A Russian girl often referred to as "the most beautiful girl in the world" landed a major modeling contract, relocating to Los Angeles to begin her career.
Kristina Pimenova, a 10-year-old who has been modeling since she was three, has become one of the most popular children on the Internet by garnering 1.2 million Instagram followers and nearly four million likes on Facebook
Kristina's mother and former model, Glikeriya Pimenova, runs her social media accounts and lashed out at followers who felt photos of her daughter were provocative — calling them "pedophiles."
"I am certain in my mind all her photographs are absolutely innocent," 40-year-old Glikeriya said.
"You must think like a pedophile in order to see something sexual in these pictures, so it is time for you to see a doctor."
Kristina's new agency, LA Models, released a statement following her signing.
"To have notoriety in the modeling world at the young age of 10 is not a small feat," agency owner Heinz Holba said in the statement.
"The agency is looking forward to having a long-lasting relationship with this little Supermodel [sic]."
