Carla on the cover of MujerHoy

Picture by Mujer Hoy

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 visits school

Picture by Hola

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 spotted in jacket from GapKids

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.

Carla for Femme Actuelle

You have probably heard all about Carla's interview with Femme Actuelle (women magazine in France) and how Carla called Nicolas her chou-chou (sweet nickname for someone's husband or boyfriend). However, we just found this great link with all the videos of the interview by 5 Femme Actuelle readers to Carla, who talks about her foundation, her work, her life, her role as first lady (and also a video with her dogs!) and also more vanal things such as what she carries in her handbag. They also show the readers' opinions after meeting her.
It's in French but well worth a check even if you don't speak French!

Recalling past interviews

It's not very often we see interviews of Carla, so I just thought of including some recent interviews of Carla. Carla sounds lovely in them. Enjoy!

Carla in November

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

Carla participated on 18th November in a visit to Qatar, where she took part in events concerning education. Mrs Bruni was invited by Her Higness Sheikha Mozah. Mr Sakorzy joined her afterwards in the country for meetings with Qatar’s ministers after a visit to Saudi Arabia where he was on official visit. She aimed to promote the opening of branches of French Universities such as HEC school of management, the Pasteur medical research organisation and cancer research centre IRCAD in Qatar. She joins with this initiative the aims of Sheikha Mozah (wife of Qatar’s Emir) who works with effort on promoting education in Qatar. It seems that this two ladies have more things in common than just their exquisite elegance. An article by AFP confirms that the relationship between both ladies is close: “La relation entre les deux femmes est personnelle et forte” as confirmed by a source from the Elysee. Sheikha Mozah and Carla Bruni met during a State visit to France earlier on this year.

Later on in the day Carla attended along with other high-profile ladies and gentlemen (such as Mrs Irina Bokova UNESCO Director General, Mrs Ruth Dreifuss Former President of the Swiss Confederation, Mr Gerhard Schroeder Former Chancellor of Germany, Fidel V. Ramos Former President of the Philippines and Biz Stone Co-founder of Twitter Inc) the WISE Awards presentation that Her Highness Sheikha Mozah held. The Laureates were from Brazil, the US, Paraguay, Ghana and Colombia.
