Miss Lopes made her way to NYC yesterday just days after getting crowned in Brazil, to make press rounds after stopping by the US Embassy to cop a visa:
And Ms. Lopes isn’t taking her crown without getting shade thrown at her from other contestants. Miss Fance says the other contestants don’t understand how Leila won:
Miss France, Laury Thilleman, talked to Premiere.fr 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.”
Doesn’t making public statements like these actually speak to why Miss France DIDN’T win? Just askin’….
