Vanessa Paradis braves first solo public appearance at premiere… as she lives 'separate life from Johnny Depp'

She was expected to attend her latest premiere alone, yet Johnny Depp's absence is further proof he and Vanessa Paradis are living separate lives.

The 39-year-old French actress held her head high as she attended the Parisian premiere of Cafe de Flore.

It was her first public appearance since news broke that she and Depp, her partner of 14 years, had split.

The petite star looked chic in menswear as she hustled down the red carpet.

She appears to have lost weight, as normally tight-fitting red leather trousers hung loosely on her diminutive frame.

She added a black tuxedo jacket, four-inch heeled booties and a tie to finish the tough, chic look.

According to People magazine, she
breezed down the carpet without speaking to reporters, pausing only to
pose with co-star Marin Gerrier and director Jean-Marc Vallee.

However, French TV reporter Christophe Beaugrand says Paradis didn't act any differently than normal.

'She had the air she always does – polite, smiling, saying hello to everyone inside,' he said.

Her date to the event was her sister Alysson while Depp, 48, was 5,000 miles away in Los Angeles.

Paradis, who is the mother of the
Pirates of the Caribbean star's two children, Lily-Rose, 12, and Jack,
9, briefly signed autographs outside the UGC Danton theatre before
heading to the afterparty at nearby nightclub Chez Castel.

She has hinted at the strains of her relationship crisis while promoting her latest film, in which she plays a single mother.

The
actress, who did not refer to Depp by name, claimed she didn’t believe
in marriage or soul mates because ‘if you lose your soul mate everything
is done for’.

She continued:
‘Cafe De Flore speaks of love, its joys, its pains and its dramas – to
love and to lose. This story upset me, I was upside-down, in the depths
of myself.’

She added: ‘The
idea of a soulmate is beautiful and very romantic to talk about it in a
movie or a song, but in reality, I find it scary.’

He has been going it alone lately as well, attending the Golden Globe Awards earlier this month by himself.
