Kristina Pimenova, who has been modelling since the age of three, had to miss out on Barcelona fashion week after "bureaucratic errors" prevented her from taking to the catwalk.

Considered by many to be "the most beautiful girl in the world", child model Kristina Pimenova had to watch from the front row rather than take part in 080 Barcelona Fashion, the city’s Autumn/Winter season fashion week.

She had been booked to model for children’s brand, Cóndor, according to Barcelona daily, La Vanguardia, but instead had to watch the other child models from the front row.

Born in Moscow in 2005, Pimenova has an impressive CV for such a young age, having already modelled for brands such as Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Roberto Cavalli. She was christened "the most beautiful girl in the world" by Women Daily Magazine, a moniker that has stuck ever since.

She has appeared in the pages of Vogue Bambini and has her own Instagram account, managed by her mother, that includes photographs taken from fashion shoots, as well as more casual shots.

Cóndor, a Catalan brand founded in 1898, is famous for its socks and leotards, and launched its children’s fashion range eight years ago. The range features fashion for children from 0-12 years old.
