divine idylle # 7 : vanessa paradisPosted: January 10, 2011
The ultimate divine idylle, Vanessa. Not only did her song inspire the feature but she also exudes an inner strength and fierce independence which encapsulates what the women I choose are all about.
From her precocious beginnings as a a doe eyed 14 year old singing ‘Joe Le Taxi’, to collaborations with irrepressible lady’s man Lenny Kravitz at the height of his career, to modeling intermittently for Chanel, her career has been as diverse as it’s been enduring. She’s blossomed and improved with age having seemingly not succumbed to the surgeon’s knife or the orthodontist’s handiwork, her gappy smile (much like that of Madonna’s) becoming a trend setter and bankable distinguishing feature.
