Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais, Camille Cerf, has been crowned Miss France 2015 during the Miss France 2015 beauty contest on December 6, 2014 in Orleans.
This is the first time since its creation in 1920 that the Miss France beauty contest has crowned a contestant representing the Nord-Pas-de-Calais region.
Camille Cerf is only 19 years old and is in her second year of business school. She said her ambition and spontaneity are her best qualities. She had emerged as an early favourite online.
Before being crowned, she was already working in the fashion industry as she was occasionally modeling for the famous ELITE agency.
The 5’10 ½” beauty will be France’s representative to the Miss Universe pageant in January 2015 in Doral Miami. Camille beat 32 other contestants for the title including Hinirere Taputu, Miss Tahiti, who was 1st runner-up, Charlotte Pirroni, Miss Côte d’Azur, was 2nd runner-up. Malaurie Eugenie, Miss Aquitaine, and Alyssa Wurtz, Miss Alsace, were fourth and fifth. Their placements were determined by the viewing public, who made their decision through SMS and telephone voting.
