Keep in mind that a lot of armours and weapons were exported, so all styles can be seen in different places in Europe.

We have a few articles on our Features page that cover 16th century armour.

You might be interested in the armour of Charles V:

There is also an article that covers later in the century:

Thats right, there is a lot of great stuff here, if you wish images, you can google Woodcuts, or see them in this page.

Armour known to be French made out of that time period is pretty rare. A harness at England's Royal Armouries made out of two armours (happens all the time; they look pretty good together, though) traditionally thought to be the Bayard's might be useful.
