The mother of a child supermodel dubbed 'the most beautiful girl in the world' has attacked 'paedophiles' who say she is sexualising her daughter by posting provocative pictures of her. Kristina Pimenova is just nine years old but has become a worldwide sensation after pictures of her triggered a storm of criticism on Facebook and Instagram. Today her mother Glikeriya Pimenova, who runs the social media accounts and posted the pictures, hit back in an exclusive interview with MailOnline, saying: 'I do not accept those accusations about sexualisation of my child. 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.
It had all these pictures of celebrities on their winter holidays in St Barts in bikinis and their different body parts were picked out with red circles highlighting their muffin tops and their cellulite and I looked over at the next table and there was a girl eating a muffin. It was just incredibly vivid so I got out my notebook and started writing. Many women make a correlation between moral worth and weight and I really wanted to explore that. This is a healthy and positive way to be a girl. Her books are equally unflinching about life in the social media age.
