France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron is known for her impeccable sense of style, and her latest look is no exception.
The 65-year-old, who has been married to French President Emmanuel Macron, 41, since 2007, put her best style foot forward as she stepped out to attend the Charity Gala against Alzheimer’s Disease in Paris on Monday.
The former teacher, who met Macron when he was her teenage pupil, looked elegant in a yellow shift dress with a classic black trench coat for the occasion. She added sky-high black stilettos and a ladylike structured handbag to the classy look, and wore her blonde hair loose over her shoulders.
The shift-dress-and-classic-coat pairing is a look she’s made work for her on a number of engagements already, having worn a red dress with a matching red, knee-length coat with button details when meeting Prince Frederik of Denmark and his wife Princess Mary in August last year.
The French first lady also turns to another tried-and-trusted classic ensemble — a jacket over a matching dress – for official occasions, including when she welcomed US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania to France in November last year. For the occasion, Brigitte opted for a knee-length blue skirt and matching jacket with gold studs across each shoulder and down the side of the skirt. She coupled the stylish look with blue heels and wore her blonde hair loose over her shoulders.
On less formal occasions, the first lady also stays true to her preferred ‘uniform’ of tight-fitting trousers with sharply cut jackets, often in a military style, worn with stilettos or pointy-toed boots. That too was a look she perfected when the Trumps visited last year, where she sported a pair of black pants matched with a khaki jacket and white top.
