Miss France keeps title but barred from Miss World following racy photos

Miss France keeps title but barred from Miss World following racy photos

Miss France 2008 was barred from upcoming international beauty pageants, organizers said Friday, after a gossip magazine published racy photos of her last week.
Valerie Begue, 22, will not compete in the Miss World or Miss Universe beauty pageants, Miss France organizers said.
But Begue will not be stripped of the Miss France title she won Dec. 8. Begue described the outcome as "a compromise which satisfies all parties."
The pageant's criteria stipulate that candidates must "never have posed or exhibited (themselves) in dubious outfits or poses, partially or totally nude."
The pictures in Entrevue magazine included one of a bikini-clad Begue lying on a cross in a swimming pool and another of her licking what looked like yoghurt or evaporated milk.
Begue is a native of France's Indian Ocean island of Reunion. She is to be replaced in international pageants by the first runner-up, Vahinerii Requillart, Miss New Caledonia.
