Carla in New York

Carla was in New York with her husband to attend several meetings and events relating to poverty, the rates of death during maternity and other several diplomatic issues.
Carla met with Queen Rania of Jordan and Wendi Murdoch, wife of media tycoon, to discuss poverty in the Hotel Carlyle of New York in the Upper East side. The three ladies were photographed after having dinner in the roof's terrace of the hotel. Later on, she attended a gala dinner for the
Elie Wiesel foundation with her husband, where Mr Sarkozy received a prize for humanitarian cooperation. Carla wore a blue gala gown by Dior, who also dressed her for her visit to the Metropolitan Museum for the White House Symposium on Advancing Global Literacy luncheon on September 22, 2008. Together, they visited the Guggenheim museum.

As seen, they also incorporated in their tight schedule some cultural tourism. They were seen jogging together followed by their bodyguards, you can see a picture in the Hola link below. Carla received praise by the media when she visited the UN session with her husband. 'Some other First Ladies prefer the boutiques in Fifth Avenue, Carla is different', they claimed. She chose a professional diplomatic cut suit for the UN visit.

Update: Carla also visited the 'Appeal of Conscience Foundation', where she wore a flattering little black dress. The Sarkozy's were also seen out for a walk together after their engagements. Some pictures of this activities are included in the Gala gallery of the visit to New York.
