- Lourdes Leon, Madonna's daughter, made a high-wattage appearance at New York Fashion Week and now, fans on the internet are obsessed with how much she resembles Lady Gaga.
- Check out the side-by-side below and let us know if you agree.
New York Fashion Week ended with a bang when Madonna's daughter Lourdes Leon sat front row at the Proenza Schouler show. While her appearance in and of itself was a big deal, fans on social media lost their minds when they realized the 22-year old resembles another member of pop royalty: Lady Gaga.
At the show, Leon, whose father is Cuban actor Carlos Leon, sat nearby Suki Waterhouse and Emily Ratajkowski and wore a simple white tank top, short-shorts, and cream booties—an outfit that Lady Gaga may have rocked in the late 2000s, before she blew up.
Twitter was quick to point out the similarities, of course, and it even caught Buzzfeed's attention.

The idea had its detractors, and they were swift and passionate:

I said that Lourdes and Lady Gaga don't look the same, which is true cause they don't. There's no similarity, having long black hair isn't a similarity. If that's enough to make you pressed or hurt your stan feelings isn't my problem. I didn't say anything wrong or rude. pic.twitter.com/yJDG8qKB0s

If you're still unconvinced, we've done the work for you. Here's a side-by-side of Lourdes, 22, and a 21-year-old Lady Gaga:
Our opinion? They definitely look alike thanks to that jet-black hair, strong Italian features, and a youthful stare. Leon is giving off A Star Is Born vibes with the outfit, too.
Of course, we had to include a picture of Lourdes and her mother, because clearly, this DNA runs deep:
And if you're wondering what Leon and Gaga look like together, well, we've got you:
