When Melania Trump met Brigitte Macron

 

If there was ever going to be another First Lady to out-glam Melania Trump, then Brigitte Macron was the woman for the mission.

Recently installed in the Elysee Palace, Macron has fast gained a reputation for her Louis Vuitton wardrobe, glossy Lob (that's long bob, by the way) and nonchalantly modern yet elegant way of putting a look together. Indeed, she has been hailed as having the credentials to reinvent notions of Parisian chic.

Mrs Trump's glamazon polish by now needs little introduction, but has been confirmed over the past week via a series of cinched-waist suits, ultra-feminine Dolce and Gabbana lace dresses and an unerring dedication to immaculate grooming as she has accompanied her husband on his first foreign tour.

So if the diplomatic stakes were high for the meetings of the Presidents of France and America this afternoon, then just imagine the meticulous planning which will have gone into prepping Macron and Trump for their wives summit.

In pure first impression terms, Melania Trump reigned supreme. She had chosen a custom-made beige leather suit by Belgian design house Maison Ullens for the Brussels meeting. Yes, 'leather' and 'beige', in front of all the world's cameras. Quite a feat. Paired with her carefully touselled, honey-hued locks and dazzling smile, the chances of anyone else getting a look in were about as tiny as the prospect of President Trump being able to hold his wife's hand for even one walk down a set of aeroplane steps.

There was hope yet though for Brigitte Macron who had once again been outfitted by Louis Vuitton, the French label with which she has become closely linked since she began frequently borrowing their pieces after meeting Delphine Arnault- Executive Vice President of the house- in 2014.

Opting for a chic LBD with a low slung, Vuitton-branded belt, Macron's tactic seemed to be that it was pointless trying to compete with Trump, instead taking the 'effortless' route, a word not in Melania's vocabulary. In many ways, it worked. She looked cool (especially with a monogrammed Vuitton 'Twist' bag slung over her shoulder) and not too-try-hard, qualities one could never pin against La Trump. Some observed that there was grumpy look about Macron's wife, perhaps not surprising given her own political differences with the American contingent.
