The Blake Lively campaign video for Gucci Premiere has landed on YouTube, and it seems to be channeling another fragrance ad we know. Charlize Theron for Dior J'Adore, anyone? Curvaceous blonde American actress walking directly toward the camera? Check. Massive, elegant building? Check. Dramatic voice overs? Check. A whole big bunch of gold? Check. But Gucci did add a dream sequence and a desert to mix it up—plus, there's the whole five-frame slow-motion spritz happening in case you wanted to figure out Lively's good angle. Enjoy after the jump.
