Like mother, like daughter! Sarah Palin took a short cut when it came to choosing an outfit for the Sunday, Feb. 15 Saturday Night Live 40th Anniversary Show — by heading into daughter Bristol Palin's closet!

Palin, 51, arrived at New York's Studio 8H wearing a glittering white minidress and a pair of black high heels. But eagle-eyed fashion commentators soon noticed that the politician's outfit was not a new purchase — in fact her daughter Bristol, 24, had worn the exact same dress to the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner in 2011!

"I'm wearing all Bristol!" the excited mom told Us Weekly at the SNL 40th Anniversary party. "Everything I have, I borrowed from Bristol. Her [bag], her dress. It's something left over from Dancing With the Stars, but her shoes, she made me give her a deposit before I wore her shoes!"

"She was like, 'Mom, these are like red soles and you don't mess with them unless you're on the red carpet, otherwise you pay for them!'" she added, laughing.

Despite channeling her daughter's fashion style, Palin held her own when she contributed to an SNL sketch during the anniversary show, as part of a Q&A session hosted by Jerry Seinfeld.

During the sketch, Palin asked Seinfeld how much the show would pay her to run for President, since it would provide them with so much material.

"No figure is too high, Sarah," Seinfeld replied.

"What if I were to choose Donald Trump as my running mate?" she replied.

"Sarah you're teasing us, that's not nice!" replied Seinfeld.

Palin has been a long-time contributor to the hit late-night comedy sketch show. Tina Fey had a hugely popular skit in which she impersonated the politician during her vice presidential campaign alongside John McCain in 2008, which culminated in a cameo from the woman herself.

"I really respect her work ethic and her capitalization of the opportunity," Palin told Us of now admiring Fey's impersonations of her. "I do a double-take whenever I see a rerun or a picture of her, really."

Tell Us: What do you think of Palin recycling her daughter's outfit on the show? And (more importantly!) who wore it best?
