A popular Dubai-based beauty blogger has everyone on Instagram doing double takes, and it’s not just because she is pretty.
Her name is Sonia Ali, and this 24-year-old is a dead ringer for the ever popular Kim Kardashian, the 38-year-old entrepreneur and media personality. Perhaps even more unbelievable is that Sonia’s sister, Fyza, even bears a striking resemblance to Kim’s sister, Kylie Jenner. Sonia was born in London, England, but she is now based out of Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Although Sonia and her sister are not actually a part of the very famous Kardashian/Jenner clan, Sonia looks so much like Kim K that she regularly leaves everyone confused! It is hard to believe that they are not related.
If you’re looking for tips on how to contour or find foundation for dry skin, just ask this makeup artist and beauty and lifestyle blogger. After all, she has picked up 1 million followers on Instagram with the help of sister Fyza. The pair is constantly showing off beauty looks, talking about fashion, and even posting how-to videos about makeup.
Their posts are always loaded with Instagram users commenting on their likeness to Kim and Kylie, so it is clear that their resemblance has played into their fame. But the sisters claim that they do not copy the Kardashians on purpose.
“We always get told we’re Kardashian wannabes, but this is how we have always looked,” Fyza said during an interview.
They do say that they understand why they are so frequently confused for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars, though. I mean, how could they not see their resemblance to the famous sisters?
Sonia admits that she is mistaken for Kim K by people on the street a lot, especially when she is shopping or at an airport. However, she says that it happens mostly when she is visiting the U.S. and not at home in Dubai.
Where the sisters currently reside in the Middle East, “every single woman has a ‘Kardashian look.’ It’s very common,” Sonia says. She explained, “People here aren’t shocked by how we look because everyone has dark skin, dark brows, and brown eyes. Every corner you turn, everyone looks like a Kardashian.”
