I feel like she is such a random choice for Gucci...I just don't see how she fits with their other celeb model--Charlotte Casiraghi. I wonder if this was an Anna decision a la Chanel.

^ Maybe Salma Hayek put in a suggestion at Gucci. They became close while filming Savages. I'm pretty sure Frida didn't just wake up one day and decide Blake Lively was going to be her new muse.

I don't think she's random at all if you look at other celeb models like Evan Rachel Wood, Jennifer Lopez...

Random pick, favor from Salma, whatever! The girl got the gig and she's smoking hot, period.

I was expecting a long gown, but I guess the party was more casual based on what everyone was wearing. I really like the color of Blake's dress, but I'm not thrilled with all the frou frou around the shoulders. She works it, though.

It's not the first time Gucci has used a young actress in their campaigns, and Frida Giannini seems to really like her (and I'm not sure she would be much more amenable to being told who to hire than Anna Wintour. ) From an interview earlier this year, before Blake had signed on:

Blake Lively. There are lots of new actresses out there but—how can I put this?—many of them look the same. Blake is really the only one who has this sophisticated newness and attitude.

I like how she was outfitted in Gucci on the way out of Venice- and had someone else hold that big Chanel bag lol. The jacket is cool and it looks great with the men's shirt.

I don't think she'll be cutting her hair anytime soon. It gets a lot of love outside this room. And it's very versatile - she wears it in different braids, wavy, straight, up, down and in between. But she looks really good with it up so there's no reason a shorter style wouldn't work. I can see her with a shorter, wavy Cybill Shepherd-style cut someday.

That style sounds great, I agree she needs to change her hair a bit.

She can't really change her hair because of Gossip Girl. Even for Green Lantern, she had to wait till the very last minute to dye it, and even then she had to wear a wig cos she couldnt dye it as black as they wanted her to. and even when she dyed her hair red; it was because she was done with shooting that season of GG.

Once her obligations with GG are over - I think she will experiment more.

But I agree it would be nice to see her with a different style. I really loved her as a brunette & would like to see her totally black/raven. And to see her with a shorter style (but not too short).

I love her photo-ops. They don't look spontaneous one bit. Not a fan of the hat with this outfit.

Another disastrous hat choice. The top and the, uh, jeggings look good on her, though.
