What is it about French women? Whether it’s the flawless skin, chic wardrobe and effortlessly tousled hair of screen icons like Brigitte Bardot and Marion Cotillard, or their ability to eat pretty much anything they want and remain sylphlike, the French have something everyone seems to covet.
French women enjoy a glass of red wine every day without thinking of it as an indulgence. Rather, it’s part of their culture, something they’d never think twice about doing (or not doing).
CHERCHEZ LA FEMME
Literally meaning “look for the woman,” cherchez la femme is used in English to imply that if a man is seen acting out of character, then a woman will likely be the cause of it—find her, and the issue will be resolved. Although the origins of the phrase are a mystery, it’s often credited to the French author Alexandre Dumas, whose crime drama Les Mohicans de Paris (1854) contains its first written record:
There is a woman in all cases; as soon as a report is brought to me I say, ‘Cherchez la femme!’
