OK don’t tell me you haven’t noticed there are some celebs who look eerily alike almost to the point of passing for identical twins but have supposedly no blood relation at all. So I’m going to spend the next couple of blogs highlighting these freaky doppelgängers.
First ones I HAVE to choose are Katy Perry and Zooey Deschanel.
These two look so much alike I swear they were separated at birth! Both sing, both have huge blue eyes and black hair, and both love the vintage pin-up style. hmm Zooey admits to the eery similarity. She was interviewed by MTV “The only similarity that we have is that we look a little bit alike,” she laughed. “I have met her before. She seems like a nice person. I’m happy that she’s famous enough now that she’s not going out and being mistaken for me.” I found a rare pic of the two together at an event and a comparison shot

This amazing African American and Korean model blew onto the scene a couple of years ago and is on her way to bringing the Supermodel back! Not only has she walked the runway for the world’s top designers such as Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Givenchy, etc… She also managed to become an Angel for Victoria’s Secrets without being busty or voluptuous! All that and she just turned 20! No wonder her name is Chanel! Her mom must have known she was destined fro the catwalk!
Georgia May Jagger has become an IT girl in her own right and now, with her gap tooth smile, has graced many a runway even Chanel. It was no surprise she recieved the award for model of the year at the British Fashion Awards!
Of course, she has stirred up some contraversity with racy jean ads and a banded mascara ad which is probably why we love her so. A elegant punk with a rocker edge. Ok, the mascara contraversy was the fault of Rimmel but her model skills still make her a model of today and an accurate vision of young adults today. Even Karl lagerfield was qouted as saying exactly that! And who could blame him right?
I absolutely adore this stunning plus size rocker. She represents divas everywhere with her cool and effortless style. She is so fierce she recently opened the spring 2011 Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show! Talk about on fire! She also designs for british clothing store Evans and fronts the band The Gossip.
Janelle Monae is a rare gem. She combines jazz, r&b and electronic pop all with old Hollywood glam. Her style mixes gentlemen’s tuxedos with feminine bottoms. She usually prefers to wear only black and white; a tough color combo to constantly get right every time you wear it. She also usually wears a pompadour hairstyle. Download “Tightrope” and “Cold War”
Another Firey Red Head I absolutely adore! Emilie Autumn is a violinist that used to play for Courtney Love’s Hole band. She has been on her own now for years and her music can be described as classical meets New Age meets Goth. Her voice echoes over her violin riffs and haunts you long after you turn off the music. She has an amazing and unique fashion sense, kinda like Nightmare Before Christmas meets Corpse Bride meets Alice In Wonderland (Tim Burton). She designs and makes all her clothes. Stunning corsets and yards and yards of tulle and fabric for her skirts. Download “Gothic Lolita” and “Dead Is The New Alive”.
I loooove Amy Lee! She has an amazing ethereal voice and is the front woman for Evanescence. Her style is edgy with gothic and 18th century influences and she makes a lot of her stage clothing. She prefers to keep her skin stunningly pale and her hair ebony black,. She wears corsets and long voluminous skirts. Although the band has lost its founding members leaving Amy as the sole current founding member I still think the band can make great music as Amy herself is a songwriter. She is currently working on a new album. Download “My Immortal” and “Together Again”.
Haley Williams is a sassy little red headed spit fire who front’s the alternative rock band Paramore. Hayley started singing at the age of 16 and continues to churn out heavy power ballads mixed with a pop punk tinge at age 21. Her style is punk with a hint of girly sweet. Download “All We Know” and “The Only Exception”.

The Wondergirls are a Korean pop group that burst onto the scene a couple of years ago but just last year they started touring the US with Backstreet Boys.The group consists of 5 girls and has a rapper. Their style is fun, funky and sweet. They have now released an English language album called “Two Different Tears”. download the awesome r&b pop single “So Hot” and the bouncy sweet “Nobody”.
I love Kerli! Her fashion style is Lolita Goth. And its believed that Lady Gaga copied her style! She even said so herself. Her voice is very powerful and hauntingly beautiful at the same time. She loves tutus, sky high mary janes and mini top hats. I love the fact that she is so blond and pretty but her music is dark and edgy. The contrast is striking! Of, course her music is also a striking contrast of punk and rock. Download “Walking on air” and “Tea Party” to listen to her music on itunes.com.
