Worlds Collide: Taylor Swift Met Her Australian Doppelgänger
We love a good celebrity dopplegänger (remember Kendall Jenner's uncanny resemblance to her Internet twin?). And while we thought there was no way there could be room for two Taylor Swifts in this world, turns out there's a girl living down under who bears an undeniable resemblance to the singer. Her name is Olivia Sturgiss, a 19-year-old Aussie who's got the whole red lip, blond bob, complete Taylor Swift-esque look going for her, along with more than 10,000 Instagram followers who seem to agree.
On Friday night, Swift and Sturgiss actually met at—where else?— a Taylor Swift concert in Melbourne. According to Sturgiss's friend Kristy, Swift had noticed her lookalike on Tumblr when she posted about her mother's cancer diagnosis, which was actually the same week that Swift announced her own mother's diagnosis. The world is a crazy place, huh? But it's a true testament to Swift's kindness that she would take the time to meet with someone who has a lot more in common with the teen than we could have imagined.
Sturgiss told the Daily Mail Australia that even without a full face of makeup on, she still gets mistaken for the songstress: "I think it's just the facial structure. I've got small eyes and bigger lips like her," she explains. There's no denying that identical red pout however, which Sturgiss said she had to wear because she was at a Swift concert, of course! We personally recommend Mac Lipstick ($17) in Lady Danger for a total Swift-worthy crimson lip.
Do you think these two look alike? Sound off below!
