Binocular diplopia is a condition resulting from the misalignment of the eyes. Double vision as it is more commonly known is an especially debilitating condition, which thankfully is not basis for this story running in the July 2017 issue of Vogue Italia featuring Lia Pavlova and Odette Pavlova. Nope, these Russian sisters are simply twins and yet to the untrained eye they are nigh impossible to distinguish. No matter, this beauty story titled “Doppio Sogno” (double dream) by photographer Barbara Probst and makeup artist Fulvia Farolfi delights in obliterating difference between the two. In case readers are not sure by the opening photo of the sisters (pictured) wearing Chanel, that is Lia on the left and Odette on the right.
