An unknown five-year-old from Nigeria is being hailed as the 'most beautiful girl in the world' after a "doll-like" photograph was shared on Instagram.
Social media have heaped praise on the five-year-old girl - calling her "stunning" and a "living doll" after a professional photographer shared her portrait.
Last Friday, photographer Mofe Bamuyiwa posted three photos of the young girl named Jare, saying: “Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel!" and "children are a gift from heaven".
The little girl shows no hint of shyness in the distinctive portraits where she looks straight into the camera and shows off her skillful poses.
Fans gushed over the images on Instagram commenting "simply gorgeous", "soo beautiful" and "absolutely stunning".
Mofe reportedly works as a lifestyle and wedding photographer in Lagos, Nigeria.
Despite Jare's obvious confidence, Mofe told Yahoo Lifestyle: “Jare isn’t a professional model".
She has two sisters - Jomi, 7, and Joba, 10 - who also model and have their own Instagram page.
Although not everyone was a fan.
Some people couldn't believe the images were real and asked if photoshop was used or the girl was given a wig.
