The Fenty by Rihanna frenzy has no signs of slowing down, and makeup tutorials galore have been popping up all over YouTube to show how the products work. Beauty influencer Patrick Starrr recently got aboard that train, and while the focus was on the brand’s holiday cosmetics collection, people were more interested in his model and how she looked like Rihanna’s long-lost twin.

At the start of Starrr’s video, we see his model Andele Lara with the completed look — wearing the same makeup, half-up hair, and lilac ensemble Rihanna wore at her London launch event for Fenty Beauty. Throughout the video, we are walked step-by-step through getting the Rihanna-inspired look, with product details and tips on techniques.

But even after watching the video’s near-16 minutes, it’s hard to get past Lara’s stunning resemblance to RiRi.

It didn’t go unnoticed by fans, who left a flurry of comments showing just how convinced they were. “The resemblance is uncanny,” one person called out. Another hilariously noted, “she’s GOTTA be RiRi’s twin sister. if i was her, i’d get my background checked.”

And this actually isn’t the first time the Rihanna dead ringer has mimicked the “Wild Thoughts” singer. A few weeks back, she appeared on Harry wearing a celebrity-look-for-less version of a recent Rihanna look. She’s legit a spitting image of the star.


In 2015, Lara posed on a red carpet wearing a re-creation of one of Rihanna’s most talked-about Met Gala looks, featuring a yellow gown with a dramatically long train. If you squint your eyes and glance quickly, it’s hard not to be starstruck. Rihanna, is that you?
