Thylane Blondeau took less than an hour to be called “sublime” on Monday. The 19-year-old model who has been dubbed the “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” broke her Instagram silence of over two weeks today with a series of breath-taking shots – the French sensation whose braless indoor sunbathing session made headlines last month was decidedly outdoors today, sharing photos from a solo ocean outing from an unknown location.
Thylane was just 4 years old when French designer Jean Paul Gaultier spotted her on the street. The moniker she’s been carrying around ever since definitely manifested in today’s images.
You’ll want to swipe all the way through below for Thylane’s full gallery and videos. The Aix-en-Provence native kicked off her post with a view of her coastal path scenery, then sharing a low-key snap of herself shot from below as she rocked a distressed and ripped t-shirt with a butterfly arm tattoo on show – Thylane also shared an image of her sneaker-clad feet before finally offering her 3.5 million followers a full-length shot. The leggy and skimpy shorts look showed Thylane clambering across rocks amid gentle waves, with a water video, plus indoor snaps wrapping it up.
Racking up over 48,000 likes in two hours, the update appeared a hit, also bringing in a mix of English and French comments. Thylane, who turned 19 in lock-down last month, seemed to have Instagram glad she was getting some fresh air.
“C’est bien de sortir ?même si c’est quelques instants sa redonne une bouffée d’air. ?” – the comment translates as: “It’s good to get out. Even in these few instances, it breathes life back into you with a breath of air.”
“Sublime,” another said.
Having openly stated that she’s “embarrassed” by everything she does, Thylane is known to be shy. Likewise modest – when profiled by L’officiel, with Unilad translating the feature, Thylane said:
“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?”
2019 saw Thylane crowned “Model of the Year” by Cosmopolitan magazine.
“To be honest, I do not like to talk about myself. It’s funny, is not it? But I play the piano, guitar and drums. And I’m singing. But I’m terribly embarrassed about everything I do,” Thylane told Frivolette.
Thylane’s profile is on the up. While her past includes runway modeling for designers including Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, her current status includes her fronting clothing and perfume brand Cacharel. Thylane continues to wow Instagram – this year has seen her blow fans away from Starbucks and go wet-effect for Valentine’s Day.
