“She loves to go into the archive and try things on, and it’s really fun,” Paltrow shared in an interview for “Today with Hoda and Jenna” aired on April 17, 2024. She was referring to a special archival closet in her home, dedicated to storing her iconic fashion looks throughout the years.

As Chanel muses, they consistently grace film premieres and fashion shows in stunning Chanel outfits. But first and foremost, Paradis was a fashion icon in the 90s, and as that era’s style has resurged in popularity, Depp has embraced it too—often incorporating pieces directly from her mother’s wardrobe.

Lily Rose Depp is no stranger to raiding her mother’s closet as she has been spotted in many of her mother’s iconic 90s pieces.

Flashback to when Kaia Gerber celebrated her 18th birthday dressed as the mirror image of her supermodel mother, reminiscent of Crawford’s appearances at the 1992 Versace “Rock ‘N Rule” Fashion Show and the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards. At both events, Crawford wore a similarly daring outfit that was just as avant-garde then as it is today.

Gerber loves wearing iconic pieces from her mother’s past looks. “I definitely take a lot of her vintage pieces because those are the most iconic to me,” Gerber told Harper Bazaar. “We’re not the same shoe size which is really upsetting to me because I thought that I could steal all of her shoes!”

Browse the racks at Urban Outfitters and it’s easy to see that vintage band t-shirts never go out of style. In 2020, Ava Sambora  posted pictures on Instagram sporting her mom’s vintage Bon Jovi shirt, humorously noting, “I got it from my mama (Like I literally got this shirt from my mom’s closet 🤪).”

To demonstrate that good genes (and rock music) run in the family, Ava — daughter of Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora — also included a photo of Locklear wearing the same shirt two decades earlier in her post.

Kate & Lila Moss

The saying “Like mother, like daughter” aptly describes supermodel Kate Moss and her doppelganger daughter, Lila Moss. Although Lila has large footsteps to follow, she is building an impressive career of her own, with a British Vogue cover and multiple major runway appearances already to her credit. While not exactly the same dress, Lila showcased an outfit of the day featuring a signature style from her mom’s closet.

The look was from the 2023 Royal Academy of Arts Summer Preview Party in London where Lila Moss channeled her mother’s iconic style by wearing her trademark garment: a slip dress. When seeking fashion inspiration, the up-and-coming model has consistently admired her supermodel mother. “It’s so funny because I would copy her outfits consistently,” Lila told Vogue last year in its Diary of a Model video series. She goes on to explain that she loves Kate’s minimalist approach to style, a philosophy that she embraces in her own fashion choices.
