Valerie Trierweiler Takes A Style Tip From Michelle Obama In Bow Blouse (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

We knew Michelle Obama gave Valérie Trierweiler first lady advice, but could Mrs. O have offered up some fashion tips as well?

It certainly looks like it.

The French "first lady" stepped out in South Africa yesterday during a trip with her partner, President François Hollande, wearing a chic blouse and pencil skirt. The streamlined ensemble was certainly an elegant European look, but the bow top was pure FLOTUS.

Michelle certainly loves her bows when it comes to her wardrobe, but the white bow-adorned blouse has become one of her style signatures. It's no wonder Val decided to take a tip from her fashionable American counterpart.

Check out both ladies' bow tops below and tell us if you think it should be a first lady staple.
