Vanessa Paradis' Fashion Inspiration

Vanessa Paradis says French women inspire each other to be stylish.

The actress - who was raised in the suburbs of Paris - doesn't think France's capital is any more fashionable than other cities, it's just that their way of life makes their clothes more accessible.

She said: "I don't think French women have more style. Maybe it's because Paris is a city where you walk in. In America, everyone drives, and you cannot see what anyone is wearing when they are locked in a car. Here, everyone checks out each other. We communicate with clothes here more and, as a result, inspire one another."

The 37-year-old beauty - who is one of the faces of French fashion house Chanel - also revealed how she has given up smoking to help stop the ageing process.

She told Britain's Harper's Bazaar magazine: "I quit smoking roll-ups, which helps enormously; that's it. I do drink lots of water, though I like wine - Bordeaux."

Vanessa - who has two children, Lily-Rose, 11, and eight-year-old Jack with partner Johnny Depp - currently splits her time between France and the US.
