Cape Town - The internet thinks it’s found Gisele Bündchen’s doppelgänger – and we see why!

Paula La Croix (16), from Brazil, has been dubbed Bündchen Jnr by social media users who are in awe of her uncanny resemblance to the supermodel.

Not only does the youngster have the same nationality, wavy hair and giant almond-shaped eyes as the 37-year-old, she also shares her athletic frame.

The 16-year-old, who started her modelling career just two years ago, boasts more than 258 000 followers on Instagram and already has her own fanbase.

A scout who’d spotted her at a modelling workshop was the first to compare her with the Victoria Secret model, Yahoo Lifestyle reports. Since then the teenager has been intent on pursuing a modelling career.

“I was always interested in fashion,” Paula says. “It was clear to me that I had to try! From that point on it’s become my passion.”

She recently appeared in the Grinko show at Milan Fashion Week and hopes to work with major fashion brands like Gucci and Victoria’s Secret.

Paula, who’s committed to finishing school despite her booming career, says she fully embraces her resemblance to the supermodel, reports Daily Mail.

“Of course I’m inspired by her – she’s one of my big inspirations due to her resilience and confidence.”

“However, I want to create my own path – my aim is to be myself and pursue my own career. But I don’t compare myself to her, as we’re both unique.”
