Lily-Rose Depp: My Parents Are 'Supportive of Everything That I Do'
The new face of Chanel's No.5 L'EAU says her parents Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis support her rising career
“For me, Chanel has always been the highest level of fashion and class that there ever could be,” Lily-Rose tells PEOPLE at an intimate Chanel dinner celebrating the fragrance at Sunset Tower in Los Angeles on Sept. 22. “My whole childhood I just grew up with that notion, and just loving Chanel so much, and thinking it was the most beautiful and elegant.”

And the star says her famous parents – dad is Johnny Depp, mom is French actress-singer Vanessa Paradis – are more than supportive of her burgeoning career. “They were really excited, just like any parents would be,” says Lily-Rose of the hot new campaign. “They were just really happy for me, and really excited.”
Still, the 17-year-old says she’s forging her own path when it comes to the fashion world. “[My parents] aren’t really the kind of people who would [offer advice] unless I asked for it,” she says. “I’m really independent and they are very supportive of everything I do.”
