This is the first time in the beauty contest that a candidate, a mother, becomes a regional miss. A rare fact made possible thanks to the relaxation of the regulations two years ago.
Since the arrival of Alexia Laroche-Joubert as president of the Miss France company in 2021, the rules of the competition have evolved. In addition to the fact that you must be over 18 years old and measure at least 1.70 meters, the competition is now open to married participants and mothers.
This relaxation of the regulations had allowed the candidate Victoire Rousselot, married and mother, to compete in the Miss France 2023 election by representing Alsace.
Today, it is another candidate who marks the beauty contest. For the first time in the history of the Misses, a participant, a 22-year-old mother, was elected Miss Southern Alps.
Inès Chicot Roussel was awarded the crown of Miss Southern Alps on Saturday evening, in Dignes-les-Bains. A great first for a mother. “ Being the first mother to be elected is a big step in the world of misses. It’s a great first. I am proud. We pass a course. You can be a full-fledged woman, mom and miss , ”reacted the young woman for our colleagues from La Provence .
As for the delegates of Miss Provence Côte d’Azur, we are also delighted with this progress in the competition. ” It’s going to make noise […], a mom, it’s really a big leap ,” said Lydia Podossenoff, regional delegate on a daily basis.
Second step for Inès Chicot Roussel: win the crown of Miss Provence before competing for the coveted title of Miss France 2024.
