Carla Sarkozy — International Babe

Posted by Ryan on March 28, 2008

We all love Nicholas Sarkozy for single-handedly making it OK to like the French again, and giving the Republicans here in America a model to win in November.  But, we didn’t know much about his wife Carla until her recent trip to the UK this week.

Carla Sarkozy, formerly Carla Bruni (supermodel, poet, musician, actress, trysty lover of Mick Jagger et al), is taking the upper crust Euro political scene by storm.  She’s glitzy, beautiful, chic, with a French accent the British media is just lapping up, making her an absolute craze across the pond! 

Of course, she’s not the typical model for a major country’s First Lady, hence the paparazzi-like obsession of the media.  Plus, the coupling of she and Sarko might seem a bit awkward to some: he the articulate go-getter, she the fashionista/ditz.  Yet, the “New Diana” or the New “John and Jackie”?  I don’t know about that, but aesthetically, as First Ladies go, she reminds us of slightly aged eye-candy you still don’t need wine to appreciate.

    A damn sight easier on the eye than SWMNBN!

    Great to see a French Prez who acknowledges the immense sacrifice made by other nations to free France. He even seems to almost like the Brits.
