Ava Phillippe is having a pretty typical senior year of high school: She came out in a glamorous debutante ball in Paris, modeled for Rodarte’s dreamy Fall 2018 lookbook, and, in the past few weeks, has accompanied mom Reese Witherspoon to premiere events for A Wrinkle in Time across the globe. Most recently, on Tuesday night, the lookalike duo stepped out together on the red carpet in London for the film’s U.K. debut, where Phillippe unveiled a chic new bob haircut that hits right above her shoulders.
The 18-year-old’s new cut put all the focus on her gorgeous Valentino party dress, a black knee-length frock with puffy short sleeves and a black sash tied around the waist, and dotted with sparkly magenta hearts. She accessorized with strappy black Stella McCartney heels and wore glowing, natural makeup with a pop of fuchsia lipstick to match the accents on her dress. Phillippe posed for photos on the red carpet with her mom, who wore a knee-length, periwinkle blue Elie Saab gown with sparkles along the bottom, silver Christian Louboutin T-strap heels, and styled her own blonde hair in tousled waves. Phillippe spilled the details about her haircut and outfit on her Instagram Story on Tuesday. “Spontaneously chopped!” she captioned a pre-premiere selfie showing off the sleek new style, crediting London-based salon The Chapel with the cut.
But don’t worry—although Phillippe and Witherspoon now have pretty different cuts, they’re still the ultimate mother–daughter doppelgängers. In fact, as BuzzFeed pointed out, Phillippe’s new on-trend haircut looks a lot like the one her mom sported throughout the aughts. Back in 2002, Witherspoon starred in Sweet Home Alabama with her hair in a shoulder-length cut with choppy layers. And in 2008, around her Four Christmases era, she looked even more like Phillippe circa 2018, with a sleeker bob and short side bangs. Like mother, like daughter.
