'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 presidencys 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

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”.
...and they went out of fashion in Australia 30 years ago!
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
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.
You won't want to see this picture then:
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.
Wookie needs a girdle with that fat a$$ sticking out....
She’s wearing “Spanx”
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!
