5. Up until this one
In one of her shoots for Vogue, her image was considered to be extremely sexualised which created a huge controversy.
6. According to psychologist Emma Grey,
“This is not what a normal child should go through – this incident shows how some children’s lives are ruined when they are shown the real world they are still not able to deal with unless there are adults around that child for proper guidance.”
7. The Christian Charity
“We are anxious about Blondeau’s agency since it seems that they have no idea that she is not yet an adult, but only a child.”
8. According to her mother
She admitted that she was quite shocked during the initial photo shoot. But she wasn’t shocked because of her daughter; she was shocked because her daughter was wearing a necklace whose price was €3 million! She also said that she only accepts a quarter of the offers her daughter receives, because she wants her childhood to be normal like any other child.
9. Since she was so young at that time
She wasn’t allowed to say whatever she wanted!

12. She is also an actor, apart from being a model.
She acted in the French film Belle & Sebastian.
13. She was asked in an interview whether she felt weird after becoming a model at such a young age.
She replied that she didn’t feel that she was too young for modeling since Kate Moss began modeling when she was fifteen. She added that there are no issues at all if your agency is a good one.
14. When she attended Paris Fashion Week, W Magazine asked her what her plans were after the end of this event.
Her reply was a practical one – she said she would go home, rest for a bit and then get prepared to go to school. Even though she is quite young, she knows what her primary duties are!
