Celebrity look-a-likes are a dime a dozen nowadays, thanks in large part to the internet and society’s growing obsession with fame and plastic surgery; however, many of these "doppelgängers" are self-proclaimed and, honestly, aren’t that convincing. But we recently came across one case that is truly impressive.
Meet Mardee Shackleford, a 21-year-old woman from California who looks just like Miley Cyrus. Her resemblance to the pop star is so striking that security guards have had to protect her from “fans” on more than one occasion. Even Miley’s father, Billy Ray Cyrus, thought she looked so similar to his daughter that he pulled her from the crowd at one of Miley’s concerts, according to the Daily Mail.
“Sometimes it feels like I am actually famous or a celebrity, just on a really small scale,” Shackleford told the Daily Mail. “It's been really fun for me.”
Check out some of Shackleford’s Instagram posts below. You can see she has the Miley look down to a T—from the hair to the clothing to the tongue.
