Lily-Rose Depp has just been named as the new face of Chanel.

The 16-year-old, daughter of Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp, is the latest ambassador for the luxury fashion house.

Her mother Vanessa, a singer and model, has been a spokesperson for the brand since 1991 so the news isn’t a major surprise.

Nevertheless, many have pointed out that Lily-Rose is very young to be taking on such a major fashion contract.

Chanel’s head honcho, Karl Lagerfeld, completely disagrees with this viewpoint and has said she’s the perfect choice to front the brand’s Pearl eyewear collection.

“Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star” said Lagerfeld.
