Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas's 15-year-old daughter is feted at fashion week party

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Michael Douglas‘s daughter, Carys Douglas, is probably going to be famous (it’s in her blood, after all) — but she just got one step closer to celebrity status.

While most high schoolers were at home Sunday night, the 15-year-old daughter of the Hollywood actors was being honored at an event thrown by Town & Country magazine. The cocktail party, timed with New York Fashion Week and hosted by designer Michael Kors, celebrated the publication’s annual list of swans (a term coined by Truman Capote to describe his inner circle of beautiful, rich, and stylish female friends), and Carys, an aspiring actress, was the teen of the hour, having landed the magazine cover (her first ever) alongside her famous mom.

Throughout the glamorous night, 48-year-old Zeta-Jones was by her daughter’s side. And while Carys is basically her mother’s mini-me, the two stepped out in decidedly different outfits for the event, which was widely documented.

Making the night out even more of a family affair was Michael joining the ladies, who have been stepping out a lot together in the last year, often to fashion events.

Carys’s famous father (or her “grandfather,” as she said bullies called him) pulled an adorably goofy dad move at the party by reading the issue featuring his favorite ladies in the middle of the party.

Carys also rubbed elbows with the other “swans,” the most famous being Sailor Brinkley Cook, the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit model daughter of Christie Brinkley.

In Carys’s Town & Countrycover story, she made no bones about wanting to follow her parents into acting. “When I was younger I didn’t like the idea of having this name attached to me, this kind of ‘Douglas dynasty’ stuff,” she said. “I think what bothers me the most is that people think I don’t work hard for it, that I don’t need to work hard for it. That anything I do gets handed to me. When, honestly, I feel like it’s the opposite. I feel I need to constantly prove myself to people — that I am not just my parents’ daughter.”

Douglas also talked about being stalked by paparazzi when she was in the first grade and dealing with intrusive tabloid stories about her family — just two things she’ll most likely have to continue to deal with as her star continues to rise.
