The year passes at breakneck speed, and it is not Diane Leyre who will say the opposite. Our Miss France 2022 is already halfway through her reign. While she won the beauty title in December 2021, the pretty brunette is already starting to prepare for the election for her succession. The Committee has already spoken about the competition which will take place between now and the end of the year. This week, in the new issue of Gala magazine, Alexia Laroche-Joubert spoke about the new features of Miss France.
The president of Miss France Committee was actually questioned by our colleagues about the rules to follow to present themselves as a candidate for the Miss France competition. As a reminder, some time ago the conditions were still very strict and not everyone could claim the crown. The rule, available onlinehas long been considered obsolete.
A progressive regulation
As a reminder, in order to be able to take part in the Miss France contest, it was necessary in particular “not to be nor to have been married or civil partnership, not to have children”, “to be of French nationality”, “to be registered in the civil status as being female” or “not be or have not been the subject of any criminal prosecution and/or conviction”.
In this long list of conditions were also rules concerning the physical beauty. It was not necessary that the girls have piercings, big tattoos, that they have not had recourse to cosmetic surgery, and that they are at least 1m70. Finally, the candidate had to be between 18 and 24 years old. So many rules that greatly reduced the field of candidates. But from this 2023 editioneverything is going to change, as announced by Alexia Laroche-Joubert who wants to be “progressive”.
“Now it’s up to the French to accept different women”
Good news, the president of the Miss France Committee has specified that from this year there will be no no more age limit to run for the title. “You can be beautiful at any age, although I know some local committees have kept that limit to under 24. And it is their right” she told in the columns of the magazine Gala. Alexia Laroche-Joubert also said that the crown will no longer be prohibited for people who are married, in a civil partnership or have children.
Finally, she ended up confirming that young transgender women could enter the contest. “Candidates must be registered in the civil registry as being female, without asking them if they have made a sex change” she clarified. A great initiative supported by Diane LeyreMiss France 2022. “Now it’s up to the French to show that they are capable of having an open mind, of accepting new, different women as representatives of France. Women of all ages, with marital status and potentially children, with tattoos… Things that we didn’t have before.” she said in an interview with the Nice-Matin newspaper on June 17.
