With Mother's Day just around the corner (hint: it's Sunday 14th May), we're predicting these mother-daughter duos will be spending their special day together in style.
It appears true the old adage, 'like-mother-like-daughter' totally rings true here. From sporting the same hairstyle, following in their footsteps or collaborating on projects, these genetically-blessed duos have us feeling inspired to show our own mums a little extra love this year. While she may not be a fully immersed 'momager' a la Kris Kardashian, she sure does run a lap and a half around the world for us.
These six mother-daughter duos that show us that no bond can be too strong, and no doubt will be planning something extra spesh for next weekend.
1. Kaia Gerber and Cindy Crawford
There's never been more evidence of like-mother-like-daughter than Cindy Crawford’s 15-year-old daughter, Kaia, who has taken root in the modelling world. As the new face of Marc Jacobs Beauty, and featuring in ads for Miu Miu and Alexander Wang, it goes without saying Kaia has already made her mark in the fashion industry - just like her supermodel-status mum. Despite her success, Crawford’s main aim as a mother is to teach her daughter life lessons of the industry. Her advice for this rising beauty comes more from that of a mother than a supermodel. We predict Cindy and Kaia will engage in a full-on catwalk showdown this Mother's Day, Mexican stand-off style. But who will win...
2. Michelle and Sasha and Malia Obama
The Obama’s are indeed a family of grace and generosity, and the Obama daughters have certainly taken in their mother’s lead. Michelle is known for her charitable stance, including her Let’s Move! initiative that aims to boycott childhood obesity. With such inspirational parents, it’s no doubt these young girls have the genes for greatness! Sweet in every sense of the word, we reckon Sasha and Malia will spoil their mama with breakfast in bed, accompanied by the front page headlines of the paper.
3. Lisa Bonet and Zoe Kravitz
Lisa Bonet, best known for her role on The Cosby Show, is mother to Zoe Kravitz (with ex-husband and four-time Grammy award-winner Lenny Kravitz). It's no wonder Zoe has harnessed the talent of both parents, and is now living in the limelight as an actress, singer and model. This mother and daughter powerhouse show that style runs in the family as they both often sport their signature braids. I mean, seriously, they look like twins! But what's on the agenda for this Mother's Day? Perhaps an improvisation class to really get their creative juices going?!
4. Kris Jenner and Kim Kardashian
Because what’s the point in listing iconic mother and daughter duos without mentioning the Kardashians? We know you saw this one coming. Yes, Kris does have four other daughters, but the sweet spot she holds for her darling, princess Kimmy, is plain as day. This powerful pair are fashion queens, drama queens and just queens in general. Kris is her daughters' self-appointed ‘momager’, which most of us would find painfully annoying, yet she seems to own her constant nagging in a way that makes us just love her. We can almost guarantee Kim will snap a selfie with mama Kris (filter included) this Mother's Day.
5. Sharon and Kelly Osborne
The bold, brash and totally British, Sharon and Kelly were a part of the original reality TV family, long before KUWTK came along. Yes we admit it, we count The Osbournes as one of our many guilty pleasures when it comes to TV shows. The mother-daughter duo rode the fame wave and now noted in Hollywood as TV hosts, reality-competition judges and fashionistas in their own right - plus we can’t flaw the bond these two strong, independent women maintain. If their TV show was anything to go by, the pair will likely share a cup of English breakfast tea, and maybe a barney if Sharon doesn't get the present she wants.
6. Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer
Easily our favourite author, one who consistently delivers books that are scarily relatable, Jodi Picoult, has teamed up with her daughter, Samantha. In 2012, the pair collaborated on an adult novel named Between the Lines. As expected, the book was a hit, and has even inspired us to join forces with our own mothers this Mother’s Day - mother and daughter cake making? Sounds slightly more achievable! What's the plan for this Mother's Day you ask? A trip to the library would be far too predictable, would it?!
Have a happy Mother's Day!
