For her first official outing in months, the French First Lady donned a vibrant double breasted blazer with matching trousers, and a crisp white blouse with a pussybow detail at the collar. 

She paired the trouser suit with discreet jewellery and black stiletto heels. 

Meanwhile she could be seen carrying a black, bedazzled black face mask.  

Sporting a healthy tan, the First Lady had put on a natural makeup, with just a dash of bronzer complimenting her glow and some mascara and eye-shadow circling her blue gaze.

The Francois Pinault collection, which belongs to the French billionaire who owns Gucci and St Laurent, has invested the empty rooms of the Bourse de Commerce which used to be France’s busiest stock exchange during the 19th and 20th century.

Refurbished with the help of Japanese architect Tadao Ando, the insides of the grand historic building have been stripped down to a minimalist art gallery in order to display the work of arts from the collection, acquired by the Pinault family. 

The billionaire himself and his wife Maryvonne Pinault were in attendance, walking Brigitte through the exhibition, which will open to the public on Saturday May 22. 

Pinault bought the building from Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo for 15 million euros in order to set up his collection.
