Lily-Rose Depp is the face of Chanel No. 5 fragrance and stars in their new campaign for Fall/Winter 2017, and most recently, she bared all in a new spread for Carine Roitfeld’s CR Fashion Book magazine.

Actress Natalie Portman interviewed her for the magazine, and Lily-Rose opened up about why she wanted to show more skin in the photo shoot for the publication.

“Carine actually styled the first shoot that I did for Chanel when I was 15,” she said, according to People magazine. “This time, I got to show a little more skin and be a little more sexy. I had just turned 18, so I was ready to up the ante.”

Famed photographer Steven Klein shot the photo spread, and Lily-Rose was happy to look to her mother for inspiration.

“He had shot these amazing photographs of my mom when she was my age,” Depp said, according to People. “We shot in front of a mirror with the pictures taped to it. We have a similar grungy look.”

Lily-Rose, who has appeared in a number of films and television shows, was adamant that while she’s grateful for such successful parents, she doesn’t want the world to think that she has everything because of them.

“A lot of people think I’m only acting because of my dad -- that I have not had to work as hard to be seen or recognized in the industry, so I think that it makes me want to work twice as hard to prove to everyone that I’m not just doing this because it’s easy to do,” she said. “I’m not just doing it because it runs in the family.”

Billy Joel dons Star of David jacket during NYC show encore

Billy Joel wore a bright yellow Star of David on his black suit during an encore at Madison Square Garden.

Monday's performance by "The Piano Man" came more than a week after a rally by neo-Nazis and other groups in Charlottesville, Virginia, ended in deadly violence against counterprotesters.

When asked about Joel's attire, his spokeswoman on Tuesday quoted Edmund Burke: "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

Joel joined with Patty Smyth on stage in taking a swipe at President Donald Trump's administration. Photos of fired officials appeared on screen as Smyth sang her hit, "Goodbye to You."

Joel's ex-wife Christie Brinkley and their daughter, Alexa Ray Joel, attended the concert. Many of his relatives died in the Holocaust.

This story has been corrected to show that the singer with Billy Joel was Patty Smyth, not Patti Smith.
