Olivia Sturgess, from New South Wales, has gained Internet fame over the past few days for being Swift’s doppelgänger, and the two finally met on Friday, Dec. 11.

Sturgess, a 19-year-old Target retail assistant who describes herself as a “hardcore Swiftie for 6 years,” told the Daily Mail: “I got my hair cut consciously like hers, but everything else is just sort of coincidental.”

“The clothing and stuff – we’ve actually got pretty similar taste. I don’t really consciously dress like her,” she added. “I wear red lipstick because it’s a Taylor Swift concert.”

“I think it’s just the facial structure. I’ve got small eyes and bigger lips like her,” she added. “Sometimes I won’t wear makeup at all and still get told I look like her.”

Here’s the photo of the two finally meeting one another at a backstage visit in Melbourne. Swift is the taller one on the left:

According to BuzzFeed, Sturgess said she was recently approached by dozens of people asking for photos.

“It took us an hour to walk a 10-minute trip because once I stopped for one photo, 20 others would ask. It was crazy,” she said.
