They say ‘like father, like son’ but we say ‘like mother, like daughter’, especially with these incredibly stunning and photogenic ones. From famous actresses, musicians and supermodels on the international front, celebrity lookalike mothers and daughters also seem to thrive on Malaysian soil.
Here on Mother’s Day, we celebrate the united front of these mother-daughter pairs who share more than just beauty and talent, but also much mutual love and admiration.
Vanessa Paradis and Lily-Rose Depp Mom started out as a singer and spokeswoman for Chanel, and now Vanessa Paradis’ 17-year-old daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, is literally following in her mother’s footsteps by spreading her wings into the singing and acting worlds, plus recently landing a campaign gig for Chanel.

Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber With a mom in the form of Cindy Crawford, one of the ‘90s hottest supermodels, it can be a tall order to match for any offspring. But Crawford’s 15-year-old ‘mini-me’ daughter Kaia Gerber is going full steam in showing supermodel potential too, having already worked with famous photographers like Steve Meisel, Mario Testino and Bruce Weber.

Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz Lisa Bonet rose to fame playing Bill Cosby’s daughter in the hit ‘80s sitcom, The Cosby Show, and she had Zoe Kravitz after eloping with musician Lenny Kravitz on her 20th birthday. Zoe Kravitz, now aged 28, is definitely flexing her acting chops just like mom, having starred in Mad Max: Fury Road and the Divergent franchise, plus dabbling in music as frontwoman for her band, Lolawolf, when not acting. Both mother and daughter recently modelled for a Calvin Klein campaign, easily passing off as super photogenic siblings.

Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson Both mother and daughter are famous Hollywood actresses and they not only share the same sexy, bubbly blonde persona, but seem to defy the ageing process. Hawn is already 70 (gasp - as if anyone can tell) and has had a prolific career as an actress, producer and director, while 37-year-old daughter Kate Hudson, who shot to fame for her award-winning role in Almost Famous, is still basking in the limelight as an actress. Both mother and daughter also practise the same religion as fellow Buddhists.

Dree Hemingway and Mariel Hemingway When your ancestor is the great Ernest Hemingway, it’s a tall order to live up to, but both Mariel and Dree Hemingway, who share a similar strong, blonde All-American look, have forged their own paths in the limelight. Mariel Hemingway, 55, starred in Lipstick with her late sister, Margaux, and they became quite famous in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Daughter Dree Hemingway, now 29, has gone down the modelling route and has a burgeoning acting career.

Jerry Hall and Georgia May Jagger Modelling has profited both the beyond gorgeous mother and daughter pair. Jerry Hall was one of the world’s most stunning models in the ‘70s and from her marriage to rock star Mick Jagger, she had a few children, and one of whom is Georgia May Jagger. Georgia May Jagger, now 24, is enjoying her turn in the fashion and beauty spotlight having worked with mega brands like Chanel, Miu Miu, Versace, Thomas Sabo, H&M and Rimmel.

Lisa Marie Presley and Riley Keough She was the daughter of Elvis Presley and ex-wife of Michael Jackson, so fame has become second nature to Lisa Marie Presley, who has forged a singing and songwriting career herself. Head-turning good looks and talent have been passed down in equal measures to 27-year-old daughter Riley Keough, whose beauty has nailed her not only a modelling but an acting career too.

Kayda Aziz may look demure but this singer-songwriter’s musical foray into rap is miles away from her mother’s jazz-oriented background.
