The Trend Report: An Icon Deconstructed

Carla Bruni, the first lady of France, wears many faces

See Carla as Jackie in Dior, with a pillbox hat and a crocodile purse, to visit the queen. There’s Saint Carla in a white silk scarf, a gift from the Dalai Lama. Then there were the images of Carla as musician in Dior Homme on an album cover or alongside Metallica on the BBC. Carla in mourning in simple black flats at the funeral for Yves Saint Laurent. The siren Carla in one-shouldered Hermès for a state dinner at the Elysée Palace or in silver studded sandals. We love them all.
