Cute in French : Mignon

The first way to say cute in French, and the most standard way is mignon.

In most case you would use cute in English, you can use mignon in French.

Tu es mignon : You are cute

Mignon is actually the masculine form of the noun. It’s the one you are going to use with masculine gender words – like bébé for example.

Le bébé est mignon. : The baby is cute.

No matter the sex of the baby, if it’s a boy or a girl – the noun bébé is masculine.

And so you’ll use the masculine version of the adjective mignon.

We’ll see the feminine version in a minute.

But, before that, you’re also going to use the masculine version for situations.

C’était mignon. : It was cute.

Any sentence you’ll start with c’est or c’était.

And, finally, if you want to describe a group – as long as there is at least one male or one masculine gender word in the group – you’ll use the masculine mignon.

In the plural – mignonS.

Vous êtes mignons. : You (plural) are cute.

Ma soeur et mon frère sont mignons. : My sister and my brother are cute.

Now, you’re going to need the feminine version of mignon too.

Mignonne : cute (feminine)

You’re going to use it to describe women or girls.

Tu es mignonne : You are cute (here you are definitely addressing a woman or a girl)

But you’re also going to use the feminine version of cute with nouns that are of the feminine grammatical gender.

For example: fille (daughter), fourchette (fork), jambe (leg), tasse (cup),…

Sa petite fille est mignonne. : Her little daughter is cute.

J’ai acheté une tasse super mignonne. : I bought a super cute cup.

Another situation where you’d use the feminine version is for groups composed of only females or grammatically feminine words.
