Congratulations are in order for Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ daughter Lily-Rose, who has just been unveiled as the new face of Chanel’s latest fragrance, Chanel No. 5 L’Eau.

Earlier this month, the announcement came that the iconic fragrance was indeed getting a refresh, and now, with Lily-Rose as the scent’s muse, the much-loved perfume has been re-branded as a lighter, more youthful take on the classic.

Officially confirming the exciting news on May 23, the blonde beauty wrote via Instagram, “I’m so excited to announce that I am the face of the new Chanel Number 5 L’EAU!”

And the fashion house is equally excited to have the influential teen on board. “She embodies her generation and its values of freedom and boldness to perfection, bringing to the iconic fragrance of the House her youthful freshness and beauty,” Chanel said in a statement.

The blonde beauty is a long time wearer of the luxury label.

The budding actress, who is already the face for the Chanel Pearl eyewear range, now joins a coveted collection of Hollywood names that have fronted glorious Chanel campaigns.

She not only joins Keira Knightley, Kristen Stewart and Diane Kruger, but also her model mother Vanessa Paradis, who was the face of the Rouge Coco lipstick in 2010 before the two actually walked the runway together at Karl Lagerfeld’s Chanel Haute Couture show in Paris last year.

Karl Lagerfeld’s muse is a spitting image of her mum. Here, the mother-daughter duo pose for a happy snap when Lily Rose was a baby.

Speaking to Ellen DeGeneres of how his daughter has grown up right before his eyes, the Pirates of the Caribbean actor said: “She’s a sharp kid, very sophisticated, super intelligent and, uh, scary.”

“You come home and my daughter is sitting around doing her homework. ‘Oh what are you reading, baby?’ It’s the Odyssey by Homer. She starts asking me questions and you’re flummoxed, befuddled … what happened to Dr. Seuss?”

The fragrance, created by the brand’s perfumer Olivier Polge, is set to release later this year.
