12 Celebrity Daughters Who Look Exactly Like Their Mothers

They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree – a maxim that is quite literally the case when it comes to Gwyneth Paltrow’s daughter. Apple Martin, the actor’s daughter with Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, who turned 18 in May, bears a close resemblance to a young Paltrow in a snap her mother posted on Instagram to celebrate her birthday. Likewise, Leni Klum, also 18, was the mirror image of her mother Heidi when she attended prom in a strapless black dress previously worn by the model back in 1998. Meanwhile, Blue Ivy Carter, 10, looked just like a younger version of her mother Beyoncé when she attended an NBA game this week.

As well as looking alike, celebrity offspring have been known to emulate their mothers’ career paths too. Take Kaia Gerber, for example, who has successfully followed supermodel mother Cindy Crawford down the catwalk, while Kate Hudson and Zoë Kravitz have both joined their actor mothers, Goldie Hawn and Lisa Bonet respectively, on screen. Ditto the French-American ingenue Lily-Rose Depp and her fellow Chanel muse mother, Vanessa Paradis.

Here, Vogue takes a look at the A-list mothers and daughters who look most alike.
