    Hi can anyone help me translate

    joues de filles.

    ive got a girl's cheeks, or the cheeks of a girl, but they're talking about a man so that can't be right.

    Thanks

    Hello lamp post

    Welcome to the forums

    Can you give more context please? The rest of the sentence would help.

    then your first choice was right, joue de fille means girl's cheeks, meaning the cheeks were full, healthy, good-looking, rosy, whatever you can associate with the image of a girl's cheek.
