Nine-year-old Kristina Pimenova has been modelling since the age of three.

Kristina from Moscow, Russia has a number of social media accounts run by her mother and with over two million Facebook fans and 300,000 Instagram followers, the little girl has a large fan base.

In addition to these fans, there are also critics who say Kristina, who has been referred to as “the most beautiful girl in the world”, is being sexualised.

Instagram comments on some of her photos have referred to her as a “babe” and commented on her “long legs”.

Facebook users have also voiced their opinions with one user commenting:  “This is so wrong. Yes she’s a model but this dress is not for a girl her age”.

Kristina’s mother regularly updates her daughter’s social media accounts

Kristina’s mother Glikeriya Shirokova, a former model, manages her daughter’s career.

Glikeriya regularly updates her daughter’s various accounts with new photos and the child’s Instagram page reads that “Kristina DOES NOT post on the internet”.

The “about” section of Kristina’s Facebook page says that Kristina “first got started in modelling when she was 3 years old, anywhere her mom would go, people would tell her how adorable Kristina was and tell her to try modelling.

“Her mom decided to try it out and Kristie soon realised how much fun it was, especially catwalk and fashion shows. She’s been having a blast ever since and is still loving every minute of it!”
