Brigitte Macron doesn't do off days.

In just a few months, the French first lady's personal style has becoming something to look forward to at state dinners or official engagements and on Wednesday, she stayed true to form in a dove grey ensemble - with just the right amount of edge. The 64-year-old opted for a suede dress with zip front detail and buttoned collar by Louis Vuitton, under a masculine-style blazer and matching suede heels.

Brigitte (née Trogneux) was joined by her husband, French president Emmanuel Macron and their dog Nemo on the grounds of the Élysée Palace in Paris to celebrate the nation's talented chefs with an event and photo op. It was a whirlwind 24 hours of quick changes for the burgeoning style icon. Earlier this week, she dazzled in an LBD while hosting Lebanon's President General Michel Aoun and his wife Nadia Al Chami for a state dinner at the presidential palace.

On Monday, she emphasised the importance of sharp tailoring in a black tuxedo suit, over a white cotton top with a ruffled neckline and a signature pair of killer heels.
