Art History Dopplegangers

I've had this one floating around in my head for awhile now (like YEARS). Forgive me for not posting art, but it's art-related, right?

Ever notice how people - your friends, family - seem to have matches? Sometimes you see these dopplegangers walking down the street, they show up on TV, or they pop up in your art history lectures! Have a looksey and enjoy. Are there any MORE famous art-history reincarnations out there? Post in the comments below!

This last one is from Fuschia's 18th Century Dress Project (blog), comparing Miss Jay Alexander (from America's Next Top Model) to Adolf Ludvig Badin, a servant of the Swedish Queen Lovisa Ulrika, from the 18th c.
