Miss France 2016, which will be decided Saturday night in Lille with a televised final on TF1, has a very different judging line-up, with fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier chairing the panel this year.
   Gaultier takes over from Patrick Bruel, who had replaced QuĂ©becois singer Garou last year. Garou had stepped in to the chair when long-time chair Alain Delon quit the position after his remarks supporting the National Front political party in France.
   Gaultier had revealed that he had a favourite segment from the night—one where contestants came out in folkloric costumes—and may have an early favourite contestant already.
   He gave no clues to her identity, but says, ‘Miss France has an ambassadorial role. She must be a diplomat. It is very important that is able to express her ideas well, and that she has ideas. And image must count, too.’
   He told Non Stop People, meanwhile, ‘I always look for characters who can inspire me. I love to highlight different beauties.’
   Gaultier is joined on the jury by actress Laetitia Milot, The Voice: la plus belle voix winner Kendji Girac, Miss France 2009 ChloĂ© Mortaud, singer Patrick Fiori, singer–songwriter Anggun, and rugby union player FrĂ©dĂ©ric Michalak.
   Gaultier said that he has kept the terrorist attacks of November 13 in mind, and that the competition is timely as something that the French people know and can enjoy.
