If one brand sets the tone for French-style, it’s Chanel. And each season, the front rows of its runways are populated by women who embody the elegant, Parisienne spirit of the house that Coco built. This morning’s spring/summer 2021 show was a who’s who of French cinema with icons like Marion Cotillard, Isabelle Adjani, and Vanessa Paradis filling the Grand Palais to view Virginie Viard’s latest work. Amidst all the little black jackets and monochromatic outfits, one guest brought a welcome dose of whimsy. In her petal pink boucle blazer and gold-flecked tube-top, Lily-Rose Depp was an outlier. As one of Chanel’s ambassadors, the 21-year-old actor regularly wears the double C logo, but the sorbet tones and high waisted denim she chose for today’s event were unexpected. Everything from the patchwork pockets on her jeans to her golden belly chain felt youthful and casual.
