Heidi Klum and her mini-me daughter Leni Olumi Klum stole the show in glimmering strapless column gowns at The Art of Elysium’s 25th Anniversary Heaven Gala held at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern on Saturday.
The mother-and-daughter duo has been making waves in the fashion scene with their often-coordinated looks, joining the list of other well-known mother-daughter tandems, like Cindy Crawford and Kaia Gerber, Kate Moss and Lila Grace Moss, and Yolanda Hadid and Bella and Gigi Hadid.
Celebrating the Art of Elysium’s 25th anniversary, Heidi and Leni showed off their amazing model physiques in similar form-fitting gowns, proving that the apple doesn’t fall very far from the tree.

Heidi Klum, 50, exuded timeless elegance in a nude strapless gown that beautifully embraced every curve of her slender frame.
Her exquisite Monique Lhuillier Fall 2024 gown featured crystal-trimmed gold sequins that were artfully placed against the double tulle fabric with a nude underlay to create a beautiful floral pattern.

Putting her cleavage front and center, the long-time America’s Got Talent judge opted to go bare neck. She added even more glitz to her already dazzling appearance by accessorizing with chunky gold earrings, several gold bangles on one wrist, and a few gold rings on her red-manicured fingers.
Styling duo Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn curated Klum’s stunning look.
Heidi wore her dirty-blonde hair down in loose waves, cascading around her bare shoulders, with her signature curtain bangs parted in the middle. To complement her nude gown, she wore earth-tone makeup, which included subtle smokey eyeshadow with a shimmering finish, mascara, and nude lipstick.

In contrast, her mini-me looked stunning in a vibrant red gown designed by Marmar Halim, an Egyptian fashion designer based in Dubai and London.
Like her mom, Leni Klum wore a form-fitting dress accentuating her slim model figure. She radiated power and passion in the shimmering red dress covered in dazzling sequin embellishments, giving its otherwise simple, straightforward silhouette a glamorous touch.
It was designed with a sweetheart neckline that allowed her to show off her cleavage, raw trims, and a floor-sweeping hem.

The 19-year-old rising model was also styled by Rob Zangardi and Mariel Haenn, who accessorized her with diamond drop earrings, a few rings, and a matching oversized sequin rosette choker around her neck, giving the outfit a romantic flair.
Her shoes were barely visible underneath her gown, but Leni reportedly wore a pair of Santoni heels.
Completing her glamorous look, Linda Hay gave the Intimissimi model thick winged eyeliner and fake eyelashes to highlight her blue eyes. She finished her stunning modern look with a pink blush and nude lipstick. Her chestnut-colored hair was pulled back into a sleek bun so as not to draw attention away from her gorgeous dress.
