Christie's to auction nude snap of Carla Bruni, France's First Lady
La Times ^ | 03.26.08

Posted on 03/26/2008 11:18:02 AM PDT by Perdogg

What controversy has French President Nicolas Sarkozy drummed up now?

The unpopular European leader is catching flack for many, many things, not the least of which is his recent marriage to supermodel and singer Carla Bruni.

And now a full-frontal nude (read, "not work safe") photo of his new model/wife will be auctioned off April 10 in New York.

Actively making the rounds in the British tabloids, the release of the photo appears to be timed with an official visit by Sarkozy and Bruni to Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh. Way to impress your new friends!

Word is that Carla is horrified.

I hear Carla is really upset. Gosh darn, maybe she shouldn’t have posed for the picture in the first place.

unpopular?
Why would the LA Times label him that? Because he’s not some socialist, anti-american clown like Chirac?

Having seen the photo I have to say she looks better with her clothes on.

Gotta love those progressive first ladies.

Why if Frau Clinton posed nude for Playboy, even I might consider voting for her...for about 30 seconds.

According to legend, there are nudes of her (and G W Bush) taken at Yale as part of a study.

That’s not the actual photo. Go to the site to see the B&W nude shot.

Makes me think of the next question for Chelsea: "Hey, Chelsea, do you have any nudes of your mom? No??? You wanna buy some?"

Camel toe?

I was playing Scrabble with my nana over Christmas and I kept trying to convince her that Cameltoe is one word. I never win.

she’s horrified? Nice one.
She spends her model days partying & plowing through rock stars and celebs. Some old enough to be her father. Now she marries the president of France and expects to be treated like the definition of class and a role model of respectible behavior.
Dream on Carla.

I can see why she’s horrified. Released photos didn’t do anything for Fergie’s relationship with the queen. And BTW, I thought French women didn’t shave.

More "fair and balanced" journalism.

Oh, duh! I just made the remark that I thought French women didn’t shave — thanks for the reminder! LOL I guess Italian women do! ;) Then again, I would think all models probably shave especially before shoots and runway shows... I don’t envy them!

Study of what ???? who Hill and GW? or the French tart, err first “lady” and GW? Iether one would give me night mares .....

They are French what is the horrific noise about? Didn’t the French , slyly laugh and say things like “Finally a president that is human” when Clinton was frolicking in the White House?

so man divorces wife, and then goes on to marry a pretty model.

At least in the marriage department he is doing better than x42

very nice; shame our retard tabloids have to make a big thing about it. As far as I’m concerned, if one wanted to make a case against freedom of the press, ours would be it.

Exactly my first thought after reading that.

I don't think he's unpopular.
