French Women Quotes
The great thing about American women is their energy and the way they love to dress. French women don't really dress; they are too conservative, as it's always a question of money. In America, women are powerful and strong, determined. If they want to be an object, they choose to be in control.
Jean Paul Gaultier
French women have been made beautiful by the French people - they're very aware of their bodies, the way they move and speak, they're very confident of their sexuality. French society's made them like that.
It's funny because I think that both France and Britain are known for their distinctive styles, and everyone says that France is so chic and elegant but I think, more than that, French women are renowned for dressing in what suits them.
I am not a great French woman. George Sand, Marguerite Duras and Simone de Beauvoir are great French women.
I'm 50% Asian actually, so yes I was born in Paris but I feel more international than French so I can't talk about French women.
French women love to shop and prepare food. They love to talk about what they have bought and made. It's a deeply natural love, but one that is erased in many other cultures. Most French women learn it from their mothers, some from their fathers. But if your parents aren't French, you can still learn it yourself.
When I was in my teens and 20s, I looked to older Italian and French women. They always seemed so incredibly attractive to me because of their confidence. And because their faces had evidence of age: lines, dark circles, and half-lidded eyes, it made that confidence so rebellious. And that was incredibly attractive to me.
When I was 20, I went to Paris and tried to meet French women. It didn't work.
I don't think it's by accident that I was first attracted to translating two French women poets.
French women don't have too many clothes - a few good pieces that last for a while and are classic and timeless.
Of course there are fat French women. There are fat people everywhere.
Tom Ford once told me that he found French women sexier than American ones. He said, 'Americans are too clean...' I took no offense.
What I like about the American woman is she usually has a lot of dynamism. In the U.S., women have a tendency to go forward, to be more exaggerated than in Europe. Many times the rough ideas come from the States, then they are refined in Europe. The American women and the French women are still the best-dressed.
You need mystery. You actually do. I think that's what foreign women, French women in particular, are good at. There's still a sense that you need to keep some of the unknown because that's where the soul resides, or something.
