One look at Camila Luz and you could be forgiven for wondering if you’d spotted Kendall Jenner herself.

Brazilian supermodel Camila (21) is turning heads thanks to her striking resemblance to the 25-year-old model and reality TV star.

With 70 000 followers on Instagram and having graced the covers of many international glossy magazines, Camila is fast making a name for herself in the modelling industry – and she’s earning a staggering $100 000 (R1,35 million) a month from Instagram sponsorships.

The model has attributed her looks – and her tiny 53cm waist – to good genes and a healthy diet and says she hasn’t undergone any cosmetic procedures.

“I’m all natural,” she says. “The secret to having a perfect body is to avoid consuming too much sugar, soft drinks and fast food. All bodies are built different,” Camila says. “We should celebrate that instead of fixating on having someone else’s body.”

Camila is no longer surprised at being mistaken for Kendall because it happens so often. “I came back to Brazil a few weeks ago and people stopped me on the street to ask if I was Kendall Jenner.” 

As much as she’s flattered by the attention, she’s cautioned fans against trying to make themselves look like her or Kendall.

“Any woman can have a Kendall body in their own body. Respect your natural curves, make smart choices and choose the healthiest options.”

Camila, who wanted to be an actress when she was growing up, has been modelling since age 16, when she was discovered by her then-agent Carlos Alexandre Oliveira Correa in the state of Goiás in Brazil.

She moved to Milan and made a name for herself in fashion shoots and on catwalks for brands, including Saint Laurent and Prada.

After spending a year in Italy she moved to Hong Kong and worked all over Asia before returning to Europe.
