Then: In 1992, a pre-teen Nicole Richie and her mom, Brenda Harvey, were rocking some '90s-tastic threads as they hit the slopes … well, sort of, according to Richie's caption on Instagram. "Let's break this down: A Plastic, 3D, cut out ski photo of me & my mom... In matching neon outfits. WHY. WHY. WHY. #TBT."
Richie has complained about her childhood appearance before. "Two things about my mom," she noted during an appearance on on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" in 2012. "My mom did not let me wax my eyebrows so in every picture I have the worst eyebrows ever. And she always wanted me to dress like her. So as you can see in these pictures, every picture that she has, she looks ecstatic and I look moritifed."

Now: Richie, 32, is taking family photographs that could one day embarrass her own daughter, Harlow, 6, or even her 4-year-old son, Sparrow. Of course, Harlow doesn't have to worry too much since her fashion designer mom is already somewhat of a style icon.
