Lily-Rose Depp has revealed Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld has helped her in quest to become a model and has been an important figure in her life since she was just eight years old.
The 16-year-old fashionista has revealed the Chanel creative director has been friends with her mother Vanessa Paradis for many years and she has known him since she was just eight.
As her modelling career has taken off, Lily-Rose has received lots of advice from Karl, 82, and it has proven to be invaluable to her.
In an interview with LOVE magazine, she said: ”Chanel has always been this big thing for me – there are baby pictures of me wearing my mom’s Chanel pumps. I have been lucky enough to know Karl since I was eight – yes, half my life. I have been so lucky to be around him and just talk to him. He makes people feel great. He is a presence. He’s very perceptive; I really feel like he understands people.”
Lily-Rose – whose father is Hollywood icon Johnny Depp – is slowly getting used to being famous in her own right but has been surprised by the amount of people who try and imitate her on social media for fun.
The model-and-aspiring actress said: ”I first started using social media when I was 12 or something – not publicly, I had private accounts – but even since then people have been pretending to be me, and my brother (Jack). It’s so annoying. It’s super weird.
”I would be much less stressed out without social media. I am constantly afraid of getting hacked. It’s like being afraid of stepping on glass.”
