A stylish tot has a career as a fashion influencer many women would dream of – and she’s just 17-months-old.
Suela Gilaj, 26, who lives with her 28-year-old self employed husband Fabian, in Wandsworth, southwest London, set up an Instagram page for her daughter Azalea Elezaj, after becoming obsessed with dressing the adorable tot in designer clothing – with some of the pieces matching her personal wardrobe.
Self-proclaimed designer junkie Suela, has spent over £5,000 on kitting out Azalea’s wardrobe with designer brands including Gucci, Versace, Burberry and Givenchy.
The tiny tot who loves being dressed from head to toe in designer gear by her mum and then posing for stunning photos, has attracted over 13,000 followers – and she’s already received brand deals as she models the clothes for her social media page.

Suela loves posing up her daughter for pictures, with each post reaching more than 20,000 people at a time – and Azalea even has her own fan page set up.
However, the full-time mother has faced backlash over some of the posts, with users arguing she is using her child for fame and shouldn’t be dressing her in such expensive items.
Suela has hit back at cruel trolls who tell her she’s not letting her daughter have a normal childhood, although she admits to worrying what the tot will think when she grows up.
‘I try to dress Azalea how I like to dress – when I see her, I see myself so I try my best to make her a mini me,’ explained Suela.
Suela says a lot of the designer clothes Azalea (pictured) wears are either gifted or bought in the sale

Suela says she’s received comments from people telling her not to dress Azalea (pictured) the way that she does
The 26-year-old says people assume Azalea (pictured) doesn’t have a normal ‘baby’ life, but she does
‘She’s a very smiley, happy baby and loves posing up for photoshoots, but sometimes she isn’t always in the mood.
‘The reason people follow her is because she’s so stylish and they love to see what she’s wearing.
‘Clothing brands always reach out to her and send her nice gifts for her to model – a lot of the designer clothes she wears are either gifted or bought in the sale.
She continued: ‘I’m scared that she will not be happy when she’s older that I have done this but I hope she will thank me as I’m just trying to do the best for her and set her up for the future.
Suela doesn’t show Azalea’s (pictured) normal ‘baby’ life on Instagram, but insists she is always playing and having fun

Suela says people think it’s a waste of money that she buys designer goods for her daughter (pictured), but she argues it’s her choice
‘I get comments from people telling me to not dress her the way I do but she’s my baby and I can decide what’s best for her. I just delete them. It’s not doing any harm at all.’
‘People think she doesn’t have a normal ‘baby’ life but she does – I just don’t show those parts on Instagram but she’s very happy and is always playing and having fun’.
‘When I post pictures of her sleeping, people will sometimes tell me to leave her alone and let her sleep.
‘People tell me how I should dress my own daughter and how it’s a waste of money to buy her these nice things but it’s my choice.
Suela reveals that most of the negative comments come from when she posts videos of Azalea (pictured) in her clothes
Suela says behind the scenes Azalea (pictured) is just like any other baby, but people don’t see those moments
‘I mostly get negative comments when I post videos showing Azalea in her clothes because people will tell me to just let her be a baby but they don’t see behind the scenes – she’s just like any other baby.
‘When I was pregnant, I never had the idea of making her her own Instagram account but she’s such a cute, stylish baby that I felt I had no choice but to do it.
‘I do my best to mother my baby and I think I’m doing the best for her – some might disagree because they think it’s wrong to put a baby on Instagram but I don’t pay attention to those comments.’
