Have you ever wondered how style develops? In the battle of nature versus nurture, the jury’s still out, but these six fashionable families make us wonder if there’s something in the water. Something very chic, that is.
The Obama Family
First Lady Michelle Obama‘s feminine power dressing has inspired us since the first campaign stop in 2008. Now it’s Sasha and Malia that pique our sartorial interests. Like their mom, the girls favor pops of color and elegant skirts with fitted tops. Wonder how many walk-in closets there are in the White House?
The Casiraghi Family
When Hermès names a handbag after your grandmother, you know you’ve got some chic shoes to fill. Princess Caroline of Monaco and her daughter Charlotte Casiraghi have certainly done that, and then some. Caroline’s elegant gowns are always great eye candy, and Charlotte’s collaboration with Gucci catapulted the jodhpurs trend. Royal grandmother Grace Kelly would be proud.
The Birkin-Gainsbourg-Doillon Family
Jane Birkin—another lady on this list who has had an Hermès bag named after her—is a constant reference for fashion lovers across the world. Her insouciance when it came to dressing (laid-back flares and a fitted T-shirt, carrying a wicker basket instead of a leather handbag) clearly rubbed off on daughters Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon. The fashion darlings have been muses for major designers, such as Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquièsre.
The Jagger Family
Jade, Lizzie, and Georgia May Jagger run the style gamut from models to designers. All have the edge of their dad, while Georgia May and Lizzie look like model mom Jerry Hall, and Jade takes after mom Bianca Jagger.
The Roitfeld Family
Carine Roitfeld and daughter Julia Restoin Roitfeld are basically fashion royalty. Carine, the Paris-born editor of CR Fashion Book, former French Vogue editor-in-chief, and Tom Ford’s eternal muse passed along plenty of fashion genes to daughter Julia. As the founder of Romy and the Bunnies, Julia passes her own fashion advice down to cool new moms and their little ones everywhere.
