The New French First Lady Wore A Powder Blue Suit to Inauguration

Brigitte Trogneux's Inauguration looked reminded folks a lot of the Ralph Lauren ensemble Melania Trump wore to the U.S. Presidential Inauguration.

In case you need a break from the state of affairs stateside, France just welcomed a fashionable new First Lady, Brigitte Trogneux. From the looks of it, she may be taking some style cues from an unexpected source: her U.S. counterpart, Melania Trump.
At Emmanuel Macron’s inauguration on Sunday, the new First Lady of France, sporting a soft, windswept updo, showed up on the world’s stage in a sky blue wool-crepe dress and matching jacket designed by Louis Vuitton, as reported by WWD.
Sound familiar? The look was eerily similar to the Jackie Kennedy-esque ensemble designed by Ralph Lauren that Melania Trump wore to the inauguration here at home.

[post_ads]Let’s break the similarities down. First, there’s the sky blue hue. With two First Ladies sporting the springy color at history-making moments, we’d venture to say this powdery shade of blue may be the new political power color. Then there’s the cut.

Besides the fact that both looks are matching dress/jacket combos, Trogneux’s military-inspired jacket takes a page from the powerfully chic Norisol Ferreri coat Melania wore to kick off the inaugural ceremonies at Arlington Cemetery earlier this year. And finally, there’s the choice of designer. Ralph Lauren and Louis Vuitton have both historically helped to define their nations’ sartorial moods.

The conversation between politics and fashion is certainly not a new one. Fashion choices have been elevated to Presidential heights thanks to First Ladies like Jackie Kennedy, who is clearly still inspiring wardrobes around the world, and Michelle Obama, who used style to make statements about globalization and diplomacy during the Obama administration.
So, with style doing so much talking on the political stage, what are Trogneux and her powder blue political power suit saying? Though she and Trump could easily be thought of as style twins, the administrations they represent couldn’t be more different. Perhaps her military-inspired ensemble is a deliberate sign — a sartorial “I see you, girl.” Or maybe it’s a statement about finding common ground in an increasingly tenuous political arena.

Whatever the statement, we’re hoping for some more powder blue political power moments from the First Ladies of the world.
