With over three million followers on social media, and a CV more impressive than models three times her age, Kristina Pimenova is on her way to supermodel status.
The Russian born beauty, who has been modelling since the age of three, has just landed the holy grail of modelling contracts. The 10-year-old, who has starred in fashion campaigns for Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli, has signed a deal with LA Models and New York Model Management.
Although still signed to the 'Youth' section, Pimenova is often pictured on her Instagram account in adult poses. With most images attracting comments such as "sexy" or "babe". Critics claim that she has been too-sexualised.
Her mother, former model Glikeriya Pimenova, insists that her daughter doesn't wear make-up in pictures and only models children's clothing. Glikeriya also runs her daughter's social media accounts.
