    i had 7/8. the hardest are 5 and 7! there’s another actress who looks like em, she’s emily blunt fron the devil wears prada. i thought they were all the same girl

    That wasn’t hard at all. 8/8

  3. Deviee 7 November 2008 at 12:02 pm #

    I think (personally and no offence) that Katy is copying Zooey.
    If it’s true, that just proved that Katy is jealous of Zooey, and that Zooey is by far the best, a beautiful inspiration for young girls today. :)


    p.s I can recognise Zooey in all pictures because I love her way too much.

    hehe. (honestly) you can tell by their eyes and her face shape.

  4. Deviee 7 November 2008 at 12:06 pm #

    her eyes not their**

    5 was really difficult, but i got 8/8 (:

    hmm i defintely love them both…they both look like a chick i used to date…definetly the hottest girl i’ve ever had the pleasure of sexing…I wish they would have my babies….

    it’s pretty easy to tell by their styles and face shapes.
    both styles are kind of old-fashioned, but katy’s is more provocative, hipster-ish, and fun. zooey’s is more cutesy, truly vintage, and elegant.
    for face shapes, katy’s looks narrower. something with their jaw bones, idk.

    8 out of 8 here. I’ve thought Zooey was hot as hell ever since seeing her in Hitchhikers and only recently came across Katy Perry and thought “She looks a lot like that Zooey chick) so googled their names and got this page.

    Go figure

    they completely almost twins.Katy was born to be a singer and muscian because she’s a gospel singer and both her parents were pastors.While Zooey was born to be an actress though she’s now try to be a singer and both her parents also her sister were actors.They just looks like physically.

  10. iki 25 November 2008 at 2:55 pm #

    I was confused the first time I saw Katy’s video for “I Kissed a Girl”. I could have sworn it was Zooey, who I knew was trying to break into the music industry. I had always remembered Zooey’s voice being a little deeper and more subtle.. and she was definitely not going by any alias. When I looked them up together, I was stunned. They’re practically twins. x.x I guess if you study their faces enough, it’s easier to tell them apart. Katy Perry seems a lot more doe-eyed while Zooey DesChanel has slightly more “squint”. But the easiest way to tell the difference? Their wardrobe. Katy Perry has a burlesque, retro, “rocker grrl” style while Zooey DesChanel has a classy, girlish, slightly whimsical feel to her.

    And no, I don’t spend all day looking at them. I’m a girl for starters, but I’m also an artist. As an artist, you can look artwork and photographs over and pick out small details and minute differences when making comparisons. Others can do the same, but all I’m saying is that it just comes with the territory.

  11. iki 25 November 2008 at 3:03 pm #

    And for the record, I love She & Him and think Zooey sounds just fine. It’s mostly easy listening and soft rock.

  12. cinnemon15 28 November 2008 at 1:46 pm #

    they really do look a lot alike, but zooey is more slender and katy has a fuller face, and chest.
    you can also tell the difference because of the way they dress, katy wears like cute and tiny outfits with brighter colours and more accessories whereas zooey dresses a bit more sophisticated and dressy

  13. anice 30 November 2008 at 1:08 am #

    Zooey is more gorgeous than Perry

    Perry looks like she tries too hard.

  14. Dan 1 December 2008 at 2:43 pm #

    Zooey Deschanel is more pretty than K. Perry. I was 8/8
    it’s easy
    I love u Z.D.

  15. aïcha 7 December 2008 at 2:35 am #

    zooey is way way way way cooler

  16. d 13 December 2008 at 4:36 pm #

    ha ha ha. i think its funny that the only reason i could tell all 8 of them was because i have seen all of those pictures before. perhaps this is a better test for those who arent fans of either. i appreciate you making this tho.

  17. Johnny 17 December 2008 at 5:30 am #

    6 and 7 shows Zooey is classes above

  18. Deanna 25 December 2008 at 9:47 am #

    I got them all right. proberly because im a fan of katy and ive looked her up on google and ive seen those pics and i no the way she dresses. haha im lamee.

  19. Tony 25 December 2008 at 10:36 pm #

    I always thought Zooey was the chick in that Gym Class Hero’s video. I didn’t realize how much they look like till now.

  20. katy perry's #1 fan 28 December 2008 at 3:29 am #

    This test wasn’t as hard as i thought it would be. i got 8/8. i really really love Katy Perry and i think that she is an amazing musician. I really love Zooey aswell and i think that she is an exceptional actress. When i saw Zooey for the first time i thought that it was Katy Perry until i found out that it was zooey. You are both exceptionally incredible people. Aim high and keep smiling. luv ya both heaps!!!!!

  21. ZoeRocks 30 December 2008 at 12:44 am #

    Someone commented that Taryn Manning was the girl on the right in number 5. She is the girl on the LEFT. Zooey is on the right.

  22. hello from the future « my coney

    [...] perry _or_  katy zoe as i like to call her.  fortunately, the gimcrack miscellany did the legwork back in july + posted the below comparisons katy – zoe zoe – katy zd – [...]

  23. Errin 30 December 2008 at 10:35 pm #

    They do look VERY similar, though it’s easy to tell them apart. Zooey is much prettier in my opinion, I think it’s the bright blue eyes. Who else thinks Zooey looks like Christina Ricci in number 5 though?

  24. Mandy 31 December 2008 at 6:57 pm #

    I got them all right, but then again Zooey is one of my favorite actresses. I don’t think they look that much alike.

  25. Nicholas 1 January 2009 at 12:31 am #

    so this was reaaaally easy. i didnt even have to check how each person dressed or the whole katy perry has bigger boobs thing. but i do like katy perry and she is a pretty good artist. before you flame me, im not gay or bi. but i do agree they look a lot alike

  26. mix 3 January 2009 at 10:18 am #

    i lover you both! you guys really look like twins :)

  27. Alessandra 3 January 2009 at 4:37 pm #

    Damn!! you’re really look like each other, anyway… both are great…

  28. nikki 7 January 2009 at 11:23 am #

    Got them all right!! Only because I had just watched Bridge to Terabithia, which Zooey plays the music teacher, and thought, “woah, is that Katy Perry, I didn’t know she acted!?” SO I started googling. Then came across your post.

  29. Frenger 9 January 2009 at 12:36 am #

    They seem to be the same person! It’s such a incredible thing! But… Zooey is so much better. Katy Perry looks like a bitch.

  30. eric 9 January 2009 at 5:51 pm #

    Zooey was the babe playing Dorothy in ‘Tin Man’, right?
    I think both of them are hot and am right now imaging
    having the threesome with the two of them. I wonder if
    Zooey would be down for that? :-)

  31. Sonja 15 January 2009 at 7:19 am #

    7/8! :P

  32. Steve 15 January 2009 at 11:19 pm #

    hey Gimcracker, Katy has bigger boobs too, so a bust shot wouldnt work either, meybe just their faces and crop out the rest for the ultimate test

  33. Sam 26 January 2009 at 3:29 am #

    Was easy as if you know their styles. None of them were even remotly difficult.

  34. Zhangy 1 February 2009 at 12:42 am #

    They are like twins holy cow!!

  35. Jarret 3 February 2009 at 9:41 am #

    Wow… I thought for sure they were the same person for the longest time… I finally figured out they were just each others dopplegangers. I just fought with my mom about it for half an hour in the car cause she thought that Katy was in a movie and it was actually Zooey!

  36. Rafael 5 February 2009 at 6:31 am #

    I did 8/8 but the 6 and the 8 are hard, and I just right the 5 beause I already seen these show scenes..

  37. zack 14 February 2009 at 5:42 pm #

    8/8 !!! guess you are right Gimcracker. Me spending too much time online. To prove it: today is valentines day today, and I am on your website !!!

  38. Chelsea 15 February 2009 at 8:05 pm #

    8/8. I know my girls. >_

  39. Jeff 18 February 2009 at 3:43 am #

    Look at the eyes and you will see that zooey deschanel looks diffirent than katy perry, Zooey has class and looks Katy doesn’t. Anyone who knows this topic like i do will know pretty blue eyes=Zooey.

  40. Christina 8 March 2009 at 6:50 am #

    post #16 says that the picture on the right is Tayrn Manning but its not. Its a picture of Zooey in the movie Yes Man, when Jim’s character sees her singing on stage for the first time. Just watched the movie last night and I thought it was hilarious, its certainly worth seeing.

  41. JOHNNY 23 March 2009 at 11:02 pm #

    they’re not that different you know,both too cheap to buy any real clothes,both dressed like your mom/grandmother/great grandmother,both are now icons for the girls who used to rely on the olsen twins for trends,both brunnetes.

    and both sucks.

  42. sds 4 April 2009 at 8:39 pm #

    8/8 they look a little alike, but theres the difrence that zooey is god like sexy, while katy looks like a briisth girl who got beated as a child.

    also im a big fan of zooey, and on th last pic katey weares a whore nametag

  43. Keegan 5 April 2009 at 3:55 pm #

    You can tell them apart by their tits =)

  44. Cinex 6 April 2009 at 11:53 am #

    Yeah, that’s confused. When I’ve watched \Yes Man\ movie first time, I’ve though that Katy Perry play main character :) Because I haven’t known Zooey yet.

  45. Lau 23 April 2009 at 11:42 am #

    Zooey Dechanel is much more attractive than katy perry and she doesnt have that voice – you know the voice that makes you want to jump through a plate of glass than listen to her speak.

  46. Joey 3 May 2009 at 10:46 pm #

    Just look at their boobs. I got them all good

  47. Eryn 13 May 2009 at 3:25 am #

    also Katy has brown eyes and zooey has blue

  48. emma 14 May 2009 at 4:56 am #

    they should play sisters in a movie!

  49. RandomPerson 15 May 2009 at 5:28 pm #

    So… I figured the easiest way to tell them apart, at least for the moment. Katy's mouth is shorter and more plump, which is especially clear when they smile. Katy's boobs are bigger too. Finally, Zooey's jawline is slightly more pointed…
    So I did this 'cause I'm supposed to be an artist (implied: should be able to tell people apart based on facial features…) – and at first I felt kinda defeated…
