Apple Martin, the 18-year-old daughter of actress Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, is carving out a name for herself in the fashion industry.
She made headlines at birth due to her unique name and having famous parents. Paltrow and Martin had a conscious uncoupling in 2014 but remain amicable co-parents to their two children.
|Real Name||Apple Martini|
|Parents||Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin|
Apple Martin Childhood
While Apple’s childhood was kept private, she recently made her fashion debut at Paris Fashion Week in January 2023, sitting in the front row at Chanel’s haute couture runway show in a stylish black-and-white dress-and-blazer ensemble.
Fashion journalist Derek Blasberg previously predicted Apple would be a “Chanel girl” at the age of 4, and it seems his forecast has come true. With her inherited style and growing presence in the industry, Apple Martin is quickly becoming fashion’s rising “it” girl.
Apple Martin Parents
Her father had an unusual concept for her name. The name of the emerging fashion icon caused quite a commotion at the time of her birth. However, when she was a few months old, her mother, Paltrow, disclosed the inspiration behind the name during an interview with Oprah.
Paltrow says the baby’s father suggested the moniker during her pregnancy. He thought Apple would be a lovely name for a girl, as it evokes images of sweetness, wholesomeness, and biblical references.
Paltrow was captivated by the idea and thought it was a beautiful choice. She was surprised by the global outcry that followed the announcement, as there are many other pretty nouns like Rose, Lily, Ivy, or June.
Apple Martin’s Resemblance With Her Mother
As Apple grew older, her resemblance to her mother became more apparent, particularly during a trip to New York City in 2022. Paltrow shared photos from the mother-daughter getaway, showcasing their strikingly similar appearances.
One photo featured Apple relaxing in a chair with a stunning view of the city in the background, captioned by the Goop founder with the words, “48 hours in NYC with this beauty.”
During the trip, the pair also snapped a funny selfie outside an Italian restaurant and a cozy shot of themselves in their pajamas at the Carlyle.
In January of 2023, they embarked on another trip to NYC, with Paltrow taking to Instagram to share photos of her daily outfits. In one of the snaps, Apple stands beside her mother, looking comfortable and fresh-faced in a white cable knit sweater.
In 2023, Apple Debuted At Paris Fashion Week
Apple splashed the fashion world at Paris Fashion Week in January 2023 by attending Chanel’s haute fashion show. Alongside fellow celebrities Lucy Boynton and Sadie Sink, who was also dressed in Chanel, Apple sat front row in a head-to-toe Chanel ensemble.
Her hairstyle was straight and parted in the middle, reminiscent of her mother’s signature look, and she paired it with smoky, winged liner and a rosy lipstick shade to complete her classically chic look.
According to Derek Blasberg, Apple’s big night out with Chanel was the culmination of a prediction made by late Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld when Apple was only 4 years old.
In an Instagram caption, Blasberg shared some behind-the-scenes shots of Apple and recounted Lagerfeld’s early prediction that she would become a Chanel girl one day. As it turned out, Lagerfeld’s prophecy came true today.
Apple’s College Life
Apple’s exact school hasn’t been made public, although Paltrow spoke about her daughter departing for college in Oct 2022. “That was awful. It wasn’t very pleasant. “I was crying uncontrollably and felt sick to my stomach.”
Said the mother of two: “It was astonishing that she only returned home last weekend for her Oct break. Though not as frequently as I’d want, I see her. I’m really thrilled for her, but I wish I could see her everyday. She’s doing wonderful.”
Paltrow shared a flashback selfie with Apple on her Instagram Stories in January 2023 while still grieving her kid and wrote, “Still trying to adjust.” She assisted with product development for her mother’s lifestyle company.
Apple’s Potential Future In The Fashion Industry
Apple’s potential future in the fashion industry is promising, but working for her mother’s lifestyle brand, Goop is also possible. In 2021, Apple appeared in the campaign for the new GOOPGLOW Glow Lotion and played a role in its development.
In an April 2021 episode of TODAY, Paltrow initially hesitated to include her daughter in the campaign but ultimately decided to let her participate.
As for whether Apple will eventually join the family business, Paltrow stated that it’s too soon to tell. Her children are more interested in seeing their futures unfold than deciding on a career path.
