A Look Back at Margaret Trudeau’s Best Style Moments

This week, Canada watched as the Liberals experienced a sweeping victory in the federal election and Justin Trudeau was elected as the new prime minister, ushering in a new era at Parliament and bringing with him a level of optimism and charisma reminiscent of his father’s.

As the Trudeau family settles into their new leading role, we’re looking forward to hearing more from Trudeau’s leading lady, Sophie Gregoire-Trudeau—the former TV reporter, Holt Renfrew personal shopper, mother of three and passionate women’s rights activist has quickly caught the public’s eye with her standout warm nature, and effortlessly elegant style.

In honour of the original Trudeau couple, Margaret and Pierre, that ignited #Trudeaumania several decades ago, we revisit some of the iconic former “first lady,” with a look at these heartwarming photos—our favourite starring baby Justin at her side. (Of course, we can’t help but swoon at the sheer elegance of the woman in head-to-toe sequins, either, turning heads at Studio 54.)
