1Kristina Pimenova (11)
The "most beautiful girl in the world" title came from Women Daily Magazine, and it's stuck ever since. According to her Facebook page, Kristina's been modeling since she was three, likes gymnastics and traveling, and her page has over 4 million likes (!). Her resume is nothing to sneeze at either—she's modeled the children's lines from Fendi and Roberto Cavalli and landed pages in Vogue Bambini. FYI, Kristina wears only children's clothing and rarely rocks makeup. (Source)
2Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau (15)
She is 15 years old now, but only 11 when this photo was taken.
The daughter of French footballer Patrick Blondeau and TV presenter Veronika Loubry, Thylane began modeling at the age of five. But it was Thylane's shoot in Vogue in 2011 that saw her hit the headlines when she became one of the youngest models to ever feature in the magazine and caught everyone's attention with many claiming she was too young to be sexualized.
Now 15, Thylane is represented by IMG Models, the same agency that represents sisters Gigi and Bella Hadid and Cindy Crawford's daughter, Kaia Gerber. (Source)
3Momoka Kurita (13)
Her appearance at the 48th MFJ Grand Prix kickstarted Momoka's modeling career, but it also sparked a heated online debate about age in the industry. Many have argued that dressing a 12-year-old child in a sexy attire and having her participate in an adult event was just wrong. Her detractors blamed her parents, but Momoka claims that nobody forced her into it and her parents are just supportive of her dreams.
Momoka has since been contacted by major companies for work and is currently juggling her studies, modeling gigs, ballet lessons, while somehow finding time for her hobbies of piano, guitar, and gymnastics. She's got a lot on her plate, that's for sure, which has prompted some internet commenters to say she is being robbed of her childhood. (Source)
4Aleksandra Vasic (14)
59-year-old cover girl from Harven magazine
Concerns were raised that the cover was too sexy and should not feature a young girl. Haven owner Keely O'Connor was proud of the picture and said it did not raise red flags for any of the team of eight staff who put the circus-themed issue together.
6Lottie Moss (19)
Her first official shoot was published in Teen Vogue, where she wore a chic red and white striped sweater with a red jacket, followed by her first full editorial in Dazed & Confused not long afterward. (Source)
7Kaia Gerber (15)
Kaia Gerber started modeling when she was just ten years old. She signed to IMG Models at the age of 13, three years ahead of mom Cindy, who was 16. Her first big gig was with designer powerhouse Versace, modeling for their kids' clothing range. Now at 15, Kaia won the coveted Model of the Year at the Front Row Awards. (Source)
8Eva Ionesco (She was 11 when she was featured in Playboy)
She is the youngest model ever to appear in a Playboy nude pictorial and was featured at age 11 in the October 1976 issue of the Italian edition of the magazine in a set by Bourboulon. Another of her nude pictorials, in the November 1978 issue of the Spanish edition of Penthouse, was a selection of her mother's photographs. She made also the cover page of Der Spiegel.
In 2012 Eva sued her mother for taking pornographic photos of her as a child. Although much of her claim was denied, she did receive some compensation. (Source | Photo)
