For Lily-Rose Depp, growing up with supermodel mom Vanessa Paradis had its perks. “I’ve always been into makeup, even when I was little,” Johnny Depp’s daughter told InStyle magazine. "My mum would be getting ready, and I would ask the makeup artist to put lipstick or lip gloss on me." Since stepping out of her famous parents’s shadows, Lily has made a name for herself in the fashion and beauty world modeling for Chanel and landing the brand’s Chanel No. 5 L'eau campaign.
