- Since Wednesday, the thirty regional evils that wish to become Miss France 2019 are in Mauritius.
- Photos, videos for the afternoon of the elections … The trip serves as a framework for several images.
- But behind these images, it is also used to evaluate the group.
Fine sand, turquoise water, relaxed and smiling … in Mauritius, the miss is mimes. Located in a luxury hotel, spoiled by a team of makeup artists, hairdressers and stylists, surely will make a trip that will mark your life. But it is also here that we begin to judge them to see if they have their shoulders to become
Miss France. And that is not an easy task.
They extend at 5:00 a.m. before the busy days, the mass must be pleasant with all the people who meet during the day. Beauty equipment, photographers, journalists, hotel staff … Everyone should feel comfortable with them. "For example, on Wednesday, Miss Tahiti had a busy day and was very available to everyone, says Caroline Gavignet, the artistic producer of the Miss France program. It is important for us not to distinguish the teams. And everyone is watching.
"The general culture contest is important"
Two chaperones, beauty teams, professionals preparing for the competition, Sylvie Tellier and production are attentive to the qualities of regional misses. "We see everything," jokes Miss France's executive director. More particularly, the spirit of the camaraderie, the elegance, the good customs … And, of course, the photogeny and the way of walking, we are in a beauty contest. For Miss France 2002, "the general culture contest is important". But other members of the selection panel highlight other qualities.
Because the teams that surround the girls during the trip are also those who will vote for the selection of the twelve candidates who can continue the adventure, which was revealed on television on election evening. "We pay close attention to the evolution of a girl, says Sylvie Tellier. That's why the preparation lasts one month. Arrived in Lille for the last straight line, the counters return to zero . "
The trip of the masses is, for many, the first opportunity to scrub the life of Miss France. "There are girls who take things lightly and who have not understood the subject: the mission of France is being asked daily and needs to be able to adapt to any situation, says Caroline Gavignet. We offer you the opportunity to lose & # 39; 39; t to realize that it is not for them and to tell us they do not want to become Miss France. "
Are you looking for a wrong step?
According to the opinion of the Miss France organization, it can not be dismissed after only one error. "The idea is not to blame them, believes Caroline Gavignet. You think it's important to understand that it is a possibility to be there, even if they have important schedules and obligations. The same story that Sylvie Tellier, who after reflection finds unacceptable defects.
"A girl that responds to production is not possible. In a pinch, stupidity goes by, but we apologize, slice Sylvie Tellier. A girl who does not trust the art, also does not happen. There are some who, # Have gone to makeup artists, eliminate everything to do it again. This is not correct, especially because the teams are open to the discussion. In general, we do not like those who do not respect people, who are not Friendly with the girlfriend. In general, what goes to the bathroom knowing that the other will not be able to prepare, which does not wake up the girlfriend who lost the alarm … "
"A dream awake"
Next to the mass, the same sound of the bell. Estelle Sabathier, communications officer of Miss France, had a life to miss before. Representative of Brittany in 2012, shared the room of Marina Lorphelin, Miss France 2013, in Mauritius during the preparatory voyage. For her, this trip continues to be an enchanting parenthesis: "I remember everything like yesterday, all staff, every smile … For me it was a dream. We overwhelmed ourselves with gifts."
"Of course, it's a beauty contest, so I made sure I was at the head every night to point out, explains the Breton. From the beginning I understood that you have to be kind to everyone all the time. For me, Miss France was and still is the school of life. I really think that we learn, we enrich this adventure. I gained a lot of confidence in myself and allowed me to succeed in my memory. "
And, obviously, the qualities of the Mass had seduced the jury of the time. "I was finished at twelve, remember Estelle Sabathier. They told me that it was a natural choice because it was a complete mass. And I am very proud to say that I have been second in the general culture test. And to say, Miss France's school was so beneficial that she offered her a job where she, in turn, sent advice to newcomers.
