At the time, however, Blondeau's mother — Veronika Loubry — defended the fashion editorial's photos. "The only thing that shocks me about the photo is the necklace that she's wearing, which is worth 3 million Euros," Loubry said.

She states that she always liked modeling and was not forced into it by anybody. She likes putting on makeup and experimenting with different types of clothes. However, in spite of this, she and her parents have faced a lot of criticism since she was 10.

When she was 10, Thylane was photographed for a ‘Vogue Paris’ supplement, ‘Vogue Enfants,’ which featured her as an adult model, wearing a gold dress, high heels, and heavy makeup.

Over the next few years, Thylane became the French modeling industry’s next big thing. People compared her with French supermodel and actor Brigitte Bardot, who had also started young.

Two years later, at the age of 15, she was offered a contract by ‘IMG Models,’ one of the world’s most esteemed modeling agencies. There, she became friends with Gigi Hadid’s daughter Bella Hadid, another teenage model. Since bagging the contract with ‘IMG Models,’ Thylane has walked the ramp for major high-end fashion brands such as ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ and ‘Tommy Hilfiger.’

In 2017, she became the face of the beauty brand ‘L’Oreal Paris’ and appeared in their print and TV advertisements. In ‘Dolce & Gabbana’s 2017 spring/summer campaign, she walked the ramp alongside supermodels such as Zendaya, Lucky Blue Smith, and Presley Gerber.

Despite having an ever-growing modeling career, Thylane wishes to be an actor in the future. She has already portrayed the pivotal role of ‘Gabriele’ in the 2015 French film ‘Belle & Sebastian: The Adventure Continues.’

Following her debut appearance on the big screen, she was approached for many more films and TV series. She is currently reading scripts to choose the right project to launch her. In May 2017, she was photographed on the red carpet of the ‘Cannes Film Festival,’ which was another indication of her interest in films.
