If we are being honest, we know that all of the Kardashian/Jenner sisters pretty much look like the same person, give or take 15 years. Every family photo is like a blob of big black hair and painted faces and very tight clothes. And typically, the women of the family (so all of them except Rob) wear an expression that is likely supposed to be sensual, but comes off as cold, as if they are trying too hard to look sexy.
Of the five sisters in the family, there are two that really stand out for having several “twin moments”. Kim Kardashian, 36, and her younger half-sister Kylie Jenner, 19, look startlingly similar, and people have begun to notice, creating countless side-by-sides of the two. Obviously, Kim is nearly twice Kylie’s age, but you would never know it by looking at the following photos.
Kim and Kylie are quite obviously sisters, but while the older is married with two children and settled in her life, Kylie is just getting started with adulthood, rebellious yet following in Kim’s footsteps by sexing it up whenever possible. The proof is in her 5,000 Instagram selfies and other highly suggestive photos. At 19, Kylie looks closer to 30. And at 36, Kim retains a fresh glow and could pass for 30, as well. Perhaps because Kim is approaching middle age and trying to stay young, and Kylie having newfound freedom in adulthood and wanting to look older, it is easier to understand how two sisters born nearly 17 years apart (technically, Kim is old enough to be her mother) could almost pass for twins.
Here are 15 photos that prove Kim Kardashian has a clone, and her name is Kylie Jenner.
13 Mirror Image Mash-Up
To begin, this mash-up of the two sisters’ faces perfectly illustrates my point that they are doppelgangers. Though their skin tone is not a perfect match, everything else, for the most part, is. First, notice that the hairlines on their foreheads are the same. Their eyes are identical in shape and color, and as an added bonus, their mascara matches up, as well. Further down, both noses are indistinguishable from each other (besides the skin tone). Even their hair is the same hue of jet black. The biggest difference between the two is the shape and color of their lips, although even the lips are not far off mark. So, can you tell who is who? Kim, on the left, has a slightly narrower face, and a softer jaw line. And Kylie, on the right, has brighter skin and her eyes are just the tiniest bit wider. For two people nearly 20 years apart in age, though, this is very impressive.
12 Side-by-Side Selfies
Those Kardashians and Jenners sure love their selfies. Selfies can be fun (if vain), but this family has thousands each posted to social media, and in them they always look perfect. It is unrealistic since no one looks that good all the time. In this side-by-side, Kim and Kylie look like the same person. If it weren’t for the background, you would think without examining the photo too closely that it was the same person and the same picture, just zoomed out on the right. Both sisters wear all black, dark makeup save for a more natural peachy tone of lipstick, and cleavage that is somehow identical in its perkiness (I have never heard of identical cleavage, myself, but the proof is in the photos). The two even hold their phones the same way, stand the same way, and look into the camera with the same exact pouty expression. Close family members often share similar body language and posture, and that is true for Kim and Kylie. Since they were not raised together due to their age difference, it must be in the gene pool from the only parent they share, their mother, Kris Jenner.
11 Hourglass Figures
Not only do these dead-ringer sisters share almost identical facial features, but their bodies have the same shape, too. Kim is known for her curves (more specifically her butt) and she loves to flaunt it in photo shoots and with her tight outfit choices. That rear end has made her a lot of money over the years. She is quite petite, standing at just five feet and three inches tall. The voluptuous socialite weighs a tiny 120 pounds but has an impressive hourglass figure that is very womanly. Meanwhile, Kylie stands three inches taller than her sister and is thus heavier. Both have great bodies, but generally Kim’s is regarded as curvy and Kylie's as having a slim frame. Yet somehow, here they stand, side by side. Again in the same stance as each other, their bodies look to be the same size and shape. Their faces are again very alike and wearing the same expression. Their bodies wear the same waist trimmer, making them look like twins despite the different hair colors and perceived body types.
12. Kardashians Go Blonde
I am of the opinion that all Kardashians and Jenners should stick to what they know best (dark hair), but that being said, Kim and Kylie don’t look so horrible as blondes. They do, however, look just as alike with blonde hair as they do with brown or black hair. Both sisters at one time or another have experimented with lighter hair colors, Kylie doing so more liberally with blue at one point. Here, they both go very light, almost bleach or white-blonde, which does not suit them, but that is neither here nor there. Their coloring is more similar in these photos than it is in most that we see, and as always, they don the dark eye makeup and lighter pink lipstick. Wearing natural shades of whatever it is they are wearing (a turtleneck cutoff sweater that shows underboob? A corset?), Kim and Kylie once again prove that they look more alike than any other pairing of the five famous sisters.
11. Suggestive Sisters
Even though it is clear who is who in this picture (or in case it’s not, Kylie on top, Kim on the bottom), still the photo requires more than a quick glance to be sure. Dressed identically in open button-up shirts with nothing underneath, Kim and Kylie never stray from having to be sexy in every single photo shoot, ever. From their matching clothing (or lack thereof) to their matching little smirks, to their feminine makeup, to their tousled black tresses falling at equal lengths to their upper arms, the two look more like twins here than in most photos, and that is saying something because this family is addicted to modeling, selfies, and having their photos taken. There are millions of examples out there, and while Kim and Kylie always look similar in photos, be it a personal pic snapped on their phone or the most glamorous of photo shoots, here you really must do a double take because they are more identical than usual.
10 Another Uppity Selfie
The Kardashian/Jenner clan could teach the art of the selfie. Even though they are ridiculous just for the sheer number of selfies they take, one must admit that they have the art form down to a tee. Always looking exceptional in every selfie ever, these two are no different. Both taken in elegant settings (yes, one is a bathroom but it is a damn elegant-looking bathroom), Kim and Kylie pose the same way, and hold their phone and tilt their head at the exact same angle as each other. Their differing jawlines are apparent here, and Kylie is much more made-up than Kim, but that is where the differences end. Everything else about the women and their selfies is practically identical down to their heather gray shirts and the cavalier attitude their faces, while undeniably beautiful, betray. They are uppity sorts of photos, but then again, can we expect anything less from the princesses of reality television?
9 Fish Faces
Whoever decided that fish lips were attractive, anyway? That is probably the number one thing serious selfie-people do, and the Kardashians and Jenners are the biggest culprits. Maybe it started off as blowing a kiss or something. But in any case, here both sisters do the fish face, although Kylie looks like she could be blowing out candles on a birthday cake. Never the matter; whatever she is doing, there are plenty of other times she has posed doing the The Lips, especially since her lips are a hot topic nowadays and everyone wants them. In these photos, the sisters’ high cheekbones, chocolate eyes, shaped brows, strawberry pink lips, and shiny obsidian-colored hair are all perfectly in sync with the other. In fact, the most noticeable difference between Kim and Kylie is that Kim is a lot bronzer than Kylie, whose skin looks creamy and pretty in this photo.
8 Damsels in Disguise
Perhaps they are damsels in distress from being followed by incessant paparazzi and are hiding their eyes behind big sunglasses? Maybe, although they are probably used to it by now. After all, Keeping Up with the Kardashians has been on for an impressive nine years now. Kylie was thrust into the spotlight when she was just 10 years old. Unlike Kim, who was 27 when the show began, Kylie essentially grew up on television. So maybe these shades were just for a sunny day, but either way they make both Kim and Kylie resemble one another even more than normal. Some of their features hidden by the designer shades, in these lookalike photos we have only their coordinating black turtlenecks, black jackets, black sunglasses, black hair, and the parts of them that are not “blacked out” to go off of. Both have their eyebrows not filled in, are wearing little if any makeup (a rarity among Kardashian folk), and don’t look too happy. Taken at a lower angle, these two images bear a striking resemblance to one another. The difference that stands out the most are Kylie’s injected lips.
7 Identical Half-Sisters
It is hard to believe these two are not even full sisters looking at photos such as this Instagram selfie they took in 2015. Posing with their heads leaned against each other and looking as posh and chic as ever, it is amazing that they truly are just half-sisters (Kim’s father is the late Robert Kardashian who was famous for representing O.J. Simpson in his murder trial, and Kylie’s father is Bruce Jenner, now known as Caitlyn Jenner). They are even both wearing the same designer clothing. Both in bodycon jersey wear, Kylie wows in a bright red ensemble, a backwards baseball cap, and a white Moschino bag slung over her shoulder. Kim loves neutral colors and chose this light brown shade and did little to her hair, as did her sister. Making those pouty kissy faces that have become representative of the Kardashian selfie, the girls, as always, are the picture of perfection.
6 Dazzling in Black
Two beauties in black, Kylie and Kim have practically the same wardrobe as well as practically the same face. Obviously, these two photos were not taken at the same time, but when put next to each other, it is crazy how much two women who are not twins can look alike. Having a very similar outfit on helps, as does them both wearing their hair down and straight, and the same shades of makeup. Here, Kim’s curves stand out as one difference between the two, as Kylie appears taller and leaner, which she is. But that is how it should be; after all, Kim is a grown woman who has carried and delivered two children, while Kylie is technically still a teenaged girl. But no matter their age, both sisters dazzle in black. Dark colors work for them, as opposed to lighter colors and lighter hair.
5 Luscious in Lingerie
Kim and Kylie show some skin in this selfie where they appear to be lying in bed. It is difficult to discern exactly what they are wearing, but it is not much, and is probably lingerie. It is every man’s fantasy: two gorgeous sisters in bed together wearing their unmentionables! In this instance, it is Kylie’s lips again that really set them apart. They stand out even in solo photos of her. So when she is next to her virtual twin, they really pop because everything else about their faces is the same. I have seen worse lip injection results, but Kylie would look better without them. She copies Kim a lot in terms of clothing and behavior (she even copied her nude photos!), so she should take a lesson from her big sis about this, too, and get rid of the big lips. Without them, this is just one more photo in which she would look exactly like the big sister she tries so hard to emulate.
4 Witchy, Mismatched Eyes
This is an interesting side-by-side of Kim and Kylie, because they somehow still look like twin sisters despite the fact that the photos have completely different filters, both women are wearing different colored contact lenses, and their makeup is not done in the same hues. Additionally, things that usually make them look even more alike than they already do (if that is possible) are not in play here; they are not dressed alike, the backgrounds do not match, and their hair is different lengths. But in spite of all of the above, anyone would know these two are related. The shapes of their faces, eyebrows, eyes, noses, and even their lips since Kylie is puckering them up more than Kim, are all perfect imitations of each other. Even though Kim is wearing bright blue-hued contact lenses and Kylie is wearing witchy green ones, they are totes twinsies (gag). Both look a little bewitching with these eyes, one of the only times we have seen them with an eye color other than their natural brown.
3 Keeping Up with Kylie
In a pic snapped at an event in 2015, Kardashian matriarch Kris, Kylie, Kim, and their sister Khloe (not pictured) hosted a lavish dinner for a preview of their upcoming apps being launched. Dining at Nobu Malibu, the women of course all resembled one another, but Kim and Kylie especially did. Just as there are tons of examples of the two sisters having “twin moments”, so are there examples of Kim and her mother having the same. However, the age gap between them is much more than 17 years, so it is Kim and her mother’s youngest daughter that share the most physical features. Kim was accused of trying to “keep up with” Kylie in this photo, as she was very pregnant with her second child but refusing to give up her style in towering heels and a skin-tight gold two-piece ensemble. The truth is that you do not even notice her baby belly unless you really look since she is sitting down, and therefore the difference between her and the skinny Kylie remains, for the most part, hidden.
2 Dressing Room Selfies
Blonde again (and it still not working for either of them), Kylie and Kim both look to be in dressing rooms. Of course they are taking selfies, because selfies are imperative if you have Kardashian/Jenner blood flowing through your veins. Though Kim’s hair is shorter and wavy and Kylie’s is long and straight, their faces still look almost the same as each other. Both make that same pouty, serious selfie face they always make, the one that is identical when they both do it, like in these photos. It doesn’t even matter that they wear outfits that are nowhere near similar; that is how closely their facial features and expressions match. For once, Kylie even looks shapelier than Kim does, which is usually not the case, and she is not even wearing one of the waist trimmers both she and Kim posted selfies with (see number 13 on this list for that treat). It would be impossible with that outfit, so maybe she is filling out a bit like her big sis. She can’t stay a scrawny teen forever, after all.
1 Face Swap
Any face swap at all is bound to be funny, but this could be the least funny face swap ever, because Kim and Kylie look so much alike to begin with that while the swap is noticeable, it is not that crazy-looking. They do each look better with their own face; I will say that. Case in point, the two photos above. The twinsies look far prettier in their selfie by the water than they do wearing each other’s faces. But even having swapped features using the goofy app, Kim and Kylie have such strongly similar facial characteristics that the swap is funny in an entirely different way. Having matching brows, eyes, noses, and lips (everything except face shape, essentially) makes swapping faces only obvious, amusing, and/or disturbing because of their respective angles from the camera. This is the only reason two very similar faces would look odd on the other’s body, if you think about it.
