever you’re around her shes sparkles. I she’s a great teenage icon, you know she’s not running around partying, she’s never out, and she always has her panties on! She’s a great role model — even her body, she has a shape you know she’s not a size two or a tiny girl.”

Thats why I like Blake, her and her team are smart in the decisions they make (most of the time). Im sure shes been offered many endorsements, roles etc. but she was smart enough not to take them. And by holding out she managed to get great roles and Chanel. Some people try to belittle it by saying its just for the handbags but the cred that just comes with Chanel is priceless.
