The publication, while quoting from recent study show that the sexy appearance of the French women comes from spending 97 Euros on lingerie, which is only a fifth of what American women spend.
Commenting on their 'natural' blonde highlights, the publication revealed that French beauties will never disclose the amount of time they spend to find the hairdresser or the address.
It was also revealed that a modern French woman spends only 2 minutes and 30 seconds heating up dishes in the microwave, contrary to the image of a French cook slaving over a hot stove, preparing dishes whose recipes, which were handed down from generation to generation.
