We had to do a double take, but what sorcery is this?! Gisele Bündchen, one of the highest-paid models in the world and former Victoria’s Secret model, has a doppelganger. And before you go, “Okay, so what? Someone just looks like the Brazilian beauty,” JUST LOOK AT THIS UNCANNY RESEMBLANCE!
16-year old model Paula La Croix, also a Brazilian, is a spitting image of the 37-year-old industry icon, and aside from having a last name that coincidentally matches with a trendy American beverage, the teen also has Bündchen’s voluminous waves and tortoiseshell hair colour.
Boasting over 250,000 followers on Instagram, her fans have also pointed out the alikeness in their looks and just in case you’re wondering, she of course takes it as a compliment, telling Yahoo Lifestyle, “Being compared to Gisele is an honour, she is simply amazing.”
“Of course I am inspired by her — she is one of my big inspirations due to her resilience and confidence. However, I want to create my own path!” she so gracefully added. “My aim is to be myself and pursue my own career. But I do not compare myself to her, as we are both unique.”
We’re calling it – La Croix will be the up-and-coming model to watch out for, and Bündchen better watch out before someone else takes her crown!
