Melanie Griffith and her daughter Dakota Johnson are often the subjects for discussion since the 50 Shades star regularly appears on red carpets with her mother, but lately, it's Melanie's youngest daughter Stella del Carmen who's been making headlines. In an Instagram photo shared on Tuesday, April 3, the 21-year-old offspring of Melanie and Antonio Banderas showed off her new brunette mane that had many doing double takes to make sure it wasn't a picture of her older sister, but what caught our eye was that she was copying one of her mother's poses from one of her films from 1984. In the picture, Stella lounged in a vintage-inspired nude lace bikini, a beige sarong and a loose bun.

Last year, Melanie shared a throwback photo on Instagram from her 1984 movie Body Double. Apart from the retro leotard and mullet-like hairstyle, what stands out from the image in comparison to Stella's is that both mother and daughter can be seen posing almost the exact same way. Both of them were pictured leaning back onto their arms with their shoulders elevated, while looking towards the horizon, showing off their profiles.

In the past, both Stella and Melanie have shown their love for one another on their social media accounts. "She is my little goddess 💕 #inlovewithstella #proudmama #worldatyourfingertips," the loving mother wrote in a picture for Stella's 21st birthday. On their end, Stella has posted pictures of both her parents, but Dakota stays away from Instagram almost completely, having only uploaded two photos that show her support and involvement with the Time's Up movement.

Stella is a natural blonde like her older sister and mother, but when it comes to her personal aesthetic, she's decided to take on Dakota's darker locks. Dakota, 28, wore her natural shade until March 2013, when she made the switch. Two years later, the actress signed up for the 50 Shades franchise sporting dark tresses. Since wrapping up the final installment in 2017, Dakota has kept her brunette shade and now Stella is her twin, proving that she is following in her sister's beauty footsteps. There's no indication that she'll opt for a career in entertainment like the rest of her family, but if so, it appears as if we're looking at Dakota 2.0.
