We all know the proverb which says “beauty is in the eyes of the beholder” but when you are termed the “world’s most beautiful girl” then you must be really beautiful. Such is the story of the adorable 5-year-old Nigerian girl, Jare Ijalana, who rose to prominence in 2018 when her photos hit the internet.
Jare is from Lagos, Nigeria and last year pictures of the dark beauty were taken by a photographer, little did her family know that those pictures will shoot their daughter to the international modeling stage. Dubbed the “new Barbie” Jare has recently been pictured with Princess Ford, the international luxury brand for kids.
Jare looked so stunning and adorable in the pictures shared on her Instagram page as she modeled the luxury clothes from the international brand. Her major features can be seen in each picture, her piercing eyes, mature pose, and flawless chocolate skin.
