Blake Lively is set to become the latest face of CHANEL.

The 'Gossip Girl' star will appear in a new campaign for the French fashion house's handbag collection which she shot, according to E! News, in Paris recently.

The campaign is set to launch early next year.

Blake has a close relationship with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld and in July, she was in The Front row of the Chanel Haute Couture show during Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week.

While she is to become the latest face of Chanel, Blake is a fan of high street stores and recently revealed how she thought Topshop had changed her life.

The 23-year-old beauty was thrilled when the British fashion chain launched a store in New York, and admitted it had had a dramatic effect on the way she dresses.

She said: "I love layering things. Autumn is always my favourite time of the year to get dressed. Ever since Topshop came to New York - it's changed my life!"
