Ava Phillippe’s style game is like something out of a grungy bubble gum pink fantasy.

As for her famous mum Reese Witherspoon? Let’s just say it’s worlds away from famous, California-cool, preppy looks. 

WATCH: Reese Witherspoon and Ava Phillippe star in mother-daughter photoshoot

Ava is daughter to one of the nineties biggest couples – Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe, which may not mean much today, but back then, they were big news and splashed across every magazine.

The iconic child has now grown up to become a whole person of her own, and she may look like the perfect amalgamation of her mum, but her style sets them apart.

Ava is like the Gen Z Kate Moss to Reese’s 50s southern charm.

Time will reveal if Ava chooses to follow her mums acting footsteps, but at the moment, she is a sophomore at UC Berkeley. There is no telling what route she’ll take, but considering she’s shared the red carpet with her mum before, it’s clear she’s not shy about life in the public eye.

She may be best known for her changing hair colour, which has been all sorts of shades from pastel pink, fuchsia to rainbow streaks.

But we think her style needs more attention because she is ready to let go and break style rules to express herself.

Ava also has a keen interest in photography, which she uses to capture her looks in artistically charged and aesthetically captivating ways.

Here are some of Ava’s coolest fashion moments:

When Ava wore Chanel to this glam fashion event, she proved her event style was quite different from her street style – it leans into more classic cuts than her daring punk looks

Even so, this is such a pretty look, and we hope she planned her lip colour to match the background.

This is the look that SCREAMS Kate Moss in the 90s, and we are obsessed with her styling choices here. Her attitude in this picture proves she knows this look is IT!

Ava wore this little sparkly number for New Years, and we can’t help but point out that this look reminds us of Elle Woods from Legally Blonde.

Ava’s top here is super on-trend, and pairing it without a bra makes it feel fresh. However, it’s the hair that stopped us in our tracks because it is reminiscent of her namesake, Hollywood royalty Ava Gardner.

Okay, this isn’t quite a fashion look; it is a costume. But, hear us out! Take away the wings, and you would totally wear this out. This look also speaks to Ava’s artistic style, allowing her to work with colours in exciting ways.

Whoa! That wig! There are so many lush moments in one picture, from the vintage Nirvana t-shirt to the phone case stickers, the plaid pants, and the floral background. We low-key want to see inside Ava’s brain. It is weird, but you understand.

Ava wore this look for Valentines. It is obviously made fabulous by her decision to make her hair, lips, dress and flowers one colour.

Reese may be famously connected to her southern roots, but Ava, on the other hand, is a fully-fledged California girl. Pairing a crop top with booty shorts and combat boots to a festival is a Los Angeles rite of passage.

Girl, if you do not own a little black dress, you need to stop reading and buy one!

Ava knows this staple look is glamorous and doesn’t require much effort. The small details that appear in this outfit are what makes it more interesting than at face value.

It’s the pop of red lip, the sky blue nails and the ruffles on her right sleeve, which offer some depth.
