Meet French model Thylane Blondeau, ‘the most beautiful girl in the world’ at age six: now 20 years old


  • She worked with Zendaya for Dolce & Gabbana and is pals with Brooklyn Beckham
  • She was recruited by Jean Paul Gaultier at age three and did her first runway show a year later – but a Vogue photo shoot sparked controversy
  • No stranger to fame, she’s the daughter of footballer Patrick Blondeau and Véronika Loubry – and pals with Kaia Gerber, Barbara Palvin and Daniel Day-Lewis’ son, Gabriel-Kane

Thylane Léna-Rose Blondeau, a French model, was thrust into the international spotlight at a young age, walking her first runway for Jean Paul Gaultier at the age of four. Only two years later, at the age of six, she was crowned “the most beautiful girl in the world,” with her photographs going viral on the internet.

It’s been over a decade since her debut, and the now 20-year-old has continued her modeling career, working on high-profile luxury campaigns for brands like L’Oreal and Dolce & Gabbana.

She’s come a long way since her six-year-old appearance in Vogue Enfants, a Vogue Paris supplement. Blondeau is still on beauty rankings lists as a young adult, including multiple appearances on TC Candler’s “100 Most Beautiful Faces” list.

The model was recently spotted at Paris Fashion Week 2022 donning a grey crop top jumper and trousers at the Miu Miu show, resembling something of a 90s look. Sharing the outfit with her 5.1 million followers on Instagram, the model wrote, “My fifth @miumiu show. Thank you so much for having me! Always so happy to watch your show!!”

Her parents are famous

Blondeau was born in Saint-Tropez, the daughter of former French Premier League footballer Patrick Blondeau and Véronika Loubry, a French television presenter and fashion designer with over 162,000 Instagram followers.

Blondeau’s parents divorced in 2016, but she still posts pictures of herself with her mother and younger brother, Ayrton Blondeau, on social media. When asked where her happiest place on the planet is, she said, “Where I can stay with my mother and brother.”

Blondeau also runs in an elite close circle with Hollywood celebrities and supermodels like Kaia Gerber, Barbara Palvin, Gabriel-Kane Day-Lewis and Brooklyn Beckham. She worked together with Lewis in a Dolce & Gabbana campaign and the two are often spotted partying together at exclusive fashion parties, reports Elle UK.

Blondeau was discovered by fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier when she was three years old and walked the runway the following year. She had her first photo shoot at the age of seven with fashion photographer Dani Brubaker, and she rose to international prominence after appearing in a contentious photo shoot for Vogue Paris in 2011.

Blondeau, then 10, wore a heavy make-up look in the campaign, which was widely panned. Her mother, on the other hand, had a different reaction to the now-famous shoot.

“I understand that this could seem shocking,” she said, according to Glamour UK. “I admit I myself was shocked during the photo shoot. But let me be precise: the only thing that shocked me is that the necklace she wore was worth three million euros!”

Blondeau has since appeared on the covers of numerous magazines, including Jalouse at 13, L’Officiel Paris, Teen Vogue, Self Service Magazine, and Flaunt Magazine. At the age of 16, she signed with IMG Models. She has walked the runway for Dolce & Gabbana and was featured in the Italian label’s 2017 campaign alongside Zendaya, Presley Gerber, and Lucky Blue Smith. She made headlines yet again in 2017 when she sat front row at Michael Kors’ show, looking all grown up.

She has her own clothing brand and is set to make her acting debut

The French model is a multi-hyphenated talent as well. She made her film debut as Gabriele in Belle & Sebastian: The Adventure Continues (2015) and launched her own fashion line, Heaven May, in 2018.

According to IMDB, the model will also appear in two upcoming films, Helvellyn Edge, starring Jonah Hauer-King, and The Loneliest Boy in the World, starring Evan Ross.

Her boyfriend is a fashion brand owner

Blondeau is dating Benjamin Attal, a fashion businessman who has his own label called TQL Boyz Paris. The couple is reportedly engaged, with Attal changing his Instagram bio to a diamond ring emoji with a heart tagging his fiancée. He is frequently featured on Blondeau’s Instagram page, and the couple has been seen showing PDA in public.

She recently wished her boyfriend a happy birthday on Instagram and posted a collection of tender photos, writing,  “Happy bday my love! I’m the luckiest girl to have you in my life! Life without you does not make sense. I love you.”
