French women have a timeless quality that’s hard to put into words. It’s a combination of not looking like they tried and somehow appearing perfectly put-together. It’s not something that can be readily taught, but these 11 women make it look easy. Every one of the French women featured here is as chic as can be, and they’re all over age 40. Not only that, but they seem to get cooler by the decade.
The women we’re calling out include actresses, fashion editors, and former models, but there’s nothing flashy about all their style. They clearly have the fashion industry at their fingertips, but their classic aesthetics are indicative of French women in every field. Check out their cool confidence ahead, and start looking forward to getting older.
