Mrs. Doubtfire hit theaters 20 years ago Sunday, and the classic comedy seems more relevant than ever. Just this week, a 7-year-old girl saved her mother's life, claiming she learned the Heimlich maneuver from watching the movie.

Earlier this year, Robin Williams pointed out that the floral frock Kim Kardashian wore to the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala was reminiscent of one he sported in the film. In fact, Mrs. Doubtfire's sartorial influence can be seen on several of today's stars. Here are some other examples we discovered.

Alexa Chung's preppy shirtdress looks an awful lot like Mrs. Doubtfire's sensible skirt.

Sarah Jessica Parker gives old Euphegenia's look an au courant update with a fluorescent cardigan. Carrie Bradshaw would approve.

Taylor Swift and the self-described "hip old granny" likely have more than a few common interests, and they also share an affinity for pastels.

So, tell us, who wore each look better?
