Vanessa Paradis, Une Nuit A Versailles Album Cover, shot by Karl Lagerfeld

Vanessa Paradis is back on the mike--proving that she still got her seductive groove on--with her new album: Une Nuit a Versailles.  The compilation is from a series of acoustic shows she did in France this year, including a full concert she did at the Royal Opera of the Palace de Versailles; hence, the title.  She played with eight acoustic musicians, some of which are string quartet.  The result: enchanting indeed.  The anthology of live performances has also been turned into a film and the promotional shots for the album/film were taken by the incomparable, Karl Lagerfeld (as pictured above).  The two are friends.

Have a watch at her live rendition of Be My Baby (below).  Perhaps the selection of this song was a pronouncement by the singer/actress to her long time partner Johnny Depp--extrapolated from the rumors of jealousy abound, while Depp was filming, The Tourist with Angelina Jolie.  The album will be released on Dec 14, 2010.  For behind the scenes footage, go HERE.
