Brigitte Macron is rock chick in SEXY leather outfit to meet Chinese vice-foreign minister
Brigitte Macron, 64, wife to French President Emmanuel Macron, 39, greeted the infant bear before revealing his name to be Yuan Meng.
In Chinese, the name means “making a dream come true”.
The ceremony took place at Beauval zoo in the south of Paris, and the four-month-old male cub was seen making a growling sound and jumping towards Brigitte as she put her hand over the glass to pet him.
It is currently seven degrees celsius in the French capital city, so the former school teacher Brigitte wrapped up warm for the occasion.
She donned an almost full leather outfit – a pair of tight black leather trousers, dark red leather ankle boots and black leather gloves.
Her burgundy coat also featured a thick black leather collar and leather trim around the pockets.
Brigitte layered up with a plain white tee, a black waistcoat and an aztec print scarf.
She tied her hair up for the occasion in a messy chignon and wore plenty of bronzer not to look washed out in the cold weather.
Brigitte met with the French Junior Minister for Foreign Affairs Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne at the event, as well as the Chinese vice-foreign minister Zhang Yesui and former French Prime Minister Jean-Pierre Raffarin.
The baby panda’s mother, Huan Huan, was artificially inseminated from partner Yuan Zi this spring.
Both are at the zoo on a 10-year-loan from China, and their offspring officially belong to the Chinese government.
The cub will be sent to a Chinese panda reserve when it is weaned.
Brigitte’s last outing was at Delafontaine Hospital in Saint-Denis last Friday when she joined her husband Emmanuel Macron.
She wore a pair of drainpipe black jeans, which highlighted her slim legs.
Her top half was more covered up, with Brigitte choosing a loose white shirt and oversized Chanel blazer.
The blazer feared a bold red, blue and yellow check print and was finished with gold buttons.
