Ooh la la Carla!
Italian heiress, controversial supermodel, muse to numerous American rock legends, First Lady of France, global women's rights activist, acclaimed singer and songwriter, and soon to be mom, it's safe to say Carla Bruni has worn her fair share of (very cute!) hats over the years. I first became enamored with Carla after hearing her hit song, Quelqu'un m'a dit in the soundtrack of the movie, 500 Days of Summer, and have been a huge fan or her music--and wardrobe--ever since! Affectionately known as a modern day French Jackie-O, she possesses a certain 'je ne sais quoi' when it comes to personal style. Check out a few of my favorite looks (and why the work so well!) below.
By adding a funky patterned shawl to a simple evening gown and an interesting neckline or splash of Fuchsia to an otherwise basic coat, Carla puts a fresh spin on classic pieces.
This oh so polished ensemble exemplifies what I like to call "classy sexy". While her form fitting suit flatters every curve, the longer hemline, ballet flats and conservative tote ensure she looks polished and work appropriate.
By balancing out a loose flowing blouse with more tailored jeans, well chosen classic accessories and an elegant upswept bun, Carla appears casual with out looking messy.
From coats to cocktail attire, chic tailored suits to flowing blouses and jeans, Carla Bruni exudes style by blending classic feminine pieces with unexpected twists. Can't wait to see what the First Lady fashionista wears next!
