Susan Tabak's Mother-Daughter Chic List
Age is marked by our children. The women I have selected remain undeniably chic. As their daughters grow up, they, too, have found their own personal style…
Anna Wintour in Chanel Haute Couture is classic and elegant. Bee’s choice, Nina Ricci, is youthful and appropriate. The blue dress brings out her luminescent skin tone.
I think this photo speaks for itself.
Jackie Kennedy – forever a style icon. This photo was obviously taken many years ago. She just looks so beautiful here. Beyond many of her responsibilities, Jackie loved the American Ballet Theatre. Now Caroline has assumed her mother’s role in chairing the ABT’s Spring Gala. Caroline looks chic in Prada.
I have mentioned Princess Caroline before in my New York to Paris Chic List. I often see her daughter Charlotte in Paris, and – dressed up or down – Charlotte is among the new jet set and very cool.
Carolina Jr. works with her mother and is her muse.
Jane Birkin is an actress and model. The Hermès Birkin Bag was named after her after the designer apparently saw her in photos carrying several Hermès bags while boarding a plane. She has two amazing looking daughters from two different husbands. Lou looks sexy and sultry, and Charlotte is hip in Balenciaga.
Patti Hansen is a former model and is wife to Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones. Patti and her daughters posed here for a Guerlain advertising campaign. I particularly like Theodora’s blue opaque tights with her red dress.
Three generations of great genes. Isabella, former face of Lancôme, has now passed the role to her daughter Elettra, in Yves Saint Laurent above.
Both looking chic at the Cannes Film Festival.
Diana Ross – still reigns Supreme. Her daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, has a more serene look.
Tina Chow – beauty icon and wife of famous restauranteur, Michael Chow of Mr. Chow – had a quiet elegance punctuated by her zen accessories. Her daughter China, an actress, keeps her look elegant and simple like her mom.
Both looking exotic in Yves Saint Laurent.
Susan Fales-Hill is not only an accomplished writer – her book Always Wear Joy is a beautiful tribute to her mother, Josephine Premice – she is highly photographed. I am always astonished how she can create a different look for each event she attends. Above, she is dressed for a disco party at the New York City Ballet.
Alba is an actress and the wife of artist Francesco Clemente. This chic-looking trio could pass for sisters.
