The 6-year-old once dubbed the most beautiful girl in the world is all grown up and hitting the catwalk. 

Now 16, model Thylane Blondeau hit the runway at the Dolce & Gabbana fashion show during Milan Fashion Week. 

A decade ago, the 6-year-old child model gained international fame when she was described as the 'most beautiful girl in the world'. Having begun modeling at 4 years old, she was instantly famous.

Thylane even starred in a controversial editorial spread in Vogue Paris which caused the French government to pass a law banning anyone under the age of 16 to compete in beauty pageants to stop children being sexualised.

More than ten years later Thylane is still modeling. She's currently represented by WME-IMG and is a brand ambassador for L'Oréal. 

Of her age, she told Teen Vogue: "Well, Kate Moss started modeling at the age of 15, and that was a little while ago. So no. I'm not too young". "If you have a good agency and people who take care of you…it's perfect."

In Milan this past weekend, the France native stepped out sporting one of D&G's Queen of Hearts-inspired gown, complete with a red rose crown. She walked alongside Haley Baldwin.
