Stunning In Designerwear
Spotlighting her bust in a see-through Elie Saab number, the 21-year-old took the selfie from a high angle that also captured her waist highlighted by a thick leather belt. She sat on a gray sofa and was leaning on a red throw pillow that made her black dress pop. The outfit came with long sleeves and a mock neckline. Brown makeup complemented the nude underlay that was visible through the sheer, mesh fabric, which was decorated with swirling rows of sequins.

Blondeau wore the dress to the 2020 NRJ Music Awards, which are presented every year by the French radio station NRJ to honor the best in the French and worldwide music industry. The model shouted out the organizers in the caption, writing: "Thank you NRJ for having me yesterday !!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️"
More photos from the affair, which had Wejdene, Amel Bent, Louane, and Dadju in attendance among others, were posted on the event's Instagram page and showcased Blondeau's thigh-skimming LBD in its full glory. The model paired it with thigh-high boots and a sleek bun, proving yet again she knows how to rock a red carpet.

Modeling Since She Was 4
At 21, Blondeau already boasts a 17-year career in modeling. The French beauty first walked the runway for Jean Paul Gaultier at 4 and made her adult runway debut with Dolce & Gabbana at the 2017 Milan Fashion Week.
"My favorite part of the job is meeting new photographers and makeup artists. I love to try on the clothes, too!” she told Teen Vogue that same year. She also shared her work ethic: "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.”
Branching Into Acting
Currently signed with IMG Models, which represents the likes of Kaia Gerber and Gigi and Bella Hadid, Blondeau also has her sights on acting. The twice-crowned "most beautiful girl in the world" starred in the 2015 French film Belle & Sebastian: The Adventure Continues, telling Frivolette a while back: "After filming, I got a lot of suggestions. But at that time I was still at school, studying was for me in the first place."
The Aix-en-Provence native, whose favorite childhood movie was The Fault in Our Stars, continued: "Then I could not act, but now I'm very ready to continue my acting career."
