Meet a (Former) Model: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, First Lady of France

Former supermodel, and now First Lady of France, Carla Bruni's relationship with the world may vary country to country, but there was no doubt she held the world's attention accompanying her husband President Sarkozy to the United Kingdom last week. The photo above is a portrait by photographer Michael Comte taken in 1993. The photo is set to go on auction at Christie's in New York April 10 and is expected to reach $2,000-$4,000.

According to her New York Times profile, the now Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was one of the highest paid models of the '90s holding campaigns for Dior and Chanel while attaining some 250 magazine covers around the globe. Bruni is the daugher of a concert pianist, Marisa Borini, and her stepfather is Italian tire magnate and classical composer, Alberto Bruni Tedeschi.

Besides modeling, Bruni-Sarkozy js also known for her many past love affairs with rock stars (Mick Jagger and Eric Claption). Not to mention that tricky relationship with she stole her beau's married son... (Read some more about her yourself here and here.)

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy helps define the world supermodel with her life story-line to those in and beyond the world of fashion.
Now, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy plays her role as First Lady quietly and seems only to be having a love affair with Dior
pour John Galliano. It was strictly Dior for her stay in the United Kingdom; in case you didn't recognize any of the bags, including the Dior "babe" bag, she hauled while visiting the United Kingdom.
