A beauty queen was still crowned Miss Belgium 2020 after she fell onstage and lost her strapless bra during the pageant over the weekend.
Celine Van Ouytsel, 23, from Herentals, conquered the hearts of fans when she picked herself up after an embarrassing fall during the live beauty pageant, and gracefully walked off, leaving her strapless bra – which she had lost during the awkward stumble – on the floor behind her.
The law graduate, who was wearing a white and blue glittery gown, dusted herself quickly after tripping on the last set of stairs leading to the stage after her introduction.
She gave the crowd a cheerful smile throughout the remainder of her time onstage, and still went on to win the contest, proving you can always recover from a topple.
In the clip, poor Celine can be seen tripping on a step and landing on her knees, but springs back up in an instant, composing herself.
As she walks off, arms opened and a defiant smile on her face, eagle-eyed fans noticed that Celine’s white padded bra had slipped from her bust to the floor during the fall.
After winning the show and later told a VTM News reporter covering the pageant: ‘I just had to get up again, as you so often do in life.’
Celine’s fans praised her resilience on social media after the pageant aired over the weekend.
