Miss France 2010, the 63rd Miss France pageant, was held in Nice, Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur on December 5, 2009. Malika Ménard of Normandy was crowned Miss France 2010 by the outgoing title-holder Chloé Mortaud of Albigeois Midi-Pyrénées, who was 5th runner-up at Miss Universe 2009 and 3rd runner-up at Miss World 2009.

For the first time since 1987, Miss France was chosen by viewer voting, after the five finalists had been announced during the live broadcast. Only the judges had selected the five finalists out of the top twelve.

The 37 contestants traveled to Martinique for fashion shoots, videos and interviews, from 13 to 21 November.

Malika Ménard represented France at the Miss Universe 2010 pageant in Las Vegas on August 23, 2010. Some runners-up represented the country in other pageants, including Miss World 2010 and Miss Europe 2010.
