Charlotte Briqué is not a Miss like the others: arriving late on the beauty catwalks, she has continued to win title after title since 2017. Former communication officer at the departmental council of the Territory of Belfort, she now devotes herself fully to competitions in waiting to find a job. A rhythm that seems to suit her, since last Saturday, she offered herself the most beautiful gift by winning the title of Miss Elegance Franche-Comté.
“When the results were announced, I burst into tears”
“When the results were announced, I burst into tears because I couldn’t believe I had won. It was once I got off the stage that I realized,” exclaims Charlotte. At the bottom of the steps, his lifelong supporters: his parents and his friend Theo, present at each of his competitions.
A break in 2020
This crown is a personal consecration for the young Belfortaine who had retired from all competitions for several years. Because in 2020, the covid appeared at the same time as her master’s studies in communication and Charlotte abandoned the idea of continuing her passion. “I was in class during the week, I worked on weekends, in the evening and I participated in Miss events. It took all my time, so I decided to take a break,” says the winner.
Difficult stress management
This pause, however, only lasts for a while. Once the diploma in hand, Charlotte Briqué very quickly has the heart to go back on the stands.
Today, it is no longer a virus that fails her, but herself. Because if the new Miss Elegance is full of confidence, she still continues to encounter difficulties in her public speaking and her stress management. Points on which she works with the help of her family: “I write my presentation texts myself and I ask the opinion of my relatives before going before the jury. It helps me to know that I will be ready on D-Day, ”she explains.
The magic formula
Since her debut, Charlotte has been relentlessly refining her techniques and seems to have found the magic formula since she now has five titles to her credit: 4e runner-up of Miss 15-17 years Franche-Comté, 2e runner-up to Miss Pays de Belfort Montbéliard, 1D runner-up ambassador Franche-Comté, Miss festival committee and finally Miss Elegance Franche-Comté 2022. A remarkable record for this young woman who started competitions six years ago.
Three months to prepare for the national election
If last Saturday marks a new stage for the young woman, Charlotte Briqué does not want to stop there. “As soon as the crown was placed on my head, I was immediately given the terms of Miss France Elegance. I have less than three months to prepare myself in the best possible way,” she says. The young Belfortaine will therefore be keen to defend her city, her department and her region during this national election. And why not, add the title of Miss France Elegance 2023 to her pretty list.
