I'm Too Sexy

No, no, not me. It's Madame Sarkozy who is once again causing a stir. Turns out that she attended the state dinner for Russian president Dmitri Medvedev in a stunning skintight gown but sans appropriate undergarments. This didn't even make the French press until the British newspapers started making comments. Actually, the real problem with Madame Sarkozy is that she makes anyone standing next to her look like a dwarf or hopelessly frumpy or both. What's worse for her guests (especially poor Mrs. Medvedev who is only two years older than la belle Carla) is that she actually wasn't as smoking hot that night as she sometimes is. But you be the judge. You can find an incredible slide show on the Paris Match site right here.

OK, I don't know what this says about me, but the fact is, I don't find Carla attractive at all. She has a very odd face, somehow too flat in the flat parts and and too bulgy in the curved parts. It is like a mask, and not in the good Catherine Deneuve kind of way. Beyond that, she seems really dumb. I just don't get the appeal. Takes all kinds to make a world, I guess.

I agree. She didn't look sexy at all. Mrs. Medvedev just needs to be on What Not to Wear.

I think she looks amazing. Not wearing a bra wasn't exactly the smartest idea but she adds some sparkle and glamour to a stuffy state dinner.

I think that La Bruni looked fine, it was Paris after all. But I wouldn't want to see Michelle Obama dressed like this for a State Dinner.

I am with Daniel. If you look at her face she has had a eye lift (the Russian President's wife has not) and even without that - Carla has very small squinty eyes. I would say this is why she never became a huge successful model like the others in her time.

I think she is holding up fine (standing next to that angry shrimp). She is certainly holding on to her figure, although the lower half of her dress (?) seems problematical. Unfortunate is the make-up choices, that of a younger woman it accentuates the lines and eyes in a way that overemphasize the harshness of the plastic surgery. She should very much do a Deneuve, and go for a more feathered/layered softening approach. But as for too sexy for a state dinner, I don't think so, but I love women.

I like the friendliness of Mrs. Medvedev's smile, and she looks like she is laughing at something Ms. Bruni has just said, which implies a relationship between the two, but then I may be imagining it all.

Think a lamp post would end up looking frumpy next to her.

I'm surprised the British press would even think to comment on this. They're becoming too Americanized.

Carla is everything except sexy... mainly, she has the look of an alien.Bones and gums and teeth and no salt and no pepper, alas ! :)))
