Sarkozy Wife

Posted by Admin

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was born Carla Gilberta Bruni Tedeschi near Christmas time in 1967, and she has the type of fairytale life so many young girls dream of living. Born in Italy she is the heir to a fortune. Her grandfather accumulated the family wealth with the Italian tire manufacturing company CEAT in the 1920’s. Under threat from the Red Brigades in Italy, her family moved to France in 1975 when Carla was seven.

After attending boarding school in Switzerland, she went to Paris to study art and architecture, but this existence was not for Carla. At 19, she became a model and her career soon soared. Her success came as little surprise. She was chosen to represent Estelle Lefebvre in campaigns for Guess? Jeans. She went on to work for Christian Dior, Givenchy, Paco Rabanne, Sonia Rykel, and Varsace. Bruni was among the highest paid fashion models in the 1990’s earning $7.5 million a year. Her personal life was just as awesome. She dated first Eric Clapton then the Rolling Stone’s Mick Jagger. In the early 1990’s, a nude photograph Bruni sold for an amazing $91,000.

Having tackled the world of fashion, Carla – future Sarkozy Wife decided to pursue music. By this decade her music was making it’s way to movies and featured in sound tracks for Le Divorce in 2003, 500 Days of Summer in 2009, and in January 2010 her song L’amoureuse was the featured song in NBC’s Chuck “Chuck vs. First Class” episode.

That her next role would be the wife of the President of France Nicolas Sarkozy seems only a matter of course after such a remarkable life. After her very interesting relationships and her statement that she became bored with a monogamous life soon in an affair, there was some questions about the couple’s choices. Jerry Hall the ex-wife of Mick Jagger cited Bruni as the reason behind the couple’s separation. It is in the area of relationships where Bruni frequently does not make fans. She had an affair with the husband of Justine Levy the novelist, who based her character Paula in the book Rien de Grave on Carla. The book was re-titled Nothing Serious when published in English. The character of Paula was not rendered kindly with the description being that of a husband stealing, surgically made-over, super model that considers men prey.

Bruni and Sarkozy meet in November 2007 while attending a dinner party. Their romance was brief and they married in the winter of 2008. She attends many state functions with her husband, but there is no telling what new challenges Bruni would decide to pursue next.

Sarkozy Height

The French President Nicolas Sarkozy might be a man of high office, but he’s still only 5’5. It seems he’s a bit self-conscious of the fact as he often stands on boxes or steps to give himself the appearance of just a little more height. To be fair, sometimes he stands on a box and on his tiptoes. The President’s aides must be a little conscious of the height issue too since they seem to look for opportunities to make their President look just a wee bit taller.

It’s not hard to see why height is an issue. Most people of think of being tall as commanding, powerful and extend to those with a few extra inches a bit more respect. The French President could use that kind of edge that nature neglected to bestow on him.

So, with an eye to appearances his aids try to help the President out where nature left him low and unkindly treated. One famous attempt that fell a bit flat was in September when Sarkozy visited a major industrial plant. His aids walked through the plant taking careful notes.

This time the notes were not on the working of the plant and the possible benefit the French people could gain from it’s enterprise, instead their focus was the employees. They carefully handpicked twenty employees to come to the President’s speech. This honor was not bestowed on the twenty most important or hardworking employees. Nor was it a matter of who was the most supportive of the President.

They took the twenty shortest. The aides had gone through the workers carefully looking for those who stood 5’5 or less in height. These lucky few employees were then bused to the podium where they could stand behind the French President in the hopes of making him look a little more impressive.

It’s thought that Mr. Sarkozy put the pressure on aides to find the shortest people to gather around him in order to avoid a repeat of an earlier embarrassing encounter in June. At that time, he was forced to stand next to Gordon Brown and Barack Obama during the D-Day commemorations. The French President was offered a footstool so that the photographers and camera operators could more easily get all three in a picture at the same time.

At first, the aides of the President tried to deny the height tampering. A spokesperson called the allegation “totally absurd and grotesque”. The head of the trade union however, confirmed the story.
