Sylvie Tellier is a French media personality and businesswoman. She was born in Nantes, France, on May 28, 1978, and raised in a poor upbringing in Les Sables-d’Olonne. Sylvie was born to parents from Normandy.
After graduating with a DEUG in law from the Faculty of Law of Petit Port in Nantes, Tellier was motivated by desire and tenacity to follow her academic goals. Continuing her studies, she graduated with a master’s in private law from Jean Moulin Lyon 3 University with a focus on taxation and commercial law.
In 1997, Sylvie Tellier’s mother pushed her to enter the Miss Vendée pageant, which marked the beginning of her adventure into the world of beauty pageants. She got involved in beauty pageants when she was 19 years old and won the title of Miss Vendée. She then participated in the Miss Pays de la Loire 1997 pageant, placing herself as the first runner-up.
On May 12, 2001, Sylvie Tellier, having earned her master’s degree in business law, entered the Miss Lyon pageant. Her participation in the Miss France 2002 pageant, which took place in Mulhouse on December 8, 2001, was made possible by her triumph in this competition. Sylvie Tellier succeeded Élodie Gossuin as Miss France 2002 thanks to her charm, grace, and intellect. At the time of her coronation, she was 23 years old, making her one of the oldest Miss France winners.
Sylvie Tellier represented France at the Miss Universe pageant held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on May 29, 2002, after winning Miss France.

On December 14, 2002, she gave up the title of Miss France to Corinne Coman.

In December 2002, she joined the staff of the show “J’y suis” on Match TV, presented by Frédéric Lopez, and worked as a columnist until June 2004.
