Raymonde Allain (22 June 1912 – 27 July 2008) was a French model and actress.[1] She was Miss France in 1928.[2] Her participation in the Miss Universe contest drew international media attention,[3] and her controversial loss to American Ella Van Hueson prompted critical dispute over what counted as "real beauty".[4] Allain later wrote an autobiography titled Histoire vraie d'un prix de beauté.
