A celebrated singer, successful actress, friend of Chanel, muse and French icon, Vanessa Paradis and her fans have always shared something of a Divine Idylle. Vogue.fr looks back at the legendary career and life of the Oiseau de Paradis.

NativeShareJoe le Taxi It was under the pseudonym Emilie Jolie that the then eight year-old Vanessa Paradis won the hearts of the public in 1981. With her blonde fringe, quirky smile and intoxicating shyness, the young prodigy launched her singing career to great success with Joe le Taxi in 1988, at just 14. Rising into the top 50 singers in France overnight, the young girl soon became an idol and icon to the young French generation, despite the intense scrutiny her fame brought her.

210NativeShareChanel girl “Jean-Paul Goude’s film for Coco was a key moment in my career… I remember hesitating, so I’m happy that my agent and parents decided for me!” And it was this ad for Chanel, in which the star swung on a trapeze in a gilded cage, that the ‘oiseau de paradis’ rose to fame in October 1991. The new icon of the young generation went on to star in numerous campaigns for the fashion house, from handbags (Cambon, New Mademoiselle, Coco Cocoon) to lipsticks (Rouge Coco, Coco Shine). Of Karl Lagerfeld she has said that she has “a professional relationship… though he often makes kind gestures”, and it seems the same relationship has now extended to her daughter Lily-Rose Depp, the more recent Chanel muse.

And so, Vanessa Paradis was reborn. The actress continued to make films regularly in the following decade, starring alongside the likes of Gérard Depardieu, Jeanne Moreau and, later, Romain Duris, and her career was recognized in 2016, when she was chosen to sit on the Cannes Film Festival Jury.

In the Paradis special, the star opened up about her family, memories, inspiration and her icons, looking back the early days of her career on the cusp of the 1990s, as well as her previous Vogue Paris appearance in 2008, in a photoshoot with Mert & Marcus.
