Blondeau was spotted frolicking in the clear waters. Her beau playfully patted her backside before the couple shared a sweet embrace.
Blondeau was just four years old when she walked for French couture designer Jean Paul Gaultier. At age 6, she appeared in a now-iconic photo that earned her the accolade of “Most Beautiful Girl in the World” by the press.
Then at age 10, she starred in the Vogue Paris supplement, Vogue Enfants, Glamour magazine UK reported. The image stirred controversy for depicting the child posing in a gold dress while wearing high heels and makeup.

According to the outlet, her mother Loubry went on to say: “I understand that this could seem shocking. 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!”
At age 13, Blondeau took on acting, appearing in “Belle & Sebastian: The Adventure Continues.”
Blondeau successfully transitioned as a child model in the fashion world. In Feb. 2017, she made her adult runway debut for Dolce & Gabbana during Milan Fashion Week. She was invited for the couture designer to participate in the Sept. 2017 show. Blondeau also became the brand ambassador for L’Oreal and the face of a perfume by French designer Lolita Lempicka.

“You know, this does not affect me in any way,” she told the outlet. “I’m still young, I’m pleased. And I try to do anything for the ‘Thylaners’ (her fan base). I talk with them all the time, and often my mother helps me to answer messages.”
When asked whom she would call “the most beautiful girl on Earth,” Blondeau responded, “Not exactly myself!”
