How do you say beautiful in French?


The French word for beautiful is beau for masculine nouns and belle for feminine nouns. This adjective is an irregular adjective in French. Unlike most French adjectives, which are placed after the noun, beau and belle are placed before the noun.

The French word for beautiful changes depending on whether the noun is masculine or feminine and whether it is singular or plural:

  • Masculine singular: beau
  • Feminine singular: belle
  • Masculine plural: beaux
  • Feminine singular: belles

In addition, if the noun is masculine and begins with a vowel or silent H, the adjective becomes bel.

Some examples of beautiful used in French include:

  • C'est un beau jardin. (This is a beautiful garden.)
  • Elle est une belle femme. (She is a beautiful woman.)
