Unlike other privileged teenagers who attend debutante balls to mark their official entrée into society, Lily-Rose Depp’s coming out was at a Chanel show. With her mother, Vanessa Paradis, the teenager took in Karl Lagerfeld’s Paris-Salzburg Metiers d'Art collection in New York wearing an an embellished midriff-baring top and pencil skirt. Since then, she’s caught the attention of fashion’s elite and even Hollywood, but the bright spotlight shining on the 16-year-old has her father, actor Johnny Depp, switched on concerned parent mode.
In just a short amount of time, Lily-Rose has sat front row at a Haute Couture show playing poker, come out as “not-straight,” become the face of Chanel eyewear, been featured in a Vogue Paris editorial, and landed roles in multiple movies. A meteoric rise like that would give any parent anxiety attacks. But the Black Mass star does recognize this: “It’s her passion and she’s having fun.”
