Women We Love: Christine Lagarde

She may look a bit like Princess Diana might have at her age, but Christine Lagarde is her own very French chic. As far as a woman on the world's stage today, who can even touch her for style?
At 56 years old (twice divorced, two grown sons and in a relationship to get all that out of the way), she has obviously hit her professional stride as managing director of the World Monetary Fund and Woman in Charge of Herself.

If she's got one trick up her sleeve (make that around her neck), the lady knows how to wear a scarf:

If Helen Mirren is between projects she might consider her next role.
When Helen met Christine...

Our own Hillary Clinton is awarded the Most Improved Since College. Methinks Christine has always had It.
Hillary the graduate and summa cum laude

And while we're on the subject of Women We Love (in this case not all of whom are real), let's not forget Terence Stamp in his wonderful turn as Bernadette in "Priscilla Queen of the Desert".
Singing Bernadette's praises


  1. only 56? I thought she would be older :-(

    Love, Ylenia from Longuette

  2. Great post! I can't believe you included Bernadette!! "Priscilla" is one of my all time favorite movies!!!

  3. She looks fabulous! I only recently found your blog and really enjoy it. I am nearing 60 and just let my hair go gray and could not be happier that I did.

  4. She is one of those women who stun with their brains and beauty. She's not conventionally pretty, but age has been really good to her. I've been thinking about that a lot lately; how ageing can sometimes be coming of age (ah ... I feel a blog topic coming on!) So good to see a women with gravitas and is sleek as a seal at the same time.
    Thank you (again!) for the inspiration!

  5. Thanks, Janin for your nice words. I've hedged around the idea of this coming-of-age thing. Hope you pursue it. BTW I love your red boots, but the interface is blocking my replies to your blog.

    1. Rats. Do you know what I can do about that? I'll go looking for the problem this weekend. Let me know if you know of any remedies I can try.
      Thank you for alerting me, and for reading about my boots!

  6. I did alert them in the help box of the problem (did not recognize the hidden words required to decipher before posting). Maybe you can unlock that feature???

  7. I thought she would be older as well. I think Helen Miran is my age and that is almost 20 years older than Christine. But it is not about "appearing" it is about "being" and she seems to be lovely and highly accomplished.

  8. I’ve been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the web will be a lot more useful than ever before.
