‘Most Beautiful Girl In The World’ Thylane Blondeau Is Grown Up And Launching A Clothing Line

by Angela Andaloro

Thylane Blondeau has been modeling almost all her life. While you might not know her by name, there’s no way you can forget her striking face.

At just 6 years old, Thylane was unofficially dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” — a hefty title for such a young girl. But Thylane was never any stranger to fame. Her father is former international soccer player Patrick Blondeau, and her mom is French actress Véronika Loubry.

Thylane began working as a model at age 4. Since then, she’s racked up countless gigs, both runway and print. Now the young beauty is all grown up, and at 17, she’s signed to IMG Models.

Though she’s best known for the photo that catapulted her to fame, Thylane is more than just a model. She’s also interested in acting and music. In addition, she’s gained quite a large following online, with a big presence on Instagram and YouTube.

Now Thylane is adding businesswoman to her impressive resume, with the recent announcement that she’s starting her own clothing line.

Most people recognize Thylane from this famous photo of her at age 6. It’s when the buzz about her being the “most beautiful girl” first began.

But it wasn’t the first time Thylane caught the public’s attention.

She’d previously walked the Jean Paul Gaultier runway when she was just 4 years old — her runway debut!

There was some controversy surrounding Thylane as a child model at the age of 10, when she posed in some very grown-up looking shots in Vogue Enfants.

Critics worried she was being sexualized too much as a child.

Despite the controversy, Thylane continued modeling throughout her teens. Now 17, she is represented by IMG Models.

Since signing to IMG, she’s done some very high-profile work. She even walked in Dolce & Gabbana’s 2017 spring/summer show alongside Cindy Crawford’s son Presley Gerber and Zendaya.

She’s also a brand ambassador for L’Oréal, a gig that has landed her appearances at Cannes.

Thylane often gets mistaken for model Barbara Palvin, whom many know as Dylan Sprouse’s girlfriend. The two often joke that they’re twins.

But modeling isn’t the only thing that interests Thylane. She’s also a musician and actress.

Now Thylane is trying on another job for size: fashion designer.

Thylane took to her Instagram, which boasts 2.4 million followers, to announce that after a year of work, her clothing line is almost ready for its debut.

Heaven May Clothing will be Thylane’s first attempt at working in the fashion industry from the other side of things.

The Heaven May Instagram is already generating lots of buzz, with Thylane flawlessly modeling some of the designs in sneak-peek shots.

The athleisure line seems to fuse comfy and cool, perfect for the laid-back girl who still likes to look good.

Heaven May’s website doesn’t have any further information quite yet, but its Instagram has already amassed over 12,000 followers since the announcement.

It’s clear that Thylane’s many fans are eager to see what she’s come up with. In this day and age, where Instagram inspires the style choices of so many, we see lots of success in her future as a fashion designer!
