Kate Beckinsale showed the apple doesn't fall far from the tree as she shared a cute throwback snap of her daughter.

The image, which the actress posted on Instagram, shows Kate and Lily a few years ago, looking identical as they are caught on camera in matching poses.

Kate wrote: "#FBF subconsciously having IDENTICAL body language."

And the star wasn't too proud to admit she had made a fashion faux pas, conceding the shaggy cardigan-type affair she had been wearing that day was a bit of a shocker.

She wrote: "@lily_beckinsale however wisely avoiding the rookie mistake of wearing a couple of car seat covers and a dog."

Lily, 17, is Kate's daughter with her ex Michael Sheen.
