It’s not hard to establish the familial ties between celebrity siblings like Beyoncé and Solange or Gigi and Bella Hadid. But what really piques our interest are the famous pairs that don’t share bloodlines, but somehow look as though they’re from the same gene pool. And when they are separated by entire generations… well, we just can’t stop staring.
Vintage Hollywood glamour makes for some of the best photography on its own, but combine it with modern-day doppelgängers, and we’re more than satisfied. If you’re a sucker for look-alike moments like us, take a look back at some of the most uncanny resemblances between stars of yesteryear (or stars of today in their younger years) and the A-listers making their mark today.
Madonna & Sky Ferreira
The 25-year-old singer and actress reminds us of Madonna during her bleached-hair-with-dark-roots “Like a Virgin” phase.
Audrey Hepburn & Lily Collins
Whether or not the 29-year-old has bangs, Lily Collins definitely shares the same facial features as the iconic Breakfast at Tiffany’s actress.
Carla Bruni & Bella Hadid
Both models share those same hard-to-miss, sky-high cheekbones.
Dorothy Dandridge & Halle Berry
Berry’s uncanny resemblance to Dandridge (and superb acting skills) led to her award-winning role in a TV biopic about the Carmen Jones actress back in 1999.
Helen Mirren & Jennifer Lawrence
These two look like long-lost sisters born in two different eras.
Donna Summer & Kelly Rowland
We’re just waiting for the Destiny’s Child singer to be cast in a biopic about this legendary disco-era songstress.
Nina Simone & Michaela Coel
We’re also holding on tight for a Nina Simone biopic starring the hilarious Chewing Gum star.
Raquel Welch & Minka Kelly
From the long brown hair to the big almond-shaped eyes, these actresses could definitely pass as sisters.
Sophia Loren & Sofia Vergara
They share the same name and, apparently, the same face, too. We can barely tell them apart!
Tammi Terrell & Taraji P. Henson
The late Motown singer and Empire star look like long-lost twin sisters.
