The mob wife aesthetic is all the rage these days, and has been adopted by everyone from Chrissy Teigen to Khloe Kardashian. Meanwhile, SI Swimsuit star Emily DiDonato recently pointed out that she long ago perfected the look, which incorporates lots of black, leather and gold jewelry. 

“It is always such a surreal moment when I’m looking for inspiration on Pinterest and I stumble upon myself,” DiDonato stated in a recent TikTok. “Mob wife aesthetic has taken over my For You Page, and I was looking for inspiration for mob wife makeup, and I stumbled across this shoot of me, and I feel like this is the mob wife I wanna be.”

On the screen behind the 32-year-old mom of two were black-and-white pics of DiDonato from a 2015 issue of Porter magazine, captured by photographer Alique.

“Also the makeup, like this is perfection, I’m definitely gonna to try to recreate this,” she commented of the moody and dark look.

DiDonato then showed off a similar aesthetic from prior modeling work, this time from a spread in Vogue Spain from the publication’s October 2014 issue. Plenty of the New York native’s 569,500 TikTok followers chimed in to the comments section to comment on DiDonato’s findings.

“It’d be so fun to see you play with a ‘grungier’ aesthetic!” one fan noted. “Think I had pics from that Spain shoot on my Pinterest in 2014 😅.”

“The hair!!! I love the mob wife hair,” someone else chimed.

“How iconic omg,” another user stated.
