The Simply Luxurious Life®: Rules of Style – Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

Rules of Style – Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

With the recent announcement of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy’s pregnancy with her husband French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s child, I couldn’t help but want to take a closer look at her style. Standing at 5’9” tall, the 43 year old former model has revealed through her fashion choices a very sound sense of decorum and impressive French style.

While a singer (click here to view her most recently released album), Bruni also has a cameo in Woody Allen’s film Midnight in Paris as a museum guide that is scheduled to be released in the United States this Friday (May 20th) and opened the 64th Cannes Film Festival that is currently under way.

With French sensibility and that je ne sais quoi touch, she appears to be a chameleon who can adapt to any situation she is placed.  Have a look at a few of her rules of style that she regularly reveals to the public.

I have to say I love her style, so classic and refined, lady like and chic. Love the tailored dresses, little cropped jackets, she carries that look beautifully. That picture of her in the belted gray coat next to Queen the entire ensemble.

Her outfits as First Lady are simply the best of French fashion.

Perfect choice - not a bad outfit in sight!

I need this type of inspiration since I've been thinking more and more about a work wardrobe overhaul!

Beautiful sense of style! I love the first photo, I wish I looked like that while reading a book!

I don't know if this is happening for other people but on my computer a lot of the photos on the site are pixelated.

Just wanted to tell you that I bookmarked this post for the longest time and I'm just now finally getting to see it. You captured her style so beautifully! I'm incredibly inspired. Thank you!

Carla Bruni's style is just ok, I am not impressed at all. She knows how to match her colors and her choice of attires is not always appealing.
If you are a connoisseur in style then the first lady of Qatar, Sheikha Moza Al-Misned is the one to admire. In my opinion she is the most stylish first lady int the world.

I once saw her in person - she was so warm and smiled at me :) I totally was mesmerized by her stunning beauty! She reeks of old money, class, breeding and just plain beauty and good sober taste.
