Here’s What ‘the Most Beautiful Girl in the World’ Looks Like Now

Thylane Blondeau was awarded the title of the world’s most beautiful girl when she was just an infant. She hit the ramp when she was just a child for Gaultier. Children modelling have always been controversial because of the possible effects of too much glamour and the suggestive ways of seduction that models are required to exhibit. And Blondeau faced similar controversy when she appeared on Vogue’s cover at only 10 years of age. The general public was hugely concerned about her development as a young model.

Here’s how she has grown up, and this is what she’s doing right not. And it’s nothing less than inspirational.

She was raised by actress Veronika Loubry and footballer Patrick Blondeau.

A model needs to be at least 17 years of age because the modelling industry is considered to be a bad influence on minors.

Since models are required to focus a bit too much on their looks, it may not be a particularly healthy lifestyle.

Blondeau’s mother says she was shocked at the photoshoot her daughter appeared. But what shocked her more was the expensive jewelry she adorned.

Initially her mother turned down the offers Thylane received because she was too young.
