If you haven’t heard of Thylane Blondeau, that’s all about to change – fast. Dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” by global media when she was a child model, Thylane is now 16, and looks set to dominate the industry.
But what is it about the French babe that makes her more than just another model? Here’s everything you need to know…
Thylane is signed to IMG Models
That’s only the same agency as Gigi and Bella Hadid, Hailey Baldwin and a whole host of Victoria’s Secret Angels, so you know Thylane’s going to be big.
She’s been splitting her time between walking the runway and sitting front row
This past fashion month Thylane attended the Gigi Hadid x Tommy Hilfiger show at London Fashion Week, and Michael Kors’ New York show. The season before, she walked for Dolce & Gabbana in Milan, her second appearance for the brand. And, let’s not forget, Thylane made her runway debut walking for Jean Paul Gaultier at age four.
Thylane is a brand ambassador for L’Oréal Paris
And no wonder with hair and skin like hers! Imagine all the free products she must get…
While Thylane is based in the South of France, her career has taken her all around the world, and she’s a big fan of London and Los Angeles. She recently tweeted, “I think that AIRPLANES are my new home,” and she’s probably right.
Her parents are also in the public eye
Her dad, Patrick Blondeau, is a former footballer and Thylane’s mum, Véronika Loubry, is a TV host. Strong genes. Thylane told W Magazine that her parents have taught her to “always be [herself],” adding, “My mum is always with me and I’m constantly consulting her.”
She has a few famous friends
Thylane is tight with Daniel Day-Lewis’ musician son Gabriel-Kane, plus fellow model Barbara Palvin and even Zendaya, with whom she starred in a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.
She’s a Belieber
Nuff said. Follow Thylane on Instagram @thylaneblondeau and watch her star continue to rise.
