No wonder French president Nicholas Sarkozy looked every inch the proud husband. His wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was breathtakingly stunning as she accompanied him to a state dinner in Paris this week.
Carla, ever youthful and beautiful at 42, was the centre of attention in a dramatic floor length Roland Mouret gown.
The Italian-born singer was helping her husband welcome his Russian equivalent Dimitry Medvedev to the Elysee Palace. The visiting president had been on a three day visit to France, which wrapped up on Wednesday.
