Thylane opted for a black jumper with ripped detailing, as well as a pair of skinny jeans and matching studded denim jacket. 

She opted for comfort in a pair of lace-up boots while her mother Veronica Loubry snapped away. 

Sporting a glamorous coat of make-up, Thylane's glossy brunette tresses blew effortlessly in the wind. 

Earlier on in the day, Thylane cut a more casual figure as she went make-up free while strolling along the Croisette.

The teen wore a simple vest top, casual navy bottom while tying the accompanying sweat top around her waist. 

Thylane, the daughter of the French TV presenter Véronika Loubry and soccer player Patrick Blondeau, earned her 'most beautiful girl in the world' title after making her debut as a child model. 

When she was just four years old, she walked the runway for the French designer Jean-Paul Gaultier.

A few years later, Thylane, aged 10, appeared in a controversial Vogue spread that many blamed for sexualizing young girls by making them pose in grown-up outfits and full faces of make-up.

Since then, Thylane, who is represented by the American talent agency WME as well as the New-York-City-based IMG Models, has continued her modelling career, walking the Dolce & Gabbana runway twice last year.

She has also become a brand ambassador for L'Oréal Paris and built an impressive Instagram following of 1.9 million.
