I don't feel like the 'first,' or the last, or a lady. I am Brigitte Macron!
I think that the 21st century will be feminine, that it's women who will, perhaps, find a way out for this world.
I'm really into fashion, and there's this fascination the world over around this idea of the French woman.
I don't feel like a first lady.
There are times in your life where you need to make vital choices.
I have a boundless passion for Flaubert. It's unthinkable to me that someone might not have read 'Madame Bovary.' He writes with a scalpel. Everything has meaning. My students were not allowed not to like him!
I would never leave the house before choosing an outfit and doing my hair - the results may vary, but I cannot do otherwise.
'Babylone, Babylone' is remarkable. Emmanuel is fascinated by Mexico. He knows the country without having been there... I am amazed by his intellectual capacities. He is extraordinary. I am talking about the man, not about my husband.
I wasn't a very well-behaved girl. I was often in detention for impertinence.
I have always put a lot of effort into the way I present myself; just ask my children or students!
I have never been attracted by younger men.
I'm a creature of the eighteenth century at heart: The Enlightenment and the search for happiness suit me.
I'm still the wife of Emmanuel Macron, not of the president.
I wore miniskirts when I was younger. We used to hide them in our bags before going out.
I go out every day in Paris.
I have the impression that every word is a word too many. I'm constantly holding myself back.
I have no idea what to wear; Nicolas Ghesquiere has made me a wardrobe for every circumstance.
I'm lucky to have met Nicolas Ghesquiere, the creative director of Vuitton. He understands me and knows me, and I admire his sensibility and talent. Karl Lagerfeld is another huge designer and artist for whom I feel affection and admiration.
It is very clear in my mind that the French people elected Emmanuel, and they haven't elected me, although they knew, of course, that we were a couple.
