Diamonds are a girl’s best friend, Marilyn Monroe famously crooned — but for singer Vanessa Paradis, 37, the best gift of all turns out to be shoes — worn by the famous blonde herself! Turns out that Paradis’s partner Johnny Depp bought her a pair of Ferragamo-designed shoes that once belonged to Monroe. “He spoils me. He actually bought me the Marilyn Monroe shoes,” she tells the the U.K edition of Marie Clairein its August issue, when asked if Depp, 47, has ever treated her to clothes. Monroe is an icon for the French actress, who lives with Depp and their two children, Lily-Rose, 11, and Jack, 8, in southern France and first found fame as a pop star at age 14. She tells the magazine, “Monroe’s someone who touches me really deeply. I truly admire both actress and the singer that she was. I love Lazy and so many of her songs. She had a velvety voice.” Unfortunately, the actress and Chanel model is more dumbstruck when she has to talk about her look in three words. “Three words–im,poss,ible’ she responds. –Simon Perry
