Vanessa Paradis For Harper’s Bazaar UK July 2010

French singer, actress and Chanel muse is the cover star for Harper’s Bazaar UK’s July 2010 issue.

In an exclusive interview she reveals that she didn’t ‘tame’ wild-child Johnny Depp.

The 37-year-old Parisian smoulders in a rare ten-page photo-shoot shot by Cerdic Buchet wearing only Chanel Haute Couture – of course.

The full interview appears in the July issue of Harper’s Bazaar UK which is on sale Monday June 7, but here are some extracts from her interview.

On being in the spotlight at such an early age: “After “Joe Le Taxi”, people seemed to think, “Oh my God! This 14-year-old is so ambitious, she must have parents pushing their little child like a puppet.” But it was more than that. When I was little, I discovered that I loved to sing, and I loved to be onstage.” Read More…

Chanel-Madame Figaro Party – Vanessa Paradis In Chanel

This is a rare treat to see Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis on the red carpet together.

They attended a party during Cannes Film Festival this week which was held in Vanessa’s honour by Chanel and Madame Figaro, with her favourite singer Patti Smith performing on the night.

Vanessa wore a multi coloured shimmering Chanel Resort 2010 halter dress which draped around her waist.

As much as I love her effortless style, I’m not crazy about her heels.

I would’ve preferred something more dainty and anonymous – like on the runway – as my eyes are constantly drawn to her heels when I want to focus on the dress.

I do however love her Chanel clutch and her arm candy.

Vanessa Paradis For Chanel Coco Cocoon

Vanessa Paradis is the face of Chanel.

Always has and always will be in my eyes.

We’ve seen her front various campaigns for Chanel over the years – most recently Chanel’s Rouge Coco – but now she’s replace Lily Allen as the face of Chanel’s Coco Cocoon bags.

Karl Lagerfeld shot the campaign showing the French star looking très chic wearing chunky knit caps with a sheer shirt and black silk camisole.

These images show Vanessa’s style, personality and inimitable allure.

If ever there was someone who could force me into liking this bag collection it’s Vanessa Paradis.

To see the full range of bags and a behind scenes video of Vanessa’s shoot with Uncle Karl go to coco-cocoon.chanel.com.

Fashion Dinner For Aids


I think this has to be one of the best dressed events of the year so far.

Diane Kruger will always – in my eyes – be one of the top 10 best dressed female celebrities in the world. I was not a fan of the Nina Ricci Spring 2009 collection, but trust Diane Kruger to make me fall in love.

Talk about bringing something to life.

This gown with a rise and fall hem, is absolutely stunning on Diane. The nude gown with multi coloured prints, really stands out. The cap sleeves barely reveal her shoulders, which is quite sexy, and less in your face than cleavage.

Her look is complete with a vibrant purple clutch, and strappy heels.

I don’t think I can gush about how much I love this enough.


Not only did Mischa Barton get a pair of Elie Saab Spring 2009 Couture heels, but she also got to wear this exquisite Elie Saab couture mint green gown.

When this gown was presented 2 days ago, I was attracted to the floral appliqués around the shoulders and bodice. I love how Mischa has taken this dress from an off-the-shoulder gown, to an asymmetric gown, but a part of me is very disappointed that this dress is now out of the running for the Oscars.

No one would knowingly pick this dress for the big O, now that Mischa has worn it, with all due respect to her.


Dita von Teese opted for a cocktail dress from the same collection.

The ice blue satin plunging dress was covered in very intricate silver embroidery, which really sparkles. Those details are no doubt the reason why Dita opted to keep her jewels to a bare minimum.

Her Louboutin’s sparkled as gloriously as her dress, and as you would expect Dita’s hair is immaculately styled, without a single strand out of place.

The look was complete with her trademark bold ruby red lips.


Milla Jovovich also wore a straight-off-the-runway gown from Elie Saab’s Spring 2009 Couture collection.

She opted for a less bling-out gown. But the beauty of this gown is in its simplicity, and the subtle details of the shimmering cap sleeves and criss cross detail on the waist.

The dove grey works well with her skin-tone, and the clutch is the perfect compliment.


French Model Laetitia Casta opted for a cutesy type Louis Vuitton black dress with a bows ruching her shoulder and skirt.

She may have picked a Resort dress, but he added a bit of an edge to her look with Louis Vuitton Spring 2009 heels.


Carla Bruni, France’s First Lady, took a night off wearing Dior to wear a stunning purple strapless YSL column gown, from the Edition Soir collection.

In all the pictures she has her clutch covering her gown, which is a shame because the majority of the detail is where her clutch is being held.


Vanessa Paradis pink strapless mini dress, is also covered by her woolly mammoth pink coat, which is also a shame because the pink dress looks heavenly against her skin.
