"The most beautiful girl in the world" seems like a huge stretch, or at least something my mom would call me when I was crying over a boy at age 12. But can there really be one girl more beautiful than all the rest? Thylane Blondeau not only sounds like a fictional character, but she's just as beautiful as figments of your imagination.

10 years ago, a photographer captured this infamous image of Thylane which quickly went viral. People across the globe quickly deemed her the most beautiful girl in the world thanks to her sun-kissed skin, honey coloured hair and crystal blue eyes. The daughter of famous soccer player Patrick Blondeau and actress and television presenter Véronika Loubry, Thylane was born in the South of France like a true glamazon and grew up in St. Maarten.

Fast forward to 2017 and Thylane has taken the world by storm with her modelling career, as she consistently graces front row seats at Fashion week when she's not hitting the runway. This past week, she attended the Gigi Hadid x Tommy Hilfiger show and made a splash in her all-American fit.

Thylane, unsurprisingly, has been modelling since she was a tot - gracing the Jean Paul Gautier runway at a mere 4-years-old. Now at a mere 16, her career is still on the rise as the fashion darling was even flown out to NYC to attend the Michael Kors show where she stunned in a leopard-print look.

When Thylane isn't hitting the catwalk or a bougie afterparty, she can be found hanging out with best friend Gabriel Lewis - Daniel Day-Lewis' son - or going to school. 16's pretty sweet, especially when you're this stunning.
