I was reading a french magazine earlier today and i saw this article about how foreigners ste
reotype the parisian woman . I though it was quite interesting and funny because most of them think we all resemble Jane Birkin or Brigitte Bardot .
Stereotype # 1 : The french woman is Sexy
Some are , some aren't . It's pure logic . They think we're so sexual but i've been to american parties where teenage girls were wearing a bunny costume, laces in the most vulgar way , it made me think of a lipgloss orgy.. moving on ..
Stereotype # 2 : The french woman never shaves
Uhh .. okay perhaps we didn't during the world war II because we were busy getting killed but nowadays i assure you that our armpits are clean .
Stereotype # 3 : The french woman smokes
i agree with this , in fact i'm a smoker .
Most people think that sublime parisian women delicately smoke cigarettes and look absolutely divine . I think we manage to still look classy with killer tobacco and that's pretty amazing i must say . . You immediately think of the beautiful woman sitting in a " cafe " drinking a coffee and smoking " the " cigarette ; the Femme Fatale , so cliche but i love it .
Anyway that's my opinion and everyone has theirs of course but i do think that the myth of the french woman is pathetic and over estimated ..
