In 2010, de Fontenay created a rival pageant to Miss France called Miss Nationale which crowned Barbara Morel, Miss Provence (above). But due to a trademark dispute with another group who had already trademarked “Miss Nationale,” de Fontenay was forced to change her pageant’s title to “Miss Prestige National” in 2011.
