It was therefore Indira Ampiot, Miss Guadeloupe, who was elected Miss France 2023. The 18-year-old young woman won the title of beauty queen against Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Agathe Cauet during a ceremony placed under the sign of cinema.
The young woman, aged 18, has just graduated with a bachelor’s degree with honors. In an interview with The Link Fwi, the new Miss France spoke about her career. “So, before my election, I was finishing my year of Terminale. I passed my Baccalaureate which I obtained with honors”, she had declared and added: “Subsequently, I applied to several schools of communication and I was also accepted in a school of communication in mainland France to specialize in visual and advertising communication in order to become Artistic Director”.
A young woman who is not there by chance despite her age. Indeed, his own mother was part of the world of Miss France and participated in the election in 1988. “The competition is something that has always attracted me since my mother participated in this election in 1998 where she was elected first runner-up to Miss Guadeloupe after being Miss Basse-Terre, so I grew up in this world,” she continued. “Indira has also obtained the majority of votes from viewers and jurors,” said Gala Cindy Fabre, Sylvie Tellier’s replacement. “She is a woman of 2023, determined, ‘warrior’, but with values and an attachment to her family. And despite her youth, she is already showing exemplary maturity.” For Indira Ampiot, this “crown is a little revenge on life”.
The 103rd edition of the prestigious Miss France beauty contest is fast approaching and like every year, there will be disappointed regional Misses. The ceremony will take place next December in Châteauroux and will be the last for Sylvie Tellier. The director general of Miss France has indeed announced, this Tuesday, August 30, 2022, that she would leave her post after 17 years of service. Cindy Fabre will succeed him.
Some of the candidates are already known, reports TV Mag. The regional elections indeed began last June. Here are the faces of those who will try to succeed Diane Leyre, elected last year.
We finally know who will be the members of the jury for the election of Miss France 2023! While the 93rd Miss France election will be held in Châteauroux on December 17, the name of the president and the members of the jury have been revealed by TF1. This year, the famous comedian Francis Huster succeeds Jean-Pierre Pernaut, who died suddenly shortly after March 22, 2022, as president of the jury for the Miss France 2023 election. By his side to elect the new beauty queen of the French, we will find the judoka and Olympic champion Clarisse Agbegnenou, the singer Kendji Girac, the actress, singer and humorist Camille Lellouche, the actor and producer Dominique Besnehard, the Miss France 2013, Marine Lorphelin and finally the actor Arnaud Ducret. This year, the candidate “who will be designated Miss France 2023 will be submitted to the 50/50 votes of the jury and the viewers”, recall the organizers in their press release.
After a ceremony dedicated to the theme of musicals in 2021, the Miss France competition will have cinema as its theme this year. During the ceremony, the 30 candidates vying for the title will parade on nine different tables based on the greatest classics of cinema such as Harry Potter or Amélie Poulain. As a reminder, this year will also mark the last of Sylvie Tellier who announced her departure from the position of general manager of Miss France after 17 years of good and loyal service and who will leave her place to producer Alexia Laroche-Joubert.
After Miss Ile-de-France in 2022, we will know this Saturday, December 17 who will be the next Miss France 2023. But know that if certain regions such as Ile-de-France, Normandy or Alsace have seen the election of very many Miss France, others have never had this chance since the first edition of the Miss France ceremony organized in 1920.
Indeed, several territories have never had the privilege of seeing their Miss win the coveted crown each year. These are the regions:
Miss Provence, who very regularly arrives first runner-up in recent years, has also been waiting for 39 years for Provence to be crowned. (and Jean-Pierre Foucault too!). Corsica has only seen its Miss France elected once 100 years ago!
Conversely, since Miss Paris became Miss France in 1932, a total of 16 young women from Paris and Ile-de-France have been elected Miss France (13 Miss Paris and 3 Miss Île-de- France).

“We are not in a revolution but in an evolution”, wanted to reassure TV Magazine Alexia Laroche-Joubert. The one who was named president of the Miss France society in October 2021 returned to the changes she decided to make to the historic beauty contest. “The rule change is recent, it’s only the first year,” says the television producer. As a reminder, from now on, in order to be able to present themselves to Miss France, it is sufficient that the participants be over the age of 18, measure at least 1m70, and be female in the civil status. “The candidates who present themselves must not have made pornographic films or photographs or have had criminally reprehensible remarks”, she also announced in the columns of TV Magazine. The age limit of 24 has been lifted and mothers and married women can now also compete. Tattoos are now also allowed. “It seems quite normal to me and very revealing of society because today many people have a tattoo, regardless of their age”.
“The biggest impact of the changes to the regulations was on age”, assures the president of the Miss France society, who is delighted “that they did not hesitate to register!”. “Our criteria have changed but not our values which remain elegance, repartee, general culture, naturalness, photogenicity, charisma and finally empathy because Miss France goes out to meet people”, wanted to reassure Alexia Laroche-Joubert in the columns of TV Magazine when the next edition of the competition will be held on December 17 in Châteauroux.
The assassin pikes shot out. The handover between Alexia Laroche-Joubert and Sylvie Tellier which was done with loss and a crash. Almost a month to the day before the election of Miss France 2023, the former and the new boss of Miss France publicly settled their accounts this Friday, December 18 during the press conference organized by the company Miss France in the company of thirty regional misses, two days before going to Guadeloupe for their training trip.
If Sylvie Tellier has long ensured that her departure from the post of general manager of Miss France, we can now doubt it. The two women did not fail to tear themselves apart throughout the event in front of the journalists. As reported by Le Parisien, the little murderous phrases have fused. “A miss belongs to no one”, notably sent Sylvie Tellier to Alexia Laroche-Joubert, in a humorous tone, who retorted: “You mean, Sylvie, that you are not mine?” . “Thank you Sylvie for taking me back, it’s too nice of you to correct me”, also added the new boss of Miss France to the former Miss France 1999.
Sylvie Tellier to Alexia Laroche-Joubert
The tense exchange reached its climax when Alexia Laroche-Joubert assured that “Sylvie was not working on the show”, specifying in front of the former director of the Miss France Society: “You did not produce the show “. A reflection that Sylvie Tellier did not support. “Me? I didn’t work on this show? I can’t let you say that. I worked on this show for 17 years!”, Lost the forties. Faced with the outburst of the former Miss, the producer let out one: “Excuse me if I offended you”. “Yes, you upset me. We must have consideration for what has been done for 17 years,” replied Sylvie Tellier, to conclude a press conference more tense than ever.
This Wednesday, December 14, Sylvie Tellier drove the point home by renewing in Le Parisien her disagreement with the new rules of the competition introduced by Alexia Laroche-Joubert. “I did not agree on the change of rules”, delivered frankly the ex-director general of the Miss France Society. The former Miss France has already revealed that she is opposed to the participation of mothers in the competition, the Miss France program being, according to her, incompatible with an empty family. She also confided that she was not consulted at all as to the choice of her successor, Cindy Fabre, Miss France 2004. “This choice is entirely that of Alexia Laroche-Joubert and I did not participate in it at all. Alexia knew her because she had produced the program of her election“, she specifies on a daily basis.
Despite an open conflict with Alexia Laroche-Joubert, Sylvie Tellier admitted that “she is a great television producer”. She also made a point of clarifying that they had personal similarities as women. “We have things in common: we are two women of character. I spent 17 years of my life working for Miss France, I spent a lot of weekends away from my family, I made a lot of sacrifices . And I’m glad it’s Alexia, with her expertise in big shows, who protects this program,” said Miss France 1999.
It’s the end of an era at Miss France. After 17 years of good and loyal service, Sylvie Tellier, general manager of Miss France, left office on August 30. However, she retains the honorary title of Honorary President of the Miss France society, reports Le Parisien. In addition, he still has a role to play before leaving the company for good.
“Alexia Laroche-Joubert offered me to keep an advisory role alongside them until December, which I accepted, because it was important for me to accompany our partners until the election. On the other hand, I wanted to leave my functions now, because I did not want to launch projects for next year“, she explained to our colleagues from TV Mag.
Thus, we will still be able to find Sylvie Tellier alongside Jean-Pierre Foucault to present the ceremony one last time live from Châteauroux on TF1 next December. “I’m not leaving because of the arrival of Alexia Laroche- Joubert, who is a great television professional, but because I feel like I have achieved my goals”, wanted to assure the former Miss France 1999 in the face of rumors of a falling out between the two women. A departure that she does not seem to regret at all. After her announcement in August, one of her followers asked her on Instagram if she regretted her choice. “Absolutely not! Entrepreneurship gives me wings and a smile!!!”, she replied with a smile.
“Unfortunately, I will not be able to participate in the Miss Universe contest due to lack of time and preparation a few weeks before my Miss France title presentation, next December”, said Diane Leyre in this press release. “I don’t like to do things by halves when it comes to representing France (…)”, added Miss France 2022. It is therefore Clémence Botino, Miss France 2020, who will participate in the Miss World contest 2023 and Floriane Bascou, the first runner-up to Miss France 2022, who will replace Diane Leyre to represent France at Miss Universe.
As a reminder, Miss Universe 2022 will take place on January 14, 2023 in New Orleans, Louisiana in the United States. It’s only a month after the next Miss France election, on December 17.
A decision that seems to pain Diane Leyre a lot, who confided in this subject to the antenna of Virgin Radio this October 12. “Miss Universe has always been a dream, I’ve been talking about it since I became Miss Île-de-France. I would have been really happy to be able to represent France, go there and give my all. Especially since a lot of people supported me … Unfortunately, I couldn’t,” she said apologetically, adding that she was “super sad.”
This Saturday, December 11, Diane Leyre, Miss Ile-de-France 2021, was elected Miss France 2022 at the Zénith de Caen (Normandy). She succeeds Amandine Petit as beauty ambassador in France. At 24, the Francilienne works in the real estate sector. Passionate about reading and boxing, the young woman confides in her portrait that a Miss France has “a real media role. She transmits beautiful messages and beautiful values”.
The 29 regional Misses selected to participate in Miss France 2022 have finally been designated. Organized behind closed doors last year, it is this time in a full Zénith de Caen that Miss France Miss France 2022 will be crowned in public on Saturday December 11. We will have to wait another month to find out who will succeed Amandine Petit, Miss France 2021.
The organization has announced the opening of the ticket office from Wednesday, November 10 at 9 a.m. According to Ouest-France, in just an hour and a quarter, all the seats available at the Louvigny ticket office had already been sold, making many disappointed. The citylive.fr website was also taken by storm. At 11 a.m. on the day of its opening, the site indicated that “this event is closed for sale on the Web”.
During the election, the health rules will be the same as those applied for concerts, namely the presentation of the health pass. An election which, like every year, will be broadcast on TF1 and presented by Jean-Pierre Foucault. A show that should be different since Alexia Laroche-Joubert took office at the head of the Miss France Society who wants to “rebalance” the show so that “the participants tell each other more”.
This Wednesday, November 17, Sylvie Tellier was the guest of the 1 p.m. newspaper of TF1. She took the opportunity to give more details on the ceremony on December 11, which will aim to elect Miss France 2022. It will be “a great show”, assured the artistic director of Miss France Frédéric Gilbert. This year, the election will be organized on the theme of musicals. “We are going to take the French to revisit the greatest musicals of the Lion King, passing by Lalaland, West Side Story or Singing in the rain”, specified Sylvie Tellier. “It’s a big job since Frédéric Gilbert has been working on it for over a year for this ceremony. A nice show to live live”, promised the former Miss France.
This Monday, November 15, the twenty-nine regional beauty queens met for the first time in Paris. A new adventure for young women that Sylvie Tellier wanted to immortalize in an Instagram story: “Well, here we are: a year of preparation for this beautiful election of Miss France 2022. D-Day, top start: the candidates have arrived! The adventure begins!”, Wrote the general manager of Miss France for nearly 15 years. According to Le Journal des Femmes, the candidates met the producer of the show before receiving their gifts and their official scarf. Currently housed at the M Social Hotel Paris on Boulevard Haussmann, the beauty queens will leave for their traditional preparation trip to Reunion Island from this Wednesday, November 17.
Call to order of Miss France by Sylvie Tellier. The candidates to succeed Amandine Petit in the Miss France 2022 election were strongly reframed by the general manager of the Miss France Society about the retouched photos on Instagram. In question, the virulent comments of Internet users on the abuse of retouching by the candidates on their social networks. After the official photos were revealed, they complained about the stark difference from those shared by the young women. An abuse that Sylvie Tellier noticed and which prompted her to call the candidates to order. “We are in a society of the image more and more with social networks (…) And this generation of young women has this reflex of retouching the photo much easier. But we must make the difference between photos from social networks and ours”, specified the director of the competition in the columns of Parisian. She mandated Amandine Petit to warn the regional Misses. “She spoke about it in her speech to the candidates for the regional elections. She said to them ‘Ladies, be careful, you are in the Miss France contest, not in the Instagram contest! So you forget your applications, because you are in reality. By retouching too much, you risk generating disappointing reactions when you arrive in the Miss France adventure, ”explained Sylvie Tellier about the 29 contenders.
We know the president and the six members of the jury for the election of Miss France 2022. At the microphone of RTL, Jean-Pierre Pernaut announced on Monday November 29 that he was appointed president of the jury and took the opportunity to reveal the names of the six jurors who will accompany him on December 11. “I am immensely happy and proud to have been asked by the Miss France committee and by Sylvie Tellier to be the president of the jury for the next Miss France election”, revealed the former presenter of the 1 p.m. newspaper. from TF1. It is therefore the singer Amel Bent, the humorist Inès Reg, the Miss France 2012 Delphine Wespiser, the dancer and choreographer and jury of DALS François Alu, the actor and director Philippe Lacheau, and the humorist Ahmed Sylla who will designate the one who will succeed to Amandine Petit.
