Whatever their ages may be, there's no doubt that the women of Andie MacDowell's family are all genetically blessed.

The stunning 53-year-old brought her 16-year-old daughter Sarah Margaret Qualley as her date to the L'Oreal Legends gala in New York City tonight.

One thing is for certain: the camera loves them both.

Andie on her own: She says there isn't an age limit on beauty

The Southern star simply seemed to shimmer in her sequined, floor-length gown. Her hair, worn loose around her shoulders, was lustrous and her makeup simple.

Her daughter, who made her catwalk debut this season at the Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti show during New York Fashion Week, was equally as resplendent.

She wore a floaty, seafoam green confection that, though partially see-through, was also age-appropriate.

Andie spoke eloquently at the fete, which was held at Manhttan's Museum of Natural History, about both age and beauty.

'I love my job,' she recently told the British edition of Hello! magazine. 'The thing that I admire most about L'Oreal is that not only did they keep me, they added women that are older than I am such as Diane Keaton and Jane Fonda.'

'It's important to send the message to women that there isn't an age limit on beauty.'

That said, she also won't condemn a woman for wanting to try plastic surgery, but does offer words of caution to those who are considering going under the knife.

'I don't judge anyone for what they do. But that said I have also known people who have had it done expecting it to change them and make them happy. Cutting a bit off this or that is not going to change the way you feel inside.'

As expected, the crowd at L'Oreal's gala looked absolutely gorgeous on the outside. How they feel inside is still a mystery.
