Brigitte Macron, the French First Lady, appeared by her husband’s side today.
Former President Nicolas Sarkozy, and other officials, attended the event.
A solemn event, attendees stood guard during the ceremony to pay tribute to the victims of militant attacks, in Paris.
Brigitte stunned in a black suit hat was fitting for the occasion.
Staying true to her signature style Brigitte wore a black military style double breasted jacket with shoulder pads.
She added black jeans and sky high black leather boots.
A white shirt with a stiff high-neck collar finished off the look.
The jacket appeared to be the Balmain velvet blazer worth £1,550.00.Alongside Brigitte and her husband were French Minister for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition Francois de Rugy, French Interior Minister Gerard Collomb and other ministers.
French former President Nicolas Sarkozy was there, as was Paris’ first deputy mayor Emmanuel Gregoire and Nice’s mayor Christian Estrosi.
Brigitte Macron is known for her chic, workwear inspired style.
She often wears Louis Vuitton but is partial to a Balmain blazer too.
Her penchant for short hems to show of her shapely legs also influences many of her style choices.
Brigitte Macron recently wowed in a pink coat in Paris.
The immaculate coat boasted a broad collar, trim pockets and fell above the knee.
Stylish Brigitte teamed the colourful garment with more neutral tones, which really helped the pink item stand out.
Brigitte Macron broke with tradition when she took a part in a TV programme.
The show is a comedy programme which represents disability and is on TV on Thursday mornings at 11 am on France 2.
This is the first time a French First Lady has ever taken such a role.
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.”
