“You’re just like your mother.” Many women meet such a comparison with dread, but for those lucky enough to have ultra-stylish mums, it’s a compliment of the highest order. Who wouldn’t want to learn the art of getting dressed from an icon like Kate Moss, Jane Birkin, or Jerry Hall? Having good taste is a birthright for their respective daughters Lila Grace, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Lou Doillon, and Georgia May Jagger, so it comes as no surprise that many of these girls have become fashion darlings in their own right. In honor of Mother’s Day this Sunday, we rounded up twenty of our favorite mother-daughter pairs. From the quintessentially French Roitfelds to the pinup-worthy Dellal clan to the edgy power duo that is Lisa Bonet and Zoë Kravitz, there’s plenty of multigenerational inspiration here.
However you sketch it, 2011 was a blockbuster year for novelty prints. The illustrated craze kicked off with Prada’s chimps and stayed strong with Riccardo Tisci’s fierce Rottweilers and sleek jaguars prowling the street-style blogs. Designers have continued to ratchet up the kitsch factor with their latest collections. Dolce & Gabbana sent looks plucked fresh from an Italian garden down the runway in September, while Miuccia Prada stamped her fifties-inspired clothes for Spring with vintage cars. Recently, we’ve noticed a cartoon trend on the rise. Andrea Dellal wore a comic strip sheath to Art Basel, and Phillip Lim’s pre-fall lineup featured pieces with phrases like “KA-BAM!” pulled from graphic novels.

Unretouched celebrity photos have become so rare, they’re marketable (see Marie Claire‘s May Jessica Simpson cover: “The Real Jessica: No makeup, No retouching, No regrets!”). But before PhotoShop helped celebrities look as good as inhumanly possible, a great portrait was the product of lighting, makeup, and a skilled photographer. Johnny Rozsa, who’s been immortalizing household names over the past three decades for publications like Vogue and The Face, collected 115 unfiltered, never-before-seen photos of stars before they hit super-fame—and, not to mention, before many of them went under the knife—into a retrospective coffee-table book, Untouched. There’s Catherine Zeta-Jones—back when she was just a beautiful Welsh girl—posing with her tracheotomy scar prominently displayed. And a younger, curvier Halle Barry in a beret, cheekily mooning the camera. Arnold Schwarzenegger makes an appearance, too, pulling a practically adolescent Andrea Dellal into a beefy embrace (pictured). Untouched is on sale at Barneys, and Rosza is celebrating the book’s release with a solo exhibition that opens today at Christopher Henry Gallery in Chinatown.
Untouched runs until November 28, 127 Elizabeth St., NYC, (212) 244-6004.
