Everyone wants to look like Kim Kardashian. (Photo: Instagram)
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the Kimmiest of them all? It seems that each new day brings with it a new Kim Kardashian look-alike. The latest is a woman named Sonia Ali, who runs a business with her makeup artist sister, Fyza Ali, across London and the Middle East.
But not all Kim look-alikes are created equal. With the number of her doppelgängers on the rise, it seemed high time to round up some of the recent additions to the club to see how much each one really looks like Mrs. Kanye West (or not).

The most recent addition to the army of Kims, Sonia Ali is a pretty close match. From her wide, heavily mascaraed eyes to her defined cheeks to her absolute mastery of that come-hither stare, she ticks all of the key Kardashian boxes.
And remember when Kim went through that all-neutrals phase while pregnant with baby Saint? Sonia seems to have nailed that too (the all-neutrals part, not the being pregnant part). Her penchant for giant diamond studs — whether they’re real or not — is the icing on the Kimmie cake.
2. Kamilla Osman

Last December, Canadian fashion blogger Kamilla Osman gained fame for her notable resemblance to the reality star. From the start, she was adamant that —despite her penchant for signature eye makeup and pouty lips of Kim — she didn’t try to copy the look. “We happen to be from very similar backgrounds — I am Azeri, which borders Armenia, so I guess that played a role in our similarity,” she told People. Most girls in my country have the same look.“ (Err, OK, maybe?)

Though she first denied having surgery to look more like Kim, she later admitted she had gone under the knife. "The only thing I did was my nose and my lips — and the nose was for medical reasons,” Kamilla explained to Entertainment Tonight. “I had my nose done, which is rhinoplasty, for my health problems. I had a deviated septum so I couldn’t breathe. That was for that and they tweaked it a bit. You know, why not?” She also admitted to having her lips done. When she was 15 or 16 years old… so, there’s that. (Hey, getting your lips “done” when you’re barely old enough to drive is very Kardashian!)
3. Claire Leeson

Unlike Kamilla, Kim look-alike Claire Leeson wasn’t shy about the surgery she’d had to look more like the reality star. In fact, in July 2014, she admitted to having spent nearly $30,000 on procedures to emulate Kim’s look.
“When I get my Kimmy on I feel like I’m unstoppable,“ the England resident told ITV’s This Morning radio show. But she didn’t always feel that way. Claire revealed that while growing up she was told she was "the ugliest thing alive” and that she “should kill” herself. (Yikes!) Enter Kim Kardashian to save the day. “I thought she was so beautiful and I really wanted to be like her,” Claire explained.
Since beginning her Kim-themed quest, Claire has had her breasts enhanced, her teeth whitened, countless spray tans, and even acquired a special butt pad to give her derriere a boost. While the overall look captures the spirit of Kim, however, some of the details (like her heart-shaped face) fall short of the perfection of other Kim twins.
4. Jelena Karleusa

This one’s a bit different — because Kim Kardashian might have copied her! ICYMI, back when Kim dyed her hair platinum blonde for a hot second and stepped out in an black, fur-lined coat, the Internet (almost) broke with questions of whether the reality star had ripped off Jelena’s look.
Kim’s sudden similarity to the Eastern European pop star didn’t go unnoticed by the pop star either, and she took to Instagram (where she already had over 300,000 fans) to post side-by-side shots of herself and the American reality starlet.
Despite the matching hair color and clothes, though, Jelena’s strong jawline keeps her from being an exact replica of Kim — or is it the other way around?
5. Claudia Sampedro
No, Kim hasn’t replaced Kanye. (Photo: Instagram)
Model Claudia Sampedro first garnered attention last spring for her striking resemblance to the reality star. Indeed, she has the long, lustrous locks and curvy figure to boot — and like Kim K., she’s a mom.
How much Claudia actually looks like Kim varies widely based on photo angle, makeup, and even her outfit, however. In some shots she’s a dead ringer. In others, she’s just another (very) pretty gal with a lot of hair. At least, that’s what we think.

6. Lilit Avagyan Bush

Hey, the guy’s got a type. ICYMI, Kim Kardashian’s ex Reggie Bush married Lilit Avagyan, a dance teacher who looks a whole lot like Kim K. While it’s true she’s not exactly a spitting image, her tanned skin, raven locks, and penchant for smoky eyes certainly are reminiscent of the football player’s former love.
The resemblance between Lilit and Kim truly rose to a new level, however, in Lilit’s wedding photos to Bush — because she wore a body-hugging gown that was almost an exact copy of one of the dresses Kim donned for her wedding to Kris Humphries. (And yes, that’s Brody Jenner in Lilit and Reggie’s wedding pic.) No word on what Kim thought of that.
Lilit even carries her pregnant belly like Kim. (Photo: Instagram)
