Viral Gradient app reveals what celeb you look like – and the Kardashians are loving it

World News

A NEW app that creates hilarious "transition" photos between two lookalike celebs is taking Instagram by storm.

The Kardashians have already been posting selfies of who they look like.


To use the app, you need to upload a selfie of yourself.

Gradient will then trawl an archive of celebrity faces to find out who you most look like.

Once it's found a close enough match, it'll create a four-image transition grid.

This reveals what you'd look like if you were crossed with your lookalike celeb.



Kim Kardashian tried it and got a match with dark-haired singer and actress Cher, while sister Kourtney got Audrey Hepburn.

And blonde Khloe got a match with late model Anna Nicole Smith.

Kylie Jenner was matched up with her sis Kendall, as well as her bessie Stassie Baby.

Scott Disick ended up matching with himself – but he also got Brad Pitt and Jared Leto. Not bad.

It's worth noting that all of the Kardashian posts about Gradient are tagged up with #Ad.

That means they were paid to post about the new app.

But even if the Kardashians don't really love Gradient, it's still a very funny app.


The app is called Gradient Photo Editor on both the iOS and Android App Stores.

But be careful when downloading it and uploading your selfies, as you don't know where they'll end up.

Gradient is made by an unknown developer called Ticket To The Moon, who appears to have released no other apps.

Viral selfie app FaceApp sparked privacy fears last year after being linked to Russian spying.

In other news, creepy apps are getting smarter.

Last year, The Sun reported on how online pervs were using a computer app called "deepfakes" to create fake porn videos.

Users simply needed to feed the app hundreds of photos of a celeb's face – and an XXX film – and then sit back and wait for an algorithm to create a convincing sex tape using the images.

The Sun also revealed how sickos were using childhood photos of actress Emma Watson to create fake sex tapes.
