Like mother, like daughter.

Rhiannon McCarty and Adrienne McCarty of Hamburg Township are quite the mother-daughter duo. Not only were both honored as Brightest and Best students 21 years apart, but they also share the same taste in fashion.

This year for prom, Adrienne decided to sport the dress her mom wore to prom in 1996. 

"She had saved it for me all these years so that I could wear it to my senior prom like she did for hers, so that was just another cool thing that we got to do that was the same," said Adrienne at WXYZ's Brightest and Best event today. 

Adrienne says her mom was also a big reason she fought to be top of her class. 

"One of the reasons that I wanted to get the valedictorian status so badly was so that I could be like her, because she's such inspiration to me," she said. 

The love the pair shares for each other is truly hard to miss.  

"We are just so proud of our daughter," said Rhiannon.
