Brooke Shields' two daughters take after their mom with their striking looks - and it seems they've also inherited her wardrobe.

As the mom-of-two appeared on the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon shared a photo of Brooke's older daughter Rowan looking stunning in a figure-hugging, strapless red dress. The 20-year-old put her hands on her hips as she posed in the showstopping look.

"Here's the reason I'm showing this, because this is your dress!" Jimmy explained to the 58-year-old.

Brooke confirmed that it was "my Golden Globes nomination dress", with Jimmy exclaiming: "So your kids are wearing your outfits now." But the actress explained that they had voluntarily worn her clothes - and had she made the sartorial suggestion, they might not have been so interested in her wardrobe.

"Had I been the one to suggest it, they would have been like, 'That's so weird, Mom, it's old'", Brooke teased, continuing: "They went down into my archives and I think it looks better on her!"

Jimmy gave fans a side-by-side look of Brooke wearing the dress in 1998, and Rowan giving the gown a new lease of life more recently. The similarities between the mother-daughter duo was striking.

Brooke revealed that behind the scenes that iconic red dress caused controversy, as "the day I was brought into the agency, they read me the riot act", she explained, as they told her: "You are never going to be treated seriously as an actress if you just look like a movie star, you should never wear red on the carpet."

But the actress felt vindicated when next year everyone was wearing red on the carpet, and she showed them a magazine just to prove it, saying: "I'm ahead of my time!"
