Since 2010, Instagram has swiftly become to perfect platform for women with modelling aspirations to launch their careers and if they can attract enough followers, posts can bring in some serious money from sponsors and advertising. And although becoming a viral Instagram modelling sensation isn’t easy, it can be a little less difficult when you bear a striking resemblance like a well-known famous face. These are our top ten Instagram models that look exactly like celebrities.
10. Rose Nicholas (Taylor Swift look a like)
Unsurprisingly for someone who reportedly makes £10,000 a month as a Taylor Swift lookalike, the resemblance between this British Instagram star and the ‘I Knew You Were Trouble’ singer is uncanny. Although she claims to have used her looks to pay her university fees, she struggles to shake off fans clamouring for selfies.
9. Jacky Vasquez (Ariana Grande look a like)
When it comes to cases of mistaken identity, Ariana Grande would certainly have one less problem without Jacky Vasquez. Ms. Vasquez shares Ariana’s cute, petite looks and chic style but probably can’t hit those high notes quite as sweetly. Despite her large Instagram following, Jacky is keen not to expand her fame further, tweeting that she “likes my life how it is”.
8. Cindy Kimberly (Irina Shayk look a like)
Although only one of these women has dated Cristiano Ronaldo and Bradley Cooper, you’d be forgiven for wondering which one. Russian model Irina Shayk is no stranger to Instagram herself but doppelganger Cindy Kimberly isn’t struggling for admirers either with 1.5 million followers on the photo sharing site and seemingly limitless potential. All thanks to Justin Bieber.
7. Mara Teigen (Angelina Jolie look a like)
Since starting her modelling career in 2013, Mara Teigen has achieved considerable success and the fact she’s a dead ringer for Tomb Raider actress Angelina Jolie, often considered one of the world’s most beautiful women, can’t have hurt. With over 600,000 followers, Teigen is a wanted woman and recently appeared in a commercial for Kylie Jenner cosmetic products.
6. Chelsea Marr (Angelina Jolie look a like)
If you thought Mara Teigen and Angelina Jolie could have been separated at birth, wait until you see Scottish beauty Chelsea Marr. Even Brad Pitt himself would struggle to tell these two apart in the same room, although frankly, he’d probably be too delighted to care. Despite going viral, Marr has had magnificent success as a professional in the energy industry.
5. Francesca Brown (Katy Perry look a like)
The dark horse of our list, Francesca Brown‘s aspirations lie more in acting and presenting than in becoming a bona fide Instagram model and she’s gone on record stating that her resemblance to ‘California Girls’ singer Katy Perry has at times hindered her career. You can see Brown in films such as ‘Breathe’ and ‘Do Not Disturb’.
4. Andele Lara (Rihanna look a like)
Like most of our entries, Andele Lara is partial to a bikini selfie now and again and has found love on Instagram with over 70,000 followers. The Boston born stunner earns thousands thanks to her resemblance to one of the world’s biggest popstars, although has also spoken out about being stalked by fans of the singer.
3. Val Mercado (Kylie Jenner look a like)
People who wonder why Kylie Jenner is famous will be even more confused when they find out about Val Mercado who became an Instagram celebrity due to her resemblance to the Kardashian sibling. Val takes the Jenner comparison further than just appearances with numerous revealing selfies and over a million people keeping up with her on the social network.
2. Demi Rose (Kylie Jenner look a like)
Arguably even closer in looks to Kylie than Val Mercado is British model Demi Rose. Previously linked romantically with rapper Tyga, Demi Rose specialises in lingerie modelling and is known for playing up her resemblance to Miss. Jenner on social media with some suspiciously similar snaps.
1. Claudia Alende (Megan Fox look a like )
Brazilian born model and businesswoman Claudia Alende looks more like Megan Fox than Megan Fox does. Much to the delight of fans of the actress, Alende previously competed in 2014’s “Miss Bumbum” competition in her native country, finishing in second place. She has since transformed into an international celebrity.
