You ever wondered if there is someone out there who looks exactly like you? Like this person is legit your doppelganger. Come to think of it, even if there is someone out there who shares similar features how would you ever know? Because the chances of you two crossing each other’s path are as low as that of a unicorn riding a star to earth to shower people with irresistible chewy candies.
Okay not that low and maybe some of you have even met your doppelgangers but most of you out there will probably never know. Because you aren’t a celebrity. Had you been, the internet would have found your twin and forced the spotlight on that person until he or she shone like a star and you just had to acknowledge his or her existence.
Something like this has happened recently; a celebrity doppelganger has been dug out on Instagram. We’ve met Ryan Gosling’s twin, who didn’t really look a lot like him, Gigi Hadid’s as well. Ariana Grande is also among the celebs whose lookalikes have been found, exposed for the world to see and given a few minutes, or perhaps days, of fame.
This time around Rihanna’s twin has been unearthed and she looks so much like the superstar that Rihanna would have to check if it is not her from the future here to meet her. This girl’s name is Andele Lara and though she is no replacement for the actress-singer-Fenty Beauty founder, she does confusingly resemble a bit too much to the pop star.
Andele is a beauty and style blogger who has a huge fan-following on Instagram. It’s not yet clear how people just found about her; she should have been discovered long ago. But, oh well. It all started with Patrick Starr (celebrity makeup artist and famous YouTuber) posting a picture with Andele with the caption, “😏💜Any Wild Wild Thoughts on what I filming with my model @andelelara ?? Thanks @fentybeauty 😏😏😏 #patrickstarrr #fentybeauty”
Followed by the Rihanna-lookalike posting the same picture on her Instagram captioned, “Shhhhh… a surprise is coming! Stay tuned!! @patrickstarrr ✨” This, of course, led to people getting interested, stunned, and birthed lots of hype and comments with one shell-shocked user commenting, “Bruh, I thought that was Rihanna. Hold up. Everything in my life has changed,” Same here, bro.
A day ago, Andele and Starr, each posted another picture, that led to a YouTube link of Starr entirely transforming the lookalike into Rihanna. Starr’s Instagram post was captioned, “💜Loved how today’s video came out with my BadGal Hatian Barbie @andelelara !!…” Though the girl does look like Rihanna, Patrick just magically converted her into exactly Rihanna.
Lara’s picture’s caption read, “It’s Me! @patrickstarrr DIDDDDD DHATTTT BOOOO!!! Head over to his page and check out our tutorial where he turns me into a HAITIAN BARBIE using @fentybeauty Galaxy Palette and the lovely @ynotkeeb on my hair!!! 🇭🇹 (P.S. first time wearing contacts (@desioeyes) and I was scared as shit lmao but they literally felt like my own eyes! SUPER comfortable!) —� link in bio 👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾👸🏾 🇭🇹 🇭🇹”
It’s not like Anadele Lara is unaware of her resemblance with Rihanna as her blog’s (Grow and Glow) About Me page reads, “I’ve never had a career of being a “Rihanna Look Alike” – Yes, there is a little resemblance to Rihanna but NO; I am NOT a Rihanna lookalike. During an interview in 2014 I mentioned I would consider being a lookalike. This set off an online firestorm and I received hundreds of hate mail and negativity. Oh to be young and naive. We all make mistakes right?”
