Kim Kardashian’s newfound doppelganger had a thing or two to say about her new hairdo.
She threw the Internet for a loop after debuting her newly dyed platinum blonde hair in France the other day, and it had been unlike any style she’d ever done to this point. Sure, she’s broken the Internet in other instances (such as her Paper magazine cover), but until then nobody could’ve imagined Kardashian as a blonde—but they can now.

People had plenty of thoughts on the hair, but along with noticing the coincidence of Jared Leto going blonde, people quickly zeroed in one one detail: When Kardashian’s hair is slicked back, she looks uncannily like a certain Slytherin from the Harry Potter series.

But the best reaction of the Draco Malfoy/Kardashian connection came none other than Malfoy’s portrayer, Tom Felton. He wasn’t the first person to make it by any means, but as an expert on the movie portrayal of Malfoy
To be fair, Malfoy did have impeccable fashion sense once you got him out of the Hogwarts uniforms and Kardashian does enchant the Internet from time to time, so maybe the comparison isn’t that far off.
