You know the saying: sisters who support one another, stay together? These celebrity sisters are great examples of this adage!
Besides being famous sisters, they are also sisters who are an inspiration because of everything they’ve achieved. Sharing the limelight with your sister may seem complicated, but the truth is that these siblings are an example that together they are even stronger.
Whether you have one sister or more, don’t forget that together you can achieve so much, and that there is nothing more special than a blood bond. Sisters have a way of motivating each other that many other bonds simply do not: that’s their secret power.
1. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
Even though they have been in front of the cameras since they were nine months old, these twin sisters managed to overcome all the obstacles and difficulties that fame sometimes represents for children and create a multi-million dollar empire. From the merchandising created around their image to their luxury brand The Row, these two fashionistas have proven that inside the competitive world of fashion and stardom, staying together has brought them great success. Their younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is also rocking it in the acting world.

3. Sasha and Malia Obama
Thanks to their famous mom and dad, this pair of sisters became well-known not because of an extravagant lifestyle, but because of the simple, family-oriented way of life they lived while their parents governed the United States.

5. Kourtney, Khloe and Kim Kardashian
This trio of sisters of Armenian descent took over American reality TV. It seems that what gave them great and decisive advantages were their profiles, which had nothing to do with famous socialites.
