She has one of the most recognisable and least imitable faces in Hollywood, but there’s an Angelina Jolie lookalike that’s certainly trying her hardest to give the actress a run for her money.
Meet Mara Teigen, the 21-year-old model from the US, who has just been launched as the face (and pout) of Kylie Jenner’s new lipstick range.
While it’s doubtful that Angelina herself would ever stoop to such lengths, or indeed that she would need any form of help with enhancing the lips that God give her, Teigen is lapping up her new found fame since appearing in Jenner’s recent commercial (watch the video below).
The model, who has more than 567,000 Instagram followers, has also appeared in advertisements for Milani Cosmetics and Frankies Bikinis and dated NHL star Evander Kane.
Teigen isn’t the first model to be called the spitting image of the Maleficent star. In 2015, people obsessed over Vancouver model Veronica Black’s striking resemblance to the By the Sea actress. Also last year, Scottish model Chelsea Marr amassed tens of thousands of followers for her uncanny likeness to Jolie.
Still, judging by Jenner’s cringe lipgloss video that Teigen stars in, the Angelina doppleganger may want to invest some of that cash she takes in acting lessons if she’s ever to draw any comparisons in the world of film.
