It's not every day that you get to shop in the closet of a princess — unless, of course, you happen to be that princess's mother. For Royal Ascot, Carole borrowed the cute bubblegum-pink dress by ME + EM from her daughter, the Duchess of Cambridge, who initially wore it for a visit with Mila Sneddon, a 5-year-old girl with leukemia.

The purple floral dress Coco borrowed from her mom's closet may officially be classified as "vintage" (Courteney first wore it to the 1998 premiere of Snake Eyes), but on the 14 year old, it looks brand-new. "I'm not one to hold onto things but this was a damn good purchase! 21 years later…" Courteney wrote on Instagram.

Iron Mom! The actress found a creative way to ensure that her 7-year-old son Xavier's Halloween costume gets plenty of wear, though she acknowledged that he might not be as into the solution as she is. "I'm super into the fact that I can now share clothes with my kid. He may not feel the same," she wrote on Instagram. "OR.. maybe he's wearing some Versace leggings as I speak at you..?"

Though the New York Real Housewife has been accused of stealing dresses in the past, daughter Avery, 23, actually took this out of her mom's closet: "Thanks @ramonasinger for the outfit" she wrote on Instagram.

If Sarah Palin's appearance on SNL 40 gave you déja vu, it's not because Tina Fey was there too. It's because she repurposed this sequin white mini dress her 24-year-old daughter wore in 2011.
