Valerie Trierweiler Cannes Film Festival Appearance Is Sadly Red Carpet-Free (VIDEO)

May 21, 2013

Valérie Trierweiler isn't known as the most glam French first lady -- the journalist tends to eschew cameras and glitzy events (with few exceptions, of course). So we weren't surprised to learn that Val's visit to this year's Cannes Film Festival did not include a red carpet appearance.

President François Hollande's companion hit up the screening of Claude Lanzmann's documentary "The Last of the Unjust" on Sunday, and she managed to go relatively unnoticed. Rather than grace the iconic carpeted stairs on the Promenade de la Croisette, Valérie chose to enter the Palais des Festivals through the artists' entrance. Quoi? Pas glamour?

We've become accustomed to this kind of discretion from the 48-year-old, though, and we can't say we blame her for avoiding the scrutinizing cameras.
