An outfit is worth a thousand words.
Hailey Bieber has always had a knack at letting her sartorial choices speak for themselves, but her latest piece of clothing entered the internet’s conversation on nepotism with a bang. While on her way to a meeting in Los Angeles on Jan. 6, Hailey was photographed wearing jeans and a cropped white baby tee emblazoned with the words "nepo baby."
Following the release of Vulture's Dec. 19 viral article "How The Nepo Baby Was Born," many celebrities have addressed their famous ties and the role their connections have played in paving their paths to success.
Hailey—who is the daughter of Stephen Baldwin and the niece of Alec Baldwin—has yet to officially weigh in on how she feels regarding the topic, but it seems as though she's chosen to take the label with pride.
Although she has yet to publicly give her two cents on the convo, she has previously discussed what it is like growing up in Hollywood with Gwyneth Paltrow during an episode of her YouTube series, "Who's in My Bathroom?"
"As the child of someone, you get access that other people don't have, right, so the playing field is not level in that way," Gwyneth told Hailey in the July episode. "However, I really do feel that once your foot is in the door, which you unfairly got in, then you have to work almost twice as hard and be twice as good."
She continued, "Because people are ready to pull you down and say, 'You don't belong there,' and 'You're only there because of your dad or your mom.'"
Despite the criticism that comes with it, the Goop founder shared her belief that children of famous people "shouldn't limit" themselves because of it, saying, "What I definitely believe is that nobody in the world, especially anybody [who] doesn't know you, should have a negative impact on your path or the decisions that you make."
The sentiment is one Hailey resonated with, responding to Gwyneth, "I need to hear this today."
More proof they're on the same page? Gwyneth commented on a photo of Hailey wearing the "nepo baby" tee by saying, "I might need a few of these."
