Lucy and Maria Aylmer are about as close as two twin sisters can get, but you’d never guess it just from looking at them – Lucy has fair skin and straight red hair while her sister has dark, curly hair and dark skin. The two girls, both from Gloucester, U.K., were born to a Caucasian father and a half-Jamaican mother.
“No-one ever believes we are twins because I am white and Maria is black,” Lucy said. “Even when we dress alike, we still don’t even look like sisters, let alone twins. When we’ve met friends for the first time they never believe we are twins and they have even made us produce our birth certificates to prove that we are actually twins.“
Lucy studies art and design while Maria studies law and psychology
