The Internet Is Calling This Girl ‘The Most Beautiful Girl In The World’, But Others Think It’s Wrong

Five-year-old Jare, from Nigeria, has set the internet on fire with her striking looks and has been crowned the ‘most beautiful girl in the world.’ Her photos have put people into a frenzy over her smooth, un-photoshopped skin and luxurious hair, with comments about how “absolutely stunning” and “doll-like” she is.

Jare’s new fame is thanks to lifestyle-and-wedding photographer, Mofe Bamuyiwa, who captured and shared three portraits of the pretty girl on social media for a project, writing “Oh yes she’s human! She’s also an angel! J A R E.”

Even though Jare isn’t a professional model it is evident she could be. After the photographer convinced the beautiful girl’s mother to start an Instagram account, the page took off. It features not only Jare, but her other two equally photogenic sisters Jomi, 7, and Joba, 10. So far their account ‘the_j3_sisters‘ has an impressive 21.6k followers.

The Nigerian beauty is only the most recent ‘most beautiful girl in the world,’ Anna Pavaga, 8, was given the title past December after successfully beginning a modeling career at only three-years-old. But some people didn’t agree with the title. Those who opposed felt it wasn’t right to put kids on social media or compare them. Scroll down below to see Jare’s portraits and people’s reactions. Don’t forget to tell us your opinion!

If you have the "most beautiful" then you must have less beautiful and so on and so on until you get to ugly. Do we really want to do that? Do we want to rate children? Surly ALL children are beautiful because all children are pure , ugliness comes when the world corrupts and destroys a person. Lets just leave the kids alone and stop forcing "beauty" standards on them.

I agree with you completely. I'd just like to add one more reason to why all kids are beautiful → beauty is subjective.

It feels like fetishizing youth.... also objectifying children... it's creepy. If I had a computer full of these images, the FBI would be like "what is this chick up to.

youth has always been worshipped/fetished and always will be - sadly younger people are valued more than older people
