Fashion Icons: Like Mother, Like Daughter


Some of the most famous female fashion icons, such as Kate Moss, are spreading their sense of style to the next generation: their daughters. These lucky girls grew up with the inside scoop of the dos and don’ts in the fashion world from their mothers’ experiences and wardrobes.

On Mother’s Day, Gigi Hadid posted a candid throwback of her mom on Instagram, with a caption that read “Happy Mother’s Day to my rock & the most inspiring, strong, and dedicated women I know – MY MAMMA […].” Inspiring is right! Yolanda’s modeling experience has definitely given Bella and Gigi an edge in the fashion world. Gigi is now one of the most famous fashion icons and models in America. The mother and daughters are often seen at special events together wearing their signature classic looks. For example, at the 2015 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show afterparty, Yolanda and Gigi coordinated their style by wearing monochrome outfits. The mother wore an all grey ensemble, comprised of a blazer with sweatpants and pointed boots, while her daughter wore an elegant, long, black dress with matching ankle strap heels.

In addition, Actress and Model Lori Loughlin is known for her flawless looks on Full House, which she passed onto her teenage daughters Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose Giannulli. Recently, in the Holiday Christmas World Premiere Screening of NorthPole, Lori and Olivia wore plaid trousers, while Isabella wore a plaid top. All three wore black accessories to allow the plaid to be the focal point. This was definitely a great mother daughter fashion moment. The two sisters have also been featured in a TeenVogue photoshoot, posing in various outfits incorporating platform sandals, lace shirts, denim staples, and several striped pieces. Not only have both girls been exposed to the fashion world, but it seems like they both want a career in the industry. Isabella is a fashion blogger and Olivia has a YouTube beauty channel.

Kate Moss’s 13-year-old daughter Lila Grace Moss Hack is also beginning to follow in her mom’s footsteps. When Kate got married in 2011, Vogue featured family photos from the wedding and did a photoshoot of Kate and Lila.This initial exposure gave Lila her first taste of the real modeling experience. As she is getting older, it is no surprise that Lila’s Style is beginning to mimic her mother’s. The two were seen sporting similar neutral stripe ensembles. Recently, Lila has been keeping up with the latest trends, including the iconic bomber jacket.

These are only a few of the fashion world’s favorite mother daughter duos. There are also many young daughters, such as North West, who are destined to follow in their mother’s footsteps. It’s only a matter of time until these girls emerge with killer style.
