Models are supposed to blend into the background and let the clothes grab the attention. But after yesterday’s mini-kerfuffle, in which it was discovered that some glazed-over soul at Style.com had confused photos of Chanel Iman for those of Jourdan Dunn, we were reminded that perhaps mannequins do the job a little too well and fashion insiders can’t tell the girls apart. For shame! So, for the betterment of editors and insiders everywhere, we’ve provided a quick run-down of oft mislabeled girls, some who look alike and others who — well, frankly, we all should know better. Nevertheless, correctly calling these faces can be tricky (especially after a few glasses of champers), and we advise you to carefully study the following faces. —Kendall Herbst
