This is the face of Alina Yakupova a six year old model, from Russia. The young girl has been dubbed ‘the most beautiful girl in the world’. At six-years-old. Six.

In a fast paced world where beauty seems to be everything, this young model seemingly has the world at her feet. Her first foray into the modelling world began at just 4-years-old, staring in ad campaigns for Gloria Jeans and children’s high end fashion brands, Monnalisa Kids and Yudashkin Kids and now the youngster has a social media following of over 27,000.

The Moscow 6-year-old has recently been featured in Grazia and InStyle magazines.

Alina has a manager who according to news.com.au recently stated “I’m sure that the secret of Alina’s success lies not only in her unearthly beauty, but also in hard work and constant self-development, despite her young age.”

It seems so over the top to have such a young girl being talked about in the modelling world, and of course, now via mainstream media.

Alina’s mother runs her Instagram account which has over 27,000 followers from all over the world.

What do you think of modelling at such a young age? Is it OK, or should we not promote children in a modelling world when they’re so little? SHARE your thoughts with us in the comments below.

  • If anything, I thought that @viola_dima_official would have stolen the crown with 559k followers
    She looks line a mini barbie doll.
    I wonder who dubbed Alina the most beautiful in the world and what it was based on – a poll or just the writer’s thought?


  • So much pressure to grow up with. I enjoy letting my kids be kids, playing and exploring.


  • What a pressure to grow up with.


  • Not a good idea way too young let her have to childhood without so much expectations put on her


  • Children will always model because there are childrens products to sell but this seems over the top and we definitely shouldn’t be labeling or pressuring children.


  • Do hope her teenage years don’t cause her grief – she is certainly a beautiful little girl, but we all change as we grow to adulthood. My fingers are crossed for her – especially in Russia.


  • Putting this label on a child is not healthy.


  • Gosh, that would be an awful thing to live up to as a gawky teenager and a young adult.


  • It is ok as long as they are unaware of all the attention and publicity.


  • I hope this is not too much pressure on this child.


  • I don’t think any child should be exposed to this kind of life and fame.


  • I think it is fine for children to be modelling as long as they are still allowed to be regular children. I don’t really like that this little girl has been called the most beautiful girl in the world, thats too much pressure for a child.


  • I think there is a lot of potential psychological damage that can be caused from telling a child at so young that they are the most beautiful girl in the world. Talk about holding someone to a lifelong standard of perfection.


  • She is cute but I don’t agree with a child having a modelling career or any career. Their childhood is so short and precious enjoy it.


  • She is not the most beautiful girl in the world. She is a cute little child. She should be playing in the sandpit with her friends, doing normal everyday things and have a regular childhood. She deserves that.
