Russian child model aged six, Anastasia, is hailed the new Thylane Blondeau

Six-year-olds – an age when most children are into the likes of playing with friends, colouring and watching their favourites movies.

But one little girl of the same age already has a high-profile modelling career, fronting major campaigns in her native Russia.

Anna Knyazeva, who has one brother, has furthermore amassed some 525K followers on Instagram, an account run by Anna’s mother.

The youngster is a successful child model, having starred in a number of campaigns including for Russian brand Chobi Kids.

It comes after Thylane, now 16, 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, who is represented by President Kids Management, who have been wowed by her doll-like features and striking blue eyes.

Anna regularly posts photographs of the six-year-old’s photoshoots, as well as snaps of her backstage.

Each photograph receives hundreds of comments about the youngster’s striking features, from fans as far as Indonesia and Brazil.

One commented:

‘OMG .. I think she is the most beautiful girl on the earth !!’, while another wrote: ‘What a beautiful eyes [sic].’

Another follower posted:

‘She really looks like a doll’, while one added: ‘What a cutie she is.’
Anastasia’s mother has been sharing photos of her little girl since July 2015, when the burgeoning model was four years old.

The youngster has already modelled for major brands in Russia, including Amoreco and Kisabiano.

She was also voted the face of Little Miss Aoki, a line from luxury children’s couture house Mischka Aoki, in October last year.

Some fans have already suggested Anastasia, also known as Anna, could one day take the crown of Russian model Irina Shayk, who rose to fame in 2007 when she became the face of Intimissimi.

Despite the enormous support on Anastasia’s official Instagram page, some have criticised her mother for letting her daughter model, as well as wear makeup, at such a young age.

Previously, French model Thylane Blondeau appeared on the cover of Vogue Enfants at the age of six.

By the age of 10, she starred in a shoot for Vogue Paris – although critics said the editorial was inappropriate and sexualised the youngster.

Thylane is now 16. She has 1.8m followers on Instagram, is signed with modelling agency IMG, and is a brand ambassador for L’Oréal.
