This little girl has already been dubbed “the most beautiful girl in the world” at only 10 years old. Thylane Blondeau, 7 years later and already muse of the L’Oreal brand. The young beauty has already had to put aside her modeling career following the scandal of Vogue who had dressed her in adult clothes. Back on an extraordinary life on the catwalks.
Beautiful blue eyes, luscious lips, a mysterious look, the beautiful Thylane Blondeau fascinates from very early childhood. She was only 4 years old when she became a model and, a few years later, was awarded the title of “most beautiful girl in the world”. At only 17 years old, she seeks the aforementioned label “most beautiful face of the world”. But who is she and what is her career? Far from being an unknown in the battalion, the beautiful is the fruit of the love of the footballer Patrick Blondeau and the actress Veronika Loubry.
Thylane Blondeau was born on April 5, 2001 in the beautiful city of Aix-en-Provence. Her mother Veronika Loubry is a celebrity of the 90s and her father, Patrick Blondeau, is a footballer who had a peak of success in the same years. It is very early that the career of the beautiful blonde begins since in 2005, at only 4 years, she parades already for Jean-Paul Gauthier during the Paris Fashion Week.
The shoe pinches in 2010. When she is photographed for Vogue, she creates an uproar by posing with adult clothes. These photos have been decried because they are suggestive and bring the debate on the hypersexualization of the child.
What is the hypersexualization of girls?
It is not uncommon, even today, to see mini-miss competitions organized in the United States. The little girls are seen in jerseys and mimic suggestive poses at just 5 years old. Hypersexualization is to give a sexual character to a behavior that does not have in itself. This is how we see the lolita phenomenon, from Nabokov’s book, where a man in his fifties is flirting with his then-13-year-old daughter-in-law. Despite the long censorship of this book, we continue to see pre-adolescent behaviors as outrageous outfits that are similar to that of adult fashion. But this social trend is far from innocuous or the result of a desire to grow on the part of these girls.
This hypersexualization helps to confirm the image conveyed by the woman-object media. This phenomenon accentuates the inequality between women and men and instills from an early age that the body can be instrumentalized by young girls in order to correspond to the diktats of society that want a woman to be available, sexy and erotic. This prioritization of appearance at the expense of girls’ personalities can lead to early eating disorders, self-harm attitudes, and childhood depression.
Consecration of the girl
The scandal of Vogue passes and the success of the young Thylane continues. She returns in 2017 as the face of the L’Oréal cosmetics brand. In 2019, it is her face that is rewarded by Internet users. The magazine TC Candler released its ranking of the most beautiful faces of the year 2018 and the young Aix is chosen.
After being named “the most beautiful girl in the world”, Thylane is officially the most beautiful face in the world and dethroned Liza Soberano, a Philippine-American actress and model who earned this title in 2017. A distinction to which the young blonde reacts on the Instagram network with enthusiasm: “I can not believe it … Thank you very much TC Candler and thank you to all the people who voted for me. I did not think I was number 1 “
