Linda Evangelista has made a career out of changing her look more often than a chameleon.
But the supermodel”s latest incarnation is as someone completely different.
Brazilian model Isabeli Fontana is the spitting image of Canadian Evangelista on the cover of French Vogue”s June / July edition.

Their jaw shapes are identical and they share the same desirable cheekbones, small, pointy nose and chunky eyebrows.
The only difference between the 27-year-old and the 46-year-old (excluding the hairstyle) is the stark contrast in eye colour. Isabeli”s turquoise gaze matches the bright blue background of her cover, while Linda”s are a darker blue-green.
Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott”s toned down the colours of their Isabeli shoot a little for the cover of Vogue Paris.
The inside neon-tinted pictures, titled Heatwave, pay homage to a 1989 Steven Meisel shoot and have a distinctly Latino feel – despite the cover”s splash announcing that this issue is a Greece special.

The shoot was styled by the magazine”s editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt.
She picked a ruffled purple dress from the Christian Dior Spring/Summer 2011 collection for Isabeli to wear on the cover, accessorized with cross pendant pink jewel-encrusted necklace, a little nod to the model”s strict religious beliefs.

Inside the magazine, Isabeli wears colorful pieces from YSL, Prada, Moschino and Emilio Pucci.
In contrast, Linda is modelling slightly more pedestrian clothes now. She is the face of American yummy mummy chain Talbots.
