By maks in Showbiz On 26th May 2024

Being named the 'most beautiful girl in the world' at only six years old is quite a feat.

Thylane Blondeau, who earned that title, is no longer a little girl but has continued to dazzle the world as she grows up.

Thylane, the French model and actress, was born to a celebrity family—her father is the footballer Patrick Blondeau, and her mother, Veronica Lobbé, is a well-known TV presenter.

Naturally, Thylane has been in the spotlight from an early age.

Her modeling career began early when she was discovered by Jean Paul Gaultier at just three years old.

By four, she was already walking in her first fashion show for the renowned designer.

Her fame soared when she topped TC Candler's '100 Most Beautiful Faces' list in 2007.

Now at 23, Thylane has established herself as a highly successful model.

Additionally, she’s a global ambassador for L’Oreal Paris.

After her rapid rise to fame as a child, many wondered if Thylane would continue modeling.

She's actively engaged with her followers on Instagram, where she has amassed over seven million followers.

Through her posts, she shares glimpses into her life, including behind-the-scenes shots from photoshoots and various public events.

However, Thylane has shared that her early fame wasn’t always easy to grasp. 

In an interview with The Telegraph, she remarked, "People are like, 'You know, you're the most beautiful girl in the world', and you're like, 'I'm not, I'm just playing with my iPad'."

She added, "Even today, people are like, 'You are the most beautiful girl', and I'm like, 'No, I'm still not, I'm just a human being, a teenager.'"

Thylane's experience echoes a broader conversation about the pressures of the fashion industry, especially for young models.

Bella Hadid, another model, discussed the mental health challenges of the industry, particularly around her experience at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.

In a Vogue video, Bella shared: "I was nervous in this dress. I look very sexual and all these things.

"I was still nervous about cameras and nervous about having a lot of makeup on. I kind of get embarrassed of this moment still, even though the dress is gorgeous. 

"It just, again, doesn't feel so much like me, and I think that this was the start of the 'Bella' persona that everyone sees of me. That's my alter ego. That's Belinda."

Thylane’s journey from child prodigy to a matured model highlights not only her growth in the industry but also the personal and professional challenges that come with such early fame.
