France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron Gets Chic in Pussybow Dress & Chocolate Pumps for NATO Dinner in Spain

Brigitte Macron recently traveled to Spain with her husband, French president Emmanuel Macron, for the two-day NATO Summit in Madrid. For an informal NATO dinner bustling with world leaders on June 29, the 69-year-old French first lady channeled classic business style, turning to a quintessential French dress silhouette for the occasion.

For the event, Brigitte wore a light blue pussybow dress with a breezy below-the-knee hem. The crepe dress featured a classic conservative silhouette and slightly voluminous sleeves, which were cuffed at the wrists.

Brigitte is famed for her minimalist wardrobe, which embodies the textbook French-chic aesthetic. The French first lady often favors pieces by designer brands like Louis Vuitton, Alaïa, Alexandre Vauthier and Dior. For high-profile occasions, Macron is often seen in minimal dresses, pantsuits and gowns, as is the case with her NATO attire. When off-duty, she favors skinny jeans and tailored trousers paired with neutral-toned pieces. No matter the occasion, however, Macron is almost always seen in high-heeled footwear.
