Eric Daman: Blake Lively “Always Has Her Panties On”
One person not surprised that Blake Lively (Serena) has become the face of Chanel? Gossip Girl designer Eric Daman. “You know, she was approached with a lot of other offers but I think she made a very wise choice,” he said at the launch event for his latest Charlotte Russe collection.
“I’m not surprised about the news. You know, she grew up loving Chanel, she’s a muse to Karl [Lagerfeld]. She’s beautiful, she really has become this icon and I think it was a very smart choice,” he added. “It’s like a Princess Grace thing, but she’s also an all-American beauty while still being understood and appreciated in Europe. I think Karl is inspired with her because she’s like a breath of fresh air. She’s like a glistening disco ball, whenever you’re around her she sparkles. I she’s a great teenage icon, you know she’s not running around partying, she’s never out, and she always has her panties on! She’s a great role model — even her body, she has a shape you know she’s not a size two or a tiny girl.” Disco ball, huh? We’re sure Blake is loving that comparison.
