Top politicians, their partners and high society figures attended a dinner at the Orsay Museum in Paris on Saturday as part of the Remembrance weekend program commemorating the centennial anniversary of the end of WWI.
In line with the solemn occasion, which was scheduled to continue on Sunday, during an official ceremony at the Arc de Triomphe, wives of heads of state dressed to the nines, although sticking to mostly smart and reserved looks with a bit of chic added to them.

Wife of the host, French President Emmanuel Macron, Brigitte opted for a well-balanced ensemble comprising a smart navy dress and a jacket on top of it, thereby making her outfit coordinated with her husband’s same-colour suit.

FLOTUS Melania appeared to have surpassed all expectations, picking a perfectly laconic black tuxedo coupled with a snow-white shirt, while Princess Charlene of Monaco flashed her noble statue-like figure donning a black trouser suit, her look complete with a retro-style hairdo.
A no less glamorous, although pleasantly reserved, display was made by Monika Babisova, wife of Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babis, as she appeared holding hands with her husband in an off-the-shoulder red midi gown coupled with nude heels.
Peristera Baziana, the wife of the Greek prime minister, also opted for a red palette, but its crimson shade, as she cut a flawless figure in a tight velvet midi teamed with a matching long jacket.
Congo’s First Lady Antoinette Sassou Nguesso’s chic display consisted of a white fur-trimmed cape over a navy dress with lacework, while Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan’s better half Emine looked incredibly elegant as she entered the venue in a floor-length coat dress.

Following the Saturday memorial events, roughly 70 world leaders arrived on Sunday at Paris’ Arc de Triomphe for an official ceremony marking this year’s anniversary Remembrance Day. On this day, exactly 100 years ago, the proclaimed armistice ceased the fighting during World War I, whereas the bloodshed was officially halted by the Treaty of Versailles the following year, on 11 November 1919.
