Camille Rowe’s 10 Most French Instagram Posts

Here at French Morning, we have two spirit animals: Anderson Cooper’s boyfriend, Ben Maisani, who is also our Patron Saint of SEO, and Camille Rowe, who bridges the divide between being American and French better than any of us could hope to. Simply put, we are Anakin Skywalker—unable to dabble in the dark side of one or the other without catastrophic damage to the galaxy—and she is Luke Skywalker, bringing balance to the Force. 

In honor of her birthday today, French Morning‘s English Edition has picked the ten most French things Rowe has posted to Instagram (over at French Morning proper, you’ll find her ten most American posts):

10. Flaunting no smoking signs:

“On the silver screen” ✨?
