Here's a dorky question: What does the "vif" in Rouge Vif stand for/mean?
^great question. I wan to know too. Also wondering about pronunciation.
Me too on the pronunciation! Glad I am not alone.
Vif = bright/loud/lively in french
Someone correct me if I'm wrong!
I just found a French-English translation site and it gave the definitions you provided, Glimmer. It also said that rose vif=shocking pink. So maybe rouge vif=shocking red.
Still wondering about the pronunciation. Is it veef? Or vee with a silent f?
The pronounaciation is veef without a silent f and I think shocking red is a good translation.
Thanks, Tanja. Now I won't be embarrassed if someone asks me about the color of my rouge vif, or shocking red, bag!
That's good to know!
oh goodie. Thanks for the clarification!!!!
rouge VEEEEEEEF! heheheheh
