Blake Lively has reportedly been named as the face of Chanel's new Mademoiselle bag collection.

The Gossip Girl actress will appear in an advertising campaign shot by Karl Lagerfeld later this year, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

She told the trade journal that she felt like the "happiest, luckiest girl around" to have landed the opportunity.

The 23-year-old, who plays Serena van der Woodsen in the CW show, was photographed at the Chanel headquarters in Paris last year.

Lively reportedly met Lagerfeld through Vogue editor Anna Wintour. Earlier this year, she explained that she encountered Wintour at a runway show and the fashion world legend then offered to introduce her to Lagerfeld.

Gossip Girl returns to The CW on January 24.
