"Européennes" (English translation: "European Girls") was the French entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, performed in French by Cocktail Chic.

The song was performed third on the night (following Yugoslavia's Doris Dragović with "Željo moja" and preceding Norway's Ketil Stokkan with "Romeo)". At the close of voting, it had received 13 points, placing 17th in a field of 20.

The song is about the lives of the tititular "European girls", with the band singing about their desire to travel to Amsterdam, Copenhagen, Capri, Saint-Tropez and other locations, all the while leading a carefree lifestyle. Cocktail Chic also recorded an English version of the song, entitled "European Girls".

It was succeeded as French representative at the 1987 Contest by Christine Minier with "Les mots d'amour n'ont pas de dimanche".
