  • Fashion

A six-year-old from Russia has been hailed the 'most beautiful girl in the world' - following in the footsteps of French model Thylane Blondeau.

Anastasia Knyazeva has already amassed a legion of fans online, who have been wowed by her doll-like features and striking blue eyes.

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, has amassed over 500,000 followers on her Instagram account, which is run by her mother Anna.

She 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.

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

Another follower posted 'She really looks like a doll', while one added: 'What a cutie she is.'

French model Thylane Blondeau, who is the daughter of footballer Patrick Blondeau, was famously called the most beautiful girl in the world after appearing on the cover of Vogue Enfants at the age of six.

In 2011, at the age of 10, she posed for an issue of Vogue Paris in a shoot that provoked controversy, with critics suggesting it sexualised the youngster.

Thylane is now signed with modelling agency IMG, is a brand ambassador for L'Oréal, and has been named the face of a perfume by French designer Lolita Lempicka.

The model appeared on the front row at a number of shows during fashion week, as well as walking the catwalk for Dolce & Gabanna in Milan.

The beauty recently confessed the most valuable piece of advice her famous parents gave her was to 'always be herself'.

'My mum is always with me, and I'm always consulting her,' she explained to W magazine.
