Exclusive: Vanessa Paradis Models Chanel Rouge Coco Shine
We can't think of a single woman (or should that be femme) who embodies Chanel quite so perfectly as Vanessa Paradis. The long-time muse first displayed her pitch-perfect grace at just 18 years of age, when she appeared in the campaign for the Coco fragrance. She has since become the muse for Karl Lagerfeld's Cambon handbags and became the brand's first ever beauty muse last year, fronting the huge Rouge Coco lipstick launch. This year she's back, looking as elegant as ever in the brand's follow-up: Chanel Rouge Coco Shine lipsticks. A hybrid between gloss and lipstick, with a unique and nourishing balm-like texture, the hero shade, Boy, a soft dusky rose, is named after the love of Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's life, Arthur "Boy" Capel. Sigh. It's the ultimate must-have for any romantic. Any girl. For as Vanessa Paradis so perfectly puts it, "Most of us girls, since we learned to walk, like lipstick. Lipstick is universal. Everyone likes it, at any age."
Chanel Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick launches on March 15. Check out some exclusive shots of Vanessa Paradis wearing Boy now . . .
