The first round of legislative elections took place in France on June 30, with the second round held on July 7. For the important occasion upholding French democracy, Brigitte Macron wore a stately pantsuit in a shade of cobalt blue. Over a V-neck button down shirt, she wore a fitted blazer which cinched at the waist and was fastened with a single button. Her pants were tapered and featured a crease down the center of each leg.

Adding a hint of shine to the ensemble and contrasting the material of her pantsuit, Brigitte Macron opted for a pair of blue leather pumps; they were a similar hue to her outfit but bordered closer to navy. They featured a classic pump silhouette involving a pointed toe and tall heel. A favorite style of hers, the shoes appeared to be very similar — if not the same — to a pair she wore at a state dinner in September 2023 and to vote in 2022 for the presidential primary in France.

The traditional pump is often favored among women in the political world, with Jill Biden slipping on pumps ranging from a suede option to a sparkling pair.
