This YouTuber Recreated Kylie Jenner's Instagram Photos And We Can't Tell Them Apart

brittanyrae 11 Jul 2019

While some people (I said some, not all, so calm down) want to look like Kylie, others go out and do the damn thing.

That's the case with YouTuber Kristen Hancher, who was told she looked like Kylie enough times that it sparked an idea for a video for her.

Let's so how close she got.

This is Kristen Hancher.

She's a YouTuber who's part of Jake Paul's infamous Team 10.

After getting constantly comments that she looked like Kylie Jenner, Kristen decided to recreate some of Kylie's selfies to see how alike they really look.

You can see where the Kylie comparisons come from.

Sometimes, she looks exactly like Kylie. Sometimes, it's more the idea of Kylie.

There's no denying that the two definitely look the same, especially with their lips, jaws, and even their eyebrows.

People really do tell her she looks like Kylie...a lot.

At the beginning of the video, she added in screenshot after screenshot of people telling her how much she looks like Kylie Jenner.

So many of these are actually just chronological, so she hears this a ton.

Kylie? Kylie.

She started by saying, "I've been scrolling through Instagram, as one does, and I've been seeing a lot of the same comment.

Why not use this to my advantage and recreate Kylie Jenner's Instagram photos?"

This selfie took some work.

In order to make it work, she had to pop into her friend Lauren's room and borrow her bed.

She also had to change the way the bed looked, since it appears Kylie doesn't have a headboard.

She was dedicated to this.

"I'm doing this for real. Like, I'm not playing games. I'm gonna get it exactly the same as each photo.

Or, I'm gonna try my best, anyways."

She laughed while doing most of this one, which was so frickin' cute.

The results: Selfie number one!

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

I. Am. Shook.

She nailed this one. And she totally knew it, too.

"I don't think it gets any better than this, but yeah. I'm really proud of myself! And now I do see the comparison, and why people keep comparing me to her."

Selfie two required a bit more work.

She needed to find a bodysuit like Kylie's, and then a similar background.

Another key element was lighting, which she just hilariously misunderstood. Thank god her friends were there to set her straight.

Her boyfriend got his moment, too.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

"And we got this golden hour thing kinda goin' on, the lighting is always spectacular here—"

"Not golden hour." Interrupted her boyfriend, Austin.

"Well, it's like, the lighting!" She insisted, which is just...so wrong and so hilarious.

"Golden hour."

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

(Golden hour is just before sunset, for the record.)

"The lighting is bomb," she continued. Her friends were around to keep her humble and remind her broad daylight was not golden hour.

Selfie two: Golden hour, but make it noon.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

She said this one was harder because staged pictures always take more work than selfies.

"I think the only thing that's a little off is just my body position." And even then, it's still pretty good.

Next up was a jean jacket selfie.

Taken at the actual golden hour!

Improvising had to be done here, too. Kylie is wearing what look like a jean jacket with print on it, so Kristen had to find something similar.

First, Austin had to mock her just a little.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

Kristen started, "Okay guys, this is outfit and look number three—"

Austin interrupted her. "Every time she starts talking, it starts with 'Okay guys'."

"That's so true," she said, laughing. Can't be mad at the truth.

Plus, ponytails were involved.

The problem with the ponytail? Kristen was wearing a wig.

"My hair is not [expletive] it, though, I'll tell you that. It looks I'm wearing, like, I don't even know, like a hat?"

Okay...yeah, maybe a little. Still cute, though.

Selfie three: Nailed it.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

Kristen actually wasn't a fan of this one.

"So far, this is my least favorite. Just because I didn't get the lighting right. The lighting she used was in prime golden hour, and I tried to go into the sun, and it was not it for me."

Selfie four involved athleisure realness.

Luckily, Kristen had the same track pants that Kylie's wearing.

"She has the same pants as me."

Her friend off camera then decided to roast her: "Does she have the same pants as you, or do you have the same pants as her?"

Kristen: "Tea."

"Okay, guys..."

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

So, Austin decided to roast her during her next "Okay, guys" moment.

"There it is! 'Okay, guys.' Every single time."

Her friend behind the camera stuck up for her: "Leave her alone! Literally, we would have already been done with the shot."

Oops.

Strike a pose.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

The angles were harder on this one. She had to try a couple different variations of her head's movement, including having her hair hang more in the front.

Of course, she totally got it in the end.

This one is eerily close.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

This one is the one that actually made me do a double take. I thought she had put the Kylie one first for a second.

If you couldn't see the resemblance before, you can definitely see it now.

She kind of looks more like Kylie than Kylie does.

For the last photo, a new wig was required.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

Because Kylie was rocking a wig, Kristen had to grab a new one.

Luckily, as we saw in the previous reviews of her shots, she totally has one exactly like Kylie's!

Load Comments

This was the hardest one.

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

She picked out a new white crop top, which was the easy part.

The harder part was getting the wig to do the same thing Kylie's did. No matter what she did, she couldn't get the same swoop over her eye.

Finally, selfie five!

YouTube | Kristen Hancher

"I tried so hard to do that, but it was not cooperating for me. I think I still did a good job."

She totally did, and the Kylie comparisons make a ton of sense.

Check out the whole video!

Still pictures don't totally communicate how alike she and Kylie look, so have a look for yourself!

Which one do you think had the most resemblance to Kylie? My vote is still for the track pants selfie.
