On Friday, Closer magazine revealed why Brigitte Macron, the 66-year-old wife of the 41-year-old French president, had been keeping a low profile. Shortly after the Bastille Day celebrations of July 14, Mrs. Macron slipped into the American Hospital in Neuilly-sur-Seine, a private clinic favored by celebrities, where she received some surgery that left her looking, shall we say, revitalized.
The Irish Independent, however, kindly offered a different theory for Mrs. Macron’s more-youthful-than-before glow. Putting a fresh face on a piece they had published two years ago, they re-surfaced it, saying, “Her secret? Ten kinds of fruits and vegetables every day, and a healthy right dose of cheese and wine when she fancies.”
