Controversial Ten-year-old Russian Model Secures A 'lucrative' Modelling Deal in L.A
Kristina Pimenova, 10, who has been modelling since the age of three and doing catwalk shows since she was four, has more than two million followers on Facebook and over a million on her Instagram. Both accounts, which are managed by her mother, Glikeriya Pimenova, have drawn sexualised remarks from followers who sometimes comment on Kristina's legs or refer to the child as 'a babe'.
LA Models has signed Kristina for its 'Youths' section. Agency owner Heinz Holba said in a press release: 'To have notoriety in the modelling world at the young age of 10 is not a small feat.' 'We are looking forward to having a long-lasting relationship with this little Supermodel.'
Kristina has already had an enviable career having graced the cover of Vogue Bambini when she was seven and been the face of Roberto Cavalli, Dolce & Gabbana, Armani and Benetton, among others.
