On Saturday 25 June, Amélie-les-Bains will host another type of election: the Miss Pin-Up Occitanie 2022 (intended for audiences from the 1930s to the 1960s) a contest in which all women, without exception or special, participate. Standards, can participate. Among the eight contenders for the regional mantle, we met the candidates and friends who will represent the Pyrenees-Orientales. They are Port-Vendraise Caroline Moret, 49, who works at Banyuls-sur-Mer Thalassotherapy Center and Romeufontaine Nathanaëlle Sonneck, 39, engineer and director of Odeillo Solar Furnace, who all discontinued the “timer” in the 1950s. Take it proudly.
We bet the names Betty Boop or Betty Page, popular in the 1950s and whose photos then lined up in trucker booths, don’t evoke much for those under the 1950s. Conversely, will those Marilyn Monroe and Rita Hayworth or Ava Gardner, three of Hollywood’s biggest stars, speak more? Well, the two contenders for the Miss Pin-Up Occitanie 2022 title
She is the successful combination and revival of these “gods” with slender belted waists, sensual shapes and super-shiny smiles that have made generations of males around the world dream big.
“The past is more joyful than today”Caroline Maurer – better known by the stage name of Touch Marietta (Catalan ladybug) – of Port Vendrays descent, is, in everyday life, a mother of two and a receptionist at the thalassotherapy center in Banyoles-sur-Sea. Nathanaëlle Sonneck – better known as Lady Sunny Nat – is an engineer and manager of the Odeillo Solar Furnace and lives with her husband and 11-year-old son in Font-Romeu. On Saturday 25 June, in Amélie-les-Bains, they will be the only representatives of the Pyrénées-Orientales in the Miss Pin-Up 2022 contest. We will be a total of 8 regional candidates.”Miss Marietta says, blond curls, crimson mouth, red and white dress and a matching bow in her hair. Note that this contest, which was born in 2014, does not require ” There are no selection criteria, whether it is related to age or physical fitness“Identified in turn by Nat, the red-haired, cast in a blue dress with pink flowers with a matching light pink pouch. The only thing that matters in their eyes is the image of a woman.” His passion for fashion, culture, music, the arts, and values are assumed to be in vogue from the 1920s until… 1964″. ‘Why this year’s deadline? One Notes. Because it sadly heralds the end of the pin era and the beginning of the girls who took nude pictures in Play Boy magazine”
Sorry, Miss Marietta. Laughing, conniving, visibly comfortable in their own skin as contemporary women are nostalgic for the past “Shinier than today”The two candidates conjure up the different stages of this competition that will begin at 7 p.m., either a daytime dress-up parade, a short speech for the presentation, or a free two-minute presentation, followed by a pass in evening dress. And in the end, perhaps a distinction would have brought Miss Pin-Up Occitanie and her maid of honor to the gates.”The national title to be held at the end of October this year in Wingles, in Hauts-de-France
The competition will take place at Salle Jean Trescases as part of the Nostalgie Amélie Festival. Admission: €15 (free for children under 11 years old).
