Taylor Swift and her VIP gal pals may have set the standards for the ultimate #squad, but the fashion industry was introduced to a new set of #BFFgoals when Stella Maxwell and Lily Rose Depp posed for LOVE magazine’s Instagram Saturday.
Following in the footsteps of mother and Karl Lagerfeld muse Vanessa Paradis, 16-year-old Depp just recently made her way into the fashion industry, while 24-year-old Maxwell’s modeling career took off once she became a Victoria’s Secret model in 2015. While both Depp and Maxwell may have a significant amount of exposure to the fashion realm, these models are still so young and have a lot to learn about the industry.
Oftentimes young girls pursuing a modeling career are exposed to the adult world early on, so it was refreshing to see Depp and Maxwell’s playful poses in addition to the stereotypical model’s camera-stricken pout. At first glance, you’d think Vanessa Paradis’s protégé and the British model were sisters with their similar physique and wavy blonde hair. If, indeed, a picture is worth a thousand words, these girls would like you to know they are incredibly close, playing with red wax lips and cuddling close together in sweetly intimate poses.
Remember that time now-18-year-old Kylie Jenner posed for LOVE back in February, dressed in red body suit and trench coat sporting a tousled blonde wig? It was the first time the youngest Jenner was recognized as all-grown-up. The mag is known for it's raunchy editorials and exposure of models and celebrities in new light. So while I love the glossy for it's raw edge, I'm applauding Maxwell and Depp for keeping it light this time around because really, what is work without a little play?
