Kendall Jenner’s supposedly unique looks have made headlines again, yet this time, it’s literally nothing to do with the 20-year-old supermodel.
Just weeks after Jenner came under fire for allegedly wearing a burqa in Dubai – when actually, the photo was taken of a woman in disguise as Kendall – the supermodel has received more media attention for looking a little bit similar to another dark-haired woman.
Her name is Kate Bogucharskaia and she’s from Pestravka, Russia. Unsurprisingly, Kate is also a professional model.
Admittedly the two women do have similarities, as you can see in this mash up of beautiful dark features.
Their high cheekbones and wide, feline eyes have earned both models appearances in Vogue.
Kendall, Kate, Kendall, Kate, Kate, Kendall…
Between the band tees, white shirts, disinterested expressions and pouting lips, I got a little confused between the two models as well.
But it’s hardly surprising that two models would look similar in shoots and selfies, considering the manufactured way in which all models present themselves and exist online.
Literally every second chick in LA is a Kendall Jenner lookalike ?

Is this woman a legitimate doppelganger or just damning proof of the homogenisation of the fashion industry and perceptions of beauty?
