Catherine Zeta-Jones’ daughter Carys slips into her mom’s 25-year-old dress for 21st birthday party

Passing on more than just good genes.

Catherine Zeta-Jones’ daughter, Carys Zeta Douglas, looked just like her mom as she reached into the actress’ fashion archives for her 21st birthday.

Carys shared a series of photos celebrating the milestone, sporting a glamorous Ungaro pink slip pink dress with lace accents and roses designed on the top.

She added minimal jewelry and strappy heels to accessorize the statement gown, and she styled her hair in loose curly locks.

Zeta-Jones –– who is shares Carys and brother Michael with husband Michael Douglas –– originally wore the pink dress while walking the red carpet at the 1999 MTV Movie Awards when she was nominated for, and later won, the award for best breakthrough performance for her role in “The Mask of Zorro.”

The Oscar winner, 54, looked remarkably similar to her daughter with her their matching hairstyle and silver strappy heels.

Carys smiled while posing for photos in the dress and even included one of a boy kissing her on the cheek while she held a flower.

Carys has been in the fashion world since she was a teenager, when she made her magazine cover debut posing alongside her mom for Town & Country in 2018.

“Fashion has been so important in my life, because my mom is like a fashion icon to me,” she told the outlet at the time. “I’m always looking through her closet.”
