Brigitte Macron brought her signature style as she jetted to New York City for the United Nations General Assembly.

The French first lady (64) was dressed for the autumnal chill in a pair of black skinny jeans, zip up boots, white cotton top and tailored black coat with embellished collar. She landed in the Big Apple on Monday and was pictured exploring the city in her off-duty uniform, strolling along the Hudson River and visiting Ground Zero.

Macron was pictured today walking towards the UN HQ in a creme dress with leather detail, but more interestingly, tied her hair up, brushing her fringe away from her face. The former teacher, who married French president Emmanuel Macron in 2007, is among the many notable international guests representing at the conference - US first daughter Ivanka Trump attended on Tuesday, speaking at the "A Call to Action to End Forced Labour, Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking" event.

She was joined by her brother Eric and his wife Lara, who is expecting their first child.

Meanwhile, Brigitte is in town in her capacity as France's official first lady.

"We'll post my meetings and my commitments on the presidency website, so that the French people know exactly what I'm doing," she told French Elle in August.

"What's important is that it is clear. I don’t feel like a First Lady. That’s the translation of an American expression, and I don’t like anything about it. I don’t feel like the ‘first’, or the last, or a lady. I am Brigitte Macron!"
