A TikTok account has gone viral for remodelling your favourite female celebrities into what they would look like as the opposite gender. Account holder @babysbella, who mainly makes edited clips of supermodel Bella Hadid, has amassed millions of views for her incredibly realistic creations. Here are ten of her latest makes:

Bella Hadid

With over two million views, this appears to be by far the most popular creation—granted it is a Bella Hadid fan account but still. The male presenting version of everyone’s favourite ‘it’ girl of the moment has commenters swooning over the flowing curly locks and piercing eyes. With comparisons to Keanu Reeves, Sirius Black and Jesus Christ himself, users are ‘falling in love with a man who doesn’t exist’ in the TikToker’s creation. But it doesn’t end here. Following the popularity of Hadid’s transformation into the opposite gender, fans demanded more male versions of their favourite celebrities.

Zendaya

It’s no surprise that one of the most popular requests was none other than Zendaya. Switching out her usual flowing locks, male Zendaya debuts a buzzcut and just the right amount of facial hair—a Zayn Malik doppelgänger for sure. Though it seems the actress can pull off any look—I mean, it’s Zendayait appears that her male alter ego is not a hit with the internet. But what do you think? Hot or not? Either way, he definitely looks like a fellow Euphoria kid.

Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa, or humorously called ‘Duo’ Lipa by one user, falls in line with the same brooding looks of male Hadid. Curly long locks and ample facial hair have Lipa looking incredibly realistic as the opposite gender—basically she makes a really good looking man.

Hailey Bieber

Hailey Bieber’s—who is in the midst of launching her own skincare line—debut as a man had the comment section in a frenzy of comparison. With blonde highlights, defined bone structure, a slim frame and of course a beard, Bieber’s transformation has people gawking at the similarities between her male ego and her own husband. Though for us, there is no doubt she marks a stunning resemblance with her actor father Stephen Baldwin. Perhaps that’s where she gets her model looks from?

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish’s (or ‘Bill’ Eilish as some people put it) scarily accurate opposite gender transformation gives us mixed feelings…

Kylie Jenner

Of course, none other would make the list than Kylie Jenner. An incredibly popular request made by commenters willed the TikTok creator to fashion the billionaire makeup mogul as male presenting. Loose, wavy, short brunette locks, clear skin and a wider jaw are the distinct features of a male Jenner. Described as a combination of brother Brody Jenner and Joshua Bassett, Jenner’s male metamorphosis had people gushing over the unique look.

Selena Gomez

Dark curly hair and piercing eyes seems to be all the rage as Selena Gomez’s transformation mirrors both Lipa’s and Hadid’s tall, dark and handsome look. A Kit Harrington and Ben Barnes love child.

Gigi Hadid

Following the popularity of her younger sister’s transformation, Gigi Hadid also had a moment in her male shoes. With a lighter, ginger-y note in hair tone, the eldest Hadid’s male version is proving not as popular as her younger sister. Some described male Gigi as a mix between a “Soundcloud rapper” and a “Reddit mod” while others celebrated the enhanced Palestinian features that surfaced in her alteration. What was clear was how ‘athletic’ she appeared to users, reminiscent of many footballers and fighters, Hadid gave people ‘blokecore’.

We got Bella Jesus and now we have Judas Jenner,” one user wrote in response to Kendall Jenner’s male alter ego, and we have to agree.
