Style Icon: Vanessa Paradis – French Fancy

Chères Readers,

Two things:

1. Seeing as the weather has returned to cold and has plummeted back down to 3 degrees or something; along with

2. The fact that all flights across the country are grounded and there is no hope of flying off somewhere hot.

I’ve plonked myself next the fire to catch up on some magazine reading. Among other things, French Vogue, L’Officiel etc.. I was reading Teen Vogue. As well as stuff inside (honest), I caught the back cover Ad; the new Chanel Coco Rouge with Vanessa Paradis. I know the ads have been out a while and there really is nothing new to say but it just reminded me of how amazing she is:

Plus it sparked my first ever memory of Chanel. Vanessa Paradis dressed as a bird (of Paradise I presume) on a swing in a birdcage. Pure magic. This ad she did for Coco Chanel perfume is 18 years old! I’m genuinely shocked.  I used to have a copy of this photo on the wall in my bedroom when I was in school.

With cheekbones like that it’s no wonder Chanel are still using her in their ad campaigns. I’ve posted a few more of my fave pics: Chanel:

Pretty Editorial

Positively Fierce Editorial, I absolutely love this photograph.

    Absolutely adore Vanessa! When I lived in France I had the honour of meeting her – well bumping into her – and she is even prettier in real life, almost doll-like… Im a huge fan of her music too. And her partner 🙂

    She’s amazing. I remember the original ads for Coco, and seeing pics of her and Lenny Kravitz together at that time, and just thinking she was the coolest girl in the world! She has such an unusual beauty. Great post!
