The Production: "Films d'epoque" Old Hollywood Films Theme
As has been the case in past Miss France productions, this year's show--which had a "Films d'epoque" (Old Hollwood Films) theme, was FABULOUS--lots of dance numbers, lots of costume changes and many different segments involving tributes to Musical Comedies, Western, Science Fiction, Romantic Films and Animation. The dance numbers kept the Finals moving with a fast pace and the interest very high for the audience and viewers (an estimated 8.5 million in France!). Miss France beauty pageant is constantly one of the BEST productions, in terms of a TV show.
One Shoulder Gowns, Feathered Fans and 1920's headdresses--The Introduction of Miss France 2015 Finals involved the overall Theme of this year's pageant: "films d'epoque" (Classic Old Hollywood Films)
Musical Comedies Segment:

A La Coquete de l'ouest Segment:
"Conquering The West" segment was a fun costumed portion of the pageant highlighting the old Western movies...showing the contestants in sexy "Cowgirl" hi-lo torso-corseted ensembles. Oh and yes, lots of HOT sexy Cowboys in tight jeans and tight Western shirts (and the requisite Cowboy hats of course!). It was very Madonna "Don't Tell Me" Video Homage.
