    Lily-Rose Depp is breaking into the world of fashion and film, spotted at all the coolest parties, in the hottest ad campaigns and, well, just hanging out with all the icons she calls family.

    Here’s why we can’t get enough of her…

    She wore our dream dress to her prom
    She may be 17, but LRD has her personal style well and truly fine-tuned. Case in point: the incredible dress which she wore to her prom AKA ‘Leavers Ball’. The director of her latest film (and her best friend’s dad) Kevin Smith posted this stunning photo of Lily and Harley Quinn Smith at their first ever prom, writing, ‘Last night, the @yogahosers went to Prom! @harleyquinnnn_ & @lilyrose_depp had dates of course but (ever on guard for thee) they were there strictly to chew bubble gum and squish Bratzis! And from all reports, they were all out of bubble gum… #harleyquinnsmith #lilyrosedepp #yogahosers #thecolleens #prom #losangeles #harleyquinn’. No word yet on who Lily wore, but we’ll guess Chanel, non?


    She’s a family girl
    Yes Lily-Rose Depp is the daughter of Pirates Of The Caribbean actor Johnny Depp and the singer, model and Chanel muse Vanessa Paradis. Talk about being genetically #blessed! She is known to have a great relationship with both of her parents, sticking by their sides through thick and thin.

    She’s the face of Chanel
    Lily-Rose has got the ultimate seal of approval from fashion’s overlord, Karl Lagerfeld, last summer, starring in the brand’s Pearl Collection campaign. ‘Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,’ says Karl. Miss Depp had been building up to her Chanel gig for months, putting in the hours by attending the brand’s New York presentation in April and gambling in Karl’s couture casino with Julianne Moore and Kristen Stewart earlier this year. Her mother Vanessa has collaborated with the French fashion house non-stop since 1990, so really Chanel has been in Lily-Rose’s DNA from birth.

    She’s an actress too

    Naturally! Yes as well as following in her mother’s footsteps as a Chanel model, Lily’s also taking acting tips from her dad and is set to star in three upcoming films including Yoga Hosers (starring alongside Johnny) and Planetarium with Natalie Portman. Talk about a dream career start.

    Her personal style is très, très chic

    She was born in Paris. Her mum’s a French style icon. We have therefore expected Lily-Rose to make waves as a fashionista of the future from birth. She’s experimenting with everything from chokers and bandeaus to grungy bombers and socks ‘n sandal combos. And it all looks amazing, obviously.

    She’s in a music video

    Of course she is! She’s working it like a young Grace Kelly in Irish rapper Rejjie Snow’s video for new track All Around The World.  

    You need to follow her on Instagram, stat.
    Lounging around on Coco’s couch, shopping for back to school supplies with dad Johnny… It’s ALL right here. 

    She knows how to work an accent

    Lily’s acting talents are on full display in Yoga Hosers, her debut film which she recently premiered at Sundance. The comedy horror sees the model/actress put on her best Canadian accent, and show off her dry wit that father Johnny would definitely be proud of.
