Act (relatively) real: Blake Lively
Things suddenly turned very Serena van der Woodsen when Blake Lively was asked to be the face of Chanel Mademoiselle handbags last year. Many people have touted her as not ‘Chanel-enough’ for the brand — maybe because she plays a dramatic teenager on TV, I don’t know — but Karl fell in love with her ‘American dream girl-ness’ and probably that hair. Blake has also been named as one of the more ‘real’ people to be chosen to adorn the coveted CC, along with Lily Allen’s Chanel Cocoon stint.
Maybe smiling a lot and getting people to like you is a key to success? Who knew.
