Well, this explains Blake Lively’s recent Parisian jaunt.

A source tells E! Online that the Gossip Girl beauty will be starring in a new ad campaign for Chanel’s handbag collection, and in fact just recently shot the campaign. The source adds that Lively’s ad campaign should launch early next year.
