Remember when this photograph of six-year-old Thylane Lena-Rose Blondeau broke the internet in 2011, when she was quickly dubbed the “prettiest girl in the world” by international media?
It all stemmed from her starring in this controversial Vogue Paris fashion shoot, but that wasn’t Thylane’s first gig. In fact, she walked in her first runway show for Jean Paul Gaultier at the age of four and did a shoot with Tom Ford at the age of 10. NBD, right?
Now she’s being touted as the next Kate Moss after landing a contract with cosmetic giant L’Oréal Paris as their new spokesmodel, joining the likes of Karlie Kloss, Barbara Palvin and Irina Shayk.
Oh, and did we mention the ultra-beautiful teen was named as such on her 16th birthday? Sweet present!

“I am so honoured to join the L’Oréal Paris family, which is one of the most amazing beauty brands I always dreamt about,” the blue-eyed beauty said in a statement. “Now I am turning 16, working alongside beauty talents and spokespersons I’ve long admired, is the best gift ever! L’Oréal Paris is truly a brand where I feel I can be myself, defending values that matter for me such as self-confidence and self-esteem. And the adventure is just getting started.”
Miss FQ cover girl, anyone?
