Thylane Blondeau, who is now 16 and a French model, was once labeled the ‘most beautiful girl in the world’. Now, she’s one of the most beautiful women in the world and is old enough to sit in the front row at the New York Fashion Week event with other stunning women from across the globe. Thylane created a stir at the ripe old age of ten when she posed in a shoot for Vogue Paris. She was invited to the event this week… one of the most highly prized invitations in the fashion world.
On Wednesday, she sat in the front row with other celebrities at the Michael Kors show. She wore a shimmering animal-print top and moss-green pants. The ensemble was designed by Michael Kors. She was a package from top to bottom put together by Kors himself. Thylane modeled a complete getup of his latest designs, including a $1,395 silk shirt and a pair of $695 pants. She sported an $8,000 green crocodile Michael Kors handbag and wore a pair of the brand’s strappy $550 heels as well. Her outfit totaled $10,640… that’s a large price tag for such a young fashion star.
Thylane wore her signature pouty face for the cameras and posed for pictures at the event. Her hair was straight and flowed over her shoulders and her makeup was perfect. Prior to the event, she shared an image of herself prepping in her hotel room. She posed in a fluffy white robe for the camera and she looked classically beautiful in it.
Once she arrived at the show, Thylane sat with her close friend Gabriel-Kane Day Lewis. He’s the son of actor Daniel Day Lewis and model Cami Morrone. Joining her were other celebrities such as Nicole Kidman, Naomi Watts and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Catherine also brought her teenage daughter Carys with her. She bears a strong resemblance to her mother and is now 14.
Thylane is the daughter of soccer star Patrick Blondeau and model Cami Morrone. She made headlines at four years-old as she walked the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier. When she was six, she covered Vogue Enfants — a supplement that ran in Vogue Paris and featured children’s clothing. That exposure won her the title of the ‘most beautiful girl in the world’. At ten she was posing for Vogue Paris, which some criticized as sexulizing the little girl. Now, as a teenager, she is with IMG. Thylane is the brand ambassador for L’Oréal and has been named the face of a perfume by French designer Lolita Lempicka.
She has also appeared in Dolce & Gabbana’s Spring 2017 campaign alongside Zendaya, Lucky Blue Smith and Presley Garber. Thylane walked in the designer’s Fall 2017 show earlier this year. She didn’t make it onto the runway for Michael Kors, but she did win a prime seat for the event. She got to watch supermodels Carolyn Murphy, Kendall Jenner, Ashley Graham, Bella Hadid and Kate Upton walk in the show. Sara Bareilles also performed at the event.
This is Thylane’s first New York Fashion Week show… she just arrived in town a couple of days ago. Just in time to sit in the star-studded front row of the much sought after event. Carolyn, Kendall and company helped show off Kors’ Spring 2018 collection, which took viewers on a bit of an island vacation. The fashion was breezy and classic and it looked like Thylane had the time of her life there. We’ll be seeing much more of the young model… this is just the beginning of her career.
