Vanessa is looking lovely

Vanessa Paradis looks gorgeous in a sultry new magazine spread.

The French actress, 41 – who split from ex Johnny Depp in 2012 – shows off her petite frame and new pixie crop in the summer issue of Porter.

In one shot, Vanessa looks relaxed as she stretches out her arms in a floor-length white dress.

She throws a moody pose in a furry gilet and lacy skirt and covers her nether region with a cut-out blue gown while saucily sitting on a chair with her legs apart.

Vanessa was with Johnny, 50, for 14 years before their break-up and the pair have daughter Lily-Rose and son Jack together.

Earlier this week, Johnny confirmed his engagement to his The Rum Diary co-star Amber Heard.

Vanessa chopped her curly locks into an edgy short style earlier this year and has now revealed that the new look has made her feel much fresher.

‘You do feel different… You do, you do, you do,’ says Vanessa.

‘It changes… it does give you an energy, more younger than older.’
