First Lady Brigitte Macron looked glamorous as she gathered for the G20 summit today in Japan. The 66-year-old – who has travelled to the country with her husband, French president Emmanuel Macron, 41 – led the style, as she wore a navy blue and light blue panel dress. She was spotted with the partners of the leaders involved in the summit, which is made up of the 19 fastest-growing economies and the European Union. Collectively, the grouping represents more than 80 percent of the world’s economic output and two-thirds of its people. This is the first time Japan has hosted a G20 summit.
The mum-of-three – to Sebastien, Laurence and Tiphane – was all smiles as she talked with children during the ‘Orem a precious resource for our lives’ conference.
She was joined by the Japanese Prime Minister’s wife Akie Abe and the South Korean President’s wife Moon Jung-sook.
Brigitte’s structured dress was the perfect choice for the cool weather in Japan, and the side panels showed off Brigitte’s figure.
She opted for minimal make up, going for a nude lip and light eyeshadow and wore her blonde bob in her trademark style – down with a middle parting.
The First Lady is often spotted looking glamorous on official outings.
The day before, she was seen wearing a similar dress at the G20 summit.
Brigitte – who has been married to Emmanuel Macron for 12 years, following her divorce from her first husband Andre-louis Auziere – showed off her legs in a powder-blue number, which cut just above her knees.
The dress had a high neck and and a thin strip of material around the waist, which had a cream buckle.
Two silver zips could be seen down the left and right side of the dress and they stopped just before the hem of the dress.
She kept her legs bare and complemented the dress with a pair of cream high court heels.
Recently, she met with US First Lady Melania Trump to celebrate the 75th D-Day anniversary in France.
Contrasting with Melania – who opted for head-to-toe black – Brigitte looked stunning in a knee length cream dress and matching coat.
She later revealed that she and Melania “laughed a lot” during their meeting.
Brigitte Macron: Five facts about the French President’s wife
Brigitte Trogneux, as she was born, is the youngest of six children and grew up in Amiens, France.
Her parents were owners of Chocolaterie Trogneux, which had been run by five generations of the family and is now run by Brigitte’s nephew.
Before her marriage to the current French President, Brigitte was married to a banker, André-Louis Auzière.
The couple wed in June 1974 and had three children before finally divorcing in January 2006. She married Emmanuel in 2007.
Brigitte is famed for being her husband’s secondary school teacher, but she has had a varied working life.
In 1982 she was a press secretary at the Nord-Pas-de-Calais Chamber of Commerce, moving in to teaching two years later.
First Lady attempt
In 2017, Emmanuel made an attempt to give his wife an official paid role in French administration, as First Lady.
This was dashed, however, after an online petition against the move gained 300,000 signatures. Her role has stayed unofficial, although as with previous President’s wives, she does have a small team of staff.
The French luxury fashion house began a relationship with Brigitte in 2015, loaning her outfits for public appearances.
Speaking to business news magazine Challenges, her team confirmed: “Everything has been noted in a register and the loan outs have been systematically returned. And she only wears their outfits for public appearances.”
