Most of the things I love most about France seem to start with a "C". Chanel, croissants, Christian Dior, cabernet, Christian Louboutin, Champs Elysee, café au lait, crêpes, and crème brûlée.
I also love that French women, my brown sisters in particular, are très chic. For Bastille Day, beautiful French black models paired with exquisite French cosmetics are the perfect way to celebrate chic and classic style.
Starting with the chanteuse Josephine Baker, black women in France, have been/are uniquely charismatic.

By 1927 Josephine Baker earned more than any entertainer in Europe. The French government honored her with a 21-gun salute, making Josephine Baker the first American woman buried in France with military honors.
