Cilou Annys (born 20 March 1991) is a Belgian beauty pageant contestant from Bruges who won Miss Belgium 2010 on 10 January 2010.[1] She is also Miss West Flanders. Annys, the 80th Miss Belgium, accepted the crown from Zeynep Sever, Miss Belgium 2009.

Controversy[edit]

Annys caused controversy when she posed on the cover of P-Magazine, standing on the Belgian flag, with Flemish nationalist politician Bart De Wever pictured cutting her "Miss Belgium" sash.[2]

Annys and the national committee of the Miss Belgium contest immediately issued a press release in which they apologized to anyone who may have been offended by this image.

Miss Universe 2010[edit]

She placed in the Top 15 at the Miss Universe 2010 pageant held on 23 August 2010 in Las Vegas, Nevada and competed in Miss World 2010 a few months later.

Personal life[edit]

Annys studies interpreting and translation (French and Spanish) at the Hogeschool Gent.
