Laury Thilleman (born 30 July 1991) is a French beauty pageant titleholder, dancer, model and TV Presenter who was crowned Miss France 2011 on 4 December 2010. She made the top 10 at Miss Universe 2011.
Thilleman, who stands 1.79 m (5 ft 10 1⁄2 in) tall, competed as Miss Bretagne in her country's national beauty pageant, Miss France 2011, held in Caen, where she would become the eventual winner of the title, gaining the right to represent France in the 2011 Miss Universe and Miss World.
Thilleman was France’s contestant in Miss Universe 2011 pageant held in São Paulo (Brazil) and ranked in top 10 (5th runner up), her 2nd runner-up in Miss France pageant, Clémence Olesky (Miss Auvergne) will represent France into the Miss World pageant, which will be held in London. In a phone interview with the newspapers Première, she had been asked what she thought about the pageant winner (Leila Lopes, Miss Angola), she replied, “She was the only girl I didn’t know very well. We didn’t see her much; she was very discreet. She was often in jeans and not wearing makeup. We were all surprised by her win. Many girls made efforts that were not rewarded. I don’t know, something is missing in her temperament. The fact that the competition was held in Brazil surely played a role.” Because of this declaration, the Washington Post made an article considering her words as scandalous, “offering some nasty, sore loser, sour grapes, culturally imperious comments about Miss Angola”.
Dance avec les stars
Thilleman took part on the fourth season of French show Dance avec les stars (Dancing with the stars). She finished on fifth place with her dancing partner Maxime Dereymez. She also attended the first Dance avec les stars tour.
