Model and actress Dylan Penn is set to make her big screen debut in Condemned (out Friday), but that's not the only way she's following in mom Robin Wright’s footsteps.
As she learns the ropes of the red carpet, it seems Penn is also taking cues from her famous mom’s chic minimalist style. And despite their 25 year age difference, the look-alike duo both gravitate toward streamlined silhouettes and tailored separates over anything too frilly. Their shared love of neutrals also reigns supreme in everything from classic LBDs to pristine white dinner jackets.
“Since I was really little my mom always said, ‘The simpler you go the better it is,’” Penn told us when we caught up with over the summer. "Like, don’t over do it. And as long as you feel comfortable, it’s going to be sexy.” In this case, mother really does know best.
Scroll down to see some of their trademark looks.
1. White Suits and Pointy Toe Pumps
Penn sported a skirted suit by August Getty in L.A. and a month later Wright wore a similarly crisp style with pants to the season 3 premiere of House of Cards. Both opted for simple black tops under their jackets and statement heels.
2. Button Downs and Skinny Jeans
At the launch of the Pour Les Femmes sleepwear line, the duo matched in classic blouses from the collection, skinny jeans, and brown booties.
3. Wrap Dresses
In Diane Von Furstenberg dresses and clutches, the stars prove that the effortless style works for any age.
4. Black Separates and White Blouses
While Wright’s ensemble is a bit more structured, Penn styled her jacket and trousers with a draped white tee. Both punctuated the look with sexy black sandals.
