22-year-old Andele Lara from Boston is blessed with a look that’s just like Rihanna’s. Andele in an interview with Daily Mail said she noticed in her sophomore year when people started commenting that she looks like the Barbadian superstar.
She looks so much like Rih that she gets mobbed by screaming fans. She is also cashing out on the look as brands are paying her to model and advertise for them.
“I know I could happily give up my part-time job and studies to have a career as a Rihanna lookalike,” Lara told the Daily Mail.
She says she’s paid $20,000 by clothing companies to endorse their products, and has also landed contracts to promote sneakers, mascara, and hair accessories with very little effort.
All that’s left is for Andele Lara to meet Rihanna in person “I would love to meet RiRi and take a selfie with her!” she gushes,
A fan once unknowingly posted an image of Lara on Instagram with the caption, “Rare pic of Rihanna,” obviously not knowing any better, and it caught Rih’s attention. She commented on it “OH?!,” causing hundreds of followers and some nasty comments to blow up Lara’s Instagram feed (which is now private). See more of her photos below:
