If you are Madonna, Demi Moore, Joan Allen or Andie MacDowell, chances are they’re standing on the step-and-repeat next to you. These days, famous moms have been hitting the party circuit with unlikely arm candy: their daughters.

Indeed, you can forget all about matchy-matchy floral Laura Ashley ensembles — these duos give a new meaning to the term “mini-me.” Witness 10-year-old Lily Sheen’s black frock, which is every bit as dressed-up as the LBD that mum Kate Beckinsale wore to the New York premiere of “Everybody’s Fine.” And Madonna and Lourdes Leon arrived hand in hand wearing Dolce & Gabbana at the recent “Nine” screening in New York City.
In some cases, it’s hard to tell who is the more seasoned red-carpet walker of the duo — just take a look at Tallulah Willis, Sadie Friedman and Sophie Curtis.
