March 26 (UPI) -- Controversial child model Thylane Blondeau will appear on the cover of Jalouse magazine's April issue.

The 13-year-old caused controversy at age 10 in 2011 when she posed for a Paris Vogue spread with other young models. Blondeau appeared on a bed in a low-cut gold gown and stilettos, and the photos immediately raised concern about age appropriateness and the sexualization of children.

Her appearance for Jalouse is much more restrained, and features the model with a high ponytail and in a black sweater. The cover proclaims Blondeau "The New Kate Moss" and highlights her birth year with "#2001."

Young models are no stranger to the fashion world. Cindy Crawford's daughter Kaia posed for the Young Versace line when she was 10, Dakota Fanning starred for Marc by Marc Jacobs at age 13, and actress Hailee Steinfeld was 14 when she became the face of Miu Miu.
