Is it just us or could actresses Minka Kelly and Leighton Meester pass for siblings? The similarities are striking! Even if we leave their long brown hair and flawless complexions out of the equation, both beauties star in TV shows (Minka on Friday Night Lights and Parenthood, and Leighton on Gossip Girl). And now we find out that they are costarring in The Roommate, a thriller in which Leighton plays a coed obsessed with Minka’s character. The film hits theaters on Feb. 4. Oh, but the likenesses don’t stop at the silver screen. They may not be blood sisters, but these two celebs are definitely style sisters. Check out the resemblances in their wardrobes…starting with what they wore to the People’s Choice Awards on Jan. 5 (Minka wore a Vivienne Westwood bustier minidress, while Leighton donned a similarly styled Vionnet dress with floral appliqués).

For movie screenings, these two had the same look in mind. Minka wore a Zero Maria + Cornejo sleeveless print dress with Jimmy Choo slingbacks to the Dec. 14 screening of Country Strong, which features Leighton. And for the premiere of Date Night on April 6, Leighton slipped into a Giambattista Vali dress and strappy PHI shoes.

Proving ruffles and prints DO mix, Minka rocked a flirty Dior dress to the premiere of (500) Days of Summer. Leighton ALSO wore Dior—a short floral dress—for the Country Strong screening (yes, the same premiere that Minka wore her V-neck minidress to in the pic above).

Minka looked amazing in a beige Marchesa dress full of lace, bows and draping. Meanwhile, Leighton wore a just-as-girly Marc Jacobs dress this past fall.

Minka went for the gold in a gilded dress with a deep V-neck with matching strappy shoes, and Leighton went for the silver in an Elie Saab powdery tulle cocktail dress with matching suede peep-toe platforms.

It’s no surprise these two peas-in-a-pod would both forgo a traditional structured jacket for something more throw-it-on-and-go. Minka wore an army-style blazer with tights and a tee to the William Rast for Target launch event on Dec. 11, while Leighton wore a sheer Louis Vuitton jacket over a bright skirt and top ensemble a year ago.
