Contestants “Miss France” caused discontent on the network due to retouching on Instagram photos for the difference in their appearance in reality from pictures on social networks. The Daily Mail drew attention to the relevant messages on social networks.
According to the article, fans of the event drew attention to the difference between the contest photos of 29 finalists and how they demonstrate themselves on the Internet. So, for example, many girls had an even skin tone and improved facial contours. In addition, some of the contestants enlarged their lips or reduced their nose in photographs.
Viewers flooded Twitter with posts in which they expressed their disappointment with the candidates' appearance. “On Instagram, they are too beautiful, which makes the official photos without retouching seem disgusting”, “God, these are completely different people”, “Miss Alsace is really a beautiful woman, but I think that between a professional photo and her own photo on the social network many differences. I find this difference to be unhealthy. ”“ Contestants need to do away with social media filters, they're great without them. If you look at the official photos of the participants, you can see a clear difference, ”they said.
After the incident, the organizers of Miss France warned the girls who decided to take part in the competition to stop using retouching on their photos on Instagram and other platforms. In their opinion, in this way they deceive the audience of the competition.
Former Miss France and the director of the competition, Sylvia Tellier, also spoke on this topic in an interview with Le Parisien. “Ladies, be careful, you are entering the Miss France pageant, not the Instagram pageant! Forget about apps, you have to show yourself for who you really are. By resorting to abundant retouching, you run the risk of disappointing the public, “she warned.
The Miss France pageant will be held on December 11, 2021. The winner of the competition will be announced that night.
In April, the model confessed to being addicted to face retouching and urged to abandon it. Laura Anderson has posted several photos showing how her appearance changes with Photoshop. She warned that the constant use of retouching is addictive.
