Albert Einstein certainly had a distinct look.

"Einstein's face is the most recognizable face worldwide," Professor Hanoch Gutfreund, the director of the Einstein Archives at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, told From The Grapevine. "The interest in Einstein does not fade into history. If anything, if one can say anything about this, the interest in Einstein increases with time. It's greater now."

In honor of Einstein's birthday, his American hometown of Princeton held a day-long celebration, which included an Einstein lookalike contest. 22-month-old Armaan Patel, seen in the above photo on the left, won the competition. Below, are more photos from the event.
