Despite being the daughter of famous personalities Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, 17-year-old Lily-Rose Depp is experiencing the typical ups and downs of teenage life. Born in Paris on May 27, 1999, Lily-Rose is not only a gifted French-American actress and model but also a blend of rich ethnicities.

Her heritage is majorly French and English, complemented by traces of Irish, Scots-Irish/Northern Irish, Scottish, Welsh, French-Canadian, Dutch, Flemish Belgian, German, a slight Italian influence, and a minuscule amount of African ancestry.

This vibrant lineage is a testament to her illustrious parents. Her father, Johnny Depp, originates from Owensboro, Kentucky.

On the other hand, her mother, Vanessa Paradis, a renowned French singer and actress, comes from Saint-Maur-des-Fossés, Val-de-Marne, France. Lily-Rose holds dual citizenship in the United States and France.

Lily-Rose awkwardly made her way through the 2016 Toronto International Film Festival to promote her film “Planetarium” alongside Hollywood big name Natalie Portman.

As the ambassador of Chanel’s N.5 L’Eau and the latest addition to the growing faces handpicked by Karl Lagerfeld, Lily-Rose naturally rocked a head-to-toe Chanel look.

The 17-year-old wore a complete runway look from Chanel’s Resort 2017 collection, which included a flapper dress-inspired chiffon-and-feather number paired with dreamy black sandals.

The budding actress looked awkward as she signed autographs for the crowd and waved hello as she sauntered on the red carpet. However, when the time came for her to pose for pictures, the teenager showed off her modeling prowess.

It looks like she gets it from her mom, Vanessa.
