Apple Martin appeared to fulfill a famous designer’s prophecy this week during its Paris Fashion Week debut.
Martin, the daughter of Oscar-winning actor Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay singer Chris Martin, joined a host of stars at the Chanel Haute Couture Spring/Summer 2023 show on Monday.
The 18-year-old looked strikingly like her famous mother in a black and white Chanel jacket and mini dress. She was seated in the front row, alongside actors Lucy Boynton and Sadie Sink.

Also in attendance: Director Baz Luhrmann, whose latest film, “Elvis,” itself garnered eight Oscar nominations the following day.
Reporter Derek Blasberg shared some behind-the-scenes photos showing Martin happily posing with Boynton and Sink and, later, enjoying an intimate dinner on Instagram. In the accompanying caption, Blasberg noted that legendary Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld, who died in 2019, recognized Martin’s sense of style early on.

“Karl Lagerfeld met Apple Martin when she was 4 and said that one day she would be a Chanel girl,” he wrote. “It happened today!”
Blasberg’s photos drew a plethora of compliments from some of his famous friends, as well as a playful correction courtesy of Paltrow.
“Actually, she was ONE,” the ‘Shakespeare in Love’ and ‘Royal Tenenbaums’ actor joked in a comment.

Predictably, Martin’s presence at the show prompted a number of media outlets to once again fuel the debate over so-called nepotistic babies. The buzzword, often shortened to “nepo babies”, has been used to pejoratively describe children born to wealthy, powerful or famous families, especially those who find success in a field in which someone close to them has also worked.
Compared to many of her contemporaries, however, Martin has mostly avoided the spotlight: Paltrow recently confirmed that her daughter started college last fall, but she didn’t specify which school she attended or her field of study. studies.
With the 2023 Met Gala slated as a tribute to Lagerfeld’s work, only time will tell if Martin will once again fulfill his apparent destiny by attending the high-profile event in May.
