Isak Dinesen, in her Out of Africa, describes a Masai soldier "A Masai warrior is a fine sight. Those young men have, to the utmost extent, that particular form of intelligence which we call chic;—daring, and wildly fantastical as they seem, they are still unswervingly true to their own nature, and to an immanent ideal. Their style is not an assumed manner, nor an imitation of a foreign perfection; it has grown from the inside, and is an expression of the race and its history, and their weapons and finery are as much part of their being as are a stag’s antlers" I am not sure about meaning of "intelligence" here. To me, 'chic' relates to appearance while intelligence is about mental power. How come they can be similar?
