Lily-Rose Depp Named New Face of Chanel

It was only a matter of time before Lily-Rose Depp landed an “official” position with Chanel. She was spotted on the sidelines during the restaging of the Métiers d’Art collection in New York and even took an underage trip to the casino for the couture show in Paris. Named the newest ambassador of the storied French house, the 16-year-old serves as the face of the Pearl eyewear collection (out in September). Sporting round frames studded with precious white beads in the ad, Depp is depicted as a “baby doll in a world imbued with sweetness and femininity.” (And that description isn’t so far from the truth, as this celebuspawn—comprised of equal parts fashion and Hollywood royalty—recently posted a side-by-side photo from the American Girl doll store on Instagram, appropriately captioned: “Bitch stole my look.”) While her campaign isn’t nearly as trippy as her model mom’s starring role in Jean-Paul Goude’s commercial for Coco perfume—during which Vanessa Paradis swings precariously from a perch inside a life-size birdcage—we definitely see why Karl is keeping it in the family. “Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,” explained Lagerfeld. Will a mother-daughter beauty spot be next? By the look of that lipstick on a fresh-faced Depp, one can only hope a makeup contract is already in the works.
