Britain’s youngest fashion icon gets a new outfit for free every day because she’s got 60,000 followers on Instagram – aged 18 MONTHS.
Little Avaya Hugo is a massive web star despite not being able to talk – thanks to canny mum Carly Aston.
Carly, 22, has managed to rake in £10,000 worth of freebies for her bouncing baby girl after uploading scores of pictures to the mega-popular image website – and now hopes her six-week-old daughter Aliza can do the same.
The full-time mum, who lives with partner Daniel Hugo, 22, in Gorton, Manchester, regularly gets 3,500 likes on each snap of her little babies – and every day receives new dresses in the post.
In the space of 15 months, Avaya has featured in over a thousand posts and has represented 35 baby brands – and even modelled for the Kardashian Kids.
Now, the tot’s got more than 500 free designer outfits, as well as 50 dummies, bottles and packs of nappies all sent by baby brands.
Carly said: “It’s amazing – Avaya has more outfits in her wardrobe at 18 months than most women collect in a lifetime.
“Some people say I’m being pushy by posting so many pictures of my baby, but I ignore them.
“Avaya’s a naturally happy child and just loves being in front of the camera. It’s no surprise she’s got so many followers – she brings joy to so many people.”
She hopes that Avaya’s six-week-old sister, Aliza, will follow in her older sister’s footsteps.
Stunning Carly added: “Dressing up and posing for pictures is a fun way for us to spend time together.
“Having Insta-famous daughters means we often get recognised when we go out all together with the pram. People have even created fan pages.
“Like any mum I thought my baby was gorgeous, but it was amazing that many people thought so too.
“I thought Daniel might be against it, but he was really supportive – he could see that what I was doing wasn’t harmful or sinister – it was just about celebrating our gorgeous daughter.”
In February the tot was featured on Fashion Kids – an Instagram account which celebrates impeccably dressed children and has over 3 million followers.
Then, in July this year she was sent a sample from the Kardashian sisters’ line of clothing – Kardashian Kids.
Carly added: “I felt like it put Avaya on the map for Instababies.
“Soon, we had 60k followers, and every photo was raking in over a thousand comments.”
“From there, I started getting sent freebie homeware, like photo frames and candles, and other ‘mum staples’, including bottles and dummies – on the understanding that I’d feature them in Avaya’s shoots.
“A few months ago, when I took Avaya on a day out to Blackpool people actually stopped us on the street because they recognised us.
“I felt like we were famous.”
