Heidi Klum twins with lookalike daughter Leni, 17, in glittering gowns

Leni Klum is quite literally walking in her supermodel mum Heidi's footsteps.

The 17-year-old took to the catwalk for luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana's 'Alta Moda' show in Venice, Italy over the weekend.

For her sashay down the runway, Leni sported a turquoise strapless mini dress that featured a puff hem as well as a chunky coloured gem necklace and a sparkling crown.

The night before the show, Heidi, 48, and her lookalike daughter twinned in near-identical glittering silver gowns while walking the red carpet at a fancy dinner.

Where Heidi's embellished dress — no doubt by Dolce & Gabbana — was strapless and grazed the floor, Leni's was a leg-baring mini dress with wide shoulder straps.

Both women took to their respective Instagram accounts to share snaps of the glam event, with Leni captioning hers, "Matching with mommy."

"You look just like her," wrote one of her followers in the comments.

Also joining the mother-daughter duo was Heidi's husband, Tokio Hotel guitarist Tom Kaulitz who she wed in February 2019 after just over a year of dating.

Leni recently opened up about following her mum into the modelling world when she posed for the cover of Glamour magazine 20 years after Heidi did the exact same thing.

"I always wanted to do what my mum does. I always wanted to be a model," she said. "During the shoot, I thought the whole time about how crazy and surreal it is, that I'm actually exactly where she was 20 years ago."

Leni's birth father is Italian businessman Flavio Briatore who had a brief relationship with her mum, Heidi, in 2003 right before she got together with singer Seal.

Seal was present at Leni's birth and in 2009, he legally adopted Leni and she changed her last name to Samuel. After Heidi and Seal split in 2012, Leni reverted to using the last name Klum.
