No, we haven't gone back in time to Reese Witherspoon's early days on the red carpet...It's just her totally adorable, look-alike daughter, Ava Phillippe!

The 17-year-old daughter of Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe had an exciting night on Thursday, walking the red carpet by herself for the first time!

She attended a launch dinner for the Chanel No. 5 L'eau fragrance in West Hollywood, looking beyond chic in an olive top and a multicolored, tweed Chanel skirt for the event. She accessorized the look with a sequin gray Chanel mini purse and black strappy sandals with a rosette on the toe.

But it wasn't just her ensemble that screamed fabulous. Ava totally held her own, taking a page out of mom's book and modeling on the carpet as though she's been doing it for years. From her pose to her sweet smirk, she looked beyond confident and beautiful. 

Meanwhile, Witherspoon recently gushed to E! News' Marc Malkin about how proud she is of her daughter.

"She's just a sweetheart," she said. "And just a nice young woman who's turned out to have this huge heart and soul and, I'm just so proud of her."

It's no surprise that Ava attended the fashion event as Witherspoon hinted at her daughter's interest in the industry earlier this year.

"She's so much cooler than I am!" the Oscar winner told to Us Weekly at the time. "She's very cutting-edge, and she knows a lot about fashion, and she has her own sense of style, which is amazing."
