Miss France 2002, now former general manager of the Miss France company, spoke to “Parisian” about her departure and the future of the pageant.
pylvie Tellier is saying goodbye to Miss France. If she officially passed the torch to Cindy Fabre at the head of the Miss France company last September, she will participate in the election of the beauty queen 2023 on Saturday December 17 in Châteauroux as honorary president. The rules of the competition have changed a lot since its departure (for example, there is no longer an age limit). And she expressed reservations on certain points, but did not try to criticize the work of Alexia Laroche-Joubert, president of the Miss France society, and Cindy Fabre. “I don’t want to judge the new rules. Any change is good. Go shut up,” she interjected The ParisianWednesday, December 14.
During this interview, Sylvie Tellier also returned to the press conference, which caused controversy because she briefly clashed with Alexia Laroche-Joubert: “I found it amazing that she recognized a semantic error by saying that I did not produce the show when I had an artistic eye.”
“I was offended”
Since this little incident, everything has returned to normal between the two women. “I was sad because we all work together. It’s not because we don’t agree that we’re in tension. And I’m so happy to simply be Miss France 2002 again,” added Sylvie Tellier.
At the time of finally turning the page, the young woman regrets something. Especially not seeing Diane Leyre, the current Miss France, competing for Miss Universe 2023 and therefore not being able to accompany her in this major international pageant. However, Sylvie Tellier retains Iris Mittenaere’s victory at the same competition in 2016 among her best memories.
