Blake Lively says NYC made her trendy.

Blake Lively says she has a better wardrobe since living in New York.

The 23-year-old American actress has become an international star thanks to her role in the hit US teen drama Gossip Girl.

Blake enjoys the perks of starring in the popular TV show, which follows the lives of a group of stylish youngsters living in New York. The star says her wardrobe is far more impressive since appearing on the glamorous series.

“None of it is mine. It’s nice to play dress-up, it’s like being a little girl and putting on make-up and outfits. I grew up in Burbank [California] and I love living in New York City so much [because of the shopping] and I now have a way better wardrobe,” she said in an interview with British newspaper The Independent.

The beauty plays Serena van der Woodsen in the popular show, and is often compared to her charismatic character. Blake says although she wears the same kind of clothes and lives in the same city, she is rather unlike her fictional character Serena.

“I wear pretty clothes and live in New York so people think I’m very similar to her; they see her talk and interact in their homes once a week and they probably assume that is who I am, but it’s not me,” she explained.

Would you wear Chanel’s Feather Barrette?

Chanel has begun selling a selection of their popular haute hair pieces at some of their botiques.

Karl Lagerfeld’s handmade stone, metal, and feather-spiked barrettes were clipped over the base of runway model’s long, straight ponytails during last season’s Chanel show.

According to Vogue:

The monochromatic statement piece shown above seems destined to plunge its beholder into a fit of fashion ecstasy via a swath of wispy black-and-white plumes, CC-strung chains, and signature black tweed. With its ability to make even a simple white tank and slim-cut silk pants look instantly party-ready, it’s as worthy a Fashion Week investment as spring’s retooled pastel tweed 2.55 bags. Now that’s practical magic.

The barrette above is available for only $2,500 at select Chanel botiques, or if you can’t wait – you can call 800-550-0005.

Happy shopping! :)

Check out a teaser for Keira Knightley’s new Chanel commercial!

Keira Knightley gets ready to promote Chanel in the video teaser for the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance.

Dressed in a nude catsuit and helmet, the 25-year-old actress climbs onto a Ducati in the fragrance’s latest ad.

Knightley teamed up with her ‘Pride & Prejudice’ director, Joe Wright, last September for the short film that will debut March 21.

“Nobody said exactly what it was going to be like,” she says in a voice-over in the video teaser. “I knew that it was something about a motorbike, and I knew that it was going to be beige. They said, ‘Sort of catsuit,’ and I said, ‘OK.’ It was completely unexpected. It’s a Chanel superwoman, I think.”

Blake Lively is the new face of Chanel, and here we have our first look at her debut ad!

WWD had a chance to ask the actress how she got into fashion to begin with.

Her mother, Elaine, was a fashion model who fronted a Hanes campaign and teamed up with her daughter to make dresses. “We’d always go down to the garment district with my father. We would go to really cool vintage stores or boutiques and we’d get a bunch of clothes and we’d sew a lot,” Lively recalls.

Yet the actress says she has no ambitions to jump into the melee with a project of her own.

“I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciation for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I?” she asks. “I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me.”

She also told NY Times that she was always holding out for Chanel.

“I had other opportunities and I would say, ‘Thank you so much, but I am holding out for Chanel.’ That’s who I want to be the face of. And people would say, ‘Well, that’s unrealistic, they only hire Europeans,’ and I said: ‘Well, how great. I’ll be the first then.'”

I think she’s gorgeous. Do you think she’ll make a good Chanel model?
