If you’re not familiar with Linnya Grace, you should take note because she has a bright future ahead of her. The teenage model was born in San Francisco, California in 2004. When she was just three years old, her father took some photos of her and submitted them to Ford Models. Soon after, the agency contacted her parents and arranged a meeting with little Linnya. When they arrived at the Ford offices in San Francisco, a contract was already waiting for her.

It didn’t take long for Linnya Grace to land her first job with the department store Macy’s. Sadly, it was short-lived because a few years later, Ford got rid of its children’s division, and Linnya had to take an unwilling break from modeling. During that time, she got braces on her teeth and prepared for her comeback. She signed with a new agency called JE, had her braces removed, and hasn’t looked back since. Linnya has worked with Ralph Lauren, Old Navy, and was even featured in the Avicii “Wake Me Up” music video.

So, what has Linnya been up to these days? The now 13-year-old model is headed to 8th grade and still modeling. She’s currently signed with Wilhelmina Models and has an impressive following on social media. In contrast, you may have heard of Sharbat Gula.


You may not recognize the name Sharbat Gula, but there’s a good chance you’ve seen her face. In 1984, National Geographic photographer Steve McCurry took a photo of Gula when she was a schoolgirl outside a refugee camp in Pakistan. She gave him permission to take her picture, and the stunning portrait made the front cover of National Geographic in June 1985. For the next 17 years, she would be known as the “Afghan Girl.” The world was captivated by her beautiful green eyes, and everyone wondered what had become of the striking child.

In 2002, McCurry went on a mission to find Gula and returned to the refugee camp where he had taken her photo. Someone recognized the picture and led McCurry and his team to Gula. The little girl had clearly grown up – just look at the difference! She remembered the day he took her picture and claimed that it upset her that a stranger had taken her photo, and it was the first and only picture of her until 2012.

Gula comes from a war-torn area and has had a difficult life. In 2016, she was arrested for illegally attempting to obtain a Pakistani identification card. Meanwhile, Anastasia Bezrucova had achieved quite a lot by the time she was…


By the time she was eight years old, Anastasia Bezrukova was already a well-known model in Russia. Despite her young age, she had an extensive portfolio that showcased her incredible versatility, including glamour, lifestyle, fashion, beauty, and sports shoots. She even landed impressive fashion campaigns with labels like Armani and was featured in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar. With her mature looks, it’s hard to believe that Bezrukova was only eight when she graced the cover of Baby Marlin magazine. Now, at 13 years old, she is pursuing an acting career in Russia and has already made a name for herself in the Russian release of “After You’re Gone” as Kiera. As she continues to hone her craft, we can expect to see more from this talented and beautiful young lady. And Turner Cook? You’ve seen her…

From there, she starred as Murph Cooper, Matthew McConaughey’s daughter in Interstellar. These roles pretty much cemented her fate as a Hollywood star.

Jade Weber is a young model who is starting to gain popularity in the United States. Born in Hong Kong in 2005, not much is known about her parents except that she is of French descent and was raised by her two older brothers, Matt Tier and Tebow. Despite her young age, Weber has an impressive modeling resume, having worked with brands like Levi’s, Old Navy, and Shoshobella as a child. Her family has since moved to Los Angeles, where she is now modeling for LA Model’s youth division and has landed deals with H&M, Forever 21, and Abercrombie & Fitch. Some may recognize her from Hayden Summerall’s cover video of The Weeknd’s “Can’t Feel My Face” when she was just 10 years old. At 12 years old, Weber is now acting and traveling the world as a model and has a strong following on Instagram. Only time will tell if she will become a household name in the future.


Do you recognize Fatima Pettacheck from her photos? She’s a sweet girl, isn’t she? Did you know that she is the voice of Dora from “Dora the Explorer”? Now at 17 years old, she is a high school student in New York City who tries to maintain a normal life despite her famous voice. In addition to her career as a voiceover artist, she walks her dog, does chores, goes to gymnastics, and spends quality time with her family. It sounds pretty exhausting, doesn’t it? In her downtime, she likes to read and often reads herself to sleep. Despite her busy schedule, she seems to be handling everything well, until she got into a little bit of trouble at school in 2016. She was caught smoking from a water vapor pipe in a high school bathroom with a friend. Although nothing illegal was found in the pipe, she and her friend were still disciplined. Pettacheck was suspended for three days, and her friend was expelled from the exclusive school. Hopefully, they both learned their lessons.


Out of all the beautiful children on this list, Diana Pentovich may be the least recognizable, unless you are a huge fan of fashion. This Russian beauty was born in 2004 but didn’t start modeling until a bit later, when she was seven years old. Pentovich was well on her way to a modeling career. It all happened by accident: Pentovich’s mother registered amateur photos of the child modeling to a fashion website for children. It didn’t take long for photographers to show interest in working with the beautiful little girl. She did some test photo shoots and was able to sign with a modeling agency in Russia. The rest is history. The young girl was considered one of Russia’s top 10 most beautiful child models. She has done a little bit of growing in the six years since her discovery, but now as a 13-year-old, she is still very gorgeous and working with some major fashion publications like Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. Just look at her gorgeous long hair – she is really growing into a beautiful young woman. Considering she started so young, we hope she doesn’t grow tired of the industry. All we can say is that she is stunning and has a long career ahead of her if she keeps it up.

Joey King

Joey King – You may already know the grown-up version of Joey King, but did you know she started acting at the age of four? Did you also know that she happened to be one of the cutest kids ever? Before her time on the big screen, King acted in over 100 commercials as a child. Thanks to her natural talent and calmness behind the camera, King was able to transition from commercial work to film acting. The world first got a taste of her acting chops when she was a guest star on Disney’s The Suite Life of Zack and Cody. King was only 7 years old at that time, and she caught the acting bug. In the following years, she has become a bonafide TV and movie star. She has also grown into a beautiful young woman at the age of 17. Her most notable roles are that of Ramona Quimby in Ramona and Beezus, as well as Greta Grimly in the Fargo TV series. The actress is keeping herself busy filming in South Africa for the upcoming The Kissing Booth movie. She is also set to star in the 2018 Slenderman movie. Let’s just say she is one of the only child stars who has been able to transition into adult stardom.


Since the age of four, Christina Pimanova has been turning the fashion industry on its head. It’s no surprise considering she is the daughter of a Russian model. Christina was introduced to fashion at a young age by accompanying her mother to photo shoots. Photographers quickly took notice of the adorable child and started taking pictures of her. The pictures turned out fantastic, and before long, she began her modeling career. She has worked with renowned brands such as Vogue Bambini, Roberto Cavalli, and Benton. However, with the title of “the most beautiful child in the world” comes controversy. Internet users were upset when Pimanova’s mother posted bikini photos of the underage girl on her Instagram account. Nevertheless, her mother stood by her decision, calling the critics “sick.” Now 12 years old, Christina lives in Los Angeles and has signed a contract with LA Models. She travels the world modeling and is grateful for the experience. Despite her success, she still leads the life of an average tween girl.
