The pre-pageant activities for the 30 contestants vying for the highly coveted Miss France 2023 have officially begun.
They arrived in Guadeloupe on Monday, November 21 for their traditional preparation trip that involves photoshoots, press meetings, catwalk exercises, and etiquette courses, among others.
Joining them were Miss France organization’s President and CEO Alexia Laroche-Joubert, former national director Sylvie Tellier, new national director Cindy Fabre and reigning queen Diane Leyre.
As part of the Miss France pageant tradition, the contestants representing various French regions and departments also have to take the ‘culture générale’ (general culture) test.
The test evaluates their general knowledge through a series of questions that could be related to current events, history, geography, and even logic and spelling.
Miss Normandie Perrine Prunier, Miss Champagne-Ardenne Solène Scholer, and Miss Rhône-Alpes Esther Coutin were announced to have achieved the top scores among all contestants.
The 93rd Miss France edition will be held on December 17 at M.A.CH 36 in Châteauroux, Centre-Val de Loire. Diane Leyre of Île-de-France will crown her successor at the end of the big show which will broadcast live on TF1.
