Miss France: Sylvie Tellier replaced by Cindy Fabre at the head of the competition

This will be formalized in the hours to come, but the time for the succession of Sylvie Tellier at the head of the Miss France company has arrived. According to our information, it is indeed Cindy Fabre, Miss France 2005, who will take over at the head of the organization of the beauty contest, in particular during the regional elections from September. Sylvie Tellier will however keep an honorary title, that of Honorary President of the Miss France society, and will ensure for the last time the presentation of the ceremony with Jean-Pierre Foucault live from Châteauroux on TF 1 at the end of December.

The famous producer Alexia Laroche-Joubert – notably of “Koh-Lanta” and “Fort Boyard” – remains alone in charge of the management of the company, of which she took the reins in 2021. It was she who chose Cindy Fabre, 36, as director of the national competition, to represent “the Miss France brand”. After fifteen years at the helm, Sylvie Tellier, who began working in the shadow of Geneviève de Fontenay, is therefore turning a page.

Announced for a time as director of the future “Star Academy”, a rumor that she had denied, this trained lawyer finally launched into entrepreneurship.

This announcement puts an end to months of rumors. Other Miss like Iris Mittenaere, Camille Cerf or Marine Lorphelin had been approached, but it is finally Cindy Fabre who will have the task of implementing the renewal of the rules of the beauty contest.

The one who works today in an event company in Dijon had notably participated in the “integration trip” of Diane Leyre, Miss France 2022, in Saint-Martin in Guadeloupe last May. A way to take the temperature before jumping into the deep end.
