They Got It From Their Mama: Stylish Celeb Moms and their Chic Children

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at BC chapter.

Suri Cruise, Blue Ivy, Moses and Apple, and the Pitt-Jolie clan: all these names are as well known as their celebrity status parents. Most  of them acquired star status before they could even walk…or in some cases before they were even born.With stardom associated with their name before they were even born, they had quite a reputation to live up to. But not to worry, with their stylish moms (and probably own personal stylists) they are well dressed in their designer clothes and diapers. Here are some of the most stylish celebrity children and their fashion inspiration: their moms!

Harper Beckham and her mom Victoria Beckham

Yes that is Harper supporting her mom’s show at Fashion Week, and yes she is rocking a top bun.

With a mom who is known around the world as Posh Spice, as well as having her own clothing line, Harper Beckham was put it stylish hands from the start. With her own fashion blog and the title of most stylish celebrity child (based off of a Stride-Rite poll), it is no wonder Harper made the list. It must be something that runs in the family too, for Harper’s older siblings are just as well-dressed with one of them having already modeled for Burberry.

Demi Moore and Daughters Rumer, Scout & Tallulah

Even at 51 years old, Demi Moore still looks flawless on the red carpet with those elongated legs, long and dark hair as well as flawless complexion; she may just age backwards. Just as fashion forward are Demi’s three beautiful daughters with former husband Bruce Willis, Rumer (25), Scout (22) and Tallulah (20). The girls are inspired by their mother’s fashions and have admired her style and closet full of vintage clothes since the second they could slip into her heels. Although the mother-daughter relationships between Demi and all the girls have been up-and-down at times, the style has remained constantly impeccable.

Suri Cruise and her mom Katie Holmes

Black and white never goes out of style, as we can see from Katie and Suri

This list would be incomplete without the girl whose favorite accessories were a purse and heels since the day she could walk. We all awaited with anxious eyes for Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise to have their baby, and we have not taken our eyes off of her since. She has worn everything from Crewcuts to Burberry to Milly and even some great European designers. The list goes on, and we love it all!

Reese Witherspoon and Daughter Ava

It is true that many celebrities’ kids look like their famous parents, but when one takes a glance at actress Reese Witherspoon and her 14-year-old daughter Ava they really have to do a double take. From the easy and casual style, to the classic style sunglasses and identical blonde hair, Ava not only looks up to her mom for advice on dating but clearly on some fashion advice as well.  Reese is known for being able to throw on loose tees, jeans, and a great pair of shoes for a Saturday stroll and pull of the effortless look; Ava seems to also be able to adapt her mom’s style with a youthful take on it.

The Affleck Trio and their mom Jennifer Gardner 

No matter what fashionable frock these kids are in, they always seem to have a smile on their faces!

When one things of Jennifer Gardner, the words humble and down-to-earth often come to mind. Her children seem to embrace their mother’s mentality, and it is seen in the laidback yet fashionable style they all wear. I cannot think of two celebrity’s kids who look cuter in glasses that Violet and Seraphina. And now with a boy in the Affleck-Gardner clan, the toe-headed trio make your hearts melt whenever you see them in their playful outfits.

Gwen Stefani’s Rockin’ Trio

What happens when your mom is former lead singer of No Doubt and also known for her punk-rocker (with a girly touch) looks? You are bound to be kids with some hardcore fashion pieces in your closet.  I mean, c’mon, your mom is not afraid to wear some of the edgiest looks and scream “Hollaback Girl” in front of crowds of people. Of course Gwen has toned her look down a bit since becoming a mom, but one can still admire her for her black blazers, sleek shades, blonde buns and on-trend cargo pants. Musician parents Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale can be seen toting their trio of trendsetting sons, Kingston (7),  Zuma (5) and Apollo (2 ½ months) in the latest edgy kids looks. Kingston is known for his epic hairstyles, hats and picking out his own outfits.

With today being Mother’s Day we want to acknowledge all moms, celebrity status or not, for being role models for their children in style, manners and values.
