Chanel taps Lily-Rose Depp as its new face

Lily-Rose Depp has proven that the apple doesn’t fall far from the fashion tree, following in the footsteps of her iconic mom, Vanessa Paradis, as the new face of Chanel. Looking chic yet youthful, the 16-year-old is the star of the Pearl eyewear campaign, shot by creative director Karl Lagerfeld.

It may have been her first major fashion campaign, but Johnny Depp’s daughter already looked every inch a supermodel as she posed in the close-up shots in front of a pastel background.

Posing in a pair of cream sunglasses and a matching blazer with a peter pan collar and three-quarter length sleeves, Lily-Rose has clearly inherited her mother’s beauty, wearing her blonde bob down in tousled waves and rocking a dark pink lipstick.

Lily-Rose is stunning,” said Karl in a statement, explaining why he chose the rising star for the images. “She’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star.”

It comes as no surprise that Lily-Rose has become a muse for the designer – she already has a close relationship with the brand thanks to mom Vanessa who herself has fronted various Chanel campaigns.

The stylish teen made waves earlier this year when she made a rare public appearance and joined her mother for Chanel’s Metiers d’Art show in Salzburg. Many fashionistas hailed Lily-Rose as a style icon in the making as she stepped out in a pale blue embellished crop top and pencil skirt, with a silver belt around her waist and a scarf draped around her neck.

Earlier this week the mother-daughter duo once again showed their support for Karl as they headed to Chanel’s casino-themed haute couture Autumn/Winter 2015 show. Held at the opulent Grand Palais, they joined A-listers including Julianne Moore, Kristen Stewart and Lily Collins, placing bets at the catwalk’s roulette wheel and blackjack table.
