Miss France 2021: the candidates cropped because of their retouched photos on Instagram Amandine Petit, Miss France 2021, and Sylvie Tellier reminded 29 candidates for the Miss France election 2022 that editing and filtering on Instagram could be dangerous. This sets a bad example for young audiences and voters may not recognize them on election night.
29 candidates for the election of Miss France 2022 are currently on a preparatory trip to Reunion, accompanied in particular by Amandine Petit, Miss France 2021, and Sylvie Tellier. Amandine Petit has indeed preferred to stay alongside the candidates rather than to appear in the Miss World and Miss Universe competition (in which she had already participated). This trip is an opportunity for the candidates to receive advice from the young Normande and to prepare for the big election night, on 11 December 2021 next.
During this week in Reunion, young women were notably entitled to a photo shoot. And these official photos are not retouched, Sylvie Tellier told us during the Miss France press presentation on 11 November 2021. “We can retouch the lights”, but never the faces and the bodies, she specified. However, some candidates have the habit of retouching their photos on the Instagram social network. You know, with these filters that make your skin smoother, that make your mouth fuller and your eyes bigger… Some Miss use these filters on their Instagram accounts, so some fans didn’t recognize them on their official photos. Many Internet users have even published posts comparing the official photos and Instagram photos of some candidates on Twitter.
Miss France, “not an Instagram contest” The Parisian reveals that Amandine Petit warned 25 young women against filters and retouching: “Ladies, beware, 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 deceptive reactions when you arrive in the Miss adventure. France. ” If everyone can have complexes, including beauty queens, the example given to young people who watch the contest and follow them on Instagram is bad: it consists of say that you can always improve your appearance, even if it means looking like everyone else and no longer being yourself. Imagine what the young audience will think, if even the “most beautiful women in France” resort to retouching …
More broadly, we asked Sylvie Tellier about the role of Instagram in the election, since some regional Miss already have a strong community on this social network. The director of the committee indicated that “people who vote are not on Instagram” , even if the platform remains “a display case”. “There are plenty of French people who are not on Instagram (…), we must not neglect them and think of everyone.”
