Will we see Lily-Rose Depp’s frothy, pink Chanel gown at this year’s Oscars?


The Paris Fashion Week before the Oscars is usually a huge event, but this year’s fall collections have been… muted. I think it’s several things: one, fewer celebrities have come to Paris following Kim Kardashian’s armed robbery; two, France has seen some horrific terrorist attacks in the past few years, and it seems like everyone wants to be low-key. Still, there were some notable moments during Paris Fashion Week, at least so far. Lily-Rose Depp got to walk to the Chanel runway wearing the big dress, the big look from the collection. While Karl Lagerfeld loves a sugary, ruffled ball gown, I’m not crazy about this look in practice. Yes, it’s strangely wonderful on a runway. But imagine this pink puffball on the Oscars red carpet. Please. Everyone would be horrified.


Lily-Rose’s mama Vanessa Paradis was at the Chanel show. She’s also one of Karl’s muses and one of the faces of the brand. Generational Chanel modeling is a thing, apparently.


Here’s Bella Hadid on the Chanel runway and afterwards, her post-Chanel street style. I think she looks better in the street-style look.



Here’s Kendall Jenner on the Chanel runway. I could see this dress at the Vanity Fair Oscar party. Perhaps on… Sienna Miller. Or Diane Kruger.


Nicole Kidman and Isabelle Huppert – both nominated for an Oscar yesterday – attended the Armani show and got to sit with Roberta Armani. I think that means that both women will be wearing Armani to the Oscars? I hope so. Kidman has had a terrible red carpet run for the past few years and I would love to see her in something clean and streamlined. And it would be great to see Isabelle in a great Armani gown too.

    Maybe if they removed the puffy sleeves? I possibly then could see it working.

  2. Tris says:

    Somebody please cut the sleeves off that dress!

  3. Pandy says:

    The pink dress is a shit show omg. And all of these instagram models managed to get snapped looking vacant for lack of a better word. Can’t believe Kendull is still getting gigs. And lily Rose is just a plain little waif. Hardly aspirational.

    • Patricia says:

      Yes, Lily in that dress is the biggest case of “the dress wearing the woman instead of the woman wearing the dress” that I’ve ever seen! These insta models are dead-eyed hangers for clothes.

    • Don't kill the dogs says:

      LR doesn’t look her absolute best here, but she’s generally strikingly gorgeous.

    • LoveIsBlynd says:

      I’m actually uneasy with a tween wearing couture. Lily Rose -looks- tween and yes it’s disturbing. I get “tots in tiara vibes”, and the repulsion is far reaching because I’ve never set eyes up on that show and only know it exists.

  4. Brea says:

    *notes down Bella’s street style outfit*
    Both Isabelle and Nicole looked really nice here. I need that light blue suit in my life.

  5. mkyarwood says:

    Jeez, Karl, EDIT. Coco Chanel would be horrified. Should have left off the buttons and peter pan collar, skipped the belt, and done some of the ruffles in a few different pinks to give a tie dye effect or something, if he wanted to update it. What a mess. ‘Before you leave the house, remove one accessory.’ – CHANEL

  6. dr mantis toboggan says:

    I don’t know, I think just after that picture was taken Karl Lagerfeld unhinged his jaw and swallowed her whole

  7. Slowsnow says:

    What’s with the belts? They’re so tacky.

  8. Chetta B. says:

    I love Nicole Kidman’s dress. She looks fabulous. Lily-Rose’s dress is hideous, I’m sorry, just waaaay too much. Everyone else looks lovely!

  9. QQ says:

    A) no One would want to wear a kendull Jenner dress Oscar Weekend
    B) Bella Looks Sad and Precry, but I get this is her Resting face

    C)Ya’ll buried the lead not putting up those RIDONKCULOUS pics of Nicole Kidman Paying Homage by kissing Isabelle’s hand, It looked super corny and Isabelle just stood there taking the hand kiss like a Pope.. Too effing funny

    • I Choose Me says:

      I saw it. Still cringing at her extra-ness. But I gotta say Isabelle’s expression patient and pleasant with just a hint of a condescending smile delights my soul.

    Chanel has lost the plot

  11. paolanqar says:

    wtf is wrong with Nicole’s styling lately?
    She looks awful!

  12. Mia4S says:

    Looking forward to their next fragrance…

    Nepotism, by Chanel

  13. Rocio says:

    Lily Rose… That Girl needs to go to school. I see a trainwreck.

  14. A Finn says:

    Lily-Rose is a lovely girl, but I’m bit worried… she’s tiny but now thinner than ever. She has lost weight since becoming a Chanel “star” and the girl is only seventeen! She looks so frail next to Lagerfield and he isn’t exactly Mr. Big himself…dress is ok for girl as young as Lily, but not haute couture – sorry Chanel 💕

  15. KiddVicious says:

    I love the dress Kendall is wearing. I didn’t realize it was Kendall when I saw the photos yesterday. I need to upgrade my life so I can wear that dress somewhere.

    I like both of Bella’s outfits, especially the suede boots.

  16. Eleonor says:

    The dress Nicole is wearing is the best she has worn in ages.

  17. Sage says:

    I love Kendall’s dress. I don’t care for the others.

  18. Taxi says:

    I like Nicole’s dress but kissing Huppert’s hand? WTF?
    The pink froth belongs on someone under 10 or over 80.

  19. Littlestar says:

    I actually think the dress is cute on someone Lily Rose’s age.

  20. squeezeolime says:

    Heinous dress, bad model. Hadid girls I’ve learned to be ok with but this 12 year old child with the too-cool-for-school attitude selling Chanel to 50 year olds? Just no. Also Kendull doesn’t have the personality to pull of that dress.

  21. Bread and Circuses says:

    Well, all three of the Hollywood Nepotism models look very beautiful here.
