With Johnny Depp on her arm and Karl Lagerfeld by her side Vanessa Paradis is the woman who has it all.
She has been making her mark in the style stakes since the 80s with her individual look that combines a mix of quirky vintage, boho chic and feminine pieces.
Vanessa’s daytime look is laid back; a mix of understated charm and floaty fabrics in muted tones. She loves anything that flows, including maxi dresses and oversized blouses in feminine fabrics. Teamed with her naturally wavy hair, Vanessa’s look is the epitome of boho chic.
By night her look is a perfect mix of feminine allure, old school glamour with a twist of grunge. She plays up textiles with lots of fur, leather, sequins and metallics. Never one to shy away she flashes the flesh in sheer fabric, slashed necklines and thigh high splits.
In terms of accessories, Vanessa loves a vintage gem as much as the next. Her looks sees lots of floppy sun hats, tan belts, scarves and boots.
For her evening look, she chooses her trimmings depending on the era she is channelling. From fascinators to bows, jewellery to clutches, one thing's for sure, Vanessa’s style always does the talking.
Tips on getting the look:
Keep it simple - think pare down Parisian chic and you won’t go far wrong
Keep hair undone and sexy - ditch the strengtheners
Add texture and don’t be afraid to play around
Chanel lippy in red is a must-obviously!
