Which one of these women is Rihanna?
The one on the left.
The woman on the right is 22-year-old Andele Lara, a dead-ringer for the celebrity who lives in Boston and says she makes some pretty serious bank essentially because of the resemblance.
Lara tells the Daily Mail that brands pay her more than $20,000 to endorse their shoes, mascara and hair accessories. Her main marketing vehicle is her Instagram which boasts just shy of 30,000 followers.
Lara says she can’t leave the house without being swarmed by strangers who believe she is Rihanna—especially when she goes clubbing.
“Even my friends get annoyed by the number of people who come up to me,” she says. “Men come up to mea ll the time, thinking I’m Rihanna and buying me drinks! They chat me up and try to get my number.”
Ultimately, Lara plans to become a professional Rihanna lookalike, and she has hopes that she’ll one day get to “meet Ri-Ri and take a selfie with her!”
