The woman named the ‘most beautiful girl in the world’ is now all grown up. 

French model Thylane Blondeau skyrocketed to fame at just six years old when a photo of her with sun-streaked hair and striking blue eyes went viral.

Over the years, many have been intrigued to see whether Blondeau would be just as captivating as she grew up and whether she’d continue in the world of modelling.

Now, she’s been spotted at a red carpet event and everyone is saying the same thing.

Blondeau, daughter of former French footballer Patrick Blondeau and actress and TV presenter Véronika Loubry, has made it easy for fans to keep updated with her life.

The 23-year-old keeps her followers posted via Instagram where she has millions of followers. She often uploads professional photo shoot images, behind-the-scene snaps and numerous sneak peeks into her life.

It appears she’s not slowed down in the world of modelling either, as she’s reportedly worked for Dolce & Gabanna, L’Oréal and Versace.

She also topped TC Candler’s annual ‘100 Most Beautiful Faces’ in 2018, as reported by Us Weekly.

However, Blondeau’s career hasn’t been entirely smooth sailing and like many stars, she’s faced controversy, despite being so young.

A debate was sparked in 2011 when a then-10-year-old Blondeau posed for a Vogue fashion shoot while wearing heavy makeup and gold stilettos, reports MailOnline.

Many questioned whether it was an appropriate photo shoot for a child to be involved in.

Dr Emma Gray of the British CBT & Counselling Service said at the time: “This picture is the antithesis of what childhood in our society should be; a child being exposed to a world she is not yet equipped to deal with solely to serve the needs of the adults around her.”

Blondeau’s mum addressed the backlash: “I understand that this could seem shocking. 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 €3 million!”

Years later, in an interview with The Telegraph, Blondeau said she didn’t register the global attention she received when she was younger.

“People are like, ‘You know, you’re the most beautiful girl in the world’, and you’re like, ‘I’m not, I’m just playing with my iPad’,” she told the publication.

“Even today, people are like, ‘You are the most beautiful girl’, and I’m like, ‘No, I’m still not, I’m just a human being, a teenager’.”

However, Blondeau still seems to be capturing attention with her striking looks, as pictures of her at the Cannes Film Festival are making headlines.

The French model joined the likes of Bella Hadid and Cate Blanchett in a sleeveless Givenchy dress with lace panelling.

Fans have taken to the comments and gushed over the star’s looks, with one writing: “She’s naturally beautiful.”

In agreement, another adds: “She is stunning, no doubt.”

“A real beauty with great class and elegance,” comments a third.

Somebody else enthuses: “Magnifique.”
