Double the Cute! Jessica Alba’s Matching Girls

08/07/2013 at 10:00 AM ET

Talk about adorable! Just two days apart, Jessica Alba treated us to not one but two cute instances of her girls in matching outfits.

On Monday, the actress (who wore a black polka dot dress, jean jacket and straw wedge sandals) and her daughters Honor, 5, and Haven, almost 2, attended Ralph Lauren‘s Fall 2013 Children’s Show in Sagaponack, N.Y. and Alba’s little fashionistas-in-training both donned the brand’s Nautical Seersucker Dress ($50) and white Mary Jane flats.

And as if that wasn’t sartorially sweet enough, we spotted Honor and Haven wearing the same DVF for Gap Kids floral frock while out and about with their mom in Malibu, Calif. on Saturday.

Alba is clearly having fun playing stylist to her daughters. And what mother wouldn’t. Tell us, do you dress your girls up in matching  clothing?

I hated it when my stepmother dressed my sister and me alike. LOATHED IT. I adored my little sister, but my stepmother’s theory of little girl’s fashion did not jibe with mine – a huge tomboy. So while my sister was really happy with all the Laura Ashley-upholstery prints and lace, I was disgusted. Plus, if one child is significantly older (three years is enough), let him/her decide whether they want to be matchy-matchy with their younger sibling. Maybe they don’t and actually have an opinion about it.

I actually loved it when my mom dressed us alike. It was rare that she did though. My sister was 3yrs older and not very fond of having me join the family so I liked anything that appeared to unite us.

Her girls are adorable. My sister and I dressed a like when we’re very young ,We liked it but we only wore matching outfits sometimes. My mom stopped when I was able about 8 and she was 6.

Love this! Here in the south, it’s very common to dress your children in matching/coordinating outfits.

Love it, and Honor is so completely adorable!!!!

@Jen DC I totally agree! I too am an older sister that HATED when my mother would dress me and my younger sister alike! I vowed to never do that to my children! The younger sibling probably likes it because they get to feel older, but it’s a nightmare for the older child who gets picked on for looking like their baby sister/brother. Please give your child their own identity even if they are twins!

Jen, I’m with you. Both my sister and I hated it when our mom would dress us alike…as if we were twins seperated by 3 years. >.< My mom frequently dressed us in cute little matching dresses, and cute matching outfits. Over half of our wardrobe always matched. As we grew older, we enjoyed sharing clothes with eachother, but never have we dressed the same again!

Why go to all the trouble of dressing the girls alike and then not even bother to comb their hair? Honor is not a cute girl AT ALL and her unkempt hair doesn’t help. Why, why won’t Hollywood people groom their children? It drives me batty!!!

I have two daughters ages 5 and 8 months, pretty close in age with Jessica Alba’s girls and my older daughter loves dressing like her little sister. While I do dress them a like on occasion, it doesn’t happen all the time. I’m glad that my older daughter enjoys it – she is very proud of her baby sister and talks about her to whomever will listen to her. Not every pair of siblings hate dressing alike, and Honor seems to enjoy dressing like Haven.

Shes a beauty!! Congrats!

Reesca- “Not every pair of siblings hate dressing alike, and Honor seems to enjoy dressing like Haven.” Exactly! My personal opinion when it comes to dressing siblings alike is to let them choose. If they both want to, go for it! If they don’t, then don’t.

Also, in regards to older children getting picked on for looking like their younger siblings, the answer is simple: Teach your kids not to pick on other kids (whether it be for dressing like their younger sib, having an unusual name, having a different skin color, or what have you)!

This is why bullying is getting worse: Everyone treats the symptoms rather than the disease itself!

My mom dressed my sister and I in matching or coordinated outfits for years. She used to sew a lot of our clothes when we were babies.
When my girls were young, Carters always had coordinating clothes, so you could mix and match outfits. I was able to dress the girls to look similar but not matching exactly. and my younger two went through the coordinated period, where one would wear blue and the other a different color of an outfit for about a year. nothing wrong with it.

joan on

to pleasegroomyourchildren – WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU talking about. Honor’s hair is brushed in both pics, and the one on the left isn’t that flattering, but honor is a very cute kid. GROW UP!

Callie on

Love siblings that dress alike or coordinate. My girls are two years apart and so far love it. I know plenty of friends kids that dress alike too and they don’t mind it either. My girls are good friends and like dressing the same!

Steph on

I am so disappointed in Jessica Alba and her company Honest ‘whatever’. They are trying to prevent Honest Toddler (a fantastically funny blog by a mom) from using the word HONEST Toddler as her blog title etc. (like her celebrity company should own the word HONEST)! She is using her money and celebrity power, in court, because she and her people think that it cheapens her brand of overpriced stuff that I will now never buy. Her kids are cute and they look happy, but maybe it’s at the expense of the everyday people who are also working hard for a living.

They must have changed the pic, bc I don’t see where Honor’s hair isn’t groomed.

“Also, in regards to older children getting picked on for looking like their younger siblings, the answer is simple: Teach your kids not to pick on other kids (whether it be for dressing like their younger sib, having an unusual name, having a different skin color, or what have you)”

AMEN!!!! It starts with the parents and by the way I see some on here, I get why kids are so rude and bully. It’s amazing how people see a picture of a child and can say, as Pleasegroomyourchildren said “honor is not cute girl AT ALL.” Really? Great example for your children.

I buy my kids matching pajamas for an awwwwcute moment, but I let them pick their own clothes each day, and never once have they chosen to be matching or coordinating. I loved that my mom let me dress myself (even though I sometimes looked silly), and I want to do the same for my littles.
