My current girlfriend strongly resembles my ex-wife. This is going to make them both upset, right?

I've been divorced for four years, have a child and a healthy relationship with my ex-wife. Dating someone for two months now, she likes me, I like her. It seems like we're headed towards an LTR.
My girlfriend is very different from my ex, but I can't deny that when she 'dresses up' they bear a strong resemblance. Strong enough so that I had two people pull me aside to tell me so during a recent social event.
How should I handle this? I would like to continue with my current girlfriend but I can't deny that I'd be uncomfortable if any of the roles were reversed. Neither of them know about this yet.
