Supermodel Cindy Crawford and actress Jessica Lange have welcomed comparisons between themselves and Caitlyn Jenner after fans noticed similarities between the women’s looks following the transgender star’s big reveal on Monday (01Jun15).
Kim Kardashian’s stepfather, formerly known as Bruce Jenner, debuts his new female persona on the cover of Vanity Fair magazine and observers were quick to draw comparisons to two other famous faces.
Before becoming aware of the likeness, Crawford took to Twitter.com to praise the photoshoot, writing, “I think @Caitlyn_Jenner looks beautiful – so proud of her and this gorgeous @VanityFair cover!”
She returned to Twitter on Tuesday (02Jun15) to joke about the similarities, tweeting, “Okay, @Caitlyn_Jenner borrowed my hair for her @VanityFair shoot. Now, can I borrow her legs?! Great work…”
Meanwhile, Tootsie star Lange admitted on Monday that she had yet to see Jenner’s new look, but she was flattered by social media users’ comments suggesting they could be sisters as they shared similar facial structures.
The 66 year old learned of the news from a reporter at TheDailyBeast.com, to which she replied, “Oh really? That’s so wonderful. Well now I’m going to have to look for that picture.”
Former Olympian Jenner went public with plans to transition from male to female in April (15), weeks after undergoing facial feminisation surgery in March (15).
