Kristina Pimenova, the child model often referred to in the media ‘the most beautiful girl in the world’, has just landed a huge new contract.
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 Pimenova will be featured on the agencies' 'Youths' sections, her career - which started age three - has caused a lot of controversy.
Critics have often said that the young girl is being sexualised, pointing to comments on her photos referring to her as 'hot' or a 'babe'.
Pimenova's Instagram account, run by her mother - former model - Glikeriya Pimenova, has over 1.2 million followers.
Although the 10-year-old only models children's clothing, and does not appear to be wearing makeup in her photos, the shots often involve her wearing little clothing and copying poses used by adult models.
Her mother also posts personal photos of Pimenova including in bikinis at the beach and in bed.
The 40-year-old has denied claims she is sexualising her daughter, telling MailOnline: "I am certain in my mind all her photographs are absolutely innocent.
"You must think like a paedophile in order to see something sexual in these pictures, so it is time for you to see a doctor."
The daughter of Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis has made waves this year, largely thanks to a great relationship with Karl Lagerfeld, who cast her in both his Autumn/Winter 2015 and Spring/Summer 2016 shows for Chanel. The 16-year-old model and actress made a bold campaign debut in July the face of the French fashion house's new eyewear line, and 2016 will surely see her star status rocket even further.
2015 was undoubtedly Gigi Hadid's year but hot on her heels is little sister Bella. The two appeared in Balmain's sister-themed Autumn/Winter 2015 campaign back in the summer and the move spring-boarded Bella into the limelight. She has really come into her own of late, making her Chanel debut in December for the label's Metiers d'Art 2015/16 show.
Identical twins Ruth and May Bell, 19, have been working as models since they were 16, but get ready to see a lot more of them thanks to Burberry, which cast the pair in its Spring/Summer 2016 campaign. The UK fashion label is notorious for its talent at catapulting new talent to stardom.
Despite being signed by major modeling agency Storm, Kate Moss's little sister Lottie has managed to keep a low profile. Until this month, that is, when the teenager made her debut in Vogue for a shoot alongside Bella Hadid and Kylie Jenner. The magazine revealed that she plans to move to London to model in the near future, meaning her fame factor is surely about to go off the charts.
She may only be 14, but Kaia Gerber, the daughter of the original supermodel Cindy Crawford, is already causing a stir in fashion land. The genetically blessed model hit the headlines this year when she appeared in Carine Roitfeld's CR Fashion Book, and a shoot for the December issue of Teen Vogue has set her on track for a strong 2016.
