With the news that Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis are going their separate ways, we’re devestated at the prospect of never seeing this gorgeously chiselled couple together EVER again. There’ll be no more perfectly-coordinated but utterly-cool outfits, no more nuzzling on the red carpet, no more gushing about their happy home life and no more matchy-matchy cheekbone action *silently weeps*
Yesterday, just hours after announcing that they have separated, reports emerged that Depp has been struggling to save his relationship with long-term love Vanessa for quite some time. As previously reported in Grazia, the pair have been living separate lives in recent months and speculation has been mounting that an announcement of their split was imminent. Cut to Tuesday afternoon and, in a joint statement via their publicist, the two revealed that they had ‘amicably separated’, adding: ‘Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children.’ So sad! On the plus side, this means Johnny Depp is a single man, ladies. Hmm, should Jamie Hince be worried?

It’s fair to say that Johnny and Vanessa have become one of our all-time favourite celeb couplings. With his shaggy hair, rocker shirts, bead necklaces and ratty panama hats alongside her au-natural waves, gappy teeth and ethereal ’20s-esque dresses, they were nothing short of boho perfection. And thanks to her Parisian ways, Vanessa nurtured her beau’s carefree attitude, with the world becoming fascinated by their secluded life in the French countryside where they brought up their two children, Jack and Lily-Rose.
The last time the duo was pictured together was way back in 2010 (a slight hint that all was not rosy maybe?), but during their 14 years together, they offered up an ample array of heart-warming moments for us to coo over now that they are no more. So from appearing at the Venice Film Festival in 2001 wearing co-ordinating black suits to hitting the red carpet in his ‘n’ hers headgear, the gallery above is a homage to our beloved Jo-essa…
