Day 4: Vladimir Putin’s doppelgänger?

It’s been a slow #doyoulooklikeme day. Probably because it’s Sunday. Day of rest and all that.

And so, because I’ve had no reply from the best contender yet, I thought I’d share an amusing doppelgänger story that recently hit the headlines: A farmer called Lo Yuanpin, who lives in central China, has become a celebrity after a journalist noticed he shared a striking resemblance to Vladimir Putin, the Russian prime minister.

So what do you think? Split at birth or are you having a laugh? Leave your comments below…

Day 1: Once upon a time…

My name is Sophie Robehmed and I am a journalist looking for my doppelgänger for a social experiment feature. ARE YOU HER? DO YOU KNOW HER? WHERE IS SHE? In the famous words of Nikki Grahame: WHO IS SHE? WHO IS SHE? WHO IS SHE? WHERE DID YOU FIND HER? (Please tell me.)

WHY?

Because we’ve all seen a person in the street, in a shop, on holiday or on the bus that looks like our partner, mum or best mate. But have you ever found your very own lookalike? I certainly haven’t so that’s why I’m determined to find her. I intend to write a feature for a national publication about the outcome of this social experiment – and I need your help please.

HOW?

With the help of social media, word of mouth, the kindness of strangers and the power of the internet, I hope to find my doppelgänger and discover whether the only similarities we share are our looks. Please email sophierobehmed@live.com with your pictures of women (but please ask their permission first) who look like me and I will be posting them on the blog (as long as they’re happy with it).

I will be recording my progress and every grain of hope on this blog as I search THE WORLD for another woman who looks significantly like me. Please spread the word and help me find her. Leave a comment below or contact me via the email address above if you are her,  know her or have seen her. Thank you.

Oh, and this is what I look like:
