All hail the Gallic goddesses of style. Today is Quatorze Juillet in France so we thought we’d post pictures of our favorite frenchies. There’s simply something special about these ladies. None of them look alike or have the same style but there’s a commonality with their laid-back effortlessness and their understated sex-appeal. So throw on a Breton stripe, muss up your hair and get to it!
