Nathalie Lesage – The reigning beauty

Written by 
When you think of a beauty pageant, what is the first thing that comes to mind? The answer would be expectedly different from person to person.
In today’s age, the definition of beauty is hard to pin down because conventions have changed and the rule to what is “acceptable” as beautiful has evolved with it. In taking these thoughts forward, News on Sunday is delighted to catch up with recently crowned Miss World Mauritius 2012-2013, Nathalie Lesage. This winsome Miss was the favourite contestant of many. 

She made Mauritius sit up and take notice of her charm and beauty and heralds a new dawn of beauty pageants in our country.  As we settle down for a freewheeling and candid chat, we cannot but feel that this heavenly beauty will sure make waves in due time. From happiness to dreams, Nathalie shares it all.

What has been the biggest highlight of the contest for you?
The bond I created with the other girls.

How do you deal with the fame that comes with the crown? Any long-lost friends showed up after you won?

I didn’t know I am famous! Lots of people have come out of the woodwork.

Why did you join the pageant? What do you hope to achieve?
I was in the quest of adventure.

Now that you have won the pageant, what is next for you?
I will be heading for the Miss World contest in Bali in September 2013. I am going to do my best during this year, and prepare myself for this BIG pageant. I will be flying to Rwanda in 2 weeks, I am going to work for the cause of a charity.

There has never been a Mauritian semifinalist at Miss Universe. What, according to you, is lacking?
I shall let you know when I find the answer. But I am sure we have all the potential to reach the semifinals at Miss Universe soon!

Were you disappointed to come second in line?
No, not at all. I was just hoping to be in the top 6.

How is the crown making you grow as a person?
Now I always have to think about my actions first.

What would you say to people who think beauty contests are lame and demeaning?
Ask them to see with their eyes the entire process and what we have to go through for a draining month.

The guys will want to know the last question. Are you single?
No and I am very much in love.
