There are just a lot of things in the world which are just so controversial! You would be looking at things, and you would be drifting away from them because you know that if you start a conversation with it, then you are going to get dragged into it. And that somewhat happens when this young girl who was considered as a kid back then when she stepped into the modeling world. And she entered the fashion world, and people just went crazy over her because as you all can see that she is just so gorgeous and amazing!
Meet Thylane Blondeau who was considered as the most beautiful girl in the world, and it has been that way for quite some time now. She didn’t know that she was that gorgeous until she appeared on the Vogue cover six years ago, and she started making headlines ever since! But then people started to raise the question that whether it is wrong or right to drag a child into such a thing. Because she was just a small world and people who have seen the showbiz know that it isn’t the best place for a kid to be at a young age.
It created a very big debate that children shouldn’t be allowed to be doing these modeling jobs because it somehow affects them and just changes them into something very different. Some people were up for it because they thought that it was just wrong and then some people knew that if you want to be successful you just have to start from a very a young age. She was born to a pair of French celebrities: football star athlete Patrick Blondeau and actress Véronika Loubry. She got into the modeling world when she was just four years old.
And it wasn’t just that she just appeared in the cover magazines of different brands, but she was the girl who walked the runway when she was just five years old. So you could say that she wasn’t the one who needed someone to teach her anything, but she just knew it. She participated in the Jean Paul Gaultier fashion show and walked the runway for that show only. She had the looks to just dying for because her crystal blue eyes and then the innocence on her face was something which was attracting almost everyone out there.
When you would look at the pictures of her when she was a little kid, you would realize that she is such a beautiful kid and everyone just knew that she is going to be such a beautiful girl once she is all grown up. And it was true all this time because she eventually became this beautiful and amazing girl that you see right now. And there is no denying that she was once called the most beautiful woman on the earth. But then people just didn’t know that how should they react to see a child doing modeling.
Some of you might not know this but in some countries, it has been banned that they shouldn’t let a child who is under the age of sixteen should be walking down the runway or they should be doing any photo shoots because that would just get the brands to be grounded. And if you are thinking that what was the entire perception behind all of this then let me tell you that it was felt that the world of fashion has been sexualized for children. and it is considered to be a very bad place for the kids out there to be in that place.
And it is true to somewhat extent because if you see then, a model has to struggle a lot to be at places. And it isn’t like that once you get a job you would be there and make money out of it for a long time. But you have to struggle and only then you would be able to land on certain projects that you like. And there is just so much emotional trauma involved in it because you would have to actually put in yourself to get projects. Now you could imagine that how a child would be reacting to such stuff.
I mean we have known these people who have been in the showbiz industry and we just know that they are at every step of life reminded that they have to put their body appearance first before they go for their health. You might have seen models who have starved themselves just so that they could look these slim and trim girls when they are doing a photo shoot. And you can very well imagine that how devastating that would be if they are asked to put their appearance first before they are looked at their health.
You can see the magazine cover where she appeared and you could very well judge for yourself that the entire cover was too much sexualized. She was a little child at that moment and she appeared in a manner which wasn’t complementing her age or anything and it was looking as if she has been made to this regardless of people knowing that she was at a very innocent age. So the shoot received some major backlash and as people were thinking that it would be a major hit, it was just criticized so badly and people spoke their hearts out!
A very well known psychologist Emma Grey when looked at the picture of the Vogue cover and she was asked to give her reviews on it, she said, “This picture is the antithesis of what childhood in our society should be; a child being exposed to the world she is not yet equipped to deal with solely to serve the needs of the adults around her.” and so many people agreed with her that a child of this innocent age should never and ever be exposed to such things, and it is true that there is an age for everything.
Even the Mother’s Union spoke out and actually lashed out when they got to know about this entire controversial cover, they said, “We have grave concerns about the modeling agency who represent Blondeau, which clearly does not know if it represents a child or an adult,” She was at such a young age that she didn’t know what she was doing because obviously she just didn’t know that the things that she is doing right now would put her in a position in life from which she would never be able to drift away, and that is the last thing any parent would want for their kid.
And obviously, since people were not blaming the kid for all of this but they were blaming the parents for it, her mother spoke on the issue by saying, “I admit I myself was shocked during the photo shoot. But let me be precise: the only thing that shocked me is that the necklace she wore was worth €3 million! I turn down at least three-quarters of the things we’re offered,” Loubry said. “For the moment, she’s leading a normal life.” and since the girl herself was so little she didn’t at the moment know what to speak or say on the issue.
But now she is all grown up and she knows how to carry herself and we think that she is just so fully aware of the fact that she is just so hot and beautiful at the same time that you wouldn’t want this beautiful face to be the glam light. She has been quite famous on Instagram. She told Teen Vogue 2015, “My favorite part of the job is meeting new photographers and makeup artists. I love to try on the clothes, too!” and now she wants to pursue her career in modeling too! we wish her the best of luck!
