She is the 18-year-old daughter of superstars Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis, and Lily-Rose Depp proves she has inherited the best features from her parents.

The rising French-American actress showed off her style credentials in a black minidress for the second annual WWD Honors at the Pierre Hotel in New York City on Tuesday (24 October), cutting a particularly striking resemblance to her elegant mother.

Ms Depp stole the show on the red carpet in the bejewelled boucle-style dress by Chanel featuring thin shoulder straps, styling it with black strappy sandals and statement gold earrings as she scraped her hair up into a high ponytail.

The aspiring actress was accompanied by the designer of her ensemble, Karl Lagerfeld, as they posed for photographs in front of a beautiful wall adorned with red roses.

Depp posted a picture of her getting her make-up done to her 3.3m Instagram followers ahead of the event, garnering hundreds of adoring comments.

One person told her: "You're so beautiful ❤️❤️ ugh my queen my icon my legend❤️" while another said: "OMG you look just like you're mom in this picture I thought it was her ❤".

A third added: "Gorgeous!!! So talented!"
