After years of keeping a low profile in the French countryside with hubby actor Johnny Depp, longtime inamorata Vanessa Paradis is ready for her close up. Described as “yet another interpretation of the Miu Miu woman,” Prada unveiled its Fall 2008 campaign starring the 35-year-old singer Vanessa Paradis. Miuccia Prada chose Paradis because she has “certain powerful independence” and captures “the overlapping qualities of fragility and feminine strength.”

That’s a style and look one million miles away from the previous, darker campaign modeled by actress Kirsten Dunst. The photo shoot was helmed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and shot in Los Angeles. “The impact and drama of the images continue the enduring dialogue of Mrs. Prada, a conversation concerning the subject of womanhood in our times,” the company said in a statement. “At once a deconstruction and a pure visual composition, the campaign addresses the exploration of beauty in conjunction with intellect, imagination and divergence.”
