As she accepted the “Newcomer Award: Mass” for Flower Beauty at Wednesday’s WWD Beauty Inc. Awards breakfast, she revealed the baby’s gender and the nickname she’s given her baby bump, Chanel No. 5. “I am so proud to accept this in celebration of women, including my daughter and my future daughter,” she told the crowd during her acceptance speech. I have grown up in a make-up chair. I loved watching women in this aspirational environment. It was and always will be important to me to send messages of empowerment.”
If the moniker has you scratching your head, don’t worry. As it turns out, her father-in-law, former Chanel chairman Arie Kopelman, came up with the nickname, as the little bundle of joy would be his fifth grandchild.
Though we don’t know when little Chanel will arrive, it’s good to know beauty runs in the family!
