* InnocentBlueEyes: Vanessa. While the art style means most of the female characters have big eyes Vanessa (and her identical but younger) niece have particularly prominent baby blues to empashise their naiveté.

** The 24th volume has a longer joke where Kim brings a nervous Vanessa along to a Franchise/StarWars convention. Kim is dressed in full Jedi robes and carries a lightsaber but poor Vanessa lacks any sort of costume and is nearly thrown out. Kim tells the other fans that the "the force is strong in her [Vanessa's] family" and 'proves' it by turning off the lights and having Vanessa shine a blue flashlight in her left ear... the beam of which [[WhoEvenNeedsABrain naturally]] shines out Vanessa's right ear, looking like a lightsaber passing harmlessly through her (ala Obi-Wan in Episode IV). The other fans love it and literally fall down in worship of Vanessa, much to her {{Adorkable}} surprise and delight.

* HairAntennae: Vanessa's distinctive look. It took a few volumes to evolve; in earliest strips unless named on panel the only way to tell her apart from the generic one-shot blondes is via her supporting cast.

* AmusingInjuries: At least half the humour comes from Vanessa (or another blonde in the one shot strips) suffering these. Less frequently innocent bystanders are caught up in this.



* BrainlessBeauty: Vanessa herself and most of the other blondes (though there are exceptions). Actually it seems to be ''[[WhoEvenNeedsABrain literally]]'' [[WhoEvenNeedsABrain true of Vanessa]] -- in one album a baffled doctor shows her an X-ray of her empty cranium and explains he found nothing at all in her head. Vanessa is [[ComicallyMissingThePoint visibly delighted at the all clear]].

to:

* BlackComedy: The series uses fairly lighthearted art and most of the gags usually result in embarrassment or AmusingInjuries but so strips get quite dark with implied (or even explicit) death.

"Les Blondes" is a [[FrancoBelgianComics French comic]] written and drawn by Gaby and Dzack. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin As the name implies]] it is about {{Dumb Blonde}}s.

The humour involves a lot of slapstick and wordplay based on translating blonde jokes to a visual medium. Given most of the cast are drawn as [[MsFanservice gorgeous]] suprisingly few of the jokes are based around sex, even when it comes to innuendo. While there are lots of one shot blondes characters who appear only for a single page gag the lead (and series mascot) is Vanessa, recognisable by her distinctive hairstyle. She's very sweet natured and likable and very pretty but incredibly foolish and [[CloudCuckooLander permanently at odds with reality]]. Other important characters include Vanessa's niece (exactly the same as her aunt but a pre-teen), fellow DumbBlonde Cindy and her good (and thankfully much smarter) non-blonde friends Kim, Chloe, Michelle and Anne.
