Do you ever wonder who would come up if you did a web search for "the most beautiful girl in the world?"

Meet Russian model Kristina Pimenova, who recently moved with her family to Los Angeles to pursue her career as a supermodel. The youngster, who is signed with LA Models and New York Models, was dubbed “The Most Beautiful Girl in the World” by whoever decides these things on the internet.

“To have notoriety in the modeling world at the young age of 10 is not a small feat," said Heinz Holba, owner of LA Models and New York Models in a statement. "The agency is looking forward to having a long-lasting relationship with this little Supermodel."

Pimenova's modeling career actually started several years ago and she has already had fashion campaigns with industry heavyweights such as Armani Junior, Roberto Cavalli Junior, DSquared2, Fendi and D&G. She has also been featured in a number of magazines including Vogue Italia for which she was photographed by Steven Meisel.

Pimenova has more than 5 million followers on social media. Her mother, Glikeriya, manages her various accounts and said she tries to keep her daughter's life as normal as possible.

“Kristina maintains excellent grades in school, and during her off time she is doing the same activities that other children her age do—music, sports, bicycle riding, learning new languages and just enjoying her friends and family," she said.

But really, how normal is it to be the most beautiful girl in the world?
