It’s in the genes! Marcia Cross said during a Friday appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that her own understated style has been adopted by 2 ½-year-old twin daughters Eden and Savannah.

Calling herself “a terrible dresser” when left to fend for herself — “everything you see [me in] is made up from somebody else,” she explains — Marcia was hoping the lack of fashion sense would be limited to mom, only.

“I thought maybe these girls will have a little something going on,” she explains. “So I was like, ‘Whatever you want to wear…'”

While the girls opted not to dress themselves alike, they also opted not to dress themselves with much pizzazz! Says Marcia,

“I have one who will only wear navy blue from head to toe — that’s Savannah, who we call Savvy. Socks, underwear, leggings, shirt and navy blue ties in her hair. Eden will only wear a green shirt and black pants. It looks like I’m a really boring dresser and now I dress my kids that way, but truthfully it was [their] choice!”

Eden and Savannah are Marcia’s children with husband Tom Mahoney.
