Laura Perucchietti, first runner-up of Miss Midi-Pyrénées

“We believed in it so much, Laura was perfect all night long, she couldn’t have done better… So many emotions!” The day after the election of Miss Midi-Pyrénées, Amandine Alcouffe, president of the Aveyron committee, was still completely upset by the evening spent Saturday at the Château de la Garrigue in Villemur-sur-Tarn in Haute-Garonne.

It is in this sumptuous setting that her protégé, Laura Perucchietti, elected Miss Aveyron at the beginning of June, finished first runner-up in the competition. A performance “exceptional” for a representative from Aveyron, as recalled by Amandine Alcouffe, herself second runner-up in this competition in 2016. Aged 23 and a student in Toulouse, the Saint-Affricaine had indicated before the competition that she wanted “give the best” and make her shine “simplicity”.

A sacred Tarnaise

This apparently won over the public and the jury, although it was not enough to represent the region to Miss France, the Grail. This role will go to the winner of Saturday evening: Hannah Friconnet, a Tarnaise from Labruguière. Note that the first runner-up of Miss Aveyron, the Ruthénoise Alizée Roques, was also part of the 14 candidates for the title of Miss Midi-Pyrénées on Saturday evening.
