Madame First Lady: Valerie Trierweiler given civil servants and bodyguards
The Daily Mail ^ | May 23, 2012 | NICK FAGGE

'First girlfriend': Valerie Trierweiler has been given an official title and her own team of civil servants and security

She declared she would not copy the high profile of her predecessor Carla Bruni.

But now Valerie Trierweiler has been given an official title and her own team of half-a-dozen civil servants and bodyguards at the Elysee Palace in Paris.

Despite not being married to the new president Francois Hollande, she will be known as the The First Lady of France.

Ms Trierweiler, 47, a twice-married mother of three, also has her own page on the French presidency’s website. An official photograph shows her expertly coiffured with make-up and red nail varnish on manicured hands.

The first couple present themselves as ‘normal’ in contrast to Miss Bruni and ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy, who were derided for their ‘bling bling’ lifestyle and love of the limelight.

It is unclear whether she will receive a salary for carrying out her as yet undefined duties.

However the 47-year-old says she intends to continue in her job as a journalist. She has worked for more than a decade for the respected glossy French magazine Paris Match and recently hosted a political news show on cable television.

Mrs Treiweiler has been scorned and appalled in equal measure in France for the coverage she received during the recent state visit to the USA

The progressive Socialist left gives us a look backward to the days of the Ancient Régime with kings and official mistresses. Twice married, twice divorced, the first girlfriend/mistress is no lady. Known as the Rottweiler for her vicious attacks and obsessive protectiveness of her "little man" Mr Normal.

France's newest first Mistress wore vertiginous heels to try and meet Michelle Obama eye-to-eye on the White House tour  

More Champagne Socialist hypocrisy, La Gauche Caviar at it's very worst!

At the G8 summit, Mrs Trierweiler strutted out next to the other First Ladies, all in their sensible mid-height heels, in YSL Tribute sandals ($1095) the shoe I would characterise as the designer-brand luxury stiletto of the 2000's, or "hooker" shoes. This follows her  earlier appearence in another pair of YSLs even more extreme, the Palais model at $970.

Pity she didn’t spend that money on a real dress, she looks like she’s wearing something one would put on after having just taken a shower...

The dress is completely ill-fitting and unbecoming.

The new President is more concerned with how she looks without the dress, than at what she wears.

Mrs. Obama looks classy and well-dressed next to this “lady”.

Whether it’s income or height, socialist are obssessed with equality.

Have to admit Michelle looks really good in this photo. AND, she isn’t wearing her *teal* shoes, either! Very nice monochromatic suit with matching heels? She’s GOT to have a new stylist, or is listening to SOMEONE now!
(Note: She should remember to tuck her skirt when she sits down so the slit doesn’t get pressed *up* in the back though).

Oh... and she must have listened regarding the proper way to stand (I remember posting about that YEARS ago!).

Now, someone needs to show Mrs. Trierweiler how to stand properly... Maybe some normal shoes would help so she doesn’t have to stand with her feet and shoulders equal? LOL

"Pity she didn’t spend that money on a real dress, she looks like she’s wearing something one would put on after having just taken a shower..."

You're right! It looks like a short cotton robe that you'd wear during the summer. I bet there's prettier ones hanging in Walmart.

The shoes and the dress look frumpy and that’s all there is to it. Have to admit Michelle looks best I’ve seen her in that suit.

Being able to appreciate the fact that she looks good (FINALLY - and at least in this photo, and this suit/shoe combo) doesn’t mean anyone *LOVES* her by any means... I’m wondering which stylist she’s using now, because it can’t be the one she used to use, and she didn’t do it herself!

She needs spanx or a girdle or something - OR don’t take off the jacket! Still a mighty sight better than some of her other *outfits* I’ve seen over the years. At least the seam on the side is from the dress and it isn’t her underwear!

"(Note: She should remember to tuck her skirt when she sits down so the slit doesn’t get pressed *up* in the back though)."

A "wind" blew the slits open. The Rottweiler standing next to her was almost blown over by it. Thus her unladylike stance is just her keeping her balance.

She's a pig no girdle or stockings. That should be mandatory for a First Lady.

Any woman with half a pineal gland would automatically wear a girdle and stockings if she looked like that in a dress.....

Stockings with open toe shoes - tacky.

One reason you don’t see me around her much anymore. It’s become the Obama fan club lately.
