Front and center! Following up her Chanel No. 5 ad for the house, Lily-Rose Depp finally made her runway modeling debut at Chanel’s latest show — where else? — at the Ritz Paris on Tuesday, December 6.
The 17-year-old model and budding actress, whose mother, Vanessa Paradis, has long modeled for Chanel, opened the show in a gold-sequined two-piece ensemble, accessorized with a black headpiece and lace-up shoes.
The Planetarium star followed up that look with a classic Chanel LBD, complete with oh-so-Chanel rosette accents. She also rocked a veiled headpiece and leather booties.
Depp complemented both numbers with edgy beauty: a low ponytail, artfully tousled with tendrils pulled loose, a rose-hued lip and black-and-white statement eye makeup.
While the rising star has posed for the Chanel eyewear and Chanel No. 5 campaigns, this is the first time she actually participated in one of the house’s epic fashion shows, as opposed to attending as a guest alongside Paradis. This time, Paradis, who shares Lily-Rose with Johnny Depp, sat solo in the audience, looking on proudly.
Later, via Instagram, Depp gushed about the experience. “Thank you so much @chanelofficial for letting me open this beautiful show. Such an honor to be a part of this!!” she captioned a runway shot. “And thank @karllagerfeld for letting me wear two incredible pieces ❤️❤️❤️ Love the chanel family so much!”
