Since 1991, French singer, composer, actress (and Johnny Depp paramour) Vanessa Paradis has been a model and muse to Karl Lagerfeld at Chanel. Her first appearance in a Chanel No.5 advertisement was as a bird of paradise, swinging gracefully in a grand cage. More recently, she posed for the new line of lipstick, Rouge Coco. Confession: I rushed out and bought a tube of the Mademoiselle shade because of her perfect pucker. Paradis just has a insouciant was of wearing Chanel that makes everything look less lady-lady, more Left Bank séductrice. Her latest project with the brand is no different. Coco Cocoon handbags are based on Lagerfeld’s love of comforting, plush pillows for travel. Styles are soft-structured, yet still maintain Chanel’s signature sophistication. Here, we go behind the scenes and show you the making of the new campaign starring Paradis.
