Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Unhappy With Purse Featuring Her Naked

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is none too pleased that clothing maker Pardon is using a nude photo of her on a tote bag without her consent, and she’s seeking $167,000 in damages, which, if she wins her claim, would be donated to charity. The bag features a silk-screened version of a 1993 photograph taken during Bruni-Sarkozy’s modeling days. (A print of the photo sold for $91,000 in April.) A speech bubble coming out of the nude First Lady of France’s mouth reads, “My guy should have bought me Pardon!” Bruni-Sarkozy is protesting Pardon’s use of her image without her consent and for commercial gain, as the company sells the bags for around $4 and gives them to customers who make purchases in their stores.

    Music

    • Carla Bruni
    • Comme Si de Rien N’Etait
      Former model and current outspoken first lady of France Carla Bruni has released a record so sweet and simply sexy that you know she’s exactly the kind of classy slut she says she is.

    Why Carla Bruni And Nicolas Sarkozy’s Marriage Will Work

    The September issue of Vanity Fair features French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy on the cover, looking as effortlessly glamourous as ever wearing a classic white collared shirt, jodhpurs, and leather riding boots. Writer Maureen Orth spoke with Carla, and also met President Nicolas Sarkosy (who told her, “I am happy like nev-air.”), and the first lady seems absolutely charming. While some may think their whirlwind, three-month romance was too rushed and the relationship couldn’t possibly last (she didn’t even vote for him in the last election), we think it just might work, and here’s why.

    Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s Rise In Popularity Since Getting With The French Prez

    Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s latest album Comme si de rien n’était is the number one album in France, beating out Coldplay’s Viva la Vida in its first full week on sale. Now, Carla was famous before she married French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but she was by no means at the same level as Miley Cyrus, at least when it came to record sales. She still isn’t anywhere near as popular as Miley, but we’ve been checking up on the Amazon.com sales ranking of her last album, No Promises since the moment we heard she and Nicolas got together, and it is clear that getting involved with him has helped her career. Keep reading for a chart showing how her sales ranking has dropped (that’s a good thing) since getting with Nicolas in December. Keep reading »

    France Gets A New Figurehead

    According to a recent national study of sex lives, one in five French dudes, from ages 18-24, “has no interest in sex” and the abstinence rate in men under 35 is double that of the ladies’. To counteract the shocking switch, French women have become more aggressive and have even doubled their number of partners since the 1970s. In France, females are screwing around with as much abandon as the males have traditionally been attributed and are getting even friskier after fifty. As the 600-page report proves, French women have risen to the challenge. Their icon: First Lady/model Carla Bruni. The Italian beauty, who wed President Nicholas Sarkozy last month, has boasted about her sexploits, from Mick Jagger to Eric Clapton, and was recently quoted bashing monogamy. Three cheers for: Liberté! Egalité! Vajayjé! [Telegraph] Keep reading »
