Thylane Blondeau skipped the pants – but not the appeal – in her Monday Instagram share. The “World’s Most Beautiful Girl,” first spotted by designer Jean Paul Gaultier at the age of 4, has been steadily making headlines for spending her lock-down in Paris. Thylane, 19, has an apartment in the French capital, but the model and social media sensation has jetted out to the sun.
Thylane, fresh from making headlines for stripping off to promote a shirt she wasn’t wearing, was in one yesterday. Well, ish.
Scroll for the latest snap, plus the ultra-stylish Fendi swimsuit Thylane recently appeared in. The 2019 Cosmopolitan Model of the Year, still gearing up to launch her No Smile Clothing line, had been photographed on a chic and minimalist terrace from her Ibiza, Spain location. Thylane was posing on an oversized couch with muted accents, seen flaunting her model physique in a skimpy look –that was all white.
Blondeau wore a flimsy and scallop-necked tank, no pants, no socks, no shoes, and a shirt worn open and off-the-shoulder.
Thylane, whose Instagram activity does log more Starbucks trips than meals – but no evidence of abnormal behavior – had her fans probing her. The model, followed by 3.8 million on Instagram, saw a fan writing: “Trop maigre.” The French translates to “too thin.”
Fans had various opinions. While some felt the comment was unnecessary and a body-shaming one, others agreed. One user wrote that they preferred Thylane “avec des formes,” translating to “with curves.” Keep scrolling for more photos.
Thylane remains relatively unknown Stateside. In Europe, however, the star is a major deal, and her resume reflects it. Thylane has walked the runway for designers including Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana, she’s fronted Juicy Couture, and she’s the new face of 1982-founded sweatpants line Sweet Pants.
Thylane’s Instagram is also racking up a small celebrity fanbase. She’s kept tabs on by “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna, actress Bella Thorne, “Call Her Daddy” podcast host Alexandra Cooper, plus now-fired “Vanderpump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder.
Thylane, who worships the style seen from supermodel sister duo Bella and Gigi Hadid, has spoken out regarding her famous moniker. She told L’Officiel:
“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?”
Thylane does, however, come backed an army of adoring fans. And she has an adorable name for them – she’s nicknamed them “Thylaners.”
