Thylane Blondeau Is Winning the 10-Year Challenge With Incredible Instagram Throwback

January 19, 2019 Updated: January 19, 2019

Thylane Blondeau, or as you may know her “the most beautiful girl in the world,” graced the cover of Vogue Enfants as a 6-year-old and hasn’t looked back since.

Until now. Rising to a viral throwback photo challenge on Instagram, Thylane shared a picture of herself as a child next to a recent shot of herself now, at 17. The famous model is looking back on a year of successful campaigns, including the launch of her own clothing line, “Heaven May.”

Thylane’s two photos, both showcasing her trademark pout, blonde hair, and piercing blue eyes, garnered thousands of likes within hours. ”So basically you were gorgeous before and 10 years later, nothing’s changed,” wrote one impressed fan.

“Still the most beautiful girl,” praised another.

Thylane also recently topped an online poll titled “100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018.”

Allegedly shy, Thylane is still tenacious, and kept her gorgeous face in the spotlight throughout 2018, starring in ads for Juicy Couture and even visiting Italy for Milan Fashion Week in September, where she walked the catwalk for fashion brand BYBLOS. That same month, she launched her fashion brand.

Thylane exudes the quiet confidence of a young woman who has always been told that she is beautiful. She modeled for Jean Paul Gaultier at age 4, and became the youngest ever model to pose for French Vogue, an editorial that provoked a backlash for being too sexual.

Thylane’s mother, fashion designer Veronika Loubry, has always defended her daughter’s career choices, once telling a French newspaper that the only shocking thing about the Vogue cover was “the price of the necklace” her daughter was wearing (approx US$4.3 million, for curious readers!).

At 17, 11 years since the photo that shocked the internet was taken, Thylane cites the likes of Christian Combs and Lori Harvey (the children of P. Diddy and Steve Harvey, respectively) as her close friends. She’s certainly grown accustomed to a celebrity lifestyle and has grown up to be the model success the world expected.

But the modest teenager recently posted a disclaimer on Instagram: “I do not consider myself the most beautiful girl in the world! When I was little, people always told me.”

We can see why they did, Thylane. And to be honest, we have to agree with them!
