Thylane Blondeau might not be a household name in the U.S., but the “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” whose looks were first noticed at the age of 4 is well-known over in Europe. The 19-year-old French model who was cherry-picked by designer Jean Paul Gaultier as a child is continuing to prove just why she carries around her moniker – Thylane’s latest Instagram update showed off her beauty with the fuss-free finish that’s become the Aix-en-Provence native’s trademark.
Keep scrolling for Thylane’s best photos, plus a little about the girl who reveals very little on Instagram.
Scroll for Thylane’s Saturday photo, plus how the girl who has graced Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana catwalks refuses to acknowledge her status, alongside saying she’s “embarrassed” by everything she does.
Thylane’s snap was a simple selfie, with the stunner seen in her bedroom. Blondeau has been making headlines for being in quarantine – while she was briefly in the Southern France resort town of St.Tropez recently, she has since flown back to Paris. Today brought Thylane in a skimpy black crop top, plus hints of white sweats, with the indoor shades look adding a little pizzazz as Thylane posed with colorful nails in front of her bed.
Thylane offered nothing in the way of a caption bar four heart emoji in purple and green. These did match her nails, though. The update clocked over 44,000 likes in an hour – Thylane has 3.5 million followers – with Cosmopolitan’s 2019 “Model of the Year” bringing in the wave of fan gushing that’s the standard every time she updates.
“The prettiest!” one fan wrote.
“Damn beauty,” another said.
There were comments noticing something very specific, though. Thylane had, as usual, opted out of offering detail on herself. She rarely does.
Thylane’s fans are a beady-eyed bunch. Comments quickly came in over what was clearly a bashed-up smartphone – many users remarked on it.
“What happened with the phone ????” one fan wrote.
“How did u manage to break your phone already thy???❤️” was another comment.
The Cacharel fragrance face was also thrown countless heart emoji. Thylane, however, maintains that the world’s “most beautiful girl” isn’t the girl featured in this article – “Firstly: I do not consider myself the most beautiful girl in the world!” she told L’Officiel, also telling Frivolette: “I’m embarrassed by everything I do.”
Thylane continued: “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?”
Thylane’s Instagram following may be relatively modest compared to modeling faces including Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, or rising sensation Kaia Gerber, but the Frenchie has a few celebs keeping tabs on her. Thylane’s account is followed by 22-year-old “Shake It Up” actress Bella Thorne, singer Madison Beer, plus “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna.
