It isn’t exactly a rock and a hard place, but we don’t envy Blake Lively for having to choose between erstwhile employees Chanel and Gucci, whose payroll she is now on.
Despite the bitter envy though, we have to say she looks awesome – loving the vintage waves and the incredible gold dress.
Never mind the perfume she’s advertising (Gucci Premiere), we want the dress.
The ad is to be followed up with a short flick shown at Cannes shot by Nicholas Wending Refn (you’re no one in the beauty industry these days if you don’t have an award-winning film with your fragrance launch, see Dior for evidence).
As fashionista.com points out, the pic, shot by Mert and Marcus, has Blake looking into a mirrored wall so we get both her profile and her full face… and Gucci get two for the price of one.
Well if you’re going to pay what it takes to lure a girl away from Chanel you damn well wanna get your money’s worth.
