Los Angeles: `Gossip Girl` star Blake Lively has been announced the brand ambassador of L`Oreal Paris.

The company announced the news on Tuesday via Instagram, attaching a photo of Lively wearing a white dress, reported Aceshowbiz.

The 26-year-old was all smiles as she appeared in front of audience at the presentation. She later shared a kiss on the cheek with L`Oreal boss Cyril Chapuy.

Actor Ryan Reynolds` wife will be the company`s model for make-up, colouring, and hair care, joining L`Oreal`s previous ambassadors such as Jennifer Lopez and Beyonce Knowles.
