Same for everyone
They seem happy with them, and they probably are. On June 26, G7 leaders met with European Commission President Ursula van der Leyen and European Council President Charles Michel at Elmau Castle in the Bavarian Alps. There, for three days, they chained encouragement and promises to Ukraine and its citizens. Before posing, apparently qualified, he lived with a sense of accomplishment.
Long to rest
For this occasion, the eight men in the photo were very careful not to wear a tie, thus perpetuating this tradition marked by false relaxation and genuine communication, born at the G8 organized in 2012 at Camp David in the United States. That year, François Hollande was publicly taken in by Barack Obama when he appeared in a tie for a family photo. “Francois, we said you can take the tie off! », introduced the US president to his French alter ego.
Reverse the jacket
If everyone is aligned, this year, in the question of a tie, the French president found a new way to distinguish himself. Thus, only Emmanuel Macron, who has isolated himself on the diplomatic chessboard, has dropped his jacket. In this case, he may have a particular grudge against Boris Johnson, who announced he was stripping for the traditional group photo. of “To show we are more muscular than Putin”. But Emmanuel Macron should know that you should never trust a British Prime Minister.
In this case, Boris Johnson may have had his jacket over his shoulder, looking the most awkward of all. Crazy hair, baggy pants, shirt too unbuttoned, wet, belly pressed, he confirms during this photo the theory that his presence in an assembly mechanically changes everyone a little bit. More elegant than that.
The men who chose to keep their jackets buttoned, even without a tie, showed a certain dignity in this photo. But above all, the president of the European Commission, Ursula van der Leyen, is out of the game.Thus, her salmon suit jacket reminds us that, in terms of clothing, colors have been around for a long time. Women’s uniqueness and their mastery of shades is unmatched.
