For the first time in 103 years: a scandal erupts at the Miss France pageant because of the winner with short hair

A scandal erupts around Miss France because of the winner's short haircut

20-year-old Eve Gilles from Nord-Pas-de-Calais is the new Miss France titleholder. She is the first winner in the 103-year history of the pageant with short hair. As it turned out, not all French people, who are used to "traditional beauties with long locks," liked this.

Thus, a scandal erupted in France over the results of the contest. For some reason, viewers are convinced that the girl with the pixie hairstyle "does not deserve" the crown. This was reported by the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, Eve Gilles herself is convinced that her "masculine" haircut can become a kind of stereotype breaker about "standards of classic female beauty."

"We are used to seeing beautiful ladies with long hair, but I chose an androgynous look with short hair. My victory is a victory for diversity. No one should dictate who you are. Every woman can be different, we are all unique," Miss France responds to critics.

It is worth noting that the winner of the contest is chosen half by the public and half by the jury. According to the results of the audience vote, Eve was in third place, but the judges put her in first place.

As we've already mentioned, in the 103 years of the Miss France pageant's existence, Eve Gilles is the first winner with short hair. And this is how some French viewers react to this: "Miss France is no longer a beauty contest, but a contest based on inclusiveness," "She doesn't look like Miss France at all. We don't care about her hairstyle, but she also has an androgynous body", "Is she a drag queen?"

However, the critical voices were soon drowned out by a wave of support for the newly minted Miss France. In particular, commentators wrote the following: "The new Miss France may not be beautiful in your eyes, but to condemn her because she has short hair... This is ridiculous", "Aren't you ashamed of these sexist comments?"

Even MP Sandrine Russo, who, by the way, also wears pixies, supported Eve. She wrote on her social media: "So, in France in 2023, we will measure progress in respect for women by the length of their hair?"

Another MP, Karima Delli, wrote: "Great support for Eve Gilles in the face of hateful tweets on social media with incredible cruelty! Swallow your poison. "Miss Nord-Pas-de-Calais is not only beautiful, she is smart in embracing her diversity!"
