French Child Star Thylane Blondeau is L’Oreal’s Newest Face


L’Oreal has been on a hiring spree over the past year. In an attempt to diversify the brand and stay relevant to an increasingly millennial global consumer, the cosmetics giant has announced several new faces including African model, Maria Borges and its first transgender ambassador, Hari Nef. And the brand has been adding more unconventional models to its roster—the most recent example is the once-controversial French face, Thylane Blondeau, who ignited controversy back in 2011 when she appeared in Vogue Paris wearing what was thought to be “adult” makeup at age 10. Blondeau is the daughter of French footballer Patrick Blondeau and television presenter Veronika Loubry.

News of her becoming L’Oreal’s latest brand ambassador came on her 16th birthday yesterday. In her new role, Blondeau will tap into her one-million-plus Instagram following, as well as make official appearances in campaigns for L’Oreal’s hair, makeup, and skincare categories. It’s been be reported that her first appearance will be in ads for the brand’s Hydra Genius range of moisturizers.

In a statement from L’Oréal’s global brand president, Pierre-Emmanuel Angeloglou, he sings her praises. “Truly inspiring thousands and thousands of young women, Thylane is a voice for a generation that spends more time connecting to each other than any generation before it, sharing images more than words. This new generation deeply needs aspirational models that reimagine and influence beauty through their creativity and styling. L’Oréal Paris is thrilled to welcome Thylane to join the brand that’s driving digitalized beauty forward, to be an ambassador for the most genius products designed for young women looking for self-confidence and empowerment like her.”
