LOOK­ING CHIC IN A PRINTED tiered skirt and white T-shirt, beam­ing new­ly­wed Vanessa Par­adis lead the charge of style icons at Paris Haute Cou­ture Fash­ion Week in the

French cap­i­tal. In her first ap­pear­ance since mar­ry­ing film pro­ducer Sa­muel Benchetrit on June 30, the French ac­tress joined daugh­ter Lily-rose Depp, 19, and her ex-part­ner Johnny Depp’s close friend and

Pi­rates of the Caribbean co-star Pene­lope Cruz, at Chanel’s Fall/win­ter Haute Cou­ture pre­sen­ta­tion held in the Grand Palais on July 3.

In a tweed mini from the la­bel that showed off her tanned legs, Cruz was mak­ing her de­but as a Chanel brand am­bas­sador,

an an­nounce­ment that had been made that day. “It’s not just the im­age and the fan­tasy; you look at ev­ery sin­gle thing he cre­ates, he’s a true artist,” the 44-year-old ac­tress told fash­ion mag­a­zine WWD, prais­ing Chanel’s cre­ative direc­tor, Karl Lager­feld. “There are only a few of them, on that level of cre­ativ­ity, and al­ways rein­vent­ing them­selves. I have so much ad­mi­ra­tion for him.”

At Valentino, Depp’s ex-wife Am­ber Heard sat front row along­side Black-ish star Tracee El­lis Ross, Olivia Palermo and Ital­ian fash­ion icon Gio­vanna Battaglia as Cindy Craw­ford’s 16-year-old daugh­ter Kaia Ger­ber stormed the run­way in a pink off-the-shoul­der feath­ered gown and back-combed wig. “@maison­va­lentino words can­not de­scribe how much this mo­ment meant to me,” the teenager later wrote. “You are a vi­sion­ary and be­ing able to wear your art is a true honour.” •

“This hair mo­ment was every­thing and more,” model Kaia Ger­ber (ruf­fling feathers at the Valentino pre­sen­ta­tion on July 4) wrote on In­sta­gram, thank­ing stylist Guido Palau for her up-there look.

Nicky Hil­ton left her two lit­tle girls, Li­lyGrace, 2, and Teddy, 6 months, at home to at­tend the July 4 Valentino show. On July 5, Vic­to­ria Beck­ham wore an ivory maxi skirt and blouse on the streets of Paris. “Gor­geous cou­ture show to­day @chanelof­fi­cial. Thank you @kar­l­lager­feld,” Bri­tish singer Lily Allen posted af­ter the Chanel show on July 3. “Thank you @ an­tho­ny­vac­carello @ysl for the beau­ti­ful evening,” model Am­ber Val­letta posted on July 3 of the Vogue Foun­da­tion Din­ner.
