The mother of the “world’s most beautiful girl” is defending the photos of Kristina Pimenova, which many have deemed “provocative.” Glikeriya Pimenova said that anyone who thinks the photos of the 9-year-old girl are sexy, must be a pedophile. The mother, 39, is married to retired Russian football star, Ruslan Pimenov, 34.
Kristina Pimenova is a “supermodel” who had garnered the unofficial title of the “most beautiful girl in the world.” The mother was accused of sexualizing the child after posting photos of the girl wearing “hot pants” and “short shorts” on Instagram and Facebook.
“I do not accept those accusations about sexualization of my child,” Glikeriya Pimenova said during an interview with the Daily Mail. “I am certain in my mind all her photographs are absolutely innocent. I have never asked her to take this or that pose, and in fact, I must say, she does not especially like it when I am photographing her, so I do it quickly and when she doesn’t notice. You must think like a pedophile in order to see something sexual in these pictures, so it is time for you to see a doctor.”
Kristina Pimenova, over the course of the past six years, has been featured in advertisements for Vogue, Armani, Benetton, and Cavalli. The mother of the most beautiful girl in the world maintains that her daughter is simply attracting a lot of attention and that unfortunately, some of that attention is negative.
“Some years ago I posted a picture of little Kristina on the beach in the Maldives hugging her three soft toys and laughing. She was holding all her toys in front of her chest and hugging them, and you know what comments I got to this picture? Oh, she is covering her breasts because she thinks she has something to hide. I think people who post something like this have serious psychological problems.”
Glikeriya Pimenova contends that her daughter is perfectly normal, she is simply beautiful and has a “rare talent” for child modeling. “Until the age of three [Kristina] we lived in France and I was astonished to see the amount of attention she attracted from people who saw her. Kristina really enjoyed such attention but it was only abroad, I am afraid. When we came back to Russia it was a shock for my child.” The mother the most beautiful girl in the world added, “I remember she was sitting in her pram as I pushed her, and she kept smiling to everybody who passed by, nobody cared. She turned to me with purse shock on her face – ‘what’s wrong?’”
After the chilly reception in her Russian town, Glikeriya Pimenova got online and found a modeling agency for her daughter. Just before her fourth birthday, Kristina Pimenova had her first photo shoot. The young girl’s modeling “career exploded” in both Russia and around the globe, according to the mother.
Kristina Pimenova currently has more than 2.1 million Facebook followers. Glikeriya Pimenova also said that the poses of her daughter in short shorts did not garner any negative comments until they were highlighted by the “Western media.” She added, “Why would anybody be unhappy about these shorts? For God’s sake, what else would a child wear in the summer when she is playing badminton? I suggest they sue Robert Cavalli Junior and Mango Kids for making wicked clothes.”
The mother of the most beautiful girl in the world stated that the images of her daughter deemed offensive were from individuals in the West where same-sex marriages are permitted. She was reportedly mystified that “displays of homosexuality” in front of children are considered appropriate in America and parts of Europe, but “innocent” photos of children are attacked.
“I feel sorry when I read comments and conclusions of people who do not know us, who never met us, but take their right to judge me and my daughter, to shout that she does not have a childhood or that this stupid mother is making money. I am here to tell you that we have enough money, that Kristina has a happy childhood – and that I have an honors degree from a university, so I don’t think these accusations stick.”
Kristina Pimenova’s mother said her daughter does three to four photo session per month, the sessions often take place during a single day. The most beautiful girl in the world reportedly considers the experience a fun adventure and a break from her school and gymnastics training routine. According to Glikeriya Pimenova, the young supermodel goes to school and then to four hours of gymnastics training six days per week. Kristina recently took part in the Alina 2013 gymnastics competition in Tatarstan. The event was hosted by former gold-medal winning gymnast Alina Kabayeva.
