Young Croatian woman has over 720,000 Instagram followers just for looking like Kim Kardashian
Looking like a celebrity might be a nuisance for some, but not for Jelena Peric, a young makeup artist from Croatia who's gone to great lengths to look like Kim Kardashian! In fact, she looks so much like the celebrity that she has followers asking her where Kanye and her baby are in all her photos!
If you go to her Instagram, which is at https://www.instagram.com/j_make_up/, you will understand why so many people mistake her for the real Kim Kardashian. She even dresses like her! Jelena is a true doppelgänger, and because she just so happens to look so much like the star, she has fans all over the world. And on top of that, Jelena also happens to be a very talented makeup artist who has her own YouTube channel, where she's put up a tutorial on how to look like Kim Kardashian. The video has been watched over and over again, mostly by Kim's fans who aspire to look like her as well. As crazy as it is, what's even crazier about this whole thing is that it's a reminder of Kim Kardashian's popularity and just how obsessed her fans are - they'll even follow someone on social media just because she looks like her!
“I neither said that I looked like her, in any aspect, nor did I think so, but hey, if people like to say that, what can I do? I’m definitely not trying to be someone else like some mean people are trying to say,” says Jelena. "I am often compared to Kardashian. It is a big compliment, but sometimes it can be really boring."
