Lagerfeld’s new Chanel muse? Lily-Rose Depp

The rising star lands her first campaign, just days after hitting the Chanel couture casino

OK, who saw this coming? After making her fashion world debut as a guest at Chanel’s New York Métiers d’Art show back in March, actress and celebrity daughter Lily-Rose Depp has scored her first campaign for the house. Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, the 16-year-old is the new face of the label’s eyewear, posing in circular, pearl-decorated frames. Depp follows in the footsteps of other Chanel celebrity muses including Kristen Stewart, Lily Allen and her own mother, Vanessa Paradis, who has been modelling for the brand for decades. “Lily-Rose is stunning, she's a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,” said Lagerfeld of his new muse.

The campaign comes just days after Depp was spotted sitting down at a table in the Chanel casino, the elaborate Monte Carlo style set created by the house for their AW15 couture show. The actress was seen playing cards alongside the likes of Julianne Moore, Lara Stone and Isabelle Huppert, appearing arm in arm with fellow famous offspring Lily Collins. Depp also recently appeared in a new video for Irish rapper Rejjie Snow, and will make her first major debut opposite her father Johnny in a comedy horror called Yoga Hosers later this year.
