Thylane Blondeau is stopping traffic. The “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” – who has been carrying around her moniker since she was spotted at the age of four – updated her Instagram earlier this week with another reminder of her low-key vibes, stunning good looks, and trademark mysterious edge. Blondeau, 19, has been making headlines for offering a little more insight into her life via a pantless video showing her rapping to Drake, but Monday was back to the usual as the French model kept it anonymous on an unnamed Paris street.
Scroll for yesterday’s photo, although the above one serves as a classic example of Thylane’s penchant for giving little away. Cosmopolitan’s 2019 Model of the Year, followed by 3.6 million on Instagram, had taken it outdoors for her update, snapped on a quiet Paris side street with parked cars and stone-fronted apartment blocks – eyes were likely on Thylane, though, as she posed in profile and flaunted her model figure in loose black jeans, a skimpy gray crop top and likewise cropped sweater, plus stark-white sneakers.
Starbucks is a giant deal for this girl – and the French capital doesn’t exactly have them on every block. Thylane has updated her Instagram from unmarked ones, with a video posted to a fan account recently – seen below – showing the Cacharel fragrance face enjoying an iced latte from the coffee chain while accompanied by a friend. As to Thylane’s street shot, it also showed the brunette posing seductively with a thumb placed to her mouth – Thylane opted out of a caption as she clocked herself over 154,000 likes. See what the model has to say for herself below.
Thylane, who has walked for designers including Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, remains notoriously shy – and modest. Despite having been cherry-picked by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier in her childhood days, the model maintains that she’s your average Joe:
“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?” she told L’Officiel. Keep scrolling for her surprising celebrity following.
Thylane isn’t a household name in the U.S. – different story in Europe – although her beauty and edgy Instagram updates are getting noticed by American faces. The No Smile Clothing founder’s account is followed by 22-year-old “Midnight Sun” actress Bella Thorne, plus “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna. Also keeping tabs on Thylane is “Call Her Daddy” podcast host Alexandra Cooper. As to Thylane’s favorite celebrities, she’s made that very car – the model looks up to supermodel sister duo Bella dn Gigi Hadid as her style icons.
