    Nigerian Girl, 5, Dubbed the 'Most Beautiful in the World': 'She's an Angel,' Photographer Says

    A photogenic five-year-old from Nigeria has been dubbed the world’s “most beautiful girl” after portraits of her went viral on social media.

    Official images of Jare Ijalana were shared on Instagram and Twitter by photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa last week. “Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!” the Lagos camerawoman captioned one of the portraits of Jare.

    With piercing eyes, beautiful complexion and gorgeous hair, the child is being revered as “doll-like,” “true work of art” and “absolutely stunning.” The three portraits of Jare have garnered nearly 50,000 likes and thousands of comments on Instagram.

    “I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless!” Bamuyiwa captioned another shot of Jare. “I could have made her smile and make her laugh out loud but I put her in their natural moments for us to see through their eyes!”

    Bamuyiwa added, “Posing them as adults was my trick to create it a timeless portrait! Jare, when you clock 21 remember to do same pose and style.”

    And Jare isn’t the only one in her family to be an up-and-coming model. Her sisters Jomi, 7, and Joba, 10, have also posed for Bamuyiwa’s camera and the siblings are also featured on their family’s social media pages.

    “All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential,” Bamuyiwa told Yahoo Lifestyle on Tuesday. “I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood.”

    The viral “most beautiful girl in the world” movement first started back in the early 2010s after France’s Thylane Blondeau, now 17, was called “the most beautiful girl in the world” at age 6, leading to her photos to be published in Paris Vogue‘s Vogue Enfants years later.

    She's beautiful! But I think that's a wig. Zoom in on the first picture. Wouldn't she have been just as cute with her own hair?

    She is an absolute doll!

    She would be even more gorgeous without that crooked wig on her head.

    Shes definately cute, but Ive seen a dozen like her. She has very basic, common features. Nothing unusually spectacular.

    I'm all for a lil black girl being dubbed most beautiful.

    But something about putting a huge wig on a 5 year old and making her pose like an adult to achieve it has me a lil... But I guess she's 5 so maybe she doesn't fully process it, but it's like you're beautiful if we put a wig on you and make your eyes look kinda ambiguously blueish :ohwell:

    Her and her sisters

    She’s gorgeous!!

    They need to stop with the wigs and weaves on her. She’s looks just as gorgeous with her own hair braided.

    Officially I'm a distant Niko's cousin, like a third cousin twice removed. I'm beyond embarrassed to admit that I didn't realize that she was even wearing a wig until I was reading through the various posts. I was obviously blinded by her beauty.

    So innocent, so precious. I pray she and her sisters will always be confident and proud of who they are, models or not. They are all three, precious beauties who deserve the very best. :yep:

    She is gorgeous. That wig is unnecessary though.

    While this pic is nice and baby girl is of course beautiful.....

    The pic is of a child with a wig on , eyes widened and filters

    Is that necessary

    I have a girl on my timeline with a 10 month old the mother post altered pics of the child every single day ......

    Dear God when I finally saw the child I was so heartbroken for her she has regular eyes and eczema on most of her face ....

    She looks absolutely nothing like the pictures her mother post

    I’m sure she is just as beautiful minus the wig, photoshop and filters. I could barely tell whom she was in the real life pics with her sisters. Smh

    The little girl is pretty and so is that reimagined image of her. Wig, no. Sad times where folks including 'photographers' can't seem to take a picture without some kind of 'beautification' filter, especially on a child.

    She and her sisters are beautiful. And I'm happy a little black was given the title; I'm sure someone in their double wide is seething at the moment.

    Yeah I used to love to follow the black kid pages on IG, but it seems like everybody started filtering the babies to death, then it turned into the mixed with blue eyes baby page. This is a beautiful little girl but I wish the visuals were more like her candids with her sisters.

    All three sisters are striking but I barely recognize the child in the OP photo as the one in the regular candid photo.
