Too Young? Thylane Blondeau | FashionTV’s Model of the Week

Apr 11th, 2014 | By | Category: World Model News

She’s been dubbed the new Kate Moss, and is a controversial child model that has caught the attention of the fashion world courtesy of her new Jalouse cover. Introducing 13-year-old model in the spotlight, Thylane Blondeau “#bornin2001.”

Look once, and she is more than your average doe-eyed, plump-lipped belle: her beauty is quite simply epic. Read how old she is, and this has skyrocketed her to model stardom overnight.

Controversy or Fashion Frenzy?

French youngster Thylane Blondeau has the media in a frenzy. Some say she is too young to be sexualised as a model, others applaud her captivating look and are comparing her to model greats such as Kate Moss and Miranda Kerr, who defined their supermodel status by breaking into the industry as youngsters.

But truth be known, Thylane has been modelling since she was a baby. She is the daughter of French TV host and fashion designer Veronika Loubry, and first caught the attention of the fashion world when, at the age of 10, she was pictured posing for the Tom Ford-edited edition of Vogue Paris in 2011. She was chosen as one of a selection of girls that were dolled up in adult glam-wear and dripping in jewels and makeup, igniting widespread controversy.

Hanging with Kanye

But where there is controversy, there is often talent. Now, Thylane is 13-years-old and has featured on her first “grown up” magazine cover for French glossy Jalouse. The model, who has starred in campaigns for Lacoste, Ralph Lauren Black Label and walked the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier, took to her Twitter account to share the news with a behind-the-scenes image from the Jalouse shoot. But this is just the beginning.

Thylane has some major, and we mean may-jor star friends. You need only check out her Instagram account to see that she is hanging with the big guns, aka Kanye West, model Hollie May Saker, and more.

One thing’s certain, Thylane has big things written in the stars. This is a model we can expect to conquer the fashion world in the years to come!
