One more thing we’re thankful for this week: The universe continues to offer up new mind-bending celebrity twinning moments. Today, come along with us as we suspend the time-space continuum just long enough to compare model Anja Rubik in the latest issue of Vogue Paris to actress Sigourney Weaver in the 1979 movie Alien. Because this is what we do for a living and what you read while procrastinating at work.

Stunningly transformed in makeup by Hannah Murray and hair by Duffy, blond Rubik is like a high-glamour version of Weaver as Ellen Ripley in the classic sci-fi horror flick—mainly thanks to a glorious chestnut wig that mimics the character’s memorable curly hair. Layered to keep the curls coiled to the max all the way up around the crown, this haircut was a staple of ’80s beauty right up there with frosted lipstick. Many of us tried to achieve this exact look via perms, but relatively few succeeded. And nobody ever made this hairstyle quite as lustworthy as Vogue Paris just did with this update.

That said, we can’t ignore the other obvious hair comparison here: to Jennifer Beals’ character in Flashdance circa 1983. Take your passion, make it happen. Especially if that includes ’80s throwback hair.

And in other wonderfully ’80s twinning moments, you must see Adele’s Devo (as in the guys behind “Whip It”) hat hairstyle.
