LILY Rose Depp, daughter of Johnny Depp and his ex-partner Vanessa Paradis, is the face of Chanel Pearl eyewear collection, launched last September, and now, its new fragrance, N°5 L’EAU, created by Olivier Polge.
Directed by Johan Renck, the new campaign is slated for Fall 2016.
Like most teens, Lily Rose took to her Instagram account to announce this new project with a picture of her kissing an enlarged bottle of the new Chanel signature scent. Her caption: “I’m so excited to announce that I am the face of the new Chanel Number 5 L’EAU! @chanelofficial#newchanel5 (sic). ”
Kids who dress
When we were kids my mom would dress my sister and I alike. On special occasions she would also have something made with the same fabric.
Now I make sure to dress my kids Balthazar, Dimitri and Benito to the nines—at least for their age. Styling and guiding them in their sartorial choices is one of the maternal duties that I take seriously.
And it looks like I’m not the only one who thinks like this. Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice-turned-Posh Mom of the Millennium, has reared four-year-old Harper Beckham into a fashionable ball of cute. The latter’s style is well-documented and well-informed. Harper’s a big fan of only the biggest names—from Chloé to Marc Jacobs to Burberry—and to be honest, I don’t blame her one bit.
Then there’s North West. When you have Kim K and Kanye as parents, expect to stand out with a fur coat among a basic, turtleneck-wearing crowd. North’s a lot more experimental, pairing a camouflage jacket with a tulle skirt once then transitioning to a muscle tee-and-choker combo right after. On some days, she supports Daddy and wears his latest fall line.
But it’s not just the celebrity kids getting attention. Instagram’s stylish toddlers are making rounds in the liking crowd. Stylist and creative consultant Luisa Fernanda Espinosa takes snapshots—and most likely styles—of her son Alonso Mateo. This sharply dressed kid puts adult men to shame. I mean, just look at how he sports that printed poncho. (See top right photo.)
Nine-year-old Gavin Logan is a different story. A dancer, actor, model and talent, this kid should add “fashionista” to his resume. Gavin updates contemporary street style with some pastels and a full dose of attitude—a youthful spunk often missing from today’s younger bloggers. (See right photo.)
It’s great to see how parents can influence their children’s style—but even better to see how children bring the fashion to life. In all honesty I just have fun when dressing up my kids. I do know there are much more important things in life than a cute outfit, but I try to enjoy the stage when they still wear what I prepare for them.
