Lily Collins is showering her famous father, Phil Collins, with love on his 72nd birthday.

Earlier this week, the Emily in Paris star took to social media to pen a sweet tribute to her rockstar dad.

Alongside a series of photos of her dad striking various poses throughout the years paired with a shot of herself rocking a very similar look, she wrote: "Like father, like daughter.

"Happy birthday, dad. Thank you for being a constant inspiration, constant laugh, and constant legend. I love you so much and am celebrating you big time today!"

The first photo shows Phil sitting in a bathtub wearing a white button-up shirt and charcoal slacks. Recreating the image in the second slide, Lily leans on the tub's inner wall while dressed in a sapphire gown.

The second snap of her father was taken at the 2000 Golden Globes and showed Phil holding the award he won for Best Original Song in honour of his hit from the original Tarzan soundtrack, 'You'll Be in My Heart.' While his daughter doesn't have a Golden Globe, for her recreation she rocked an all-black tuxedo, slicked-back hair and a glam face of makeup.

Phil was sporting a blue leather jacket in the third snap, which was taken sometime in the 1970s. Lily matched his energy by wearing a similar style of overcoat in a screenshot she shared from a clip of her role in the 2013 movie, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.

The album concluded with an undated snap of the musician resting on a couch wearing overalls, a maroon shirt and a brown leather sling bag, and his daughter mimicking the look by wearing denim overalls and a sunhat while on the beach.

Like father, like daughter, indeed.
