Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is not the typical first lady, who can be seen next to the president of such a conservative country like France. She has repeatedly been accused of breach of official protocol events. She even affords to openly criticize the Pope. Bruni walks the distance from the catwalk to the Elysee Palace, form the first man of the rock music – Mick Jagger to the first man in the country – Nicolas Sarkozy.

Carla Bruni was born on December 23, 1968 in Turin, Italy. Comes from a wealthy family that owns a company for production of tires. When she was 5 she moved with her parents to France, due to threats of kidnapping. Carla grew up in Paris and later on graduated a school in Switzerland. At the age of 19, she returned to Paris and no longer after she started a career of a model. Carla Bruni entered the world of fashion and quickly became one of the 20 most expensive top models, earning $ 7.5 million per year. She worked for the most famous designers and fashion houses, including Givenchy, Dior, Paco Rabanne, Sonia Rykiel, Chanel, Versace and many others.

Bruni quickly became a darling of the tabloids, thanks to her relationships with famous men like Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton, Donald Trump, Kevin Costner and Vincent Perez. She became famous with the words that that she is easily bored by monogamy, and that “love lasts a long time, but the burning attraction between men and women – just a week or two.

In 1998, Bruni leaved the catwalk and dedicated her time to her other great passion – singing. Her first album “Somebody said to me” (2002) enjoyed a huge interest across Europe. In 2007 she released her second album. However, in 2001 she did something more important: she gave birth to her son, Aurélien. The media are very interested of the news, as the boy’s father is the French philosopher Raphael Entoven. The truth is that Carla had a relationship with his father some years before…

Reviews were contradictory and varied from strong approval of the new first lady to absolutely negative.
