Like (fabulous) mother, like (fabulous) daughter!

On Tuesday, Beyoncé was joined by her daughter Blue Ivy as the pair stole the show in their matching black and silver ensembles at The Lion King premiere in Hollywood.

The singer, who lends her voice to the role of Nala in the live-action remake of the Disney classic, made her rare red carpet appearance at the Dolby Theater, wearing a custom Alexander McQueen tuxedo dress.

To accessorize her blinged-out look, Beyoncé, 37, added a pair of matching strappy heels, Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, a diamond-encrusted clutch, and kept her hair in a sleek ponytail of cornrows braids with tiny curls slicked to the side of her head.

As for her mini-me, Blue matched her superstar mom in a tuxedo dress of her own which was also McQueen. The 7-year-old’s black jacket was embellished with silver sequins while the bottom of her dress looked identical to Beyoncé’s with sparkly black tulle.

Like her mom, Blue also wore her hair in braids but added two buns at the top of her head, which were both wrapped with silver diamond hair accessories.

Aside from her daughter, Beyoncé also had some very familiar faces show up to support her at the movie premiere.

Joining the mother-daughter duo at Tuesday’s night star-studded event was her former Destiny’s Child bandmates Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland.

Williams, 38, turned heads in a form-fitting, silver metallic dress with a pair of thin strappy heels. The star chose to keep the ankle-length gown’s high neckline as the focus of the look and did not include any jewelry or accessories.

Rowland, meanwhile, got into the spirit of the film and wore a zebra-patterned long-sleeved dress with bell sleeves.

She matched the look with a pair of Alexander Wang heels and hoop earrings, and also added a few rings.

The photo of the Lemonade singer has her in an epic stare-down with her character in the film, Nala. Donald Glover also participates in a face to face standoff with his character, Simba, the protagonist of the film.

A second trio, including Keegan Michael-Key, Florence Kasumba, and Eric Andre, also take deep stares into Kamari, Shenzi, and Azizi, their Disney counterparts.
