I think the Champs du Mars is a good place for that

The end of Champ de Mars, or from across the river, but street level.

I would have thought Trocadero as well but you need to get the positioning right, I think with her quite forward in the plaza there and the photographer a fair way back from her.

Some pics here. It is not exactly a novel idea

The Trocadero plaza and the other end of the Champ de Mars are about equidistant from the tower, and are far enough away and with a clear enough view for this type of shot. And it's easy to get right because there will be a dozen people taking the same novelty shot.
