    She then featured in French Vogue before hitting her teens after she was spotted at a Jean Paul Gaultier show.

    Now she has over 5.3 million followers on Instagram as she looks set to eclipse the fame of her parents.

    The stunner is the child of former Sheffield Wednesday and Watford defender Patrick Blondeau.

    The now 54-year-old, who won two caps for France, joined the Owls from Monaco at the start of the 1997/98 Premier League campaign.

    He only spent one season at Wednesday before heading home to sign Bordeaux and then Marseille.

    However, he did return to England with Watford in the Championship for another year in 2001 – just months after the birth of Thylane.

    But the father and daughter duo are not the only famous faces in the family – his ex wife and the model’s mum is French actress and television presenter Veronika Loubry.

    The model gained a lot of attention from the media aged just six when her big blue eyes and tousled hair earned her the title “the most beautiful girl in the world”.

    Born in Aix-en-Provence, France in 2001, Thylane was tipped to be fashion’s next big thing and drew comparisons to Brigitte Bardot, who appeared in Elle magazine aged 15.

    But it was Thylane’s shoot for a beauty section in Vogue in 2011 that saw her hit the headlines when she became one of the youngest models to ever feature in the magazine.

    Since the famous Vogue shoot the star has continued to go from strength to strength with her modelling career working for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, L’Oreal and creating her own brand back in 2018 named Heaven May.

    Thylane was No.1 in the Independent Critics List of the 100 Most Beautiful Faces of 2018.

    She said afterwards: “I just can’t believe it myself, thanks so much.”
