We may be overstating the obvious, but it’s no secret that we’re completely head-over-heels for all things French – chouquettes, Eau Thermale Avène, Provence rosé, lingerie, the ability to “throw on a sweater that drapes off your shoulder just so while expertly mastering that je ne sais quoi,” just to quickly rattle off a few favorites. We have zero qualms about sporting Breton stripes (or a red lip, for that matter) and drinking champagne any day of the week, but today happens to be Bastille Day, so we feel more than entitled to show our stripes. In addition to the far-from-exhaustive list above, we count ourselves super fans of and eternal devotees to France’s legion of beautiful, iconic women. Below, our lingerie homage to a few of the greats. Vive la France!
