When I was still reading Seventeen, and Vanessa Paradis was 17, I remember how enamored I was of her. Even then, she was already a face for Chanel parfum, as well as a popular singer and actress in France. For years she went under the radar in the U.S., until Johnny Depp swept her up and brought her back in the U.S. spotlight. She is once again, the face for Chanel this time for accessories, and has continued to be an artist in her own right. Although a true beauty, I must say I do think she is even more beautiful at this age, than she was when I first laid eyes on her.
