Look-Alikes: Piper Gilles

Recently, my Twitter was all abuzz with the fact that Piper Gilles became a Canadian citizen. Here’s a Tweet of what I assume is her after her citizenship ceremony:

Piper citizenshipAfter seeing this picture, I was struck by Piper’s resemblance to Blake Lively, who I adored in the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies.

But when I was searching for pictures of Piper, I found this particular photo:

And immediately, I thought that the look she has in this picture was so Quinn Fabray/Dianna Agron:

Dianna AgronDo you guys see the resemblance? Let me know in the comments~!

Also, if you find any other look-alikes, let me know and I’ll feature them in a post! Of course, I’ll give credit where it’s due. I’ll also be happy link readers to your site/blog/channel/other social media site if you put it in with your comments!

Happy Holidays~!

P.S. I swear I’ll get started on those Skating 101 posts soon. I have an idea of where to start but I have a feeling the post will be tedious to write.

Look-Alikes: Anna Pogorilaya

I was watching CBC’s coverage on the Cup of Russia and when they announced the entries for the ladies competition at the Grand Prix Final. When I saw a headshot of Anna Pogorilaya, I immediately thought, “OMG, it’s Regina George!” Or rather, I was referring to a character from Mean girls played by Rachel McAdams.

And just because I’m such a fan of this movie…

“One time, she punched me in the face… It was awesome.”

Do you think there’s a resemblance here? Let me know!

Look-Alikes: Elizaveta Tuktamysheva once more!

I did a Look-Alikes post on Liza in the past but I was watching a youtube video when one of those ads popped up, this time advertising a fragrance for Calvin Klein. The model for it is Rooney Mara and at one point, she sports a hairstyle with straight bangs and looks out of a car window:

I couldn’t help but feel that Elizaveta had a similar bone structure in her face even though their face shapes are different.

Look-Alikes: Carolina Kostner

I was watching some clips of Stephen Colbert and nowadays when you want to access the videos on that site, you have to watch a commercial. Sigh. In any case, this Dove commercial popped up and I noticed that one of the girls looked like Carolina.

Here’s the commercial:

Look-Alikes: Cynthia Phaneuf, Tessa Virtue

I was wandering around The Slate and was reading about a movie about Rosaline, the girl Romeo was going gaga over before he met Juliet. An interesting concept though as far as I can remember, Rosaline was supposed to remain celibate or become a nun or something. Either way, she doesn’t get into the mess that is the relationship between two horomonal teens. (I do like Shakespeare but I found Romeo and Juliet to be terribly asinine. Mercutio was the only decent character in that entire play. “A plague on both your houses, I am dead. Ask for me tomorrow and you shall find me a grave man.”)

In any case, the article named Allison Williams as the girl who might play Rosaline. When I saw her, I immediately thought she looked like Cynthia Phaneuf.

However, when I was searching for other pictures of Allison Williams, I found that at certain angles and with different makeup, she also looked like Tessa Virtue.

Look-Alikes: Jeff Buttle

The other day, I was wondering what sorts of posts I could do during the off season. The most obvious one would be a look-alike post since I wouldn’t have to comment on skating (I’m detoxing from figure skating right now to prepare myself for the action and drama of the Olympic season) and since people seem to enjoy the posts. While I was thinking about my look-alike posts, I realized that a lot of them were for female skaters. I was thinking about this while going over to a friend’s house and when I entered into his apartment, his roommate was watching Sliders. I have no clue what it was about but lo and behold, I noticed that one of the characters looked like Jeff Buttle! What great coincidence!

The Silders guy also sort of looks like John Travolta.

Look-Alikes: Gabrielle Daleman

While watching the World Team Trophy, I noticed that Gabrielle Daleman reminded me a lot of Julie Powers from the Scott Pilgrim movie. After a little google work, it turns out that the actress who plays bitchy (and hilarious) Julie is named Aubrey Plaza. She also occasionally appears on collegehumor videos.

What do you think?

And just because I’m a Scott Pilgrim fan (the comics are better though) and I love how the story is set in Toronto…
