A new app claims to match you with your celebrity twin. does it work?
You may have noticed Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram’s been littered with “You Look Like...” posts - mysteriously uniform photos of your friends, back-to-back with famous people, and a declaration that yes, your college roommate really does look like Blake Lively / Emma Stone / Joy Bryant. The Hollywood ego boosts are courtesy of Alike, a free smartphone app that “reads” your facial features, then matches them with their closest famous face. After the clothing designer Chrissie Miller put her friend Lindsay Lohan’s photo into the App - and came back with Piper Perabo as her closest twin - we were curious: What if we put NYLON cover stars into the app? Would they be matched with themselves... or with another actress from Coyote Ugly? Below are our results. Let us know if the app - which you can get for free on iTunes - works better or worse for you! (WHOSE CELEB TWINS, ACCORDING TO ALIKE, ARE MATTHEW BRODERICK + WINONA RYDER.) Alike, Free on iTunes
