Miss France stripped of her crown

From BBC Website:

Miss France 2004 has been stripped of her title for six months after posing for Playboy.
The head of the committee that runs the contest said she was "dismayed and appalled" by the half-naked photos of Laetitia Bleger in the magazine.

She said Miss France winners were barred from engaging in "licentious" behaviour for six years after winning the title.

Miss France 1983 lost hers after posing as a pin-up for Paris Match magazine.

A statement from the Miss France committee said: "Laetitia Bleger infringed on the rule forbidding the national winner from making herself available for licentious shots - either partially or fully nude."

"We can't let this go," Miss France committee president Genevieve de Fontenay told AFP news agency before the decision was reached.

"Miss France winners have a status to uphold and they know it."

Miss Bleger was elected at the end of 2003 and was succeeded by the current holder, Cindy Fabre, last December.
I do find her being 'stripped' of her title particularly apt!!

Anyone seen the photos and care to comment?
Sounds like it wasn't only her crown she was stripped of!
