Style Icon: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

2009 was the year of the “”political wife”.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was one of those making a fashion statement everywhere she went. Of course, being a former model helps somewhat. But there is no denying her style. An Italian French First Lady was always going to show up her counterparts.

On her visit to the UK at the beginning of 2008, Carla’s entire outfit (third photo from the left), from the 1960s pillbox hat to her grey wool coat and black leather gloves, was designed by the French couture house, Dior – a diplomatic choice, given that it is headed by the English designer, John Galliano.

Today’s style icon continues the French theme of January but (cleverly!) introduces a new political theme for the next few weeks! Check back for next week’s political style icon. If you have missed the previous style icons featured on the blog, check them out here.

Tell me, who is your style icon?
