Catherine Zeta-Jones and daughter make rare appearance together at NYC fashion event

Catherine Zeta-Jones and her teen daughter share a mutual love of fashion. That’s what brought the pretty pair together on Sunday night — a girls’ night out in NYC for the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda fashion show at the Metropolitan Opera.

The fresh-faced Carys Douglas looked like a younger version of her actress mama — with a splash of Michael Douglas — right down to her strappy toesies as she sat side by side with her mother. The teen, who turns 15 on April 20, clutched her phone and made sure to document the show on Instagram. Ya know — Instagram or it didn’t happen.


Their arrival was documented as well. After they posed for photographers, they walked up the red staircase holding hands, guided all the way by a handler. Carys had on an off-the-shoulder top along with skinny black pants, while her mom wore a black lace dress. They both had on strappy black sandals. Mom clearly had a spray tan.


The women have attended other fashion events before — and are on the same page when it comes to fashion. Catherine has even said she’s OK with Carys sneaking a short skirt by her famous Fatal Attraction star dad, 73.

“I said to her once, ‘Why aren’t you wearing that gorgeous little corduroy, vintage-looking skirt [to school]?’” Zeta-Jones, 48, told Yahoo Lifestyle in January. “She goes, ‘I packed it, because dad’s taking me to the train station.’ You know the deal: Dad’s taking her to the train station. She’s got her leggings on and then, when she gets to her friend’s house, she whips on the little mini. And Daddy’s none the wiser. I went, ‘I love you for that. … Good call.’ The less they know, the better it is.”

Zeta-Jones added that Carys really “has a good sense of style,” and “to her dad’s delight, doesn’t overdo the bod.”

The Cocaine Godmother actress has said several times that both her children, including 17-year-old son Dylan, are interested in pursuing careers in showbiz. It’s in their genes.

“A lot of people say to me, ‘How do you feel about that?’ and I say, ‘Well, they’re good,’” Zeta-Jones told Yahoo. “I mean, I’d be the first to say, ‘We need to change direction,’ and kind of steer them towards another occupation, but they’re good. And they love the craft of acting. They respect it. They know what it takes. They know the odds. They know the issues of being the daughter of, the son of, the granddaughter of, the grandson of … but they have it in their belly. And once it’s in your belly, it’s hard to get out of it.”

Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana is showing couture for the first time ever at numerous  NYC locations. During the weekend, Sarah Jessica Parker attended the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Gioielleria exhibition at the New York Public Library. Nick Jonas was among the attendees at the Dolce & Gabbana Alta Sartoria fashion show in the Rainbow Room at Rockefeller Center.
