The event took place on January 14, 2023, in New Orleans, United States. Floriane became the first Miss Martinique to represent France at the Miss Universe competition. Her national costume for the event, created by designer KenVee Clothing, was inspired by the French national holiday of July 14th. Floriane’s journey in the competition concluded just before the Top 16.
