Thylane Blondeau‘s status as the most-beautiful girl in the world isn’t set to go anywhere. The 18-year-old French model who was spotted at the age of 4 has been carrying around her title since Jean Paul Gaultier cherry-picked her out on the street – the star is now a rising social media sensation alongside being a welcomed face at the recent Miu Miu show in Paris.
Thylane updated her Instagram on Wednesday to let fans know she’s fronting an upcoming issue of Vogue Arabia. Given the Middle-Eastern audience, Blondeau was fairly covered-up, but the shots were nonetheless stunning.
Thylane posted three photos, all from the Vogue Arabia shoot. The opening image showed the brunette photographed close up and knocking the camera dead with a beautifully-made-up face, plus soaking-wet hair parted into mini buns and adorned with a gold and jewel-studded chain working its way across her head.
Blondeau also wore a black ruffled top, plus a gold ring, continuing the glam in the second close-up of her face. The final image showed the beauty posing in a feathered white top with striking blue-and-yellow eyeshadow.
Thylane had taken to her caption to mention the prestigious magazine cover, alongside thanking the team involved.
“Thanks so much @voguearabia !! & Thanks to the whole team in Munich ❤️❤️,” she wrote.
Likes came in fast, with over 21,000 clocked in just 25 minutes. Likewise pouring in were fan comments.
“Un ange,” one fan wrote in French – this directly translates to “an angel.”
“So so beautiful,” another wrote.
“Love love love this editorial! So proud of you!” a third added with heart-eye emoji.
Thylane’s sweet side is a regular deal on her social media – a snap of the model napping and surrounded by soft toys more than confirmed this earlier this year.
Thylane has opened up about her “most beautiful” status – she also doesn’t seem willing to accept the status.
“Firstly: I do not consider myself the most beautiful girl in the world! When I was little, people always told me. But I did not even understand what they meant. Because who says that? Who says I am the most beautiful?” Blondeau told L’officiel, as translated by Unilad. The model then added that she’s shy.
As The Blast has previously documented, Thylane does look up to two famous faces, in particular. She’s a giant fan of sister power duo Gigi and Bella Hadid and has called the 23 and 24-year-old models her “style icons.”
Thylane herself is rising, though. At just 18, the star already fronts French clothing and fragrance brand Cacharel. She’s also walked the runway for designers including Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana. Thylane’s Instagram showcases her style, travels, shoots, and love of Starbucks –for more from Thylane, give her IG a follow.
