Brigitte Macron Pairs Her Pastel Pink Dress With Silver-Toed Pumps for Bastille Day Festivities

Brigitte Macron once again highlighted her understated, elegant style as she attended the annual Bastille Day military ceremony today at the Place de la Concorde in Paris.

The French first lady looked stylish in a pale pink double-breasted coat, worn over a form-fitting dress in the same pastel shade. Both pieces were from Louis Vuitton, Macron’s go-to label.

On her feet, the former schoolteacher wore spiky stilettos, selecting a blush-colored pair with a silver cap toe. The sky-high heels appeared to add about 5 inches of height to Macron’s 5-foot-6 frame. Complementing the metallic cap toe of her heels, as well as the button detailing on her jacket, was Macron’s laser-cut silver clutch. The clutch appeared to be a sold-out style from Azzedine Alaïa.

On July 13, in preparation of Bastille Day today, President Macron spoke to the French Military Forces at the Hotel de Brienne in Paris. To listen to her husband speak, Brigitte opted for a tailored royal blue sheath dress with embellished chain and zipper accents at the shoulders. The ex-teacher accessorized with a silver bracelet and a matching watch, completing her look with a clutch as well as block-heeled black pumps with a pointed toe and shiny upper.

When it comes to her typical fashion aesthetic, she tends to embrace a classic style ethos, opting for elegant, tailored pieces that have a very French feel (effortlessly chic with a little je ne sais quoi).  Macron’s wardrobe staples include coat and dress combos similar to today’s, along with skinny jeans and cigarette pants. A major fan of Louis Vuitton, Macron often can be found in graphic block heels from the label, as well as its classic pointed-toe Eyeline pumps.  She has also occasionally opted for bolder footwear styles, such as PVC-trimmed pumps and all-black cage heels.
