Family night!

Catherine Zeta-Jones bonded with daughter Carys, 15, and son Dylan, 18 — her children with husband Michael Douglas, 74 — at the Wales’ National Day Gala in New York City on Friday.

The Academy Award-winning actress, 49, and her lookalike daughter both opted for color-coordinating dark red gowns for the evening.

Zeta-Jones wore an off-the-shoulder velvet dress, which featured a dramatic thigh-high slit and a romantic floral design around the center of the neckline. Finishing the outfit, the actress paired her gown with matching heels and subtle jewelry. Carys also wore an off-the-shoulder dress, which went all the way down to the floor and was covered in dark red flowers.

Meanwhile, the star’s son, who also bears a striking resemblance to his famous parents, looked dapper in a classic suit.

Wales’ National Day, which falls on March 1, is the feast date of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales. At the event, Zeta-Jones, who was born and raised in Wales in the U.K., received an honorary degree from The Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama.

The outing comes a couple months after Zeta-Jones and Carys stepped out during the Michael Kors NYFW show last September. A few days before the pair’s mother-daughter date, Town & Country honored Carys at its 50 Modern Swans party, which her parents also attended.

Carys and Zeta-Jones appeared on the cover of the magazine’s Modern Swans & Living Legends issue for September.

“Fashion has been so important in my life, because my mom is like a fashion icon to me,” Carys told Town & Country. “I’m always looking through her closet.”

The Chicago star returned the compliment and commended her daughter’s style as well.

“She’s modern but age-appropriate,” said Zeta-Jones. “I’ve never had to turn to Carys and say, ‘I think that’s a little inappropriate.’ Once she said, ‘Mom, I really like this romper.’ I went, ‘Mmm, but don’t you think it’s cut a little too long? Shouldn’t it be shorter?’ She went, ‘Mom, you’re the only mother in the world that would tell a 15-year-old girl that the romper should be shorter.’ ”
