Thylane Blondeau kept it skimpy, mysterious, and – as ever – stunning in her latest Instagram share. The “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” who has been carrying around her moniker since she was 4 years old updated her account ahead of the weekend. If you don’t live inside 19-year-old Thylane’s feed, it’s packed with low-key Starbucks moments, her pet dog, and the odd promo for the Cacharel fragrance she fronts. Friday brought the French stunner surrounded by makeup and in a look that Khloe Kardashian would likely approve of.
Scroll for today’s photo. The above one dates back to mid-April when full lock-down in Paris saw Thylane confined to her apartment. The model has since been out and about, with the latest image possibly suggesting a photoshoot location. Thylane posed for a selfie in front of a mirror and a counter full of cosmetics. Cosmopolitan’s 2019 Model of the Year struck a pose in nothing but a black blazer wrapped around her, with the slit finish flashing some leg and the off-the-shoulder jacket checking boxes for the shirtless look.
Thylane, who was spotted by French designer Jean Paul Gaultier as a child, appeared with a full face of makeup and a hip-swinging pose. She did not disclose her location as she stood backed by couches and exposed brick walls. A big red exclamation point was the only caption, with Thylane’s 3.8 million followers left clueless as to her whereabouts. Nicknamed “Thylaners” by the model herself, the fans were right on the update. “??,” one wrote. “Hit me with a shovel & call me shaun good lord… ????,” another said. More below.
Thylane has been making headlines amid the pandemic. The Aix-en-Provence native was spotted in the luxurious French seaside town of St.Tropez before returning to Paris, where home videos have shown her love of hip-hop. June has seen Thylane with a female friend and in a no-pants look as she rapped to Canadian rappers Drake’s “Chicago Freestyle,” with the rap vibe staying strong as Thylane did similar with Kanye West music. Thylane has also name-dropped some celebrity faces in interviews – and you’ll have heard of these ones. More after the childhood photo.
Thylane, who refuses to acknowledge her “Most Beautiful” status, has opened up on her style icons. For her, it’s supermodel sister duo Bella and Gigi Hadid. While Blondeau remains relatively unknown in the U.S., she is racking up the celebrity followers. Her Instagram is kept tabs on by 22-year-old “Shake It Up” actress Bella Thorne, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna, plus popular “Call Her Daddy” podcast host Alexandra Cooper. Thylane also has her No Smile Clothing line in the works.
