Carla Bruni Posing Happily In Vogue Paris December 2012

  • Pin it

When I saw the cover, I was – much like many of you – disappointed by the copious amount of retouching applied to Carla Bruni Sarkozy‘s Vogue feature. Carla is undoubtedly a gorgeous woman, her features are still unchanged by the passing of time, ever since her glory, golden supermodels days.

Stepping back from the public politic life as her husband is no longer the President of France, Carla Bruni is slowly getting her privacy back. As such, the title of her main Vogue Paris pictorial is more than suitable: The Seven Lives of Carla Bruni. (the story continues right after the jump! Click here for the gallery!)

Carla Bruni Vogue Paris Mario Sorrenti

Photographed by Mario Sorrenti mostly in black and white and styled by Emmanuelle Alt herself, the pictorial is just a nice support for a long interview Carla is generously giving to Vogue Paris. My French is rusty, but from what I could understand, Carla is still the same romantic soul that spawned all her beautiful poems and songs. But what I liked the most is her saying that:

‘The most difficult part is still ahead: the second part of life. Like Bette Devis said: “Getting old is not for puss!es.”’

Nope, it’s not. But neither is coping with that much Photoshop…

Going further, I discovered more goodies that the passionate people from tFS had scanned for our enjoyment. Carla has more than one photo – story in this double issue of Vogue Paris. The cover pictorial, the one signed by Mert and Marcus – also in black and white – is also undeniably pretty, but in a more iconic way.

There’s this insightful perspective she offers on what and who she finds inspiring but others talk about Carla too, back from when they first met her, in the 90s Fashion golden era. All in all, it’s a really interesting issue. Definitely worth your consideration this month!

She was a lovely and stylish First Lady of France. She looks great in these photos. :)

Her home looks very nice. and cosy. Seen it once on tv. She was interviewed in that home before Sarkozy :)

I guess you have not read her view on feminism?

Oh I read her ridiculous view on Feminism, sadly it smacks of delusion and privilege.
Not a fan of her ‘ideas’ but she was a very stylish First Lady of France.

About feminism, indeed. That’s what I meant.

Yes, she was a stylish first lady. But what has she done in those years being other than that? Of course I can be wrong.

Her face has changed. On paps photos she looks slightly like Joyce Wildestein. Too much botox or whatever. Wonderful photo shopped here. She was such a beauty who could have grown beautifully and gracefully older with her features.
I liked her and her catwalk style a lot back in her hey days. She also came across as nice, friendly and stylish.

(I do not care about her affairs. They were all grown ups after all.)
