Lily-Rose Depp and Vanessa Paradis

Lily-Rose Depp and her mother, Vanessa Paradis, appear close. They are frequently spotted out together in public, boasting casual fashion styles and grabbing coffee together.

It’s also striking to see how similar they look on captured images – especially when looking back at what Paradis used to look like when she was her daughter’s age.

Paradis has touched many aspects of the performance industry, tackling singing, acting, and modeling. Her breakthrough came with a talent show when she was only eight years old in her country of origin, France.

Since this point, Lily-Rose’s mother can be found on more than a whopping three hundred magazine covers, including big names such as Elle, Glamor, and Harper’s Bazaar, not forgetting Vogue. Paradis has also released seven studio albums from 1988 to 2018 and made an appearance in over thirty films.

It appears that Lily-Rose Depp has followed in her mother’s bold footsteps, becoming an actress and model.

She snagged a role in Tusk, which kicked off her acting career, and then featured in the period drama, The Dancer.

Since then, she has strived for success in the acting industry, featuring in no less than four films just in 2021. As for modeling, Lily-Rise became a Chanel ambassador in 2015.

Vanessa Paradis and Johnny Depp

While Paradis and Depp bore two children, we cannot say this was the stereotypical love story with a happily-ever-after scenario.

After being romantically involved with rocker Lenny Kravitz for around six years, Paradis started seeing actor Johnny Depp, meeting in 1998 when he was filming The Ninth Gate in Paris.

Depp commented that Paradis was wearing a back-exposed dress when he first caught sight of her, seeing the back and neck before she turned around and revealed her captivating eyes.

Since this point, the couple first had Lily-Rose in 1999 when Paradis was just 26 years old and Depp was 36. They then went on to welcome their son Jack into the world back in 2002.

The couple spent 14 years together before breaking up in 2012. Within a hearing in April 2022, Depp admitted he’d cheated on Paradis with Amber Heard.

Depp met Heard for the first time in 2009 when working on the comedy-drama film The Rum Diary. However, it wasn’t until the year 2012 that this firecracker couple was first linked together following the Depp-Paradis split.

Lily-Rose on the Heard/Depp trial

It appears that the family drama of the Heard/Depp trial has not managed to tarnish the father and daughter’s relationship.

Lily-Rose’s relationship with her father remains robust, especially with Depp admitting he wanted to clear the record for the sake of his children.

However, the same cannot be said for Lily-Rose’s relations with Heard. While Amber insisted that she had a close bond with her stepdaughter, Lily-Rose thought differently, having not even attended Heard and Depp’s wedding.

Jack Depp

While Lily-Rose has become famous for her acting and modeling career, the public eye focuses much less on her younger sibling, Jack Depp.

Unlike his sister, Jack doesn’t appear to want to follow in his father and mother’s footsteps and lives most of his life away from the prying public. Keeping a low profile, Jack is barely ever photographed and doesn’t seem active on social media.

This ties into Paradis’ wish to keep her children away from the limelight, not wanting Lily-Rose and Jack to share her and Depp’s fame without their consent.

Conclusion

So, there you have it. It’s striking how much Lily-Rose Depp and her mother share similar qualities, from pure acting and modeling skills to flawless looks.

While scandal has followed Johnny Depp throughout these recent years, this has done nothing to disrupt the loving relationship he has with his children.

As seen in the article, Lily-Rose has remained on good terms with her father and continues to strive for new success in the acting industry each year. We can safely say that she’s made both of her parents proud!

She kept the rest of her look simple. The “Joe le taxi” singer swept her curly locks back, wore a swipe of red lipstick, and finished off her ensemble with simple black pumps.
