Based on Gigi Hadid’s unique look and natural beauty that make her a spectacular model, nobody would think that she has an almost identical lookalike in this world. Pictured on the left is Hadid’s twin from the Netherlands, Iza Ijzerman. It makes perfect sense that the two have similar career paths, as Ijzerman is a professional plus-sized model and blogger.
The mind-boggling similarities in their appearances make it hard to look away. People on the internet were quick to point out the massive amount of resemblances that the two models possess. It is almost impossible to tell Hadid apart from her Dutch counterpart. If you scroll through Ijzerman’s Instagram, you will find that her similitude to Hadid is uncanny.

Lewis has been compared to Watson since the first Harry Potter movie was released in 2001.
Lewis works as an instructional assistant but has made her side-gig being a lookalike Watson. She cosplays Watson’s character, Hermoine, from the Harry Potter series. She noticed that people were constantly turning their heads and commenting on how much she resembles Emma Watson. Multiple conventions have actually paid Lewis to travel and play Hermoine at their events.
TikTok “Tom Cruise” Takes The World by Storm
Could you imagine walking down the street and being mistaken for one of the most handsome men alive? Multiple Tom Cruise lookalikes can relate to the above question. TikTok is responsible for introducing these strangers to the world, who just happen to resemble Tom Cruise.
The TikTok Tom Cruise impersonator, Chris Ume, is using deep fake technology to mimic the famous actor. Not only is the world being fooled by the looks of TikTok’s ability to clone the actor, but also this person is able to replicate Cruise’s famous laugh. Even though there are minor glitches with the newly-found technology, the effect is still crazy accurate.
Kate Moss or Fake Moss?
Just when we thought we were lucky enough to have one Kate Moss, we realized there were two!

Unlike many celebrities, Denise absolutely loves being photographed by the paparazzi because it boosts her confidence tremendously.
Denise has been mistaken for the unique-looking supermodel for basically her entire life. The fashion brand “Vetements” actually cast Ohnona instead of Kate Moss herself to spike views and intrigue the audience during Paris Fashion Week in 2021. Denise thought to herself “why would they want a lookalike when they can have the real thing?” But, soon after, she realized that there was an appeal for lookalikes in the world of fame.
Not many people can belly dance like Shakira, but her random lookalike is making everyone on the internet wonder if her Hips Don’t Lie as well. Rebecca Maiellano, pictured on the left, is Shakira’s so-called international double. Maiellano actually started her own show called Shakibecca Live where she shows off her Venezuelan singer-songwriter abilities.
The Shakira lookalike is making quite the living off of being mistaken as her doppelgänger. Not only does she look like the Columbian star, but her distinct voice can be mistaken for that of Shakira, too. Shakibecca pays tribute to her favorite star by singing covers of her well-known hits, and Shakira seems to support her on her journey.

The young man earned the nickname “fake Messi” after being accused of using his looks to seduce women.

Although many allegations were filed, Parastech came to social media to clear his name and deny any counts of sexual harassment.

Ever since prom night, Cadman realized she could make a small career by continuing to cosplay Swift at events. She tops off her look with a short blonde haircut, bright red lipstick, and dresses in statement pieces that Swift has been seen performing in or wearing on the red carpet. Cadman noted that she is naturally tall, blonde, and slim, which makes her a perfect twin for Taylor.
Jay From Houston or Jenny From The Block?
Jlo is definitely one of the most influential celebs of all time. She was gifted the name a “triple threat,” as her acting, singing, and dancing have all contributed to her wide success. Janice Garay, also known as Jay from Houston, may not be able to sing as Jennifer does, but she definitely looks like her. Garay went viral on Instagram after posting one of her bodybuilding selfies, and users starting questioning whether or not she was Jlo.
The pair, as seen above, share extremely similar features ranging from their facial structures to their sculpted bodies, to their blonde highlighted hair.

Williams has admitted to running down the street while she is chased by the Beyhive as they scream lyrics to Beyonce’s most beloved songs.

Moreover, Kylie fans began running up to Gabrielle in the streets mistaking her for the young billionaire.
One of Kylie’s most eye-catching features is her unmistakable “pout” that she gained from the use of lip fillers. Waters, on the other hand, revealed that she was never allowed to get any sort of plastic surgery, but she over-lines her lips to match Kylie’s signature look. When Waters was younger, she felt the need to look and dress like Kylie for Instagram photos which led to her spending over two hours on her hair and makeup every day. Eventually, she realized she resembled Kylie without all the extra work, so she decided that she did not need to try that hard.

As seen above, one of Dern’s most beloved roles is paleontologist Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park. It is quite evident that Wojciechowski absolutely nailed her recreation of the famous look. Although the main aspect of Maria’s Instagram account is her similarity to Dern, people also seem to be amused by her humorous captions, as she is a comedian after all.
Everybody’s Teenage Dream? Two Katy Perry’s!
Aspiring actress Francesca Brown cannot leave the house without being mistaken for Katy Perry.

Growing up, Brown had always dreamed of becoming an actress, but looking identical to Katy Perry has not helped her so far. Instead of being recognized for her original talent, Francesca is compared to Perry during auditions and casting events.
Francesca admitted that she knew becoming an actress would be a difficult task, but she did not realize that the most difficult bump to overcome would be looking like one of the most famous pop stars in the world. She is constantly mobbed in clubs and given bodyguards at venues to protect her. She feels bizarre living life this way, as she is not actually the famous star.

The fact that people stopped Jones on the street thinking he was Sheeran allowed him to talk to many more people and come out of his shell.
Ty and Ed actually had a chance to meet one another and Ty commented on the fact that Ed was extremely down to earth and sweet. Ty said that dedicated Ed Sheeran fans stop him on the street, usually extremely worked up and shaking, and ask for a selfie or want to shake his hand. He confesses to almost feeling guilty admitting that he is not the real Ed because he does not want to let the fans down.

Mara has earned the title of being Angelina Jolie’s younger sister. Her base of 600,000 followers keeps rising as more and more people are recognizing her uncanny resemblance to Angelina.

“The Girl From That 70s Show”

Chelsea’s small following began to rise after her similarities to Kunis were pointed out by users.

Michell commented on the idea, saying that it would be a great opportunity but it will probably never wind up happening.
