Vintage Bastille Day Photos

START

The French do everything just a little chicer and a little classier than the rest of us—take French girl beauty or effortlessly elegant Parisian style. So it makes sense that Bastille Day, France’s National Day, has always been celebrated with fashion and flair. The holiday marks the anniversary of two different events: the Storming of the Bastille in 1789, a major turning point in the French Revolution, and the Fête de la Fédération, which celebrated the unity of the French people the following year. Ahead, we take a look at Bastille Days of the past and old-school photos of Champs Élysée, the avenue in Paris where the celebration takes place. Grab your berets and baguettes and scroll ahead for definitive proof that the French have always done it best.
