Thylane Blondeau, who is now 16 and recently landed her first major contract as L'Oreal's newest ambassador alongside the likes of supermodels Doutzen Kroes and Barbara Palvin, was spotted on the front row at the Michael Kors spring/summer show on Wednesday.

As well as being signed to IMG Models, she is now a social media influencer with over one million followers on Instagram.

The French beauty finished off the sophisticated look with black strappy heels and wore her ombre hair poker straight.

Thylane first shot to fame in the fashion world when she walked for Jean Paul Gaultier in Paris when she was just four years old.

Many deemed the spread as being being "too sexualized" because she had been dressed in high heels, was posing provocatively and wore heavy make-up.

Her mom later reportedly said of the shoot: "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!"
