She was named the most beautiful girl in the world at the tender age of six, after her picture on the cover of Vogue Enfants captivated readers across the globe. And French-born Thylane Blondeau, who is now 16, has given fans a behind the scenes glimpse of her first ever Fashion Month experience in a string of glamorous Instagram pictures.
The teenager, who walked for Jean Paul Gaultier at the age four and then became the youngest ever model to pose for French Vogue in an editorial that some criticised by some for being too ‘sexualised’, appeared to have enjoyed every minute of her first-ever Fashion Month.

Previously confined to sitting in the audience, Blondeau kicked off her first Fashion Week in New York at the beginning of September, when she walked for Michael Kors.
And while her surprise return to the limelight certainly sent tongues in the audience wagging, she treated her 1.6M Instagram followers to her own view of the Fashion Week extravaganza.
Posting ahead of her journey, Blondeau was seen posing in black skinny jeans and a simple grey hoodie, the backdrop of her French home town in the background.
‘Ready to go to NYC tomorrow,’ she wrote excitedly, adding ‘#NYFW’ as she prepared for the fashion extravaganza.

And having arrived at Fashion Week’s first stop- New York- the model’s first selfie in The Big Apple certainly didn’t disappoint, as she showed off her signature pout and glossy golden tresses as she enjoyed an al fresco cup of coffee.
‘In my NYC thoughts,’ she captioned the snap, which quickly garnered over 150,000 likes.

And seemingly adapting well to the jet set life of a model, Thylane shared another selfie as she lounged in a hoodie on the sofa of her hotel room, writing: ‘Bye NY, hello London!’.

Arriving in London, Thylane was treated to a FROW seat at Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring 2018 presentation, posing in the designer’s ensemble.
Watching the likes of supermodel Gigi Hadid- who is also represented by IMG models along with the likes of Bella and Cindy Crawford’s daughter Kaia Gerber, Thylane shared a snap as she enjoyed the glitzy after party.
Posing with Gabriel-Kane, son of actor Daniel Day Lewis, influencer Cameron Dallas, British Elite model Anaïs Gallagher (who is also musician Noel Gallagher’s daughter), and IMG model Neels Visser, she looked every inch the seasoned professional.
‘Thank u so much for this amazing show @tommyhilfiger @gigihadid’, she captioned the behind the scenes snap.
Gigi Hadid isn’t the only model who’s a fan of Tommy Hilfiger, it seems. French model, Thylane Blondeau seems to also approve of the popular brand.
Appearing at the Tommy Hilfiger show recently, the young star showed her support in head-to-toe Hilfiger.
In the brand’s iconic red, white and blue colourway, she looked stunning and stylish!
We particularly loved her cropped hoodie: it’s totally versatile and looks super comfy.

And the model’s next stop was Milan, with her treating her followers to a nighttime snap as she posed in front of the famous Italian Duomo Cathedral landmark.
Dressed in skinny black jeans and a crop top, the teenager- who stands at just 5’6′, simply captioned the excited snap ‘MILAN!’.
Marking the last foot of her Fashion Month extravaganza, Thylane arrived back in her home country of France- sharing a simple black and white snap from Paris.
‘Morning Paris’, she wrote, in a pose reminiscent of the snap that made her famous ten years ago

Thurlane, who is the daughter of French footballer Patrick Blondeau, is a 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.
The teenager certainly has mingled with the creme de la creme of the next generation of models, having been pictured walking alongside the likes of Jourdan Dunn and the offspring of celebrities, including Christian Combs and Lori Harvey (the kids of Diddy and Steve Harvey, respectively).
Her new circle could also include Hailey Baldwin (daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin), Mackinley Hill (sister of Victoria’s Secret model Taylor Hill), Talita Von Fürstenberg (granddaughter of designer Diane von Fürstenberg), Corinne Foxx (daughter of actor Jamie Foxx), and Amber Le Bon (daughter of Duran Duran singer Simon Le Bon).
Thylane’s rise to fame has not been without controversy, after her French Vogue cover six years ago was accused of being too sexual.
But her mother Veronika Loubry, a fashion designer, defended the cover at the time, telling a French newspaper, ‘The only thing that shocks me about the photo is the necklace that she’s wearing, which is worth 3 million Euros,’ or about $4.3 million.
And Thylane has certainly adapted to being a child model with flying colours, naming ‘Cara Delevingne, Gigi Hadid, and Barbara Palvin’ as her style icons and inspirations, and like 21-year-old Gigi, she is a self-proclaimed ‘boxing addict’ in a recent interview with W Magazine.
