Style Icons: Christine Lagarde

Style Icons: Christine Lagarde
May 7, 2014 The Fold

When it comes to power dressing, few women do is as good as Christine Lagarde. Her flawless style is an inspiration for the ultimate workwear outfits.

The current managing director of the International Monetary Fund was also the first woman to become finance minister of a G8 economy, under French President Nicholas Sarkozy.

Not only has she conquered the political sphere, the fashion world is also in love with her. Favouring black, sharp tailored suits and statement dresses, she knows how to dress the part. Christine made Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List and posed for Vogue’s September issue.


One of her go-to outfits is a dark suit with a pop of colour, usually a bright scarf. Channel her with a black suit and a white blouse and add a final touch with a bold scarf.

Straight trousers, draped jacket and white keyhole top from Le Marais Capsule Collection.


She usually opts for simple, structured dresses in black, and she loves timeless investment pieces like a classic Chanel jacket. Get her look with a black dress and a boxy jacket in blush pink.
