This Stunning Model Is Taking Instagram By Storm, But There's Something Strange About Her.

There's a lot more to being a model than just standing there, posing, and looking all pretty. You have to know when to smile, but not too much, and know how to look fierce. You'll have to work it in front of the camera as well as on the runway. Being camera ready and flawless is part of the job so that photos come out impeccable with a little help from filters and Photoshop. Many people criticize models and photographers like Cameron-James Wilson for using filters to create a false illusion online. In the end, it's not always easy for us to accept the truth that's right in front of us. Just ask Instagram model Shudu, who is so seemingly perfect that you'll start to question everything.

This is model, Shudu, and her flawless, glistening skin is as impressive as that beautiful pink dress.

Most of us would dare say that Shudu, who has over 41,000 Instagram followers, is out of this world, and that's not even the half of it. There's something so unique about her that you just can't put your finger on it.

Shudu's Insta-feed is often accompanied by the hashtag #melanin because of her impeccable dark skin.

Her editorial images have caught the attention of many, especially when she wore the Saw-C lipstick shade. Her photos were even reported on Fenty Beauty's Instagram page, which is singer Rihanna's online cosmetics store.

There's something hypnotically beautiful about Shudu that just screams perfection!

As beautiful as models are, nobody's perfect, but Shudu seems to be the exception. Then again, there's always a trick. But it's not merely a filtered effect or digital editing that makes Shudu who she is. She looks this way thanks to her photographer Cameron-James Wilson.

If something is too good to be true, then chances are that it is. And this applies to Shudu.

It turns out that Shudu isn't a real woman. Actually, she's not a real anything! Everything about her is CGI! London-based photographer James Wilson calls Shudu his "creation." Adding that it's the latest art piece that he's been working on.

Although Shudu is not an actual living, breathing model, she knows how to represent.

Wilson wanted to create a CGI model that would represent dark skin models, a movement in the modeling industry that will surely inspire real flesh and blood beauties to show off their dark skin as well. Wilson was inspired by the "Princess of South Africa," Barbie doll.
