8 Times Celebrity Mother-Daughter Duos Wore Nearly the Same Outfit

Some say it’s inevitable: We all end up a lot like our mothers. Whether due to nurture or nature, it’s hard not to unconsciously pick up a few habits formed by the most important women in our lives. And the most blatant proof is when we step out of the house in an outfit that look an awfully lot like something Mom would wear. It’s not just us—celebrities do it, too. And we have proof.

With Mother’s Day on the brain (it’s this Sunday, for those who still need a brunch reservation) we found some of the most high-profile cases of when mothers and daughters dressed almost identical. And the most surprising part is that 20, 30, even 40 years separate the matching ensembles. If you think the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, allow us to convince you otherwise with the celebrity mother-daughter duos ahead.

Tina Knowles Lawson is the OG stylist, costume designer, and #1 supporter of her daughter, Beyoncé, not to mention an inspiration in her own right. But turns out, not even she is immune to the star power...

Flower dresses, in the '90s? Perhaps not groundbreaking, but absolutely charming nonetheless.
