Child model from the city of Perm in Russia’s Urals is hailed by thousands of her fans as “the most beautiful girl in the world.”
Anastasia Knyazeva, the six-year-old Russian child model is being adored for her doll-like features and striking blue eyes.
She is being hailed as the new Thylane Blondeau, now 16, who was famously named the world’s most beautiful girl at the age of six – and became the youngest model to star in French Vogue.
Anastasia has already starred in several advertising campaigns for big Russian brands, including Chobi Kids, and has an incredible 500,000 Instagram followers who marvel at her doll-like features.
Anastasia’s social media account is run by her mum Anna, who has been uploading snaps of her adorable daughter since July 2015, when she was just four years old.
Despite her age, Anastasia maintains a busy schedule as a model and finds the time to regularly update her Instagram account with her latest photoshoots. Updates to her Instagram account, run her by her mother, receive thousands of likes and hundreds of comments by fans from around the world.
Her photos regularly receive comments from adoring fans, who particularly comment on her huge blue eyes.
One wrote on one of her photos: “I think she is the most beautiful girl on the earth.”
Another posted: “What a beautiful eyes.”
Despite the enormous support on Anastasia’s Instagram page, some followers have criticized the child’s mother for allowing her daughter to have a social media account at such a young age.
So how young is too young for children to be exposed to social media? While Instagram accounts for babies and young children are undeniably cute, some experts believe introducing little ones to a world of “likes” could be opening them up to a digital world they didn’t sign up for.
