We had to do a double take.
If you were watching the Olympics this weekend, you might’ve mistook French cyclist Pauline Ferrand-Prevot for K Middy. Yep, the Duchess of Cambridge and Pauline look so similar we could barely believe our eyes.
In fact, Pauline’s actually a 23-year-old cycling champion from northeast France who just happens to have the same perfectly-arched eyebrows, long lashes and delicate, ladylike lips as Kate. Now that’s what you call good genetics.
And K Middy’s not the only one with a lookalike. Check these out…
Leonardo DiCaprio shot to fame after starring in Titanic back in the ’90s, and although it cemented his career as one of Hollywood’s leading men, his role as Jack Dawson also earned him a host of female fans. His boyish good looks won over women around the world, and he became a bona fide heart throb over night. So, you can imagine our delight when this Swedish man, who bares a striking resemblance to a young Leo, was discovered. Behold the beauty.
So here’s Leo circa 1997…
And here’s the man known as Konner, circa now…
Uncanny, isn’t it?
Kim Kardashian has a pretty ah-mazing figure, right? But she’s not the only one.
The 34-year-old actually has a body double on Keeping Up With The Kardashians – in the form of Irish model Shahira Barry. Ooh.
Shahira trained as a teacher before moving to LA to try to start a career in showbiz. After nabbing a few small roles, she got a mysterious call asking to be someone’s stand-in for a show on E!
That turned out to be Kim (how cool?!) and Shahira ended posing for test shots before the reality star filmed a promo for the new series of KUWTK. This helped photographers know what lighting and camera positions they’d need.

Shahira, 24, tells Today FM: ‘Personality-wise, they were all the same as they are on TV which is refreshing. They were all super down to earth as they are on the show.’
‘They’ve all got really good bums, all of them. Their figures are just unbelievable, Kendall [Jenner] as well. She has a supermodel figure, but she actually has a bum as well.’
Some people are just blessed, aren’t they?
Shahira isn’t the only lady who resembles a celeb.
From a Mexican Kim to a Taylor Swift lookalikey power-fan, these celebrity mini mes have got us reeling.
Let’s introduce you to Jimena Sanchez, a 30 year old TV presenter and model from Mexico, who’s making waves on social media and being hailed as the next Kim Kardashian.
She’s revealed how she really feels about being compared to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians reality star.
Speaking to the Mexican Mail, she says: ‘They don’t seem to do anything, certainly nothing you could call talent. I dedicate my life to other things, I don’t think we’re anything alike.’
Whilst she says that there may be similiarities in the way they look, the sports presenter believes that her drive and work ethic is what sets them apart. She went on to say, “I love my job and I’m good at it,” she said. “Physically we may be alike, but we aren’t similar professionally.”
Word is that Jimena is “embarrassed” of the comparison. She admits,”‘Kim doesn’t seem to do anything. My ideals are completely different than Kim Kardashian’s.”
A little (or a lot) harsh, no?
But the Mexican Kim-K does admit, “We are both popular because of our looks, and we’re both very active on social media, so it’s difficult not to draw comparisons, I just didn’t think it was going to become such a big deal’.
So. Does she want to be Kim? “She looks happy in her reality television shows, but I’m not sure I’d want to live like her.”
“We’re two people who owe everything to our looks, but there’s not many other similarities.”
Probably not, then…
The sports presenter for the Latin American division of Fox Sports has racked up over 1 million followers on Twitter and has a growing fan base on Instagram. No stranger to a selfie or two, she seems to have perfected the art of mirror pictures.
It’s no secret that the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has an instantly recognisable figure, using it to her full advantage on her missions to #BreakTheInternet and contributing to the mass desire of an hourglass shape.
Whilst Jimena’s curves aren’t quite as pronounced, she certainly boasts the right assets to rival Kimmy’s.
In the acting world, Angelina Jolie has a *seriously* impressive lookalike.
Chelsea Marr – who hails from Aberdeen – has amassed 17.2k followers since a pal sent her photos to The Lad Bible.
We can definitely see why. With those Angelina-esque full lips, dark locks and green eyes, she’s a dead ringer for the stunning actress.
And rocking THAT lip liner, she could easily be Ange circa 1998.
Now check out Megan Fox’s doppelganger! This photo of Brazilian pageant contestant Cláudia Alende is getting us way too confused.
Even Kylie Jenner has a lookalike. Gabrielle Waters is so similar to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians teen we had to do a double take.
After being told that she resembles Kylie, Gabriella started copying her look. She tells the Daily Mirror: ‘When I started dressing like her, people started stopping me in the streets and even when I went shopping in the mall.
‘I use Bare Minerals foundation, eyeshadow, fake eyelashes, some blush and whirl and one of Kylie’s signature Mac lip liners to get my lips a little bigger.’
When it comes to music, Taylor Swift came face to face with her lookalike. Well, on the world wide web anyway.
Taking to Tumblr to re-post a photo of her superfan – who just so happens to look the spitting image of the Shake It Off star – T-Swift captioned, “lol I thought that was me.”
Morgan Jensen, a 21-year-old student from Arizona, told Newsbeat: “I have been compared to Taylor Swift a lot because I’m tall like her and all it takes is sunglasses and red lipstick pretty much because we have the same hair colour.”
Standing outside her idol’s concert, she was ambushed by masses of fans and ended up spending two hours taking photos with them. But she insists she has no desire to be Taylor: “I explained to all of them, ‘I’m not Taylor’ and they were like, ‘Oh that’s alright’.”
And it’s happening in the modelling world too. Enter, Line Brems. Or should we say Cara Delevingne?
Brems was all over the runways of fashion month, walking for the likes of 3.1 Phillip Lim, Jeremy Scott, Fendi, Dolce & Gabbana and many others.
Cara-D was noticeably absent from the catwalks, making her return for the headline Chanel show in Paris. But her bushy brows and off-blonde locks were everywhere, thanks to Danish model Brems.
The 18 year old is new to the biz, having been discovered only a year ago. She told Fashionista.com, “we both have big brows and perhaps the same color hair.”
She went on, “…I am flattered at the suggestion. Who wouldn’t be? She is gorgeous.”
