Back in 2011, a young French model, Thylane Blondeau, was dubbed as “the most beautiful girl in the world.” But that’s just what she was, a girl, and the topic of child models has always been a point of controversy.
She participated in a Vogue photo shoot six years ago that raised concern in the public about the use of child models and as to whether or not the job would negatively affect them in the future.As for Blondeau, here’s how — and what — she’s doing now.
Her parents — a pair of French celebrities: football star athlete Patrick Blondeau and actress Véronika Loubry — got her into child modeling almost instantly at the age of four.
In 2005, she participated in the Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show and walked down the runway.
With her piercing blue eyes and photogenic face, it was clear from the beginning that she was going to grow up to be a beautiful woman.
But some people wonder if the world of modeling is really where a young girl should be.
Some countries have banned models under the age of sixteen to walk the catwalk because they feel that the world of fashion is too sexualized for children.
Not to mention that the stress of the high-pressure job of being a model can take a huge emotional toll on a person.
