Lily-Rose Depp Makes Parents ‘Proud’ at Chanel Launch Party

“I remember when they announced it,” Rachel Zoe mused at the Sunset Tower Thursday night. “It’s beautiful because her mother has been the face for so many years. Mother-daughter faces of Chanel.”

The legacy that the fashion stylist, designer, and long-time Chanel admirer described belonged to Lily-Rose Depp, who’s following the path of her mother, Vanessa Paradis.

Although her role seemed fitting, the 17-year-old model and actress who wore the Parisian house from head to toe, including perfume No. 5 L’Eau which she filmed a campaign for and served as cause for the night’s fête, spoke with Variety on the red carpet: “I would have never imagined that I’d be the face of Chanel,” and noted her father Johnny Depp and mother were both “proud.”

Inside, guests like Pharrell Williams and Chanel fragrance creator Olivier Polge were the first to hold court near the dance floor. The couple, along with others like Kristen Stewart, Milla Jovovich, Rowan Blanchard and nearly all attendees were also clad in Chanel. Perhaps, the only group who could rival the brand in numbers were the White Coats that helped circulate endless hors d’oeuvres and cocktails.

Once in their assigned seats, the candlelit dinner kept conversation’s anchored until after the second course when Depp and Stewart, in the know of a surprise performance, led the crowd to the terrace.

Closing a concert of hip-hop classics, Nas said, “It’s a pleasure to be here. I love Chanel and all that. One of the flyest brands in the world.”
