OPTION 1: GRANNY’S GIRL
Even though most of her information comes from anonymous tippers on Instagram, DeuxMoi sometimes seems to post about things she has seen with her own eyes. This proximity to celebrities makes her seem like no ordinary woman. But while bumping elbows with the big guns might not seem like something the average person does, it could definitely describe a typical weekend for someone already born into high society… like the granddaughter of a famous socialite.
At the height of her fame, Nan Kempner was partying with celebrity designers like Yves Saint Laurent. If her granddaughter, Meggie Kempner, is DeuxMoi, wouldn’t mingling with celebrities this way be extremely convenient?
- To begin with, an Instagram post made by model Kristina Romanova in July 2013 tagged two accounts. These were @deuxmoi and @mkempsyo — Meggie Kempner’s old account. From 2013 onwards, @mkempsyo constantly pops up where DeuxMoi is mentioned… and both accounts have featured Pinterest pinboards dedicated to Nan Kempner.
- In 2014, the Kempners launched a new clothing line inspired by their late grandmother. A comment under a Facebook post about it read, “so proud of the deuxmoi gals girl Meggie Kempner”.
- And finally, in DeuxMoi’s book Anon Pls, a fictional narrative that closely follows DeuxMoi’s path to fame, the protagonist works in fashion. And who would know more about the fashion world than a fashion entrepreneur?
Beyond that, however, the trail goes cold. Besides, DeuxMoi has denied the claim, saying that Meggie Kempner is “not associated with the account at this time” in an interview with Vanity Fair. But does that mean that Kempner never worked with DeuxMoi… or that she just doesn’t work with her now?
We will never know for sure.
