Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden honored her mother, Queen Silvia, with the best throwback. At Monday’s 2018 Nobel Prize awards ceremony in Stockholm, she wore the same dress her mom wore to same event back in 1995, making for the ultimate royal re-creation.

The pink, gold, and silver Nina Ricci color-blocked ball gown, which features a huge glamorous bow at the back, looked just as striking on Monday as it did 23 years ago. At the time, the queen paired it with Queen Sofia’s tiara, according to People, which is also known as the Nine-Prong Tiara for its unique design.

For the 2018 replica, Princess Victoria wore the Connaught Tiara, which features five loops with a diamond pendant suspended in each. This hair accessory wasn’t only complementary, but sentimental as well. It’s the same one Queen Silvia wore to her first public appearance at her pre-wedding gala, before she married King Carl XVI Gustaf.

Victoria and her husband, Prince Daniel, sat behind the king and queen for the ceremony creating a beautiful optical illusion of sorts.

In addition to the royal mother-daughter duo, Prince Carl Philip and Princess Sofia were also in attendance. Sofia kept with the TBT theme wearing her wedding tiara for the special occasion—but the tiara was a little different this go-around. The princess has since swapped the emerald embellishments from her big day with pearls.
