Lily-Rose Depp, the 16-year-old daughter of Johnny Depp and model Vanessa Paradis, has been named the new ambassador for Chanel.

The French fashion house recently released photos of the young starlet for its new campaign supporting the Pearl eyewear collection. “Karl Lagerfeld has chosen her to be the face of the Pearl eyewear collection where the young actress plays a baby-doll in a world imbued with sweetness and femininity,” according to a press release. The announcement doesn’t come as much of a surprise, though, after Lagerfeld included Depp in his Fall-Winter 2015/16 Haute Couture showcase in Paris earlier this month - after first aligning with the young starlet at his Paris-Salzburg 2014/15 Metiers d’Art collection in New York in April.

Depp’s mother, Paradis, has also been a longtime friend of Lagerfeld and ambassador for Chanel since 1990. “Lily-Rose is stunning, she’s a young girl from a new generation with all the qualities of a star,” Lagerfeld said in the press release. The Lagerfeld-shot Pearl eyewear collection advertising campaig is expected to launch in September. Fans of Native Shoes’ Apollo style are in for a light - and very bright - surprise.

The Vancouver-based company recently unveiled its limited-edition release of their newest shoe style, the Apollo Moc. “The modernized moccasin will be released in an all over white microfibre upper and EVA outsole,” according to a press release. In short, it’s pretty much the ultimate non-colour colourway sneaker fans have been waiting for in this lightweight design. While the colour of the Apollo Moc release is different, the shoe itself is not: it’s still washable and 100 per cent-animal free.

The bi-weekly The Seams Podcast covers all facets of the industry - from trends and history to ethical issues and sustainability. “We’ve only begun to sit down with some of the smartest, most creative and interesting people I’ve ever interviewed,” Lyden said in a press release. “Historians, designers, professors - all get you to think - and they’re witty and engaged with the changing world. We’ve not heard nearly enough from them in public radio.”

Launched across print, digital and social channels last week, the initiative showcases three influencers, blogger-turned-editor Tavi Gevinson, DJ and health guru Hannah Bronfman and Australian style star Margaret Zhang, to be the faces of the campaign.

“These women are making waves in society, and are challenging the status quo,” the company said in a press release. “From the world of fashion, lifestyle, health, and the arts, they have accomplished great things at a young age, and are not afraid to challenge and break boundaries.

They exemplify this generation’s penchant for achievement and capture Clinique’s mission to inspire and motivate women around the world.”
