Ava Phillippe Cut Her Hair into the Cutest, Shoulder-Grazing Bob

Ava Phillippe and her mom, Reese Withrespoon, don’t look so much alike anymore. The 18-year-old—who is constantly battling comparisons to her lookalike, superstar mom—recently took a pair of scissors to her signature, wavy blonde hair and hacked off a few inches. The result? A crazy-chic, shoulder-grazing bob that we need to replicate immediately.

The up-and-coming model debuted her new ‘do at the European premiere of her mom’s film, “A Wrinkle in Time,” in London, England on Tuesday. Phillippe, who’s the daughter of actor Ryan Phillippe, turned heads on the red (more like, blue) carpet in a heart-printed Valentino dress and Stella McCartney shoes. But as good as Phillippe’s outfit was, it was her hair that caught the beauty community’s attention.

While posing arm-in-arm with her mom, Phillippe showed off her just-cut bob, which she wore sleek, stick-straight, and tucked behind one ear. In fact, Phillippe’s bob was so fresh that she didn’t have it a few hours before hitting the red carpet. According to her Instagram, the haircut was a spontaneous decision.

“Spontaneously chopped!” Phillippe captioned an Instagram story, thanking The Chapel, a salon in London, for her new ‘do.

Though Phillippe and Witherspoon still look like carbon copies of each other (hey, they are blood-related, after all), at least now we have one key feature to tell them apart. Now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to chop off our hair too, à la Ava Phillippe.

Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe’s Most Uncanny Twinning Moments Yet

Ava Phillippe might be a rising model (as seen by her slay-worthy debut for Rodarte), but first, she was known as her mama Reese Witherspoon‘s uncanny look-alike. The teenager made headlines last year when her mom posted a selfie of the women looking like literal reflections of each other. Since then, fans haven’t been able to get enough of the duo’s double-take-worthy twinning moments.

Ahead, we’re rounding up every time Ava looked like a carbon copy of her mom. From red carpet appearances where they embodied the twin dancing emojis to selfies where can’t tell the Witherspoon-Phillippe ladies apart, these pictures are seriously a mind trip. Though there are a lot of mom-and-daughter duos who look alike in Hollywood (shout out to Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford), Reese and Ava are definitely one of the most freakily uncanny.

It’s the selfie that ramped up the lookalike comments. Fans couldn’t get over how much Reese and Ava looked like reflections looking at each other in this selfie taken before the premiere of “Big Little Lies” in February 2017. 

Blast from the Past

Ava first sparked doppelgänger when Reese posted this picture of her for her 16th birthday. Fans were surprised to learn that the person in the picture wasn’t a teenage Reese, but her daughter. 

Golden Girls

Like Mother, Like Daughter

Ava and Reese proved their doppelgänger potential with this outdoor selfie in May 2017, modeling Reese’s clothing line, Draper James.

For Draper James’s spring line, Reese recruited her daughter as a model. The photos, which show the women embracing each other, are a cheeky nod to how many people think they’re lookalikes. (Us included.)

Hug it Out

This April 2017 selfie featured all three of Reese’s kids, but all we can see is how much she looks like her daughter as they put their faces side-by-side.

Ava Phillippe Made Her Modeling Debut, and She Looks Stunning

Ava Phillippe is following in her parents’ Hollywood footsteps, but not in the way you might think. The 18-year-old daughter of Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe recently made her modeling debut, and she looks stunning.

Along with big-name stars like Rowan Blanchard and Kirsten Dunst, Ava lent her face for Rodarte’s Fall/Winter 2018 Portrait Series. The teenager appeared in two photos for the fashion house. One look featured her in a flowy, pale pink gown with giant red flowers on her wrist and waistline. The other look featured Ava in a tiered skirt with sunflowers on her wrists and an umbrella made out of leaves in her hands.

“🙀🌹thank you to the one and only @rodarte (@kateandlauramulleavy) for this incredible opportunity to play dress up and support the creativity of women!” Ava wrote on Instagram.

Of course, like the proud mama she is, Reese dedicated an Instagram to Ava, congratulating her on her accomplishment. “My girl. Beautiful inside and out. So proud of you @avaphillippe ❤✨” Reese wrote.

No word from Ryan, but we’re sure he’s a proud papa, too. Reese and Ava may look alike, but the most common trait between the two might be their unparalleled ambition and strength.
