The relationship between celebrities and their daughters can constantly be seen on social media. The similarity between many of them is undeniable, but there’s nothing better than the passage of time to make a proper comparison of how these stars looked in their youth. We know how Uma Thurman looks now and how her daughter Maya looks, but do you remember what Uma looked like at 21, the same age as Maya is now?
Bright Side wants to bring you the ultimate comparison between famous mothers and daughters, that proves real style can definitely withstand the test of time and that it can be passed on from generation to generation.
1. Catherine Zeta-Jones and Carys Douglas (17 &16 years old)
Catherine Zeta-Jones was born in 1969. Her daughter, Carys, was born in 2003. The features of both are extremely similar, and so is their style. The dress Catherine wore in 1987 could very well be worn by her daughter at this point in time. We love the resemblance between the 2 of them and the style that Catherine Zeta-Jones was able to create over time.
2. Uma Thurman and Maya Hawke (21 years old)
It was in the cards for Maya Hawke to pursue acting as a career, especially with 2 parents as talented as Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. She has already made a name for herself thanks to her performance in Little Women, as Jo March. She is also known for playing Robin Buckley in the Netflix instant hit Stranger Things. When both Uma and Maya wear black, they look just like sisters.
3. Melanie Griffith and Dakota Johnson (29 years old)
Dakota gained more popularity for her performance as Anastasia Steele in the renowned Fifty Shades of Grey movie trilogy, than she did for her famous last name. But let’s not forget that her mother is none other than the renowned actress and model Melanie Griffith.
Looking at pictures of both of them at 29, we can clearly see that they have very different styles. From their hair, to the colors in their wardrobe, to their makeup, the only thing that is similar is their smile!
4. Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith (20 years old / 19 years old)
It’s impossible to not be in show business if your parents are Jada Pinkett Smith and Will Smith. When looking at her features closely, it’s easy to see that Willow has a bit of both. It’s interesting to notice how both Jada Pinkett Smith and Willow Smith like flashy, colorful tops.
5. Demi Moore and Rumer Willis (32 years old)
Demi and Rumer are close and it is totally normal to see them walking down the red carpet together. Rumer is the fruit of Demi Moore’s marriage with Bruce Willis. That’s why we are not surprised that Rumer has devoted herself to acting. She has appeared in several films and series. One of her best performances was when she played Tory Ash in Empire.
Their looks are completely opposite: From Demi’s straight hair to Rumer’s wavy hair and Demi’s stylish black suit to her daughter’s romantic light blue style, we can see how mom and daughter aren’t into the same styles.
6. Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz (32 years old / 31 years old)
Zoë combines the beauty of Lisa Bonet with Lenny Kravitz’s magnetic charisma. The resemblance between Bonet and her daughter is undeniable, and so is her talent. She can be seen in Divergent as Christina, or in the television series Big Little Lies, where she worked alongside actresses like Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman.
Both mother and daughter stand out for their particular style that conveys a lot of soul and spirit. When Zoë used to have dreadlocks both of them looked so much alike, that we wouldn’t be surprised if people mistook them for sisters.
7. Carrie Fisher and Billie Lourd (27 years old)
Carrie Fisher brought Princess Leia to life in the Star Wars saga. Sadly, she passed away in 2016. Her only daughter, Billie, was born in 1992 and has appeared in several hit series, including American Horror Story. Both of them are known for being stylish and avant-garde.
8. Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger (27 years old)
Georgia is supermodel Jerry Hall and singer-songwriter Mick Jagger’s daughter. Both women have their own, distinct styles. While Georgia has more of that rock and roll attitude that the Rolling Stone’s leader has made so popular, Jerry Hall remains what many would call a classic beauty.
9. Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow (47 years old)
We’re dealing here with a family where beauty and talent are hereditary and come hand-in-hand with charisma. Both Gwyneth and Blythe look stunning in their forties. We can easily imagine Gwyneth wearing her mother’s 1990s outfit and also the other way around. They both share a classic style that never goes old and that also seems to be passed down from one generation to the next.
10. Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp (21 years old / 20 years old)
It’s amazing how Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp are so alike. They both look so good, whether it’s in 1993 or today. It seems like these pictures could have been taken at the same time and they could be sisters (or twins for that matter). Both styles are stunning, no matter what the age difference is between these 2.
Which style do you prefer? Do you prefer the style of the mothers from the ’80s and ’90s or the current looks of their daughters? Do you look like your mother? Let us know in the comments and post some mother-daughter look-alike pics!
