When we saw Lily-Rose Depp walk into Chanel's Paris-Salzburg show in New York this past April, we knew it could only be a matter of time before she was cast in a campaign for the brand. And that campaign has already arrived. The sixteen-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis is the face of Chanel's fall 2015 eyewear ads, following in the footsteps of many enigmatic celebrities, models and "It" girls, including her own mother, who has been a Chanel ambassador since 1990 and starred in a campaign (for the Girl handbag) as recently as this spring.
Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, Depp wears vintage-inspired round frames in a way that looks effortlessly cool, with a subtle angst that feels age-appropriate. "Lily-Rose is stunning, she's a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star," Lagerfeld said in a statement.
From her famous parents and preternaturally good looks to her exceptional social media skills and natural ability in front of the camera, we'd have to agree. Expect to see a lot more of her in the coming years.
