Russian ten-year-old Kristina Pimenova, often referred to as ‘The most beautiful girl in the world’, has just landed a very lucrative modelling contract with LA Models.
She’s previously been photographed for Vogue Italia, Dolce & Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli and DSquared2, and this marks the official beginning of her modelling career.
In 2008, Kristina started her modelling career – remarkably at the age of three. She’s since become one of the most popular children on the internet with over 1.2 million followers on Instagram, which is run by her mother Glikeriya Pimenova.
The announcement was made via the account when a photo was added with the caption: “So happy to be a part of the family @lamodels” as she posed outside the LA Models studio. She’s also gained 4 million followers on her Facebook page – also run by her mother – as she continues to become renowned around the world.
Kristina has been signed to LA Models’ ‘Youths’ section. Agency owner Heinz Holba said: “To have notoriety in the modelling world at the young age of 10 is not a small feat… the agency is looking forward to having a long-lasting relationship with this little supermodel.”
The talented youngster is also a talented gymnast. Many photographs and videos have been uploaded online throughout her lifetime by her mother, who is married to former Russian international footballer Ruslan Pimenov, who played for his country at the 2002 World Cup.

Child modelling is probably the easiest of all the categories and getting a child into an agency can be relatively easy. This is because agencies that specialise in young models need a huge volume on their books to cover all the ages, types and geographic locations, and to also cover availability.
Patience, confidence and a desire to model are the main factors which determine how successful you’ll be. Child modelling can be financially rewarding and can really kick-start your child’s career going into their adult lives, but it can be incredibly time-consuming and requires patience as a parent/guardian as you’ll have to be with them at all times.
