You’d think with the jaw-dropping covers Vanessa Paradis has provided us in the past, daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp would be doing just fine in the photogenic department. In January, LOVE magazine did a number on the Chanel ambassador with a cover shot of Lily-Rose wearing a face full of garish makeup and now Vanity Fair France serves up a fairly generic and lifeless cover for May 2016. Photographed by Scott Trindle, the 16-year-old looks pretty uncomfortable in the portrait cover image and our eagle-eyed forum members picked up on the awkwardness immediately.
“What an ugly cover. One of the worst of her,” pointed out narcyza straight away, about to set the tone for comments to come.
“Prime example of someone who can take good pictures of themselves but fails when it comes to pictures being taken of them by other people. See also: Kendall [Jenner],” laughed Elite13.
In the same frame of mind was Frenchkiki, echoing, “This girl can’t take a good picture to save her life.”
HeatherAnne wasn’t buying into it, either, adding, “With every new snap she becomes more boring to me…”
“Poor thing, she really blew it with that shocking LOVE magazine moment… (File next to Coco Sumner and all the other Katie Grand misfires.) It will take a lot more than this to resurrect her now,” chimed in an uninterested lewak.
Benn98 felt a little uncertain about the cover, too. “I’m still a bit perplexed why she’d get a Vanity Fair cover. Don’t you need a strong following to warrant one? The French are sure going hard at this nepotism thing. Kaia Gerber and Lottie Moss on Vogue Paris, Laetitia Casta’s sister on Lui and now Lily on VF.”
“I don’t mind her but I’m sort of tired of fashion people trying to make her a fashion icon. UGH. And hate that Chanel has embraced the hype…” disapproved a frustrated Creative.
