Mothers of Style

Continuing my celebration of mothers, I couldn't resist posting a few photos of these wonderfully stylish women and their beautiful children. Enjoy.

Catherine Deneuve & son, 1963

Romy Schneider & son David

Jane Birkin & daughter Kate Barry

Princess Diana & Prince William

Whilst compiling this post I realized that there is a great poignancy to some of these photographs, as more than one of the lives portrayed above has sadly ended in tragedy.  I like to think however that thanks to these lasting images we can still celebrate and share in their legacy of motherly love.
