Earlier today, the most anticipated ready-to-wear show of the season kicked off at the Grand Palais in Paris. Chanel reigning King of the world (or so we must infer from the giant globe in the centre of the room), Karl Lagerfeld was there to greet his famous fashionable fans that included Vanessa Paradis, Leigh Lezark, Alice Dellal, Anna Wintour, Livia Firth, Milla Jovovich, Princess Caroline of Hanover, Jessica Chastain and Clotilde Hesme.

Congratulations to Vanessa Paradis who has just been named the new face of Swedish mega-brand H&M's Concious Collection campaign for Spring/Summer 2013. The niche line, which focuses on being eco-friendly is all made from sustainable materials like organic cotton, recycled polyester and Tencel and will available to the masses this March. Vanessa, who turned 40 this year said,
"I try my best to shop consciously, and vintage is very much part of my wardrobe. I love the style, and it works in an eco-friendly way because I like to use and reuse old clothes."
Check out images from the campaign, plus pieces from the collection here and watch a peek into some of the footage from the shoot above!
From blindsiding breakups to amicable partings, 2012 brought on some shocking splits in Hollywood. Comedic power couple Will Arnett and Amy Poehler parted ways, while Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis finally confirmed their breakup. Heidi Klum and Seal had seven years and four kids together prior to calling it quits, and Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise called time after year five. Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz were together for just one year before their breakup. Longtime couples Tina and Joe Simpson, Danielle Spencer and Russell Crowe, as well as Peter Facinelli and Jennie Garth, parted. Tell us — which was the most shocking?

Diane Kruger and Vanessa Paradis made the rounds at Paris's annual Sidaction benefit, proceeds of which go toward AIDS charities. The event, now in its tenth year, is one of the social centerpieces of Couture Fashion Week, and Diane and Vanessa have both been busy shuttling between shows and parties over the last few days. Yesterday, they caught up with friends like a Nina-Ricci clad Clémence Poésy, model Anja Rubik, and designer Christian Louboutin. Diane wore a lacy Erdem gown, while Vanessa was decked out in sequined Chanel.
The front row duties have been mixed in with interviews for Vanessa. She's simultaneously talking up her new movie Café de Flore, which came out in France earlier this week. While making the press rounds, she addressed the recent rumors about a split with longtime love Johnny Depp. Vanessa called the stories "false," hopefully putting an end to the latest round of speculation about their romance.
Today's Chanel fashion show brought A-list guests to the Grand Palais in Paris. Cameron Diaz continued making the rounds during Couture Fashion Week, and she was joined by Diane Kruger and Vanessa Paradis. All three ladies modeled Karl Lagerfeld's designs, and once inside, they took seats alongside other Karl favorites like Daphne Guinness, Alice Dellal, and Poppy Delevigne.
This was Cameron's third show since arriving in France. She kicked things off at Versace, then stepped out for the Dior presentation. Vanessa, meanwhile, has been avoiding any fallout from the Johnny Depp breakup rumors by sticking close to her French home in recent days. She stepped out last night for a premiere of her film Café de Flore, and was spotted shopping for home goods over the weekend. This morning's event was Diane's latest with Chanel. Diane attended the opening of their Numéro Privés at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas over the weekend and partied with the likes of Jessica Alba and Rachel Zoe.
Vanessa Paradis hit the red carpet solo last night for a screening of her movie Café de Flore. She first started premiering the film last year at various film festivals, and it is finally due to arrive in French theaters tomorrow. Vanessa posed for photos with Marin Gerrier and Jean-Marc Vallée, and later reported to the afterparty at Chez Castel nightclub. She did limited interviews, but in one conversation, spoke about her rumored split from Johnny Depp. Vanessa Paradis told France's Radio 1, "You know, when I eat three peas, I'm pregnant. When I visit a city, I'm buying a house. In the Winter I separate, in the Summer I marry. It's been 15 years since I've been getting married every year. In addition, I have to answer all these rumors!"
Vanessa and Johnny are said to have split after nearly 14 years together. However, the pair seem to be staying close for the benefit of their children, 12-year-old Lily-Rose and 9-year-old Jack. The family has traditionally split their time between LA and France. Vanessa and the children rang in 2012 from the West Coast, but she's been in France for the last week to promote her new big screen project and also enjoy some of the fun of Couture Fashion Week.
Vogue UK Calls Out Vanessa Paradis's Reported Engagement Ring — Think She and Johnny Depp Will Actually Tie the Knot?
Johnny Depp's longtime partner, Vanessa Paradis, graces the cover of Vogue UK's July issue, and she was snapped for the inside spread wearing what the magazine calls her engagement ring. Vanessa's been sporting the diamond sparkler on her left hand for over a year now, including at a recent appearance in Cannes, though she and Johnny have made no mention of its meaning. The couple, who have been together for 12 years and have two children, have said before that they "don't need somebody to say, okay you're married" but Johnny did add that "if Vanessa wanted to get hitched" he would be open to it. So tell us — do you think her rock means that she and Johnny will actually tie the knot?
These five beautiful European ladies have smiled proudly to the world embracing their gap-teeth. They're all beautiful, successful and happy to flaunt their imperfect pearly whites. Take a peek at photos of Georgia May Jagger, Vanessa Paradis, Lara Stone, Amy Winehouse and Brigitte Bardot and tell me why you think the world is so obsessed with perfect teeth (I think they all look great just the way they are)!
The haute couture continued in Paris today with the Chanel show. Fresh from her sexy holiday in Mexico, Diane Kruger didn't have her Chanel buddy Joshua Jackson with her on this occasion, as he's Stateside. Vanessa Paradis supported Karl Lagerfeld once again, having attended his Paris show in October too. Alexa Chung wore a monochrome ensemble, after she brought some flower power to her outfit yesterday at the Etam show with Kate Moss. Kirsten Dunst also attended the show, as did Pedro Almodovar and Jerry Hall.
Keira Knightley posed for photographers with her cute shorter haircut at the Chanel Paris Fashion Week show today. In September she showed off her new 'do on a bike as she shot an advert for Chanel. Buzz has reviewed her film Never Let Me Go which will open the London Film Festival this month. Rachel Bilson continued her fashion week fun in Paris, as did Lily Allen who got over feeling sick to attend. While Johnny Depp works on Pirates of the Caribbean 4, Vanessa Paradis attended the show in a cute bow top.
