It’s a big fkn deal for any young model to open a show, let alone one for Chanel. And to be chosen over Cara Delevingne?
Karl Lagerfeld gave Lily-Rose Depp – the A-list spawn of Johnny and Vanessa Paradis – the honour of kicking off the French fashion house’s annual Metiers d’Arts show in Paris – and for her first major runway debut, no less.
The 17-year-old was followed by longtime Chanel muses Cara and Pharrell Williams, plus newcomer Sofia Richie (Lionel’s daughter) at the private show in a saloon at the Ritz Paris (all v. posh).
Beautiful @lilyrose_depp opens @chanelofficial fashion show at Ritz. Followed by the one and only @caradelevingne #chanelmetiersdart #pariscosmopolite #video #defile #fashion #show #paris #ritz #live #llulyrosedepp #caradelevingne #cindysimo
Cara didn’t mind being trumped by a fresh face, though: she jigged her way down the makeshift runway as only Cara would.
Intensely chic vibes.
