Meet Marianne Helou, wife of Lebanese presidential candidate Henry Helou who’s name is currently being deliberated as a possible consensus candidate by the Progressive Socialist party. But it’s not Henry nor his political aspirations we’re interested in rather it’s Mrs. Helou, his French wife.
She’s a top tier socialite and a regular front rower at Paris Couture Week with her “glossy fur coat, her blonde hair perfectly coiffed.”
She’s been spotted and interviewed at the likes of Elie Saab, Georges Shakra, Zuhair Murad and Dany Atrache fashion shows in Paris just to name a few. She’s also a favorite face at Mondanite where you can find the blonde beauty repeatedly posing with friends as she makes her rounds on the Lebanese social scene. Marianne and her husband also seem to enjoy an active lifestyle sailing the Greek Islands on vacation and regularly spotted out and about.
I think Marianne Helou definitely has the poise and fashion sense required for First Lady material and would definitely be a subject of intrigue for international media if her husband where to be elected as Lebanon’s president. She would be the first French native to hold such a position and I think she would excel in the fashion department with her signature statement pieces styled with simple mostly black attire.
There’s no doubt Marianne Helou is an elegant woman who may just bring a new sort of charm and sophistication to the table.
