One word about her style: Louis Vuitton by Nicolas Ghesquiere...

I like her and they both seem like a lovely couple but her style is atrocious, I wouldn't even know where to start, I just know it's very 'the worst of 2004'.. I mean the baby blues, the whites, the cut of the jackets she opts for and the jeans she usually pairs them with.. shoes.. and of all of this could stand a chance actually if it wasn't for that hair, the cheap orange tan and the unforgivable makeup (soft pink lips and pastel eyeshadows).

That picture in the black dress, red heels and darker lips proves she can look good.. maybe with good advice. It's Paris.. there must be someone somewhere ready to help out..

Sorry, her style is awful! Anyone saw the droopy looking LV dress she wore to the NATO summit? I think she can start by ditching all those 60's minidresses and leather pants (who still wears leather pants in 2017???). It's clearly an attempt to appear more youthful, but there are other ways to go about it. And yes, agreed about that false tan.

I don't think I've seen a really best dressed French first lady in my lifetime. The French may be more conservative than I thought. Valerie Trierweiler came close because her choices reflected her personality more than anything else. But even Carla, who's personality I liked, ended up going the Duchess Kate route by looking matronly next to Michelle Obama. You'd think with it being France, they'd pull out all the stops. But no, we have to look to the Grimaldis for haute fashion.

Too much style from first ladies is not really appreciated in France. We have all the high fashion brands but people are not very comfortable about this. Carla had a pretty boring-non existent style outside of official events...

Rachida Dati, one of our former minister in the Sarkozy government, is very stylish but she was highly criticized for her love of fashion.

But i think Brigitte Macron needs to move on from her "Vuitton only" wardrobe. Even if Delphine Arnault did advice her, she is more of an Isabel Marant type of woman. Or even Saint Laurent.

The Grimaldi doesn't have to worry about that. They are royalty and judging by the nature of their country/population, they can totally own the fact of being Couture clients/Faces of fashion brands.

I really like her, and I like how her style is not the traditional 50s/Jackie-y first lady. I think the Vuitton collaboration works perfectly, the grey blazer and blue jacket dress are her best looks to date. I hope she embraces fashion and I'm sure the designers will jump on the opportunity to dress her. With Michelle gone and Melania being persona non grata, she can be the fashion-meets-politics star.

One thing that I noticed tho is that she's wearing some quite short hemlines. I'm wondering if that's her preference or it's an attempt to look "younger" given the big deal people made about her age and their age difference.

It's a real non-issue here. I believe that she just like short hemlines. If you look closer to it you will see that a lot of french women wears shorter hemlines.

I do like her style only because i find it very dynamic compared to our previous first ladies. She is an intellectual so in a way, she doesn't have to prove herself in the way she is dressed. Carla for example had to make a lot of effort because for the majority of the population, she was a top model and a singer.

Brigitte is very modern in a way. She is very non-fussy, effortless in her way of approaching fashion. I don't see her in a conservative Dior dress for example... More with a Chanel jacket, some black pants and a stylish blouse.
I mean, she wore Maje and Tara Jarmon in her daily life...

Love her style because it's moderne, very "air du temps" and because like lola701 " non fussy" . I don't have a problem at all with the fact that LV is clearly her sponsor haha. LV is the french brand by excellence imo. Plus regarding her profile, except Marant but not chic and high level enough, i don't see her in Maria Grazia Chiuri's collection or Karl's one.

My two problems with her is i find her quite very skinny and her haircut. To sum up, i am proud of my first lady

Yep, not even a month in and I can already see what we're in for. Cropped military style skirt suits in different hues, Twiggy dresses, and loads of skinny trousers. I will say this, she's got killer legs for a woman her age (especially in that LV dress).
