29+ Models & Their Mini-Me's
| LAST UPDATE 02/20/2023
They say the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, and for these models, their daughters are the perfect example. Whether it's on the runway or the 'gram, we're officially seeing double.
Milla Jovovich & Ever Anderson
We can't tell if its the crazy hair color or deep ocean blue eyes that are making this mother-daughter duo completely identical. While the orange flare was specifically prepared for The Fifth Element, and Mila's natural hair is chocolate brown, these two are iconic mini-me's.
Not only was Mila much older while filming this production, we can already tell her daughter is slowly morphing into her model mother. Who knows? Maybe Ever will also become one of the highest-paid supermodels in the world sometime down the line (like mom was in '04!).
Demi Moore & Rumer Willis
We want Moore! No, we're not seeing double, but this mother-daughter duo is extremely close to being mistaken for identical twins. Not only does Demi Moore not look her age, their long jet-black hair and matching facial expressions have us doing a serious double-take.
From looks to facial expressions, and even venturing into the same industry success. Demi and ex-husband Bruce Willis clearly raised Rumer in a way that has shaped her to become a boss-lady, and she aced it! Of course, there are differences, but we can't stop staring at them. It's like a mirror has been placed between them!
Kate & Lila Grace Moss
At the age of 14, Kate Moss was scouted while casually strolling through an airport. Just two years later, she covered The Face - and the rest is history. It wasn't long before she became known as Hollywood's 'it girl.'
But in 2002, Moss gave birth to her modeling prodigy, Lila, and eventually retired to pass on her legacy. Though Lila is only 19, she has already graced Met Galas, red carpets, and magazine covers. But, it was her runway debut when she opened for Miu Miu Spring 2021 collection that made Kate especially "emotional," she told People.
Jerry Hall & Georgia May Jagger
She has the moves like Jagger and model material like her mama! Jerry Hall, at age 16, moved from Texas to Paris to pursue her career. Despite her behind-the-camera fame, she gained further recognition after getting cozy with Rolling Stones' Mick Jagger. Hall went on to star in Chanel's 2009 campaign and act as a side hustle.
While Georgia May had multiple career opportunities, she followed in mom's footsteps and opted for modeling. Now 29, her previous gigs have included runway walks for Balmain, Miu Miu, Versace, Fendi, and Tom Ford. Not to mention, Georgia May has embraced the gap between her teeth, making it her signature feature. And we love it.
Brooke Shields & Grier Hammond Henchy
Started from the bottom now she's here. Shields started modeling as a child with a doll-like face everyone adored. Her piercing blue eyes and naturally-colored soft pink lips sparked enough attention to land her a role in Pretty Baby at age 12, which took off her career. But there's no pressure when it comes to her daughter.
Although Brooke had the Hollywood dream, she knows it is up to her daughter, Grier, to choose which path to follow. The 55-year-old told The Post, "I think they need to really have as much of a conventional upbringing as you can in New York City, with kids their own age, and not be thrown into something with all the pressure."
Monica Bellucci & Deva Cassel
We recognize those brown eyes and famous pouts anywhere. Model genes are strong, so why not put them to good use? The Italian model started off at the top, working with Dolce & Gabbana and Dior. She was the perfect symbol of the 80s, with her wild curls and vintage aesthetic. For Deva, history is repeating itself.
At the age of 18, Deva has achieved so much while mimicking her mom's captivating glare. She is the brand ambassador for Dolce & Gabbana, starring in their Dole Shine advertising campaign. She has also been the cover girl for Elle and Bazaar. Not to mention, she is no stranger to the runway and made appearances during Paris Fashion Week.
Kimora Lee, Ming Lee & Aoki Lee Simmons
American model, businesswoman, and fashion designer Kimora Lee Simmons might have set the bar too high for her daughters. While she kicked off her modeling career at just 13, her contracts with Chanel and Karl Lagerfield seemingly motivated her off-spring.
Kimora's daughters, Ming Lee and Aoki Lee, have recreated their mom's career path. After watching their mom on the runway as kids, it was all about fashion. Once Aoki graduated from Harvard, she signed with One Management agency along with Ming. While Aoki has appeared in SKIMS ads, Ming keeps up with her 1 million Instagram followers.
Vanessa Paradis & Lily Rose-Depp
The child of a French bombshell and A-list actor was destined to possess some serious star power. Naturally, Lily-Rose Depp was born into the industry in one way or another. It was just down to her which path she chose. Originally, Vanessa was into music but became Chanel's muse after starring in their 1991 perfume ad.
When Lily was old enough, she was finally allowed to choose between modeling, music, and motion pictures. At 15, she welcomed a Karl Lagerfield lifestyle, chosen to be Chanels' brand ambassador. Now 22, she has been nominated for two César Awards and won the Best Actress award for My Last Lullaby (2019). Her parents must be so proud!
Lily Aldridge & Dixie Pearl Followill
While Alridge is primarily famous for her time flying high as a VS angel, she has definitely made marks in other areas of the industry. She has appeared in Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue alongside Chrissy Teigan and Nina Agdal for the 50th-anniversary cover in 2014. If we thought that was iconic, her daughter is the ultimate mini-me.
Little Dixie is her mom's muse. Dixie made a slight debut as an infant when she appeared cradled on her mom's hips for Vogue. According to People, the VS model made it clear her daughter can do "whatever she wants to do!" Although she did joke that her husband "would not want her anywhere near the runway." Well, only time will tell.
Chrissy Teigen & Luna Legend
Chrissy Teigen: the ultimate mom, chef, TV personality, and former model. After being discovered by a photographer at 15, she made her debut after featuring in Sports Illustrated as a cover girl. And with her beautifully tanned skin and piercing brown eyes, we can see why. Now, little Luna is making an entrance.
Luna is Chrissy's twin! Especially considering their glowing complexion. In 2020, Luna made her modeling debut with her mom by her side. The two were captured holding hands and posed for Quay Australia. The pair looked super cute in matching swimsuit couture and glossed-out shades. We have a superstar in the making, people!
Cindy Crawford & Kaia Gerber
The 1992 Pepsi Super Bowl girl, also known as the iconic supermodel Cindy Crawford, has a slight problem on her hands. That being, her daughter Kaia might be the new star of the clan! Cindy pretty much ruled the supermodel industry of her time and was the only one to hijack headlines for sporting a white tank and denim shorts.
While Cindy let over 1,000 magazines borrow her face for covers, it wasn't long before she acknowledged her daughter had the exact same flair. In 2017, Kaia made her runway debut for Calvin Klein and stole the show. Soon after, Miu Miu, Chanel, and Marc Jacobs approached her to model while her Cindy-like complexion covered Vogue.
Yolanda, Gigi & Bella Hadid
Viral Almond Queen and RHOBH star soared through her career. During the 80s and 90s, Yolanda had major successes - and it began with Ford Models at the young age of 16. The Dutch bombshell posed poolside or by the ocean. She loved the life modeling gave her, so she saw the opportunities with her daughters.
The industry took a turn for both Gigi and Bella. Gigi was destined to model, as Yolanda confessed to Larry King she "couldn't take a bad picture of her." Both daughters were taken to NYC and had five agencies to choose from. Recently, Bella made modeling history after posing in Coperni's spray-on white dress at Paris Fashion Week.
Christie & Sailor Lee Brinkley-Cook
Brinkley gained worldwide fame after featuring in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and consecutively covered the magazine in 1979, 1980, and 1981. Her annual appearances gained her recognition from the likes of Glamour, Harper's Bazaar, and Cosmopolitan. Now, her twin daughter has stepped on the scene.
Sailor Lee, 23, had embodied her mom in so many ways. Despite the spitting-image similarities, they both possess the perfect over-the-shoulder pose. She was welcomed into IMG Models alongside the Hadid sisters and Georgia May Jagger. Her most notable moment goes to her 2017 Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, just like mom!
Heidi & Leni Klum
Heidi and Leni are the ultimate mom/daughter dream team. The Victoria's Secret Angel was at the top of the pyramid alongside Gisele Bündchen and Tyra Banks. Heidi went on to an abundance of job offers, walking runways for Zac Posen and Vera Wang. However, her daughter is following in her path as a clone of the German-American icon.
Leni loved watching mom have fun at work, and when she was 12, Brandy Melville offered her to model, but Heidi didn't allow it. Now, she made her debut on the cover of Vogue Germany, explaining, "That's, like, insane that I did that as my first job, and my mom was with me, which made it so much fun. It was just such a good day." Aw.
Pat & Anna Cleveland
Pat Cleveland turned the industry upside-down when she became the first African-American to walk the runway and have her face printed during the 60s and 70s. She modeled for Ebony after being spotted by a Vogue editor and raced through stardom from that moment on. So, it's no question she was an inspiration for her daughter Anna.
Anna was graced with help from her history-making mom. Starting early on, the 32-year-old walked the Moschino runway at the age of 5 and the Karl Lagerfeld show at 13 with Pat by her side! But Anna knew she really made it when she strutted alongside Cara Delevigne and Yasmin Le Bon in the Giles Spring/Summer 2015 show.
Kristen & Lily McMenamy
Kristen McNemany was known for her mysterious aesthetic on the runway. During the 90s, according to L'OFFICIEL, she engulfed a powerful "unconventional, androgynous look," breaking through any "extreme beauty transformations." It seems her effect still has a choke-hold to this day as her daughter Lily, 18, has adopted the same style.
Lily turned heads on the Marc Jacobs 2013 Fall/Winter runway. Her "choppy cut" was accessorized with nothing but pinstripe hotpants and opera gloves, cloning Kristen's 1992 Karl Largerfield aesthetic. More so, she glared into the audience with the same daring siren-eyed look as her mother. Name a more fierce duo. We'll wait.
Kim & Ireland Basinger-Baldwin
Kim Basinger, famous for her role as Vicki Vale in Batman (1989), initially began her stardom career in modeling. At 16, she signed with Ford Models. She flourished in the 70s and 80s after moving to the Big Apple, portraying the ultimate femme fatal aesthetic. But now it's Ireland's time to shine, taking on one cover at a time.
Ireland, daughter of Alec Baldwin, now 27, tip-toed into films just like her mother. She appeared in Grudge Match (2013) and A Dark Foe (2020), but her heart belongs to magazines. After signing with DT Model Management, she covered Marie Claire Mexico and Elle Bulgaria. She also became the face of Guess after its 2017 Fall campaign.
Jennifer Flavin & Sistine Stallone
The 54-year-old beauty is married to the one and only Sylvester Stallone. But she had her first taste of stardom years earlier. The model signed with Elite Modeling Agency early on and became an inspiring entrepreneur after launching her Serious Skin Care line. No surprise, she has been a role model for her daughter, Sistine.
The 24-year-old is one out of the three Stallone sisters. Taking after her mother, Sistine signed with IMG Models in 2016. Her model debut kicked off walking for Chanel and featured in Glamour. Opportunities kept rolling in, and in 2017, she covered Elle Russia and walked the Dolce & Gabbana runway at Men's Fashion Week in Milan.
Beverly Johnson & Anansa Sims
Beverly Johnson marked her claim to fame when she made modeling history. She empowered the industry after becoming the first African-American model to cover American Vogue in 1974 and the first Black woman to appear on the cover of Elle, the French edition. As a huge inspiration to all women, she had a major impact on her daughter.
While Beverly had signed with Ford Models, she, later on, became a part of Wilhelmina Models - as did her daughter Anansa Sims. When Anansa secured her position in the industry, she landed a Glamour cover alongside modeling icon Ashley Graham. What better way to enter the industry than being surrounded by ground-breaking role models?
Uma Thurman & Maya Hawke
The Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill symbol gorged in the industry. While primarily known for her award-winning roles, she spent time modeling before hitting the lights, camera, and action! In 1985 and 1986, she covered British Vogue and dabbled in Glamour for a while. But it looks like her daughter is giving her a run for her money.
Maya Hawke, almost identical to her super-mom, has followed the path Uma walked on. She appeared in Calvin Klein's 'Calvin or Nothing' campaign and was the face of All Saints' Spring/Summer 2017 collection. But of course, she had to try out acting to see the hype and made her debut by starring in Stranger Things season 3 as Robin Buckley.
Lucie de la Falaise & Ella Richards
Think YSL, and there is likely only one name that comes to mind. The Welsh-born French stylist and former model invested most of her life in the fashion industry. Lucie's aunt was YSL's muse in the 70s, so she was blessed at the age of 16 after being chosen as a closing bride in the couture show.
Closing a YSL show is cool, but take a look at Ella Richards's career path. The 25-year-old is a prime example of rock n' roll meets fashion. She appeared in campaigns for Burberry, Michael Kors, and Stella McCartney, while Vogue Australia wrote an exclusive on her in 2015 and marked her as the potential new Cara Delevigne.
Patti Hansen & Alexandra Richards
Speaking of rock n' roll, Patti Hansen, wife of Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards, joined the modeling industry alongside Beverly Johnson at Wilhelmina. The rockstar WAG pulled through with hardcore fashion during the 70s and 80s and covered Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Esquire while bagging deals with brands like Calvin Klein.
Rockstar daughters, Alexandra and Theodora, patterned their mother's career. As a sister duo, they posed for Harper's Bazaar and were joined by Patti for the cover of Town & Country in 2011 and 2018. Tommy Hilfiger gave opportunities for both girls, being Alexandra's debut, and drew in the likes of Burberry, Dior, Abercrombie, and more.
Christy Turlington & Grace Burns
Christy's flawless complexion represented Calvin Klein's 1989 Eternity campaign and again in 2014 - as well as Maybelline. Although, she insisted on moving on from the industry after enrolling to study Comparative Religion and Eastern Philosophy in NYC. Don't worry, though. Her daughter took over from where she left off.
Grace is slowly but surely rising to the top. It's evident she has high ambitions, and while she possesses her mom's looks, she has graced campaigns for Muse Magazine and The Perfect Magazine, which resembles a Kim Kardashian-inspired 70's look. Even Pop Magazine recently wrote a cover story for the up-and-coming fresh face in town.
Lisa Rinna & Amelia Hamlin & Delilah Hamlin
The Real Housewife of Beverly Hills star has made it clear she'll do anything for a dollar. She obtains a similar mentality to momager Kris Jenner, when it comes to making a career for herself. She had her fair share of shoots but admits her time spent modeling is nothing compared to what Delilah and Amelia have already achieved.
The two have soared through the industry. Older sister Delilah stepped onto the runway for the first time in 2016, while Amelia made her debut in 2017. But this was just a smidge of what was in store for them. Since then, they walked side-by-side at New York Fashion Week 2020, while Amelia alone has walked for Diesel and Balenciaga.
Bebe Buell & Liv Tyler
Bebe spent her wild days modeling as a Playboy Bunny and rocking out with her personal playmate, Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. Together, they welcomed Liv Tyler into the world, and it was talent from the moment she was born. Although Liv might not be Playboy Playmate of the Month like her mom, she has some career moves up her sleeve.
Liv Tyler, now 45 years old, has loved embracing her parents' bold aesthetic. Her long dark hair and dark red lips have been a work of art for many photographers. Her career began at the age of 14 when she made her debut on the cover of Seventeen. Although she never applied to be a Playmate, she has clearly inherited mom's genes.
Rachel Hunter & Renee Stewart
Straight out of New Zealand, Rachel Hunter adorned various Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issues throughout her career. She signed with Ford Models NYC, and her bouncy blonde locks captured the attention of many photographers, which landed her face on the covers of Vogue, Elle, Rolling Stone, Playboy, and Cosmopolitan.
While Renee captures her mom's facial essence, her assorted talents led her in different directions. She has focused her time on professional dancing. However, she has dabbled in the modeling industry. That being said, her face was wanted for James Perse's campaign and also on the runway for Dolce & Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week.
Adriana & Valentina Lima Jaric
Prior to becoming "the most valuable Victoria's Secret Angel," the Brazilian model dominated the industry immediately from age 15. She moved to NYC after winning Ford's Supermodel search in Brazil and signed with Elite Model Management. She devoted her time to VS after receiving her wings, being the longest-running model from 1999-2018.
But after her success on the runway, the bombshell focused on motherhood. According to People, she said, "the best job in the world for me is being a mom." She has also confirmed little Valentina (above, right) has quite the personality, "always smiling. It's amazing." Do we have another angel on our hands?
Iman & Alexandria "Lexi" Jones
It's not surprising to see a star in the making when one's parents are supermodel mom, Iman, and rockstar dad, David Bowie. Iman, the most striking Somali fashion model of her time, was the muse for Gianni Versace, Thierry Mugler, Calvin Klein, and YSL. Though her daughter is welcomed in the industry, it's up to her to decide.
Iman told Porter magazine her daughter is in high demand and has been "contacted by several heavyweights in the fashion industry… every agency, every designer." But instead, her daughter has become an art enthusiast, expressing over socials that she feels "freed" from her mind when painting.
Gisele Bündchen & Vivian Brady
The Brazilian bombshell has been one of the highest-paid models since 2001. Due to her top-notch career, she became the 16th richest woman in the industry by 2007. After being scouted in a shopping mall for Elite Modeling Agency, she has had years of experience. And it seems her daughter has already taken an interest.
It seems like Vivian Lake was Gisele's dream come true. She loves spending time with her and encourages her to take part in mommy/daughter activities like meditating and horseback riding. Just like mom, when Gisele captures photos of their bonding time on socials, Vivian definitely knows how to strike her best pose!
Kris & Kendall Jenner
The momager of six is one of the most iconic businesswomen of our generation. But before she spent time in the delivery room, Jenner had her fair share of modeling gigs. Though she quickly realized it wasn't her forte, she picked up top tips from the industry. When it came down to Kendall's career, she picked up where she left off.
Kendall is one of the highest-paid models in the world. Aside from her perfectly symmetrical features, Kris secured opportunities that took her to the top, including numerous Vogue covers and walking runway for Chanel, Michael Kors, and Marc Jacobs. More so, she tapped into the entrepreneurial world, creating the 818 Tequila brand.
Devon Aoki & Alessandra Linville Bailey
Devon Aoki is more than a 2 Fast 2 Furious star. She told British Vogue she was scouted at a Rancid concert in NYC at 13 years old and ended up shooting a story for Interview magazine in exchange for backstage passes. Sounds like a pretty good deal to us. From that point on, things took off when Kate Moss introduced her to Storm agency.
After her heightening career performing on runways and posing for cover shoots, her daughter has recently found herself on the same career path. In an adorable IG post in 2017, Aoki posed with her daughter in a shooting chair, announcing her daughter Alessandra was the newest Guess girl! What a boss move.
Reese Witherspoon & Ava Phillippe
Although the Legally Blonde star has committed most of her career to acting, she has fumbled across a photographer here and there. Throughout her stardom journey, the bombshell featured on multiple covers for Elle, Vogue, Glamour, Vanity Fair, InStyle, and many more. Although, it seems her daughter has taken more of a liking to it.
Ava, 22, embodies Reese's puppy-dog glare, gorgeous blonde locks, and strong bone structure. No surprise, the modeling prodigy was chosen to model Beyonce's Adidas collection, Ivy Park, and has also posed with her mom for Draper James. Who knows if Ava might take on acting, she's got the perfect coach...
