Brooke Shields lent her red strapless gown from the 1998 Golden Globes to her daughter for prom over 20 years later.
There’s hardly anything we love more than a fashionable celebrity hand-me-down. And this one is quite the hand-me-down.
Brooke Shields just shared the sweetest prom moment with her daughter Rowan Francis Henchy. Brooke shares her teen daughter Rowan with her husband, film producer Chris Henchy. Rowan asked her mom if she could wear the actress’s iconic red dress to the 1998 Golden Globes to her prom. This is the very dress in which Brooke was nominated for her lead role in Suddenly Susan. The Golden Globes saw her second nomination for the role, and though she lost to Calista Flockhart for Ally McBeal, the gown is very special to Rowan.
Brooke took to Instagram to share a series of pics of her daughter getting ready for prom in the red strapless gown.
“I thought it was a special night when I was nominated for a Golden Globe and wore this dress in 1998, but nothing could have prepared me to see my daughter wearing it to her prom,” 58-year old Brooke captioned the photo.
The Blue Lagoon actress concluded the post by calling herself a “proud mama!” Brooke Shields’ daughter Rowan wore the star’s red 1998 Golden Globes gown to her high school prom this year.
Brooke had dressed to kill at the Golden Globes when she paired her red strapless gown with a matching wrap. The added bright-red lipstick and nail polish made her look even more classic and bold. The diamond rings visible on her left hand may be from her then-husband, Andre Agassi. Brooke divorced Andre Agassi in 1999.
For her 2020 prom, 18-year-old Rowan decided to switch some things up. She ditched the matching wrap and rocked lighter makeup, with only neutral shades on both her lips and nails. Rowan also added her personal touches with a black Hermès handbag, an understated bangle bracelet, several rings, and in true prom spirit, an elegant white wrist corsage.
Several Shields’ celebrity pals and followers gushed over the adorable mother-daughter fashion flashback:
“OH MY GOD, that is so SPECIAL!!!! I remember you in that gown that night! And now your beautiful daughter gets to make new memories with it. ❤️” Debra Messing wrote.
“That’s so cool! ❤️” Odd Mom Out creator Jill Kargman commented.
It’s Complicated star Alexandra Wentworth wrote, “You both are 🔥❤️.”
Helena Christensen wrote, “Congratulations to your beautiful, funny, smart girl.”
Brooke, also a mother to 15-year-old Grier Henchy, had previously opened up about whether or not she would want her daughters to go into modeling. Modeling was her way into the entertainment industry.
“The younger one has sort of been hinting around, but you know what, I won’t be the one pushing them into it. I think they need to have as much of a conventional upbringing as you can in New York City, with kids their age, and not be thrown into something with all the pressure,” Brooke told the New York Post back in 2017.
