Photos: Dubai sisters look 'exactly' like the Kardashians
The Kardashians are in Dubai. No, they are not!
They say there are seven people in the world who look exactly like you. But what are the chances that two real-life sisters would end up looking like celebrity doppelgangers!
And not just any celebrity lookalike. They bear an uncanny resemblance to the top reality TV personalities - Kim Kardashian and her sister Kylie Jenner.
If you have been amazed to see the Kardashian sisters hopping around beaches and malls in Dubai, take a deeper look. They are actually Dubai-based lifestyle bloggers Sonia and Fyza Ali (@Soniaxfyza).
"People started spotting similarities between us and the Kardashian sisters while we were in Los Angeles two summers ago," says Sonia.
So, have they been mistaken for Kim and Kylie in Dubai? "It happens mostly in the US. Many people in Dubai just stare at us but don't approach us for autographs or selfies like they do in America," shares another sister Fyza.
How can you be so alike? If you follow the celebrity stars on Instagram, you will find a similarity between the videos and pictures the Dubai sisters post with the original Kardashians.
User comments like "Thought you were Kylie" and "You guys look like Kim and Kylie" keep appearing below their posts.
Another user goes to the point of saying, "You both even pose like Kim and Kylie. How can you look so alike them?"
Questions like these are followed by speculations that the sisters have gone under the knife to get the chiselled look.
Clearing the air, Fyza says, "When you have one sister who is a makeup professional, anything is possible with contour."
With 765,000 followers on their Instagram page, the sisters have joined the league of top influencers in Dubai. Their posts now promote the lifestyle and cosmetic brands, each getting up to 180,000 views on average.
Don't miss the paparazzi pictures of the duo on their trips abroad. The People magazine in their story mentioned that the Ali siblings have gone ahead and hired a professional photographer to snap paparazzi-like pictures when they are on their LA trips.
Where did it all begin?Becoming lifestyle bloggers happened by chance for the make-up professionals.
Born and raised in London, Sonia and Fyza visited the Middle East very often during their growing up years. "We lived in Kuwait before we moved to Dubai. Moving to Dubai wasn't a culture shock for us as we were raised "very Middle Eastern" and the city is a perfect mix of the West and the East."
Posting make-up tutorials over the Internet began when a regional manager at Mac in Florida introduced them on Instagram. "She asked us to post our looks regularly to showcase our work to her colleagues and work for Mac."
Keeping up with the Kardashians Although their claim to fame is being spitting image of the Kardashian sisters, they do not follow their lives on social media. "We are so different," comes their reply.
And, have they ever met the celebrity A-listers? Well, Sonia and Fyza did bump into Kim Kardashian three years ago but didn't get a chance to speak to her as the room was very crowded.
