Former ‘Most Beautiful Girl’ Thylane Blondeau rocks bikini

Thylane Blondeau seems determined to keep living up to the titillating title of “World’s Most Beautiful Girl.”

The 20-year-old French model and clothing designer — who’s twice topped TC Candler’s annual “100 Most Beautiful Faces of the Year” list — was recently photographed prancing around Club 55 beach on Saint Tropez.

Blondeau, who rocked a lavender bikini top and white bottoms for a pastel look, first raised eyebrows at age 6 way back in 2007, when she first dubbed the “World’s Most Beautiful Girl” — and hailed as the “new Kate Moss.”

But the daughter of French soccer player Patrick Blondeau and actress and fashion designer Veronika Loubry’s modeling career didn’t start or stop there. Prior to claiming the title, she walked the Jean Paul Gaultier catwalk at age 4.

From there, the fashion world wunderkind took the modeling sphere by storm, becoming the world’s youngest model to ever pose for Vogue Paris at the tender age of 10, in a photo shoot that some deemed too suggestive.

By the time she was sweet 16 in 2017, Blondeau was strutting her stuff on the runway for Dolce and Gabbana at Milan Fashion Week.

While the model is five-foot-six — which is considered short for a supermodel — with a title like hers, she had no problem breaking into the fashion world despite her height.

At 17 years old, she snagged the “Most Beautiful Girl” title for a second time, more than a decade after her first reign.

Blondeau took to Instagram to thank her fans for their support, writing: “I just can’t believe it myself…thanks so much @tccandler and everyone who voted.

“I never thought I was once number one!! I’m thankful to all of you – really hope you’re having great holidays and spend a nice Christmas with your family…all the best to all of you guys lots of love.”

The post eventually racked up more than 80,000 likes, with her fans writing: “You are so Beautiful” and “well deserved.” Blondeau soon went on to be a brand ambassador for L’Oréal and was named as the face of luxury perfumer Lolita Lempicka.

Now, Blondeau has accumulated more than 4 million Instagram followers and founded her own clothing brand No Smile, which sells athleisure and sweats attire, some of which is handmade in Paris.

The latest limited edition line dropped over the weekend, and the French model promoted it by posting about her beachy vacation on Instagram.
