Brigitte Macron has been hitting the headlines recently thanks to President Donald Trump’s remarks. During a recent state visit to Paris to celebrate Bastille Day, the US president made a remark on the French first lady’s nice figure. “You’re in such good shape,” he said. His comment has sparked negative responses on the Internet, but we have to admit that despite President Trump’s sexist remark Brigitte is a classy lady with a great fashion sense.
Maybe this is due to the fashion wisdom Brigitte has learned over the years. The 64-year-old Brigitte married to France’s youngest President, Emmanuel Macron, in 2007, who was then her high-school student. In the fashion department, Brigitte favours pieces by Balmain and Alexandre Vauthier: two renowned French luxury labels. At this year’s annual Bastille Day military parade in Paris, she wore a stunning Louis Vuitton ensemble, which, to say the least, has fuelled appreciation of Brigitte’s sophisticated fashion choices.
With this in mind, we have rounded up Brigitte Macron’s most stylish outfits to date so you can see why she has been called the style icon of France.
