Laila Naim is an actor, singer, dancer and the first Pakistani to model for Burberry. She is also five years old. The London native made an appearance on a Burberry Instagram post last week, when they released images from their childrenswear Spring/Summer 2015 campaign. The photograph of this wide-eyed cutie grinning next to a dimpled tot in a classic Burberry trench has since become the most-liked post on the luxury brand’s account (beating the likes of Cara Delevingne and Kate Moss). “She started singing at three and joined a theatre academy,” Naim’s mother, Sadia Siddiqui, told The Express Tribune. “Laila has always shown a fierce independence, and a very strong will. She has a natural grace about herself.” Might be a good time to remember your booger-eating past.
