France has received many accolades across the years, being lauded as a mecca of cuisine, culture, and history. Perhaps one of the most defining aspects of this magnificent European country, however, is the beauty of the women who call it home. While defining the most beautiful women in France is a true mission impossible, the following list details some of the most extravagant beauties around, in no particular order.
1. Laetitia Casta
Fans of the fashion world will instantly recognize Laetitia Casta, one of the premier French supermodels. Hailing from Pont-Audemer, in the northern portion of France, Casta is rumored to have been discovered by a model while vacationing with her family as a young teenager. Since that time, she has become one of the most popular models in the country, working for iconic brands such as Dior and Chanel, and having been featured on the cover of magazines like Vogue and ELLE. She has also made appearances in several films, and served as a model for Marianne, the national emblem of France.
2. Noémie Lenoir
Lenoir is another model who has made a splash in the fashion world. Since beginning her career at the tender age of 16, Noémie Lenoir has worked as the face of several major brands across the globe. From L’Oréal to Victoria’s Secret, her work can be found in a variety of different domains. In addition to her modeling career, she has begun working in films, making appearances in movies such as Rush Hour 3 and in a recent music video for Usher.
3. Catherine Deneuve
Catherine Deneuve is perhaps the most famous face in the whole country of France, and with good reason. The popular film star who has been dubbed the “queen of the cinema,” Deneuve has enjoyed a long and successful career. She has won several César Awards, and was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress for her role in the film Indochine. Nevertheless, her most enduring work is likely that seen in Belle de Jour, one of the most iconic French films of all time.
4. Mélissa Theuriau
Unlike the other women on this list, Mélissa Theuriau is not a film star or a popular model. Instead, Theuriau is a news anchor, presently working for the French channel M6. Regardless, this has not stopped her from becoming an internationally known beauty, with many magazines and other publications declaring her one of the sexiest TV anchors in all of history. Furthermore, she has become somewhat of an Internet phenomenon, with several video compilations of the anchorwoman receiving millions and millions of views on popular sites like YouTube.
5. Clara Morgane
Clara Morgane is a French celebrity who has transcended the traditional boundaries of fame, by crossing over from the pornographic industry into mainstream entertainment. After her pornographic success, the beauty from Marseille first began working as an anchorwoman on Canal +, a cable television channel. She is also a singer, lingerie designer, and columnist for several French magazines.
