Blake Lively has been tapped to front Gucci's upcoming Gucci Premiére eau de parfum campaign, a new scent created to represent the brand's red carpet inspired collection.
Frida Giannini, Gucci's Creative Director, stated, “In conceiving this fragrance I was inspired by timeless Hollywood glamor and the iconic leading ladies of Hollywood’s golden era. Blake’s unique style and charisma brings that allure to life in a very contemporary way.”

Lively stated, “It is a pleasure to collaborate with Frida Giannini. I admire the qualities of the Gucci Première woman and feel honored to represent the fragrance.”
