Hair and all.

Dolores became famous two years ago after Vázquez shared a photo of her on Instagram.

“Dolores was going to her farm to pick some cabbages,” Vasquez explained in an interview with the Spanish-language publication Faro de Vigo. “So I talked with her for a while, while a girlfriend was taking pictures of her, and I took the opportunity to take another photo with my cellphone.

Vasquez posted the photo on Instagram, not at all noticing Antelo’s resemblance to the president of the United States. It didn’t take long for other people to though and within days the photo went viral. It was liked being over 8,000 times and shared on other platforms over 4,700 times.
