Bette Midler and Her Daughter Looked Like Twins at the Met Gala

Mommy and me.

The Met Gala pink carpet got a major dose of motherly love when Bette Midler arrived with her daughter, Sophie Von Haselberg. The dynamic duo grabbed the attention of the flashbulbs thanks to their very on-theme Michael Kors Collection outfits, but maybe the real attention-grabber was the fact that the two of them look nearly identical. Swap those statement-making dresses and we're sure most of the world would be none the wiser.

With Camp as the night's theme, enlisting Midler and her daughter was a natural choice. Twitter agreed, with many users pointing out that nothing is campier than the Divine Miss M.

Many fans also noticed the resemblance between mom and daughter, and applauded The Rose herself for making the Met Gala a family affair. From the expressions to the bone structure, it was clear these two are related. The only question is why they aren't invited to the event every year.

Midler's appropriately over-the-top outfit earned its fair share of praise. Fans pointed out its similarity to her costume from Hocus Pocus, in which she played Winifred Sanderson and rocked a costume for the ages. Not to be outdone, Von Haselberg was dripping in sequins and topped off her look with a feathered headdress, something that many stars turned to tonight. The pair wore Michael Kors Collection, with Von Haselberg's outfit meant to look like an actual campfire and Midler's dress transforming her into a real-life social butterfly. Stephen Jones designed both of their headpieces.

With roles in House of Cards and Wizard of Lies, it looks like the time is right for Von Haselberg to step into her own spotlight. With a move like this, all eyes are definitely on her.
