Not that you needed an official confirmation, but here we go: Blake Lively (Serena) has finally been named as the new face of Chanel handbags.

The Gossip Girl star is featured in the advertising campaign for the new "Mademoiselle" bag, which was designed by Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld. "She's a kind of American dream girl," Lagerfeld told WWD. "I think she will become a great actress."

For her part, Lively is excited to be part of such a prestigious company. "A dream come true is an understatement. I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around."
