Sometimes you get all dressed up, and you’re super-excited about your look. You look in the mirror and you’re all, ‘hey gorgeous, you are one sexy lady.’ And then you show up to the party and someone is wearing basically the same outfit, down to the red lip. You’ll make the most of it, of course, but you’ll stew a bit after. Now, imagine this happened far more regularly. It’s hard to imagine, because the phenomena of “twinsies” is so much a rare fluke. But if you’re Gwen Stefani, it happens a lot. Not just by fans, but by the nanny who had sex with her husband.
Exhibit A: At first glance, you notice that both Mindy Mann (the nanny, photographed below left) and Gwen (right), both have side parts, à la Skrillex. They also both have bleach-blonde hair, with a bit of dark root showing, and they’re both wearing black, scoop-neck tanks made from T-shirts. They’re also both wearing skinny jeans and have painted their nails a bold colour. And they have both opted to wear one single bracelet on their wrists. This is, quite plainly, seeing double.
Exhibit B: Gwen (photographed below, left) is known to opt for a ghost-white face, a bright lip and a pair of statement glasses. That’s her thing, and she does it a lot. Usually, she’s sporting a fluorescent pair of sunglasses, or something Linda Farrow-esque, but here she’s wearing a pair of Tom Ford reading glasses. Thick, bold-rims to simulate, who knows, being a nerd or something. Then you have Mann (right), who has duplicated the very minimal, one-dimensional makeup look, paired with a pop of lip and a pair of not-Tom Ford glasses. They aren’t Tom Ford, and they probably aren’t even real. The pigtails may throw off the scent, but this is startlingly similar.
Exhibit C: That time Mann and Gwen wore the exact same beige jumpsuit. You’re probably thinking, ‘how many beige jumpsuit options could there even be?’ And sure, you might be right. But then don’t wear the same thing as your boss. It’s weird.

Exhibit D: Another jumpsuit. Like, it’s clear this nanny has no shame at all. And maybe her copycat, Single White Female act is by accident. Perhaps she simply adopted her style, since she was around it so much. That’s absolutely possible. Still, it seems strange to have multiple outfits that are either exactly the same, or slightly different, from your boss. Here’s Gwen wearing a denim jumpsuit:
And here’s Mann wearing an almost-identical look.

So, first Gwen had to deal with the fact that her nanny was having sex with her husband. And now she’s gotta deal with the fact that her employee was trying to be her. We hope you and Blake Shelton write a duet about this awkward, awkward mess.
WATCH: Darn the nanny…
