The high school student, who is also daughter to Michael Douglas, opened up about her biggest style inspiration – her mother. “Fashion has been so important to my life, because my mom is like a fashion icon to me,” she said inside of the publication. “I’m always looking through her closet.” She continued: “She has this one thing, and it’s absolutely crazy. It’s this pink kimonoey coat, but it has this fur and these fringes. It’s just so cool.”

While Carys has her eyes on the Cocaine Godmother star ‘s fashions, Catherine promises her daughter’s style is her own. “She has her own individual style,” she said. “She’s modern but age-appropriate. I’ve never had to turn to Carys and say, ‘I think that’s a little inappropriate.’” Carys is not only inspired by her mother’s sense of style, but her profession. The budding star admits that she didn’t always feel happy when it came to being attached to her famous parents.

“When I was younger I didn’t like the idea of having this name attached, this kind of ‘Douglas Dynasty’ stuff. 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,” she said. “That anything I do gets handed to me. When honestly, I feel I need to constantly prove myself to people – that I am not just my parents’ daughter.”
