Glam mum, 46, and daughter, 17, constantly mistaken for sisters

·3-min read

A glamorous mum and daughter duo are often confused to be sisters by strangers when they are out and about.

Cathy, 46, from Hertford, says she loves to look her best wherever she goes out and people tend to think she’s her daughter's sister and not her parent.

Jaggar Arganese, 17, says she takes inspiration from her mum and says they are like “best friends”.

"If we are out shopping together in London people will say to us that we look more like sisters rather than mum and daughter,” Jaggar said.

"They're shocked when they realise that she is actually my mum. But I love it because my mum looks amazing.

"Apart from the colour of our hair, we look really similar and we also have a really similar sense of fashion so I think that makes us look even more like a sister because we are usually wearing the same style of clothing.

"She has always taught me the importance of looking my best and we come from quite a glamorous family so it's not really a shock that people think this when they see us together."

Cathy says that she is a 46-year-old woman in a 20-year-old's body and loves feeling younger.

"While I am comfortable being my age and I am still quite a traditional mum to Jagger and my two sons, I do like looking young and modern. I like to think I am still 20,” she said.

"Jaggar and I love to look glam whenever we go out. We always have our hair and makeup done and we are always in nice outfits so we do get a lot of stares when we are out together.

"People have actually even compared us to the Kardashians which made us laugh.

"We love to look good because it makes us feel good. We have an amazing relationship. We are best friends and we love to spend time together.”

Jaggar, a makeup artist, says that she would hate to have an old fashioned and 'granny-like' mum who wouldn't let her kids dress up and wear makeup.

"I've always loved makeup and I think it's because as my mum's only daughter she has really put all that side of her into me so I want to look my best too,” she said.

"I think it has been passed down through the family as my nan loved to look her best too and slept in rollers every night.

"My mum just doesn't seem to age and I really hope I get the genes from her too so I can look as amazing as her as I get older.

"My friends always mention how pretty and stylish my mum is too.

"And my brothers get annoyed at their friends because they always make comments about my mum to wind them up."
