A statement phrased like a compliment that is actually more condescending than flattering, generally coming from a beautiful French woman.
"You speak French very well, for an American."
"I just love the way you embrace your round figure when you dance."
"You must have a fantastic metabolism. I would never be able to eat such a big dessert."
"How daring of you to wear such a lively color."
"Marie just told me my bag was 'interesting.' I'm pretty sure that was a French compliment."
