Meet Jare Ijalana, a 6-year-old girl whose photoshoot went viral on Instagram.
A photogenic 6-year-old girl from Nigeria has been touted as the world’s “most beautiful girl” after her pictures went viral on Instagram. Jare Ijalana has some truly striking features and Lagos-based photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa shared some of her stunning pictures with the world and we are in awe. Hence it comes as no surprise that her images went viral and garnered thousands of likes on Instagram.
Official images of Ijalana were shared on Instagram and Twitter. The photographer captioned one of her images writing, "Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!” She has been called a real-life Barbie for her piercing eyes coupled with her beautiful complexion and gorgeous hair. Bamuyawi captioned another one of her photos writing, "I want to portray the interception between her childhood and adulthood so both stay timeless!”
Another picture of the 6-year-old girl reads, "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! Posing them as adults were my trick to create a timeless portrait! Jare, when you clock 21 remember to do the same pose and style.”
According to a report by Yahoo Lifestyle, after her daughter's images went viral, her mother started an Instagram page that also introduced her two other daughters, Jomi, 7, and Joba, 10. The page named J3 sisters has already become popular and has over 164,000 followers. Ijalana is not a professional model. Bamuyawi said, "All I want is for everyone to see Jare’s powerful potential. … I want the photo to speak to her when she has reached her adulthood."
Looking at these gorgeous portraits, I have no doubt that Ijalana seems to have a bright future ahead of her if she chooses modeling as her career. But she isn't the only child who is blessed with good genes. Her elder sisters, who were also photographed by Bamuyawi, are also equally beautiful. The photographer captioned one of the pictures writing, "Asides [sic] that [Jomi] is bright and beautiful, she is very coordinated and every pose directed, she did better than I told her to do. She definitely has buttressed and given me more proof that every little girl dreams of being a woman."
Before her, the now seventeen-year-old model Thylane Blondeau was titled as “the most beautiful girl in the world” after her photos published in Vogue Enfants went viral. At the age of 6, she was known to be the most beautiful girl in the world and has walked the runway for many years. After Blondeau, a 6-year-old Russian model named Anastasia Knyazeva wore the crown of the most beautiful girl in the world.
