Spain doesn't stop talking about Mrs Bruni

Carla and Nicolas visit to Spain is in the air in Spain. Everyone is talking about the elegance and beauty of the lovely French First Lady and how she stole the show from her husband.

An agenda of the visit can be found here (although unfortunately Carla's events don't all appear there.

Carla arrived in Madrid's Barajas Airport in an Azzedine Alaïa ensemble. Video: Arrival Much more informal than the one she wore to meet the Queen of England this time. She later changed to meet the King, Queen and Princes of Asturias at an official reception lunch to a Dior purple dress with Louboutin kitten heels, a Roger Vivier clutch and Chaumet jewelery. Princess Letizia met Bruni then and the press just couldn't stop comparing them.

The itinerary then continued to a visit to the Prado Museum. The couple saw the Meninas and other Velazquez paintings. Sarkozy and Carla wore the miniatures of the Order of Carlos III, which they were awarded some days ago.

Carla dazzled at the gala dinner with the royals together with Princess Letizia and the Queen. The royals wore the Legion d'Honneur (King, Prince and Queen) and the Ordre national du mérite (Letizia). Carla wore a simple velvet Prussian blue gown by Dior again (and demonstrated that less is more!). Check the video of the gala here. The First Lady seemed enchanted with the decorations at the Royal Palace. Check more pictures of the gala.
