With Mother’s Day only a few days away it only makes sense that we take the time to stop and recognize our favorite celebrity mother-daughter duos! We know that with out one the other wouldn’t exist, and we would be deprived of the slayage that they instill in us. Keep reading to see who made the cut:
Lisa Bonet & Zoe Kravitz
It is hard to tell who is the mother and who is the daughter when this mother-daughter duo slays the scene. Lisa Bonet charmed us on The Cosby Show as Denise, the spirited and sometimes misguided daughter of Claire and Cliff Huxtable. And in reality, she grew up as her spirited on-screen personality and expressed herself through her care-free wardrobe. Lisa Bonet was one of the first women of color who took the street style notes of groups like TLC and merged it with a Bohemian flare that graces the wall of your local Free People store.
Zoe Kravitz has taken great notes from her mother throughout the years and merged Bonet’s sense of style with the Rock and Roll genes that she inherited from her father and musician, Lenny Kravitz. She gives us rockstar boho on a daily basis and switches up her hair to emphasize the severity of the look.
When the two ladies come together, like on that iconic Calvin Klein ad in 2016, we are given #FamilyGoals #Bodygoals and #Mommagoals all in one.
Gigi Hadid & Yolanda Foster
How often are we given mother-daughter SUPERmodels? No shade to the booking info in your bio, but there is definitely a difference between an Instagram model, a model, and a SUPER model. And this mother-daughter duo, comprised of international-working supermodels, stops traffic.
Yolanda Foster, who looked identical to her eldest daughter Gigi Hadid back in her day, slays every step and repeat that she graces with her presence. The retired super model knows how to dress for her body type and her age, which honestly rivals any young girl on the runway today.
Gigi has the effortless Cali-girl swag on lock. In her everyday street style you can find her in something distressed and or cropped with a loose fit. But when she wants to switch it up and remind the world that she still can give face and slay in something high-fashion and impossible to get our hands on; she can do that, too.
Apart, the two ladies look like a time warped version of each other and together, they slay!
Tracee Ellis-Ross & Diana Ross
Can we take a minute and pay homage to the queen of big, beautiful, textured hair? Ms. Diana Ross has been rocking her fluffed fro for years, regardless of its popularity. Subsequently, her daughter, Tracee Ellis-Ross was one of the first women in the 21st century on television rocking their natural curl pattern unabashedly. (This is also pre-Carols Daughter, Shea-Moisture, and Oyin.)
Aside from the hair let, us not forget that Ms. Diana Ross is an original DIVA, hunty. And her style is one that is elevated at all times. Floor lengths gowns are appropriate for any and every occasion and sparkles are a necessity. Not a hair is out of place, and the garment should feel privileged to be worn by the living legend that is Diana Ross.
In the same breathe, Tracee is a print pusher and a pattern killa! If you ever need ideas on how to mix and match the prints and patterns in your closet, we suggest you take a scroll down her Instagram. Everytime we see T-Murda (Heyyyyy, Tracee) at an event we hear Jay-Z’s infamous words in our head “I show you how to do this son…” She is out here taking the fashion risks with colors and designs that no one else takes. AND IT WORKS – whether it’s a shiny lame pant, color blocked prints, or just how her fit or outfit is layered together. Tracee has a style that is very rarely duplicated, and that might be because no one else can pull it off.
When these two dynamic forces come together, ISSA MOMENT!
Beyonce & Mrs. Tina Lawson
Who can forget this moment? The moment when we saw three generations of FIERCE on one stage? For decades, Ms. Tina has showed us her stage style and was able to use Destiny’s Child as the models to bring her designs to life. Then we were all able to partake in the fashions through the House of Dereon label in 2006, when this mother-daughter duo introduced us to the ready-to-wear line that embodied “where the sidewalk and the cat walk meet.”
Fast forward to now, Miss Tina, as the beehive affectionately calls her, is a fashion icon in her own right. We WILL take notes.
Beyonce is…well…BEYONCE. These days, she is giving us #maternityfashion goals and showing us that she can be preggers and still SLAY!
Together, these two never disappoint when it comes to their looks on and off the public stage.
Michelle and Malia Obama
The Forever First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughter, Malia, will forever deliver us from any fashion faux-pas with their style and grace.
Michelle Obama has put both unknown designers and everyday clothing stores on the map. When it comes to her wardrobe, Mrs. O creates a moment with the pieces the average career woman can wear.
Malia Obama shows off her long legs in almost every outfit. Whether it is wearing a legging or tight underneath her shorts to create a layering effect or a slit in her skirt that creates length in her outfit.
When these two ladies from the former First Family are photographed together, we see fashion royalty.
Do us a favor and kiss your momma on the cheek for always allowing you to raid her closet for the awesome fashion throwback moments that you want to re-live! And name some of your favorite celeb mother-daughter duos in the comments below.
