They say that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree—a maxim that rings true for these celeb moms and their beautiful offspring!

These duos prove that ‘it girl’ beauty is in the DNA, from being partners-in-crime to having uncanny resemblances. But more than great genes, the girls also take after their mom’s striking qualities and captivating talents. It doesn’t hurt that their moms look so youthful they could definitely pass as their older sisters!

Check out a few of our favorites from these mom and daughter duos that prove je ne sais quoi runs in the blood.

Mikaela Martinez is one of our favorite OG Candy cover girls, and her 17-year old daughter Noelle looks as stunning as her!
