From Apple Martin to Zahara Jolie-Pitt: 10 times celebrity kids rewore their famous parents' outfits.

If your mum was Gwyneth Paltrow, Cindy Crawford or Brooke Shields, it would be rude not to raid their wardrobes. 

We've got to give it to this line-up of nepo babies, they know how to upcycle, despite their astronomical wealth. And considering some of these stunning gowns have likely stayed in cupboards for years, it's fabulous to see them get a revamp. 

Here, we've sourced 10 of our favourite copy-cat kiddos.

Watch: Even celebrities need wingmen. Post continues below.

Apple and Gwyneth Paltrow. 

When an Instagram follower asked Gwynnie whether Apple wears pieces from her fashion archives, the actress and Goop founder obliged by sharing a photo of her daughter direct from her lavish walk-in-robe. 

But Apple wasn't wearing just any old thing. The 19-year-old was rocking the same Alexander McQueen gown her mother wore to the 2002 Academy Awards.

Valentina and Salma Hayek.

Celebrity stylist Rebecca Corbin-Murray confirmed speculation that Salma Hayek's daughter Valentina Pinault wore a gown from her own collection to the Oscars in 2023.

"We pulled this beautiful Isaac Mizrahi dress for Valentina from Salma's archive," she captioned a photo of the mother-daughter duo at the event. "Swipe to see when Salma originally wore it in 1997."

Zahara and Angelina Jolie.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt’s daughter Zahara wore the actress's Elie Saab Couture dress from the 2014 Oscars at the Los Angeles premiere of Eternals in 2021.

"My kids are all mixed with vintage, and in my old Oscars dress. We did all vintage and upcycled my old stuff," Angelina told Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet, revealing that all of her children borrowed something from their mum's collection that evening.

At another movie premiere for Eternals in 2021, one of Jolie's daughters re-wore an additional dress of hers. 

The teenager walked the red carpet alongside her family wearing an amended version of a black-and-white Dior gown originally worn by Jolie in 2019.

And to be fair - if Jolie was our mother, we too would raid her fabulous wardrobe.

Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford.

Kaia Gerber's been raiding her mum Cindy Crawford's wardrobe since she was just 13, which is when this snap was taken of her wearing the supermodel's Roberto Cavalli dress.

Cindy Crawford wore the same frock to the Conde Nast Traveler Readers' Choice Awards in New York City in 2003.

"I definitely take a lot of her vintage pieces because those are the most iconic to me," Kaia once told Harper's 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!"

Harper and Victoria Beckham.

Posh Spice is quite the fashion icon, regularly posting content on her Instagram of herself in fabulous dresses and outfits. And you best believe a lot of them have been designed by Beckham and are part of her eponymous label.

For 12-year-old Harper, she's one lucky lady.

Recently, Victoria posted an image of her daughter which showed her wearing one of Victoria's iconic purple dresses.

Any Real Housewives fans here?

If so, you'll particularly love this blast from the past with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Lisa Rinna, who was also a well-known actor on soaps a few decades back.

Rinna's daughter Delilah Belle Hamlin - whose dad is also famous actor Harry Hamlin - re-wore her mother's vintage Versace dress from the Oscars in 1998.

Coco and Courteney Cox.

Courteney Cox shared this side-by-side of herself and daughter Coco wearing the same dress 21 years apart. Court first wore it in 1998, while Coco gave it new life in 2019 when she was 14. 

"I'm not one to hold on to things but this was a damn good purchase! 21 years later...," the Friends actress captioned the snaps.

Rowan and Brooke Shields.

Brooke Shields had a moment of déjà vu when her daughter Rowan Henchy donned a very special gown to her prom in 2021.

"I thought it was a special night when I was nominated for a Golden Globe and wore this dress in 1998, but nothing could have prepared me to see my daughter wearing it to her prom," Brooke shared on Instagram, adding that she was one "proud mama!"

Debra Messing loved the way Brooke and her girl upcycled the look. "OH MY GOD that is so SPECIAL!!!!! I remember you in that gown that night! And now your beautiful daughter gets to make new memories with it," she shared in Brooke's comments section.
