Comparing a woman to a dog is generally not a way to earn her favor.

But in the case of Kimchee the Maltipoo, we may have found found an exception.

You see Kimchee, who has an Instagram feed with over 6,300 followers, recently struck a pose that reminded some of the "Big Little Lies" and "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" star Laura Dern.

Margaret Lyons, a writer for The New York Times, was the first to point out the resemblance.

Just look at those long, flowing blonde locks, with a strand strategically draped over one eye?

And here Kimchee is with a little Photoshop, her hair colored to look like Dern's "Star Wars" character Vice Admiral Holdo:

Even so, we're not going to just say an Emmy- and Golden Globe-award winning actress has a canine appeal —

OK, unless she agrees with us. Then it's totally cool.

Laura Dern and Kimchee, we love you both!
