Yesterday’s Chanel spring 2023 couture show in Paris was, unsurprisingly, a star-studded affair. A-listers such as Tilda Swinton, Marion Cotillard, and Vanessa Paradis were all in attendance. However, there was a new face among the celebrity-filled crowd. Apple Martin, the 18-year-old daughter of Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow, took in her first fashion show from the front row. “The Chanel Couture show was my first fashion experience, and I am so incredibly grateful to Chanel and their incredible team for having me,” says Martin. “It was so exciting to see the art in the designs, and the theme of the line emerge throughout the show.”
Martin’s favorite looks were those that had an upbeat, youthful feel. “My favorite looks from the show were the dropped-waist short tweed looks, and the white floor-length dresses,” says Martin. “I particularly loved look 40, 23, and 18.” Martin is a big fashion fan and follower, so it was only a matter of time before she got to witness a real-life show from one of her favorite labels. “I really enjoy keeping up with fashion,” Martin says. Ahead of the show, she paid a special visit to le19M, Chanel’s new architectural space dedicated to showcasing its Métiers d’Art fashions and artisans.
