She was crowned the ‘most beautiful girl in the world’ when she was just six and now Thylane Blondeau has won the title again, at the age of 17.

The model, who is the daughter of French footballer Patrick Blondeau and fashion designer Veronika Loubry, took out the top spot on TC Candler’s 2018 annual awards list.

A video announcing the results, called ‘The 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018’, has already been viewed over 2.3 million times on YouTube.


Taking to her Instagram, Thylane posted a picture of the video for her 2.6 million followers, saying she couldn’t believe she’d taken the title again.

“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. I really hope your having great holidays and spend nice Christmas with your family ..all the best to all of you guys lots of love.”

Thylane started her career from the early age of four when she walked for high fashion label Jean Paul Gaultier.


Her photos showing off her piercing blue eyes and beachy blond hair captivated the world.

Aged 10, Thylane ignited controversy for being involved in a ‘risqué’ photoshoot for Vogue Paris which many people branded ‘disgraceful’ and ‘irresponsible’.

Since then, she’d made appearances at Fashion Week in both London and Paris.


The model sensation was also the face of the spring/summer 2018 campaign of well-known French brand Juicy Couture.

She is also the founder of her own clothing line, called Heaven May.
