Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin were once the most darling couple of Hollywood. They had two children together and one of them, Apple Martin, has become the latest eye-catching nepo baby to emerge into the fashion world.
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin first met in 2002 at a Coldplay concert and secretly married in 2003. Throughout their marriage, they were rarely seen together on the red carpet and kept their relationship fairly private. But things seemed to be going well until 2014, when they announced that they would be separating. That's when the famous "conscious uncoupling" message was released to the world, resulting in various comedy skits and memes. But long before they decided to divorce, Gwyneth and Chris welcomed two children into the world: Apple and Moses. Fast forward to 2023, and the beautiful nepo baby Apple, who isn't a baby anymore, makes her debut at Paris Fashion Week.
Who Is Apple Martin?
Apple Blythe Alison Martin was born on May 14, 2004. Gwyneth said in an Instagram Q&A that Chris was actually the one who thought of her name. "I thought it was original and cool. I can't imagine her being called anything else," she said. People were so enamored with her name that, at one point, Apple was the number one top-searched celebrity child on Google. This was fueled even more by her parents' choice to keep her private and out of the public eye. Reportedly, Chris penned the song "Speed of Sound" to express his joy of becoming a father.
Once Apple got older, Gwyneth started sharing photos of the two of them together on birthdays or various other occasions.
On Apple's 17th birthday, Gwyneth shared a heartfelt message about the young woman that she has become. "Can it be? 17 today?? My sweetest girl... YOU ARE MY LIFE! You make me belly laugh every day. You are brilliant and hardworking. You are fully YOU which I respect and admire so much. I wish I had had even a spoonful of the self-acceptance you have when I was your age. You are so inspiring and just so cool. I remember the morning you came into the world so perfectly, I just can’t believe it was 17 years ago. Happy birthday, my angel," she wrote in the caption.
Apple's Instagram page, which is private, wasn't tagged in the photo, but it garnered half a million likes and hundreds of comments praising her natural beauty. Many people often comment on Apple's similarity to her father Chris.
Apple has been openly supportive of her mother's brand Goop. She has taken pictures before with the products and she even made a spoof video of Gwyneth's skincare routine for Goop's TikTok. Apple joked that her mom only eats dates and almond butter in the morning, then she puts on "millions of Goop Glow products for her glowing skin." She joked, "Then she gets to work, making some more vagina eggs... And candles, also vagina candles, and vagina perfumes. Just everything vagina."
Apple Martin Made Her Debut at Paris Fashion Week
The 18-year-old nepo baby showed up to Paris Fashion Week for the first time and even had a front-row seat to the Chanel Haute Couture Spring Summer 2023 show. According to Derek Blasberg, when she was only 4 years old, she met Karl Lagerfeld who told her that she would be a Chanel girl one day. Turns out he was right.
Apple wore a black-and-white checkered dress with a matching blazer. Her hair was effortlessly parted down the middle and her makeup was natural, coupled with black eyeliner.
She sat next to Lucy Boynton and Sadie Sink, with Baz Lurhmann, director of Elvis, nearby. Many fans online are waiting to see her make her debut on the runway, pointing out the fact that she has the perfect high-fashion model face, much like Kate Moss when she came on the scene. If anyone pulls off nepo baby in style, it's Apple Martin.
