EmRata's Mom, Kathleen Balgley

It's no secret where Emily Ratajkowski gets her good looks. All you have to do is take a look back at the below Instagram to see (pardon the reference, here) she got it from her mama. Talk about genetically blessed.

On Monday Ratajkowski took to Instagram Stories to share an unbelievably stylish photo of, not herself, but her mother, Kathleen Balgley. And let me tell you folks, it's MAMA who Wins Fashion Today.

Sixty-something-year-old Balgley wears a Reformation-like ribbed black top with an attached choker—very EmRata, if you ask us.

And we can't NOT talk about the beauty. Her lips are perfectly glossed and her hair is the epitome of the perfect pixie cut. Major #HairCutGoals.

She's au naturel (according to Ratajkowski's caption), sexy, yet age appropriate, and most importantly noticeably comfortable in her own skin. YOU WIN, Kathleen! 9 Chic (and Affordable!) Leather Chokers That Fit Any Personality
