Yesterday it was anncounced that Blake is the new face of L’Oreal Paris and she is talking to Australia’s Cosmo magazine. She covers their December issue. Click for a full size view of her cover!
Blake Lively has been lying low since the end of Gossip Girl last year but it seems like her brief vacation from the limelight is about to end.
Ryan Reynolds’ ladylove is set to be the new face of L’Oréal Paris, sources tell E! News. The actress apparently inked a major multimillion deal with the beauty brand to appear in a series of ads starting next year. She will be joining a team of A-list spokesmodels that includes Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé.
This news comes just weeks after it was announced that the blond bombshell would be replacing Katherine Heigl in the upcoming film The Age of Adaline—her first movie role in over a year.
In that time, the actress has seemed to be enjoying her quite newlywed life with husband Ryan Reynolds in upstate New York. But when she’s not giving cooking lessons or designing the couple’s kitchen, the 26-year-old has been fulfilling her duties for another major label: Gucci. The star has been the face of the Italian brand’s fragrance Premiere for over a year now.
Taking into account her gorgeous campaign for the scent and the actress’s flawless beauty record on the red carpet, this pairing seems like a no brainer.
The brand has just confirmed this announcement on their French Instagram account. Posting photo of their new spokesmodel who flashed a grin while donning a lovely off the shoulder frock with glittery belt.
As you can see we have a new look here at Blake Lively Fan. I really loved the last one but I thought it was time for a change with Blake going back to work on her new project. This layout features photos from Blake’s Lucky photoshoot earlier this year. My thanks to Sina for making the layout! If you see any errors please let me know. I have also added a photoshoot that I’ve had sitting on my computer for a while.

GUCCI PARFUMS has teamed up with The Perfume Shop this Christmas to offer a £2 donation to the fashion house’s Chime For Change initiative with every purchase of selected Gucci fragrances. Customers will have the opportunity to personally select an area – education, health or justice – into which their money can be channelled, with the campaign supported by Gucci fragrance faces Blake Lively, James Franco and Evan Rachel Wood.
“Gucci is such an iconic fashion house – you look to it and you think of the equestrian women who are so strong and then feminine women in these diaphanous gowns – but then all of the aesthetic aside, what I’ve been most moved by is its philanthropy,” Lively told us. “I mean, look at the Chime for Change initiative. It takes up such a chunk of so many people’s time, and energy and resources and finances, but it’s so important to give back and you can’t lose sight of that.”
This summer, Gucci’s Chime For Change concert in London brought the initiative’s vision to a wider audience, with Beyoncé as the headline act and speakers including Madonna, Jessica Chastain and Lively herself.
“To be at that Chime For Change event and see everyone from Jessica Chastain to a woman from India who’s freed herself from a life not worth living – and each being just as celebrated – was amazing. There are so many people with such a powerful story and to give them that platform is so moving,” she said.
And it seems Lively, who exclusively told us about her new business in September, was just as star struck by headline act Beyoncé as the crowd.
“Oh my gosh, Beyoncé is just amazing,” she confided. “I saw Jay-Z backstage at her last concert and he was like ‘Are you on tour with us? Because I’ve seen you back here so many times by this point.'”

Added Lakeshore prexy Lucchesi: “Lee Toland Krieger is one of the most stylish young filmmakers working in Hollywood today. He is visually imaginative and possesses a strong narrative sense.”
