And it's always fun to see how they paid tribute to their predecessor's success. Kaia Gerber has shared the runway with her mom, while Dakota Johnson has referenced her mom's work in her own films. Tracee Ellis Ross even played a superstar singer in a role that drew comparison to her mom Diana. Whether said daughters adopted their mom's craft or charted a new path, it's hard to deny where they get their talent from.
