Yup, another model mama: Rebecca Romijn and twin daughters, Dolly and Charlie, 6, take in the sunset on their family vacation. (Celebrities, they’re just like us! Except they take a lot more exotic family vacations over the holidays.)

Coco spent her first Christmas with baby Chanel by, of course, accessorizing her with — what else? — pearls.
