Style just might be genetic.
After a week of head-turning street style, runway shows and A-list parties, it's hard to ignore the epic parent-offspring relationships gracing the fashion and entertainment scene. Jada Pinkett-Smith and Willow Smith, Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz, Robin Wright and Dylan Penn —talk about good genes! Not only do these daughters physically look like their mothers, but their fashion choices remind us a lot of their mamas' from "back in the day."
It makes sense. A mom's closet is every daughter's first introduction to fashion. It's like having your very own vintage store in your home...even if the "owner" isn't always excited about your presence. Remember that awkward argument you had with your mom when you wore her [insert clothing or jewelry item here] without asking?
On the other hand, if your mother remarks that your new trendy digs are similar to something that she wore way back when, the eye rolls are strong.
Here's the thing: Your mom's right. Fashion recycles trends. Chokers, high-waisted jeans, crop tops, silk nightgown-like dresses. If Mama was in her prime during the '90s, she was most likely rocking today's trends back in the day.
To prove our theory, we compared our favorite Hollywood moms' fashion from the '90s with the style of their beautiful protégés. Keep scrolling to see the similarities for yourself.

Kaia Gerber is have a twinning moment. The up-and-coming model wears a similar dress silhouette with a very, very similar shoe.
We can only imagine what it would feel like to have unlimited access to the closet of style icon Diana Ross, especially with red-hot numbers like the pant suit above.
