Blake Lively is pretty much unstoppable when it comes to fashion.
The real-life Serena van der Woodsen has been the face of Chanel's Mademoiselle handbag line, is super-tight with Christian Louboutin, has covered Vogue three times, and has now been officially announced as the new face of Gucci's new fragrance Premiere.
"In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamour and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood's golden era. Blake's unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way," said Frida Giannini, Gucci Creative Director, in a statement.
And not only is Blake the new face of one of the most respected high fashion brands in the world, she also managed to snag A-list director Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive) to shoot the campaign film. The short film will be presented at a special event during the Venice Film Festival on September 1st.
From the looks of this behind-the-scenes photo, Blake already looks fabulous in a bright red lipstick, matching red nails and a glamorous blowout, standing next to a very hipster-looking Refn.
So she's dating Ryan Reynolds, has a buzzworthy new movie coming out (Oliver Stone's Savages) and is the new face of Gucci?
Can life get any better for Blake Lively?!
