Is this the new Kate Moss?

We take a closer look at US model Natalie Morris

Natalie Morris burst onto our radar earlier this week when we were forced to do a double take of the young model spotted wearing an identical outfit to Kate Moss on the set of a campaign shoot in London.

Since being commissioned as Kate Moss's body double is no mean feat, here's a closer look at the US model's superstar credentials.

Signed to Storm - the agency that looks after British models Cara Delevingne, Jourdan Dunn and Moss - the American beauty has already scored assignments for Nike, House of 11 and Dream Girls. Her acting skills can also be scouted in US comedy Good Luck Chuck, and television shows, Smallville and Portlandia .

The fashion sleuths over at Vogue used their detective skills to work to track Morris down, and unearthed the following Moss-Morris similarities:

1. A keen interest in music: Morris appeared in Enrique Iglesias's music video Finally Found You, while Moss has lent her looks to the videos of the White Stripes and George Michael.

2. The vital statistics: the girls share a 5"8 stature - considered short in the modelling world.

OK, admittedly it's not a very long list... It's fair to say she probably got the gig because she looks just as sassy as Moss in Stuart Weitzman's knee-high boots.

One thing the pair certainly don't have in common is their lifestyle. While the Portland model claims that 'candy and proscuitto' are her biggest weaknesses, Moss is still the party queen she was at Morris's age, living it up until 5am after this week's Serpentine Summer Party. And, well, the less said about the notorious 'incident' which landed her the nickname 'Cocaine Kate', the better - that was a different sort of candy addiction altogether...

No, clean-cut Morris prefers posting pictures of herself at the gym and moaning about the perils of M&M chocolates when grocery shopping, proving that, for better or for worse, there's far more to being Kate Moss than just slipping on her boots.
