Jason Priestley's daughter took inspiration from Kelly Taylor for her school's '90s-themed dance. The little girl looked stunning and like the younger version of Taylor.


Jason Priestley is pleasing to the eye, but his little girl, Ava Priestley, is even more appealing than her father. The actor rose to fame when he starred as "Brandon Walsh" on the ‘90s hit show "Beverly Hills, 90210;" a role he had for a decade.


The show also featured Jennie Garth who played "Kelly Taylor," and Ava is a fan of her character. Over the weekend, the little girl had the ‘90s-themed dance at her middle school and decided to dress up as Taylor.

Priestley's wife, Naomi, took to Instagram to gush about her daughter's look and choice, and the proud mother revealed that her 11-year-old is obsessed with "90210" since she started watching some old DVDs of the show.

Describing it as coming full circle, the makeup artist equally wrote that the world is colliding as she could not contain her excitement. Little Ava wore a tee-shirt with the name of the show printed on it in a circle.


Naomi parted her blonde hair to the side, and the middle-schooler wore red lipstick and eyeshadow that made her eyes pop. The mother-of-two revealed that she used a Beverly Hills eyeshadow palette from Sola Look, and accompanied the post with a series of hashtags.

Ava rocked the look so well that some of her mother's followers commented "Your daughter has an amazing taste" and "Wow, a beautiful little Taylor Kelly."

Tori Spelling, who also starred on the show with Garth and Priestley as "Donna Martin" equally loved the look and described it as "Iconic."


The term also rightly describes Priestley's time on television. The Canadian-born actor had his first TV role on "Airwolf" in 1987, after which he had a guest role on "21 Jump Street."

In 2016, in recognition of his contributions to television, he got a star on the Canadian Walk of Fame. The 49-year-old loves rock music and his favorite band "Barenaked Ladies" is a Canadian group formed in the ‘80s.

The father-of-two took up car racing as a hobby, and he participates in it as a professional racer and a commentator.


The “Private Eye” actor outside his family is close to his former castmates from "90210," and he shared a special bond with the late Luke Perry. At the latter's death, he described him as a star and an incredibly bright light who got extinguished too soon.

Priestley will reprise his role in the reboot of the show, as well as Garth and Spelling, and most of their original cast mates.
