Doppelgänger Dudes: Landon Donovan & Some Chanel Model

Presenting Landon Donovan and a random Chanel model, who could quite easily star alongside one another in a remake of the Disney movie where twins switch places, ‘Freaky Friday.’

Only theirs would be called, ‘Freaky, Fraternal-Twins-Separated-At-Birth-Holy-Cow-They-Look-So-Much-Alike-We-Can’t-Get-Over-It Friday.’

Too long of a title?


Cheers to @DanielleLlanes for the spot. Images via Getty and Tumblr.

    landon donovan …. bald … will be WAY hotter than 99 percent of the men on planet earth.

  2. ziru says:

    They only looked real alike with Baptiste Giabiconi's photo here. I can't really see their resemblance other than from Baptiste's photo here for he got edgy features while Donovan's soft.

  3. Anna says:

    O_O I though that model was the real Donovan, scary!

  4. Jennie says:

    That's Baptiste Giabiconi!!! one of the most gorgeous male model for now…Landon is handsome but shame about the receding

  5. Susan says:

    Correct my fashion gossip if I am wrong, but my understanding was Baptiste is a bit more than just his muse, which is why I found one of the comments about him being single rather hysterical.

  6. Bianca says:

    It's ''The Parent Trap'' actually, ''Freaky Friday'' isn't about twins =)

  7. kaya says:

    I'm thinking there's a frame from the 2002 LD water foundation shoot that would be even closer.

  8. Tashinka says:

    Fabulous! It's actually too much of a lookalike to be posted to WAATP's Sh!t Lookalikes (which I enjoy immensely, and have posted to before).

    Glad you posted it here, Kickette!

  9. Karina says:

    I thought we were fashionistas here at Kickette. Anyone who follows fashion, especially Chanel, would instantly recognize Baptiste. Also, he is smoking hot and is stratospheres from being compared to common, bald Landon.

  10. rossanera says:

    … you mean, what did this beautiful French man do to deserve to be compared to a short, balding, whiny Landon Donovan? BTW – "Frog" is an offensive term.

    • TheRamos says:

      Are you a Frog?I forgot Frogs had feelings too!

      • Ana says:

        You are obviously a moron who (a) doesn't known when she's not being funny and (b) didn't notice her prior comment was deleted. Quit while you're ahead, and stop shaming the name of Sergio Ramos.

  11. [...] HE SHOULD SEND THIS GUY IN HIS PLACE. FREAKY. Doppelgangers weird me out. Landon Donovan’s is particularly freaky. // Kickette [...]

  12. Lauren_BCN says:

    chanel fashion show was BREATHTAKING!!! as always…

  13. Flowerbomd says:

    Am I in Donovans Dream? where Kickette right about him and propose that he looks like a model.hahaha Oh donovan we all have funny dreams sometimes

  14. Melaniee. says:

    my mind is bloowwn…

  15. Catie2838 says:

    Winnie's right. He's HOT. And as of this youtube video, he is also single ;) . My French is very rusty and I stopped trying to translate cause I was too busy looking at him and not paying attention, but he's talking about his album (yup, he sings), his influences and why he sings in English. He also starts singing in French at 3:00.

    That being said his video for Showtime made me almost die laughing. He saves a girl in the American desert and blows up things with his eyes. I feel like if C-Ron had a pop singing alter-ego, it would be Baptiste Giabiconi.

  16. Kat says:

    Freaky Friday isn't about twins switching, though. FF was about a mom and a daughter switching bodies. It's another Lindsay Lohan movie, The Parent Trap (in my opinion LiLo's best work) that's about twins switching.

    That being said, the resemblance is uncanny!

    • Kelly says:

      We blame our abnormally early drinking schedules for the error. We’d like to say we can make it up to everyone, but we’re trying to be realistic here.

  17. xbabyshakesx says:

    Before reading, I was thinking "In what setting does Donovan dress like this?" XD kekeke

  18. sarie says:

    Chanel or not that guy looks idiotic. Hot though.

  19. Emma says:

    Isnt that baptiste giabiconi or so? he is not some random chanel model kickette, he is karl lagerfield's muse :D . Lagerfield designed a chocolate room for him and he appears out of nowhere in nothing in each n every lagerfield work. The photos with heels were hilarious.

  20. xoWinnie says:

    the model's name is Baptiste Giabiconi, he's been Karl Lagerfeld's muse for a couple of years now.
    google him ladies, he is a hot piece of ass. also not balding or short, like Landon.

  21. Lisette says:

    In my novelisation of this, one of the Kickettes gets an email from Landon saying that this IS him, and would s/he like to meet him, and by the way he needs someone to rub baby oil on him at his next shoot. In Tuscany.

    He's not my type, but I like it when good things happen to people.

    • Kay20 says:

      Hilarious Lisette – great post.

      Must be the chiselled cheekbones!!! They look very alike.

      And I hope one of Landon's teammates takes this image and posts it in the lockeroom somewhere for some good natured ribbing.

  22. April says:

    Crap.. I really thought that was Donovan in the other picture, and I wondered what strange hobbies he had picked up.

  23. Anonymous says:

    The model is Baptiste Giabiconi, the go-to male model for Chanel. Omg, I can't believe never noticed the eery resemblance haha!

    • TFBlovesArsenal says:

      Most likely because Baptiste has ludicrously flamboyant hair at most times, whereas Landon…um…doesn't.

      Seriously though, I never would have thought the two looked alike, but after seeing these two photos side by side, I can't unsee it.

  24. Catie2838 says:

    Way creepy. And also, I'm pretty sure my grandmother had a pant suit and brooch just like that.

    • MadridistaJenn says:

      LOL! I couldn't make it past your comment because I started laughing hysterically. And yes, you're right, its very "old lady chic".

    Nice head scarf !

  27. Rachel says:

    Crazy! I can just picture Landon wearing the model's headpiece to practice or something. LOL
