Gabrielle Union recently shared a #WomanCrushWednesday post on Instagram, and she chose to honor Lisa Bonet, 52, and Zoë Kravitz, 31. Brace yourself: You will audibly gasp when you see this series of photos, because the mother-daughter duo seriously look like twins.
In the first two pictures, Bonet is holding her daughter’s hand at the beach, and they’re both wearing black cover-ups while rocking gorgeous waist-length braids. The following two photos show the two posing together on red carpets.
“I wanted to highlight the bond between mothers and daughters as I try to make my way as a new mom with baby girl,” Unioncaptioned the post. “I’ve always admired the obvious love, respect, and nurturing village Zoë’s parents created and how beautiful it has been to witness as a mom just trying to figure it all out.” Union continued to say that Kravitz and Bonet (who is also known as Lilakoi Moon) were “two strong and talented women.”
“Lilakoi has inspired me for years with her class, effortlessly cool style, and kindness,” Union wrote. “Leave it to this mother-daughter duo to steal your heart…@kaaviajames look forward to these type of moments! Let us lift them up in the light of goodness and hold them there.”
If you can’t tell who’s who in the photos, you’re certainly not alone. Union’s Instagram followers went wild in the comments section, wondering if they are seeing double. “Actual TWINS,” one person commented, while another wrote “Omg they look like sisters ? ?”
“Holy cow, does Lisa age?” wrote another. (We’re wondering the same thing.)
At 52, Bonet looks better than ever. The Road to Paloma star, who’s married to Jason Momoa, take her skincare “very seriously,” she told New York Times. “I also have really sensitive skin that requires a good amount of care. I’m not one of those people who can go to sleep with their makeup on and wake up and be fine.”
At night, Bonet said that she uses products with active ingredients to encourage cell turnover. “I use a scrub by my facialist Dayle Breault a couple times a week. Or I’ll use Derma Peel by Rhonda Allison,” she said, adding that she alternates between them. “For cleansing, especially in the morning when I’m looking to sweep the dead cells away, I use Dayle’s face soap or Rhonda Allison Pumpkin Cleanser.”
Then, she applies serums. “I switch back and forth between Dayle’s Truthful Serum or Le Mieux TGF-B Booster. I change it according to whatever my skin is needing that day,” she said.
Bonet has also had her hair in dreadlocks since she was in her 20s, and she takes great care of them. “It’s hilarious when people who don’t know about dreads wonder, ‘Do you wash your hair?’ The answer is ‘Of course,’” she told The Times. She just prefers to stick to natural ingredients when it comes to her hair products. “I use organic coconut oil, which is what I use on my body as well.”
