Dear Miss Devoted,
With Mother’s Day on this weekend, it’s that time of the year again to focus on that special bond between a mum and her little girl. For every devoted daughter, a mother is a role model, best friend, and a pillar of strength; For the mother, her daughter is her darling, and sometimes a double. You probably know many extraordinary mother-daughter pairs in real life, but here are some famous mothers who share more than gorgeous looks and inherited talent with their daughters -- they also share a storied destiny and a loads of style!
Judy Garland and Liza Minelli

Garland was a legendary entertainer and actress, and she struggled money, addiction and mental health issues throughout her life, which impacted her relationship with Minnelli. Despite their difficulties, Minnelli remained devoted to her mother and followed in her footsteps as a performer.
