Miss France believes Leila Lopes shouldn’t have won the Miss Universe crown

Following the Miss Universe pageant, Miss France gave an interview to a French magazine in which she made a series of remarks from which it is clear that she believes Miss Angola Leila Lopes shouldn’t have won the crown, the Washington Post reports.

Just a couple of days after the Miss Universe pageant crowned its 2011 queen, one of the beauties in the contest speaks against the new most beautiful woman in the world, stating that she doesn’t see the reason for which Leila Lopes, Miss Angola, is now wearing the crown.
Miss France, Laury Thilleman, talked to about Miss Angola’s unpleasant behavior, her lack of personality and her questionable fashion taste. Her declaration started with the complaint that Lopes was not sociable. “She was the only girl I didn’t know very well. We didn’t see her much.” Then she criticized her looks. “She was often in jeans and not wearing makeup. We were all surprised by her win”. Thilleman explains that many other contestants worked more and were not rewarded as they should have been.  “I don’t know, something is missing in her temperament”, the 20-year-old French beauty added.

Miss France believes that the main reason Lopes won is that the contest was held in Brazil. “The fact that the competition was held in Brazil surely played a role.” Miss France was in the top 10 finalists and Miss Brazil made it to the top 3.

Miss Universe judge, Lea Salonga, gave an interview to Funfare in which she says she believes that the contestants and the public should respect the judges’ decision, as it was made fairly. “We were told to judge them all objectively. What I now don’t understand is the brouhaha following the pageant’s conclusion”, she said. “Everyone needs to respect the judges’ decision. I stand by my ranking.”

  1. What? Comon miss France……. I have never see a white contentant complain when a white miss universe is crowned.

    Why not you guys …..instead of Miss Universe Pageant you guys should change to Miss white Universe……..

  2. U Miss France atleast dn’t behave stupidly, if u had the potentials, inner and outer beauty you should atleast be as the 1st or 2nd runner up. then why isn’t it so? [*****]. why ddn’t any other contestant complaint to the global media only you don’t agree with the jugement!!!

  3. That was a very ugly comment by miss france..Leila deserved the win..and to rectify her..a beautiful woman is beautiful even without make-up..stop being jelous gal…wake up..u will never succeed in life with that kind of attitude…we are one world and anyone deserved the win…….

  4. Funny how now that more & more folks of other cultures are winning regularly, now we get comments like it’s not a big deal & real countries have more important things to do huh?
    For the record from 1952-1971 these events were held in the US, specifically CA & FL. Funny how once it got other countries involved in the process and as more & more different cultures have been winning more & more it’s become less important.
    Fact is this started as product promotion for swimwear and that’s all it’s ever been. Still no need to get rude just because now the rules are actually set up so other folks IN OUR UNIVERSE can win.
    It’s been a set-up from day 1, don’t get all self-righteous NOW!

  5. who do you think u are? i think u are the who have unpleasant behavior. try to look at your face before you discriminate others. youre just **** jealous. you’ll never succeed!

  6. Well, I can say that Miss Angola really deserved that crown. Miss Angola has beauty and brains, and she doesn’t need those makeups to be beautiful, unlike Miss France.

  7. Glad my country won.
    “not wearing makeup”, that’s because she is already beautiful. Others are using a kilogram of make up, which does means they find their selves not beautiful enough. There’s a lot of hate, just because Leila lopes won.
    Just after a few days after she won, people are saying that she had false documents, that is not true. They also said that she is Cuban because of the fact hat she understands Spanish a little bit, while she said that she is 100% Angolan, at an interview. Most people probably don’t know that Portuguese is the official language of Angola, so we understand Spanish a little. At the same interview she made clear that she participated to the pertaing contest whithout falsified documents.

  8. Miss france jux accept da fact dat u r no match wit sweet leila,please don’t tell me u r a racist,nd oh MISS ANGOLA was damn hot nd deserved da crown a 100 times dan u(WITHOUT MAKEUPS).

  9. Lot of times we had watched the pageant, there was no doubt why Ms. Lopes won. Despite having our own bet, we know she’s the one. With or without make-up she deserves the crown… That night she was simply regal, queenly and brilliant in all her simplicity….. so smart. Congratulations Ms. Leila Lopes for winning the crown! By the way, the interpreter, in fact, distract her in a way. But her line of thought was so clear, and her answer was clearly understand, and amazingly admired.

  10. well just because Miss France looks like a stripper hot but dirty Miss Angola won because she looks like a princess haha more botox for you didn’t realise not wearing makeup was a sign of not being good looking quite clearly her beauty is bought not god given

  11. Not only does she NOT need to wear make up, but she was probably saving up the torture the skin has to go through with all of that make up for the actual pageant. Her skin was flawless at the pageant, so she obviously has good skin care habits. Wearing make up every day could have worked her skin up on top of the stress that she must have been under.
    France…i actually liked you for a minute there, but now that i see you’re just an immature plastic girl, i am glad Angola won. You’re just racist and can’t believe that a woman with the looks of Leila could be the most beautiful woman out of all of the other candidates that represent diverse locations in the world. Such Eurocentric can’t represent global issues of today.

  12. Miss Angola has a classical beauty than that of Miss France. The face of Miss France is so ugly that I can’t even differentiate if her face is a man’s or a woman’s. Her ugliness of her face reflects the ugliness of her character.

  13. We should all RESPECT each other and our differencess,learn from each other and never hate,your strongest and only critic is yourself,learn to celebrate your natural beauty!
