Thylane Blondeau doesn’t wear bikinis often – it’s grab it while you can over on her Instagram. The “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” – who has been carrying around her famous moniker since she was spotted aged just 4 – updated her account ahead of the weekend with a little swimwear action.
Thylane, 19, and refusing to acknowledge her status, had fan jaws dropping with the shot. The French model and social media sensation also saw recent video footage of her reposted to fan accounts – turns out her English is pretty good.
Scroll for the snap. The above one came as a pandemic lock-down selfie back when Thylane was quarantining in Paris. The model, born in the Southern French town of Aix-en-Provence, spent much of COVID locked down in the French capital, with this month seeing her finally jetting off to ritzy Ibiza in Spain.
Thylane, gearing up to launch her No Smile clothing brand, stuck to her poker face in the snap. She didn’t hide her killer body or fierce beauty, though.
The snap showed Thylane lying on a lounger and largely in the sun amid a blue sky backdrop. The 2019 Cosmopolitan Model of the Year was on her side, seen shooting the camera a piercing, blue-eyed gaze while flaunting her slender shoulders, cleavage, and flat stomach in a white string bikini.
Blondeau, who tends not offer lengthy captions, offered nothing at all here – she merely delivered beauty, plus her penchant for snazzy accessories as she wore a chain necklace. Thylane calls her fans “Thylaners,” and they turned out in full force.
Keep scrolling for the video – this one showed Thylane wet-haired, speaking English, and sharing how much sugar she likes in her coffee.
No way of telling if the “Ocean Eyes” reply was quoting 18-year-old Billie Eilish’s hit track, but it was still a win for Thylane. The model, herself looking up to Bella and Gigi Hadid as her style icons, however stands firm when it comes to acknowledging her “Most Beautiful” status.
“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.
Scroll for her celebrity followers after the video.
Thylane has been offering her 3.6 million followers sneak peek updates on the No Smile clothing brand she’s set to launch. Blondeau herself already fronts french fragrance brand Cacharel, alongside being the new face of 1982-founded sweatpants brand Sweet Pants.
While this beauty is relatively unknown in the US., she is racking up American celebrity followers. Thylane’s Instagram is followed by 22-year-old “Shake It Up” actress Bella Thorne, “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Lisa Rinna, former “Vanderpump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder, plus “Call Her Daddy” podcast host Alexandra Cooper.
