So I've just treated myself with Iris's book (new edition with bonus chapters).
Great and easy read, you can feel how genuine she is :)

She explains her formula to win Miss France, then Miss Universe.

I was very interested in what she writes regarding Miss Universe. That in the beginning she was staying the shy proper girl (which she later found out got her points from the chaperones) and more interesting, the fact she was treated to Pia's dressroom hours before the finale while other girls were ushered out by Esther.
Pia questionned her on her English abilities, stating that she HAD to speak English while being selected with Steve's quick interview because the organization needed to get she was able to speak basic English. Pia told her she was her winner. You can see both girls hold deep affection and it warms my heart because I love them both so much. That certainly puts a new light to the "Oh my God Pia" during the crowning!

She also said she had to keep her ground regarding who she wanted to make her hair and make-up. Or that her chaperone got it wrong one time for the departing schedule regarding an activity and she got 10 minutes to get ready and she made her hair in the elevator while she finished her make-up in a taxi while other girls of her groupe were crying thinking "this is it, I'll never make it!".

The most successful Miss Universe we've had, with Pia, in a very long time. She is always booked and busy!
I wish she would do more charity work instead of branding brands, she's becoming more of an IG influencer to be honest.

True but I think her schedule with Paradis Latin is super busy. She's signed a new contract up to late April.

I know, but she's becoming a little bit annoying with it and her boyfriend (who is not even cute but whatever) sometimes.
I'm a big fan of hers, but sometimes I'm wondering what she got out of her reign as Miss Universe, or maybe it was something to only be a bigger celebrity. I read a lot of people say that and I'm starting to wonder if it's not a little true.
I mean, not that she HAS to do charity work on a daily basis, but at least some stuff time to time to keep inspiring and helping people. But still love her a lot!

I wish she could go back to dentistry ant pull a Marine Lorphelin. Girl is in 7th (or is it 8th now???) year of Med School, has endorsements, is getting married, is modeling ... she's the role model to follow.

I do get Iris had huge opportunities but well ... at least she's living her teen years dream and has become a dancer. Not as prestigious as a dentist in my book, but well, that's my book she's the one knowing what's best for her in the end.

Yeah it's true that she posts a lot, like A LOT about her boyfriend, but oh well that's young love :)

After Miss Universe, so many doors are opened to you and I believe Iris is going through as many doors as she can. I mean, she has done DALS and Ninja Warrior among a lot of other things and I absolutely believe this is something right. In my book, no job is better than another one. She has now many job opportunities and can choose whichever she wants (like working at the Paradis Latin) and if that happens to be something that uses her celebrity, so be it! I think it is wrong to want someone to do another job when what they do makes them happy. She is already a role model in so many ways; of course, there is always room for improvement, but what she teaches me is that she's living a happy life making her own decisions.

Re — English: Even though the MUO doesn’t officially require it, it behooves contestants to ensure that they can speak the language if they expect to win, especially now that the MUO can’t afford to host the pageant in a decent manner, much less pay an interpreter for a whole year when they could easily just crown an equally strong girl who doesn’t need language assistance.
