The 2023 Cannes Film Festival has so far proven to be a family affair, with several celebrity offspring making their mark on the red carpet.

Some celebrity children have become familiar fixtures at events of this kind, like Gigi Hadid and Maya Hawke, who have both forged their own successful careers in the world of show business.

For others, like Cate Blanchett’s eldest child Dashiell, who lives his life out of the spotlight, Cannes signified a rare public appearance.

So, if you think you’ve spotted some familiar faces on the red carpet but can’t quite put your finger on who they are, we’ve done the digging for you.

Below, every nepo baby who attended the Cannes Film Festival in 2023.
