Apple Martin, daughter of Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin, has officially made her Paris Fashion Week debut.
On Tuesday, the 18-year-old attended the Chanel haute couture Spring/Summer 2023 show in Paris. For the occasion, which saw Apple sit front row, she wore the designer’s black and white tweed skirt and jacket ensemble.
She paired the outfit with a black quilted Chanel shoulder bag and loafers.
Apple’s appearance at the show went viral on social media after fashion journalist Derek Blasberg drew attention to its presence on Twitter and Instagram.
In the posts, which have since gone viral, Blasberg shared several photos of Apple, while noting that the late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld once said she would be a “Chanel girl.”
“Karl Lagerfeld met Apple Martin when she was four and said that one day she would be a Chanel girl,” he wrote. “It happened today!”
In addition to photos of Apple sitting in a coveted front-row seat at the show, alongside Lucy Boynton and Sadie Sink, Blasberg also included behind-the-scenes photos of the 18-year-old at the fashion show. In one photo, presumably taken after the show, Apple could be seen smiling as she held up an apple pastry, while another showed her posing for a selfie with the fashion reporter.
The tweet, which has been viewed more than 77,000 times, has prompted comparisons between Apple and its famous parents.
“God she really is a beautiful mix of her dad and mom,” one person tweeted, while another said, “Omg she’s a perfect mix of her parents.”
Blasberg’s Instagram post dedicated to Apple also elicited a response from Paltrow herself, who responded with an apple emoji.
Apple’s fashion week debut comes after the Goop founder posted a tribute to her daughter on her 18th birthday last year, in which Paltrow revealed she ‘couldn’t be more proud’ of the woman she was becoming.
“18. I’m a little at a loss for words this morning. Couldn’t be prouder of the woman you are. You are everything I could have ever dreamed of and so much more,” Paltrow wrote in the caption. the photo of her and her daughter.” Proud doesn’t cover it up, my heart swells with feelings I can’t put into words. You are profoundly extraordinary in every way.
“Happy birthday my darling daughter. I hope you know how special you are and how much light you have brought to all who are lucky enough to know you. Especially me. I say it all the time and I don’t m ‘ll never stop… in the words of Aunt Drew, I was born the day you were born. I love you.”
In addition to Apple, Paltrow also shares 16-year-old son Moses with ex-husband Martin.
