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.

And she wasn’t the only star on the runway! Depp was joined by Chanel favorite Cara Delevingne, Sofia Richie and Pharrell Williams.

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.

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!”
