Lily-Rose Depp was born to be a star. Depp may give off an air of untouchable, irreversible cool as the daughter of two renowned and beautiful celebs, the one and only Johnny Depp and French singer and model Vanessa Paradis, but she’s still just a regular 20-something — albeit a wealthy and famous one.
Depp’s career is still young, but his growing list of acting and modeling appearances — mostly in indie films rather than big-budget blockbusters — has ensured that everyone knows who owns that face. Depp may be young, but she’s already been nominated for a Cesar award (the French equivalent of an Oscar) and is dating a high-profile co-star. It’s apparent that this is a young lady whose journey is just getting started. Despite this, there is still so much to learn about her. Lily-Rose Depp has undergone a remarkable makeover.
Lily-Rose Depp Was Raised in A Family that Was Very Supportive of Her.
Unlike many of her peers, Lily-Rose Depp grew up in Europe, where her mother, Vanessa Paradis, stressed to her children the importance of being true to oneself and confident above all else. Of course, the iconic actress was speaking from experience, having raised eyebrows following the release of her 1987 song “Joe le Taxi,” in which a youngster cavorts with an older man, which was followed by a now-famous sultry Chanel commercial several years later in which Paradis appeared as a Lolita-style pin-up, according to The Face.
“People treated her horribly. “It was a different era,” Depp said in an interview with the journal. The actress and model spoke about how much of a “trailblazer” her mother was, noting that “women weren’t as praised for being secure in their sexuality” back in the day.
Lily-Rose Depp Has a Long-Standing Relationship with Chanel.
Most of us have terrible newborn photos we hope never to see, but Lily-Rose Depp has one that might easily end up in a fashion magazine based solely on its own merits. The Face refers to an old photo of the lady in question-posing in a diaper and her mother’s Chanel heels, appearing as effortlessly sophisticated as she does now. It’s no surprise that Depp caught the eye of legendary Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld.
Young Depp used to accompany her mother to fittings at the fashion house in the early 1990s, describing the experience as “so wonderful and magical” to Vogue Australia. According to Depp, Lagerfeld was “very kind, down to earth, and really sympathetic.” The model continues to be a fan of the French label, telling The Face that she even wears No. 5 perfume around the house.
Karl Lagerfeld Gave Lily-Rose Depp a Particular Place in His Heart.
When the opportunity to work for Chanel arose, Lily-Rose Depp’s grandmother, Corinne, acted as a go-between, just as she had for Paradis. It was 2015, and Depp, who was hardly known at the time, was overjoyed and shocked to be picked. “I dialed the number for the crew I’ve grown to know and admire. She gushed to The Face, “I chatted to them, talked to Karl, and it was just a really great time for me.” Being selected to front a campaign seemed like a homecoming for the teenage model, who had always loved the premium brand and particularly Lagerfeld.
“Chanel feels like a family in a way that no other workplace relationship has ever felt,” she told Vogue Hong Kong. I’ve known everyone on the team since I was a kid, and being able to work with them today is a major accomplishment for me. The art is excellent, but the individuals who created it are truly exceptional.” Depp credits her friendship with the late Karl Lagerfeld with launching her career.
Lily-Rose Depp Prefers Normalcy to Fame.
Despite having two famous parents, Lily-Rose Depp had a rather typical childhood. It was on purpose, she said Vogue Australia because neither her father nor Paradis wanted to put their daughter in the spotlight. “My parents have always wanted me to live as normal a life as possible and have instilled in me a strong sense of privacy and personal life,” she proudly added.
Given her mother’s struggles with the press, Depp learned early on that fame can be a double-edged sword. Despite the fact that she is active on Instagram and is constantly photographed by paparazzi, the French-American recognizes that there are some things she should keep to herself.

Lily-Rose Depp has spent a significant portion of her life online, given her age. Despite how much she enjoys giving followers a peek into her life, the actress and model are eager to point out that her Instagram feed isn’t complete. “People get the notion they know who I am,” she remarked in an interview with Hello! But I’m a really private, discreet person.”
In Tusk, Lily-Rose Depp Developed an Interest in Acting.
Lily-Rose Depp has one of the most known faces in young Hollywood, but she didn’t always see herself on the big screen. In fact, she landed her first role in Kevin Smith’s underappreciated biology horror-comedy Tusk by coincidence. Harley Quinn Smith, Smith’s daughter, had a small role in the film and suggested Depp, her real-life BFF, to play her on-screen companion.
“At first, I didn’t think my parents would allow it… I was shocked when I first heard about it.
