Vanessa Paradis for Chanel Cocoon Spring 2010

I must say, I really disliked the Lily Allen Cocoon ads last year…to style that girl as Audrey Hepburn’s most iconic character – that, to me, was blasphemous. There’s nothing Chanel or Audrey about Lilly.

Vanessa Paradis, however, is no Lilly Allen. She “screams” Chanel to me…that French je ne sais quoi that Parisian girls quite simply own – she’s definitely got it. Most people know her as Johnny Depp’s beautiful partner (in crime?), but to me, she’ll always be the “Joe le Taxi” girl! Her chic style has always been a huge inspiration to many, myself included. And I am very pleased with Karl’s choice this time around.

Love the softness of these images and the glint of naughty in her eyes in the top photo! Now if only she wasn’t holding the Cocoon bags! I never understood the appeal…to me, they are just so…ugly! Can’t find another word to say it. Not my cup of bag (let’s make this a thing!)…Do you like the bags? Vanessa? Hate the whole bloody campaign? Let me know in the comments!

Oh, and click here to watch my fave video of Vanessa, talking about falling in love with Johnny…le sigh.
