Noémie Happart is the new Miss Belgium or as in the bi-lingual Belgium - Miss Belgique/Miss België. Outgoing Miss Belgium Laura Beyne turned over her crown in a televised event held in Casino van Knokke-Heist. Normally a Miss Belgium competes on both Miss World and Miss Universe however, Miss World lately had been demanding a separate national pageant.
Noémie comes from Leige in the Waloon region of Belgium. In the previous editions of Miss Belgium, political chatter came alive when some French speaking candidates were unable to speak Flemish - the other language of Belgium.
Completing the Top 3 are Shérine Dandoy who is the first runner up and Melissa Vingerhoed, second runner-up.
