With success, the first problems arrived but also the important social commitment. Shortly after her debut in the world of fashion and cinema, the actress and model declared that she suffered from anorexia due to frequent media pressures. After recovering from it, she took care of raising awareness about eating disorders among young people. Her social commitment continued in 2015 when she joined the Self-Evident Truths project to support the LGBTQ + community when she talked about being sexually fluid.

In 2014, after a cameo in the film Tusk, she debuted in the world of cinema with Kevin Smith’s film Yoga Hosers, in which her mother Vanessa also participated. In this regard she stated:

“I wanted to become a singer, but then I acted and I found it so suitable for me that now all I want is to act.”

As a prodigy girl, she continued her career as an actress, playing the role of the dancer Isadora Duncan in the film The Dancer in 2016. Thanks to the movie she obtained a nomination for the César Awards for Best Newcomer Actress and the Lumière Award for Female Revelation. In the same year, she starred alongside Natalie Portman in Planetarium, presented at the Venice Film Festival in September 2016.

In 2018 she was the protagonist of A Faithful Man with Louis Garrel and Laetitia Casta. Lily-Rose Depp also appeared in the film The King, where she played the role of Catherine of Valois. By her side, there were: Robert Pattinson, Ben Mendelsohn, and Timothée Chalamet. She also had a romantic relationship with Chalamet.

After her debut, the collaboration with the Parisian Maison with the double C continued, with one success after the other. Depp became the muse of  Lagerfeld and she didn’t miss a catwalk. In December 2016 they were photographed together by Hedi Slimane for the cover of Vogue Paris.
