Seriously, we can't tell the difference.
This is Rihanna.
And this is a woman called Andele Lara.
Dead ringer, right? Well, the similarity has not gone unnoticed by some pretty big companies too. Andele has now made around $20,000 from clothing contracts in the last 12 months alone.
In her first ever interview, the 22-year-old revealed that she is even followed by Rihanna's fans because of her likeness to the Bajan singer.
"The moment I step out anywhere, everyone starts staring and whispering before I get bombarded by strangers asking to take their photo with me. This happens every day — It doesn’t matter what I do. I can’t go twenty-four hours without hearing Rihanna's name."Andele Lara
Unsurprisingly, Anadele has amassed a pretty enviable social media following, including more than 30,000 Instagram followers.
And now she says opportunities just keep falling in her lap.
"I wouldn't really say I’ve gone out looking for opportunities, they've just come along naturally. I reckon if I put more effort, I would get even more! I've scored hair contracts as well as sneaker, mascara, hair accessories and apparel deals. I also get into clubs for free and I get a lot of free drinks too!"
