When you look this much like world-famous supermodel Gisele Bündchen, your career path is pretty much set. That's how it is for Italian-Brazilian model Paula La Croix, who is only 16 but is already kicking her modeling career into high gear.
Just take a look at her Instagram for proof: La Croix already gained over 250,000 followers who've been calling out how much she looks like a baby Gisele. It's enough to make you do a double take.
La Croix didn't quite realize the resemblence until she got signed by a modeling scout in Brazil, but now she definitely gets it. “Being compared to Gisele is an honor, she is simply amazing,” she told Yahoo Lifestyle in an interview. “I believe the comparison has only generated great things due to my attitude upon it.”
Here's a little comparison of how much La Croix and Bündchen look alike, right down to the sun-kissed mane. Can you tell them apart?
Ok, we can see why people are freaking out over this. But even though Bündchen blazed the way, La Croix wants to make her own mark. “Of course I am inspired by her — she is one of my big inspirations due to her resilience and confidence. However, I want to create my own path!” she said. “My aim is to be myself and pursue my own career. But I do not compare myself to her, as we are both unique.”
