What Will Brigitte Macron Wear For US Visit?

Speculation in France about what the French first lady will wear for the US Visit

Brigitte Macron and her husband French president Emmanuel Macron arrive in Washington DC tomorrow 23 April for a 3-day official state visit to the United States.

In France there is much speculation as to what the French Première dame in her capacity as ambassadrice de la couture française, ambassadress for French couture, will wear at the various official events.

Le Parisien reports that Brigitte Macron has again chosen her favorite designer Nicolas Ghesquière, the artistic director of Louis Vuitton, to create at least one of the outfits that she will wear during the trip.

The newspaper also reports that another outfit will be "bleu nuit très américain.” Would this be dark blue as in the American flag — or dark blue in a very American style? Having seen the photos of the dark blue dress with matching trench coat shown in photos in The Express (UK), I wonder if this might not be the same or a similar outfit. Or the one with the wide belt we have seen in the French media?

Le Parisien also reports that Brigitte Macron has chosen a white outfit to wear on the US visit. In my analysis of Brigitte Macron’s personal style in the new Chic & Slim Toujours 2, I point out the similarity between the white dress that Brigitte Macron wore in greeting the American president and his wife to Paris in the summer of 2017 and the white dress she wore ten years earlier in her marriage to Emmanuel Macron. (Chic French women stay true to their personal style. of course.) Will there be another white above-the-knee A-line dress for this second appearance with the Trumps?

Brigitte Macron’s staff are not giving specifics on the clothes she has chosen for the trip. They will only say that the French first lady has chosen outfits that will be appropriate for the setting and for the particular events.

Brigitte Macron's Personal Style Evolution

Brigitte Macron’s personal style has evolved during her almost-one year as France’s Première dame. Her outfits appear more classic and more formal than during the campaign. The above-the-knee hemlines have inched down closer to the knee. She is wearing her hair a little longer than previously in a more natural style. Though the 65-year-old first lady still often wears her hair styled in a chignon for formal occasions.

The media, no doubt, will provide us with many opportunities to observe Brigitte Macron’s US visit wardrobe during the 23 -25 April US visit. It will be a wonderful opportunity to observe chic French certain age style. And to see in action the Brigitte Chic analysis that I give you in Chic & Slim Toujours 2: More Aging Beautifully Like Those Chic French Women.
