Anyone who keeps tabs on Taylor Swift knows that the songstress has quite the star-studded cast of girlfriends. Among others, there’s her ultimate BFF Selena Gomez, her little sister figure Lorde, and a big group of goof-around buddies, including Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, and Lena Dunham. We were initially surprised to see her add almost the entire roster of Victoria’s Secret Angels to her posse, but now Taylor’s been spotted with Cara Delevingne more than once… and it looks like she’s been taking some kind of witches’ brew to slowly become an identical clone of Karlie Kloss.
We weren’t really aware of Taylor and Karlie’s friendship until they Instagrammed the hell out of a road trip they took in matching turtlenecks, and even though that seemed like a weird publicity stunt at the time, the two similar-looking blondes have now made quite the habit of dressing alike. For reference, before their public friendship, they each looked like this.
But years later, through the mysterious and mystical powers of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, we noticed that the two of them looked a little bit similar.
They apparently noticed, too, and they started to hit it off. Which led to their road trip Instagram binge (that could easily pass for engagement photos), through which we discovered even more similarities. Which one is even which?
Thinking we’d seen the last of it, we got a bit of a shock earlier this month– the two of them were spotted in New York City together, easily passing for sisters.
And then Taylor put a selfie on her Instagram page that could, like, absolutely be a picture of Karlie. To a disturbing degree.
Which brings us to last night, when the leggy duo stepped out to show the world that the transformation is officially complete.
What’s going on here? Is Taylor taking so many styling tips from her fashion mogul pal that she’s starting to become Karlie? Were the two of them separated at birth? Maybe everyone’s criticism of Taylor’s “crazy” persona has been just a tiny bit off, and she’s not nuts for writing about her feelings, she’s nuts in a Single White Female way. Maybe we’re trapped in a sci-fi movie and they’ll soon cease to exist as individual humans and become one perfect composite specimen. Maybe they’re just friends who happen to have similar body types, coloring, and facial features. Either way, I’m equal parts terrified and lovin’ it.
