Courteney Cox has shared a side-by-side photograph of herself and her daughter wearing the same dress 21 years apart.

On Tuesday, the Friends actor posted the image of herself and 14-year-old daughter Coco Arquette wearing the same outfit to Instagram.

“I’m not one to hold onto things but this was a damn good purchase! 21 years later...,” Cox wrote.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

From 15p €0.18 $0.18 USD 0.27 a day, more exclusives, analysis and extras.

The vintage garment is a sheer purple dress that is adorned with embroidered flowers and velvet trim straps.

Cox originally wore the outfit to the 1998 premier of Snake Eyes on 30 July, which she attended with Coco's father David Arquette.

Arquette was the sartorial scene-stealer that night though, wearing a bright shirt, matching hat and PVC paperboy cap.   

The side-by-side photograph of Cox and her daughter caught the attention of several of the actor’s famous friends, including Friends co-star Lisa Kudrow who wrote: “Oh wow…”

Other followers of the actor were quick to point out how passing down the dress was something her Friends character, Monica Geller, would have done.

“This is such a Monica thing to do,” one person wrote. 

Another commented: “You literally have a hoarding room like Monica.”

Last year, Cox opened up about the challenges of raising a teenage daughter, admitting that while the two sometimes argue, they love each other dearly. 

“I want her to tell me everything, and she doesn’t want to tell me anything,” Cox told People. “Exactly the opposite of the childhood I had.”

“We bicker, let’s be honest, but we love each other,” the actress said. “We laugh a lot, for sure.”

Coco added: “I would also describe it as, well, I am a 13-year-old girl, you are a mum, so I love you, but of course we’re gonna get in fights. 

“But we’re very close. Very close. I love you a lot."
