Pat Cleveland And Daughter, Anna, Strike A Pose For Zac Posen's Resort 2014 Lookbook (PHOTOS)

Question: Is it possible to defy the laws of aging, sustain a modeling career for nearly 50 years and produce an equally gorgeous child to carry on the legacy?

Answer: Yes--you just have to be Pat Cleveland.

The 61-year-old is a fashion legend, having been one of the first black supermodels and paving the way for those who came after her--Beverly Johnson, Iman, Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks and the list goes on. And while the former Halston muse could be kicking up her feet, she's still steady striking poses for the world's top fashion designers. Pat's latest gig had her teaming up with her daughter and model, 24-year-old Anna Cleveland Von Ravenstein, for Zac Posen's Resort 2014 lookbook.

The genetically blessed duo delivered an ultra chic campaign, working the camera in Posen's '30s garden party themed collection.

“I was really proud to be shooting mother and daughter Pat and Anna Cleveland,” Posen told Fashionista.com. “It was a magic moment. It felt so iconic. I felt like we were expanding for the public the age range of how fashion is shown today. It’s a part of fashion history having Pat, and it represents the age range of the actual customer."

Check out the stunning mother-daughter duo in the slideshow below.
