Here are 4 things (other than their chic cocktails) we love about the French:

1. The French revolutionized style when the fashion world was first growing into the industry that it is today. Their timeless, tailored clothing is always flattering.

2. When we think gourmet cuisine, the French come to mind tout de suite! And attempting to pronounce entrees on a French menu with an accent is even more enjoyable!

3. The French have been drinking wine with dinner since Roman times and are the world's largest producers of the delectable drink.

4. French females' positive perspective of femininity and their ability to draw others' focus to what is beautiful and sexy about them.
