Vanessa Paradis lands fifth starring role for Chanel
Vanessa Paradis, the long-term partner of the actor, Johnny Depp, and the mother of his two children, has been confirmed as the new "face" of the Chanel "Coco Cocoon" collection of handbags.
This is the French actress and singer’s fifth starring role for the famous French brand.
A close friend of the Chanel designer and couturier, Karl Lagerfeld, she has previously fronted promotions for Coco perfume and Rouge Coco lipstick, and has been the ambassadress for the "Ligne Cambon" and "New Mademoiselle" handbags.
Most recently, Paradis appeared at the Cabaret Chanel Club, in Shanghai, for the presentation of the brand's Métiers d’Art collection, in Shanghai, in December, last year.
Vanessa Paradis is expected to be among the front-row guests when Lagerfeld shows his autumn/winter 2010/11 collection for Chanel, this morning, at the Grand Palais, as the Paris prêt-à-porter season enters its final two days.
