When your mother is Carrie Fisher, you're left with some pretty big boots to fill. That's probably why Fisher's daughter, Billie Lourd, who is set to appear in Star Wars: The Force Awakens decided not to play Princess Leia's spawn, but rather pay tribute to her in another way: by rocking a strong bun game.

Fisher donned her signature double-bun within episodes IV, V, and VI, an iconic look which her 23-year-old daughter has seemingly inherited. For those of you who've been living under a Death Star shaped rock for the last 50 years (give or take), here's Princess Leia in all her bun-filled glory:

And here's our first look of Lourd's recreation of the signature double-bun:

What do you think? Does she pull it off as well as her mother? Let us know in the comments!

Alongside allowing us a glimpse at her Star Wars look, the budding actress revealed that she's always been a huge fan of the series, begging her mother to watch episodes on a weekly basis.

"I made [my mom] watch it at least once a week – and on special occasions I would make her get in a lightsaber fight with me. Let's just say the more trained Jedi usually won."

According to People Magazine, Lourd's original path seemed to take a different direction from her mother's. At age 19 she was studying religion and psychology at New York University, the same age Fisher was when she began filming the A New Hope as Princess Leia back in 1977.

'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' hits theaters December 18.
