Miss Paris, transgender actress Andréa Furet elected 2nd runner-up

Will the new Miss Paris follow in the footsteps of her predecessor Diane Leyre, who won the crown of Miss Ile-de-France, then that of Miss France? Sunday, June 19, was held the election of Miss Paris 202 at the Lido, in Paris. On the stage of the prestigious cabaret, the candidates paraded under the encouragement of Camille Journet, the 1st runner-up to Miss Paris 2021. Diane Leyre, on the other hand, was conspicuous by her absence since she was in Montpellier with Miss Ukraine 2020 (Yelizaveta Yastremskaya) for raise funds for Ukrainian war orphans.

At the end of the competition, it was finally Océane Bobeche who won the coveted Miss Paris 2022 scarf. The 25-year-old young woman, seamstress in a large French luxury house, will be supported during her reign by Adèle Bonnamour (elected 2nd runner-up) and Andréa Furet (elected 1st runner-up). “Last year, I was second runner-up to Diane Leyre and I tried my luck again because I believed in it. I am persistent. Thanks to the rule change, I have this scarf,” she commented to TF1info . The age limit for participating in the competition has been lifted.

The face of the 1st runner-up is not entirely unknown since TF1 viewers were able to discover her in the TV movie “He is she”. Andréa Furet marks the history of the beauty contest since she is the very first transgender woman to participate. “I always wanted to do it and when I realized it was possible, I did it. I don’t regret it!”, She told TF1info. “A lot of girls couldn’t have participated last year and are coming together again this year. Long live progress!” Progress encouraged by Alexia Laroche-Joubert, new president of the Miss France society.
