 Crowning Moment: Flora Coquerel "Miss Orleanais" being crowned "Miss France 2014" by the outgoing "Miss France" Marine Lorphelin

The 85th edition of "Miss France" happened this past Saturday night. Thirty-three candidates from France and its territories, islands, competed for the coveted title. The winner was 19 year-old Flora Coquerel "Miss Orleanais", who stands 1. 82 M (almost 6 feet!).

Flora's mother is incidentally from the West African nation of Benin and this is the very first time the crown is won by a representative of the region of the city Orléans, France. Flora now gets the chance to represent France in next year's "Miss World" pageant.
