Iris Mittenaere, our Miss France 2016, has been crowned this night to Miss Universe 2016 at the election held in Manila. “regardless of the result“, she wrote a few hours earlier in a message of thanks to his supporters, but when the time came, the forecasts, saw her go very far in the competition are confirmed as follows : the Lille 25-year-old has been crowned, the Miss Haiti Raquel Pelissier and Miss Colombia Andrea Tovar becoming for their share of its 1st and 2nd dauphine. Superb in her dress of the creator Huang Hai, it was perfect until the end, managing to tame them beautifully his emotion.
“Incredible!!!!! She has done!!! So proud!!!“, she congratulated her in a tweet Sylvie Tellier, director general of the company Miss France, she even Miss France 2002. “historic Moment“, emphasized the account Instagram Miss France, and for good reason : Iris, a student of fifth year of dental surgery, is simply the first French-sacred Miss Universe since 1953, the year of the triumph of the Lorraine Christiane Martel.
The presenter american Steve Harvey, master of ceremonies of the election, he will be mercifully spared an emotional lift to avoid being wrong at the time of the announcement of the winner, unlike the previous edition which had seen in December, 2015, the victory of the Philippine Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach.
Our beauty queen French, that we heartily congratulate, has caused a sensation throughout the event especially during the tour pre-selection, in his suit, iconic Red Mill, and in the final, where, during the last round of questions, she gave a speech opening : “Have open borders can enable us to browse the world and discover a little more about our neighbours“, she said to the host who asked him about the crisis of migrants in Europe. At the time of the beginning of the mandate of Donald Trump at the White House, Miss Kenya, Mary Esther Were, which has ended among the most finalists (4th), was even more explicit, ensuring that the new head of the State, “had perhaps not been the first choice of many people“.

Sylvie Tellier has referred, in a press release by the Organization of Miss France, the victory and the immediate future of his protégé : “It is with immense emotion that we lived a historical moment in its sides.
