Model to Watch: Thylane Blondeau

This Gen Z model is having the sweetest 16 ever.

While Thylane Blondeau’s name isn’t a household one just yet, the French model has garnered 1 million Instagram followers and counting.

Further cementing her escalating status, Thylane, who turned 16 on April 6, has just been announced L’Oreal‘s brand ambassador.

The fresh-faced beauty will promote the brand’s Hydra Genius line, which targets oily, combination skin.

Proving she’s a force to be reckon with, the newcomer recently shot Dolce & Gabbana’s spring-summer campaign with Zendaya.

However, just because Thylane is rocking high-fashion campaigns, it doesn’t mean she won’t be featured in commercial looks.

From the looks of her Instagram feed, we definitely foresee her pairing high-low pieces in her wardrobe and taking the Gigi Hadid route with Adidas and sporty footwear for a style boost.

L’Oréal’s global brand president, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, had high praise for the model: “Thylane is a voice for a generation that spends more time connecting to each other than any generation before it, sharing images more than words.”

We couldn’t agree more.
