Brigitte Macron never misses an opportunity to wear a daring look. To accompany Emmanuel Macron during an official trip on Monday, November 30, she wore some really unusual pants.
Her past as a French teacher takes over. Brigitte Macron accompanied her husband Emmanuel Macron during the inauguration of the Cité internationale de la langue française at the Château de Villers-Cotterêts. She wore an outfit that was surprising to say the least.
During this event, the first lady chose a black turtleneck sweater and a long white coat. Her classic outfit was enhanced by a slim black leather. A chic and rock outfit, paired with biker-style ankle boots and a small square handbag. It’s not not the first time that Brigitte Macron adopts leather pants. In 2021, she had already caused a sensation during the visit of American Vice-President Kamala Harris to Paris by donning a model of the same type. But it was surely in 2020, during her meeting with the late singer Michou, that the first lady was the most daring. She had set her sights on a blue faux leather pants ! Rock’n’roll attitude.
Like all first ladies, Brigitte Macron and her outfits arouse curiosity. If she earned the gratifying nickname of “first lady of chic” and Instagram accounts dedicated to her style are flourishing, the president’s wife continues to surprise with her modernity and her fashion choices since her arrival at the Élysée alongside Emmanuel Macron in May 2017. While during the presidential campaign , her clothing style casual chic and her natural relaxation may have offered points of sympathy to her husband, her appearance has, since the latter’s election, evolved a little.
How did Brigitte Macron dress when she was young?
If we can easily find photos of Brigitte Macron since she lived in the presidential palace, there are much fewer from the period when she was Mrs Trogneux, young French teacher. At the time, she was still an anonymous person cultivating a very classic, even preppy style with her hair styled in a ponytail. Blazers, suits, shirts and scarves then make up his wardrobe. Later, she wears jeans, jackets and sneakers that always make her look approachable. And during her marriage to the future president in 2007, it was in a short straight dress combined with an immaculate jacket that she said “yes” to the man with whom she was twenty-four years apart.
During the Bercy meeting in April 2017, she appeared for the first time in a more formal outfit, due to the presidential campaign. She is then dressed in a white tuxedo-style pantsuit whose jacket she wears a few days later in a gray version. It was in August 2015 that she refined the “Brigitte Style” that we know, following his meeting with Delphine Arnault, then deputy general director of Louis Vuitton. She gives him some sartorial advice for his public appearances. Between big houses and French designers such as Balmain or Louis Vuitton, her wardrobe is becoming more sophisticated. We regularly see her in a straight dress, often in a suit jacket and pants or an officer’s jacket, and always in pumps. For her husband’s two inaugurations, she each time wears a straight dress (lavender blue in 2017, white in 2022) combined with a short buttoned jacket by Louis Vuitton.
What do her favorite casual looks look like?
If we judge the street style photos, in her everyday life or during walks in Le Touquet, she particularly likes slim jeans associated with sneakers with thick soles by No Name and a suit jacket or sailor top. Sometimes, she dares to wear close-fitting leather pants or wears one of her endless straight dresses. A modern wardrobe that reflects its image of active woman, always at the forefront of trends. Brigitte Macron, on this subject, revealed to the French host Sophie Davantin his magazine S, the mag from January 2023 what her favorite look looked like: “Before the Élysée, my favorite outfit was jeans accompanied by a fitted jacket and stilettos. It was my uniform. That’s how I like to be dressed.”
What are Brigitte Macron’s favorite brands?
French first lady, Brigitte Macron supports hexagonal creation. Their favorite designers? Olivier Rousteing, at the head of Balmain when she’s not falling for an outfit Barbara Bui. Brigitte Macron also told Sophie Davant, in her magazine S, the mag that it was often Nicolas Ghesquière, artistic director of Louis Vuitton, who dressed her during her official outings: “In 2017, Louis Vuitton offered to lend me outfits when I traveled and I met Nicolas Ghesquière, its artistic director.. He knows my style, my tastes, my body shape, and he is the one who designs my outfits“.
