A model and Instagram influencer was fatally shot by unknown gunmen as she drove through the Iraqi capital on Thursday morning.

Tara Fares, 22, suffered ‘three fatal bullet wounds’ at the wheel of her Porsche convertible while driving through Baghdad’s central Camp Sarah district.

Her death has sent ripples through social media, where she had been building her own personal brand having amassed almost three million followers on Instagram.

Tara’s instagram says her interests are style, beauty and travel. She also had a YouTube channel, where she uploaded makeup tutorials and video blogs

The former beauty queen was taken to Baghdad’s Sheik Zaid hospital at 5.45am local time.

She lived in Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan, and was said to rarely visit Baghdad.

Her death was confirmed by the Iraqi Ministry of the Interior, which announced an investigation has been opened, Kurdistan 24 reported.

It comes not long after two other women involved in the beauty industry were reported murdered in Iraq.
