Miss France 2023: the candidates
Impromptu visits to rooms will occur to assess their level of organization. Apprentice beauty queens will finally follow courses in good manners, “catwalk” (parade) and, this is a first, fashion during which they will be taught in particular what outfit to wear for which occasion and, above all, what are the “fashion faux pas” to avoid.
This stay is also an opportunity for the regional Misses to get to know each other. Apart from Miss Languedoc and Miss Roussillon who have already met in their region, the girls do not know each other yet. Sharing the room (two, in alphabetical order of the scarves), visits to the island, canoe-kayak excursions or even the different evenings will allow them to get closer.
Finally, on site Clemence Botino , Miss Guadeloupe 2019 and Miss France 2020, will play the guides. As evidenced by her Instagram account, the 25-year-old has already been on her home island for a few days. For the anecdote, after her coronation, she had to return there but the confinement linked to the Covid-19 had prevented her from doing so.
