She mentioned in the interview how she is happier living with Nicolas than alone, how she keeps a close relationship with Bernadette Chirac, reexplained that she has nothing to do with the politics of her husband... she also took the time to reply to the polls saying that the French do not relate fully with her and Nicolas saying that perhaps it is all about the "glamorous" pictures that go out, but that in reality it's not like that. We know Carla how you have been in disguise visiting the SAMU recently, so we believe you (check the video of Carla's visit to the SAMU by clicking here or the link below)! She also spoke about her work against AIDS.

Denis also confirmed he refused Carla's offer to live in a hotel during the winter because he "wouldn't know what to do surrounded by 4 walls". He also referred to Carla as a "great lady".

Carla participated in an interview with Michel Kazatchkine to be aired in a few countries on the World AIDS Day 2009, last Monday 1st December. The first lady also produced an official statement which you can read in her official webpage, in Le Monde (French) and in the FT (English). A great gallery of the interview shooting and behind-the-scenes pictures can be checked out here.
In order to highlight the current state of HIV and AIDS globally, as well as the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the Global Fund’s Ambassador for the protection of mothers and children against AIDS, and Professor Michel Kazatchkine, the Global Fund’s Executive Director, made a number of joint media appearances for World AIDS Day.Official information on the interview was included in the Global Fund webpage. You can view the complete interview by Carla by clicking here or in the link provided below or Spanish newspaper El Pais has also included a full transcript (Spanish).
Regarding the question on whether Carla's involvement had to do because of the death of her brother by this disease, she replied
"But my role with the global fund is really not linked to my brother's situation," she said. "My brother was lucky to live in France, to be treated in France, to have access to care, have access to the best hospitals. I am now a spokeswoman for people who have access to nothing."Also interesting to read is this article on Carla's secret night visits to outskirts hospitals of Paris, which we already reported.

Carla is on the cover of Spanish issue of Mujer Hoy in a great picture in an interview with the aim to promote AIDS day on 1st December. We are eager to find out what she will do on such an important date for her foundation and her work as first lady! Our first guest is that she will be present at a global UN initiative.

Carla visited this week on Thursday a school in a neighbourhood of Paris of Gagny. The school proposed a scheme to involve students in music to stop childhood delinquency. Carla looked lovely in a simple outfit very much appropriate to not overshadow the event and appear close to the children who were delighted with such a visitor.
The visit has apparently to do with getting inspiration and finding a model for the activities she wishes to develop with her foundation, which aims to promote access to culture.
Carla looked perfect during her performance with Harry Connick Jr for Canal+. Newspaper La Tercera reports the jacket is actually from Stella McCartney’s kids collection for Gap. Carla sang “And I love her” with Harry, which is originally a song by The Beatles: the choice of using Stella McCartney is apparently a blink to Paul McCartney, Stella’s father, who belonged to the very popular pop group.
I love people that use things they just like, not minding if they are meant for women, for men or for kids. That is real style, and that’s something Carla knows a lot about.

We have recently found out about the so many activities Carla was involved in during this last month by her oficial webpage, so here is a recap of what the lovely Mrs Bruni has been up to, apart from attending the Armistice Day as we reported earlier.
Visit to cancer research centre
The presidential couple visited the Paoli-Calmettes Institute in Marseille the 2nd November. President Sarkozy unveiled France's second national plan against cancer during a speech.

Concert for donation to Fondation Giorgio Cini
Carla together with her mother and sister Valeria attended a concert in Venice on Tuesday night to commemorate the donation of Alberto Bruni-Tedeschi's musical archives to the Fondation Giorgio Cini. She looked lovely in a trench coat and sunglasses.
Revelations Lancome event
The brand Lancome supports the access of young students to art studies who otherwise would not be able to afford them. You can read more on the initiative at Carla’s official page. The first stage of the process started the last 12th November
