Spider-Man’s girlfriend is out, Johnny Depp’s is in.


Vanessa Paradis has replaced Kirsten Dunst as the face for Miu Miu fronting the brand’s Fall 2008 campaign. The campaign has not yet made its debut in the August fashion titles in Hong Kong, but you can see it at MiuMiu.com.  Vanessa Paradis represents who the Miu Miu woman is: a modern women who is independent, defies convention definition, who is the embodiment of fragility and feminine strength.

Huh? You don’t know who Vanessa Paradis is?

Vanessa is a 34 year old French pop star with a single that made the UK top 10 hits and have been nominated many times in France as Female Performer of the Year.

She is an acclaimed French actress, who has played roles that have won praises and admiration from the French movie industry such as Noce Blanche and La Fille Sur le Pont. She has more recently appeared on ad campaigns for Chanel Coco perfume and the Mademoiselle handbag.

Of course she is probably best known these days as the long time girlfriend (10 years), now wife, of Captain Jack Sparrow himself, Johnny Depp and mother of 2 children with Mr. Depp, Lily-Rose and Jack. If you were around in the 1992 you’ll remember this song, “Be My Baby,” that was everywhere when 18-year old Paradis started to break into the US pop charts:
