Detective Budget Babe over here needs a second opinion (or third or fourth...):
If you're a fan of Shopbop.com, then you've no doubt noticed the unmistakable redheaded model on the left. It seems like she's been featured in just about every campaign since the chichi fashion site was acquired by Amazon.com back in '06.
So imagine our surprise when we were surfing around for an anorak and spotted the same model (or someone who we think is the same model) at Sears.com (pictured on the right), a totally unglamorous, complete-opposite-of-Shopbop kind of store.
And therein lies our dilemma: Do you think it's the same person in both shots?
Model mystery aside, we think Shopbop has done a great job at selecting uniquely beautiful models. (The Sears model is absolutely cute as a button, too, and Shopbop should scoop her up—if they haven't already!)

They are definitely the same person! I'm pretty sure in the modeling world "print work" is "print work" no matter what store! Buts its totally the same girl
But they don't look like the same person to me....the only thing that is similar between the two is red hair!
Try picturing the Sears girl not smiling and without freckles...totally the same person in our book!
I think their noses and eyes look to be different shapes... but it could be retouching. Who knows.
According to a couple comments on Fashionista.com, the redhead's name is Elena Mitova.
I saw this girl while I was out shopping in the city one day! It took me a second to realize who she was, and when I did, I felt like a stalker for remembering her. Glad I'm not the only one who finds her distinctive.
