Benetton is no stranger to controversial advertising, and its latest campaign is sure to get lips flapping.
President Barack Obama took a few moments at today’s G20 summit to congratulate French president Nicholas Sarkozy on the birth of his daughter, Giulia and offer some well wishes regarding her genetic inheritance.
Everyone’s excited about Carla Bruni‘s brand new bouncing baby daughter — but no one is more excited than the First Lady of France herself!
We noticed something during the United Nations General Assembly that might upset you, if you’re a fashion person. No, we’re not talking about when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called the entire organization a “hall of darkness” for his country. No, instead, you might be upset to know that none of the various heads of state really seemed to care what he put on his or her back.
Carla Bruni says she gets why people are so fascinated with her unborn child. But she says that regardless of the interest the press has with the child she’s about to deliver, she’s would like for everyone who doesn’t need to be in this childs life to just leave him or her the hell alone.
We don’t really like celebrity pregnancy speculation, but we’re fascinated with how news of Carla Bruni‘s growing belly is being covered. The latest news comes from the guy who set the supermodel up with the president of France, advertising tycoon Jacques Séguéla. He says the couple is having a garçon.
If you were still debating whether or not French First Lady Carla Bruni could be pregnant, debate no longer. Pal Sarkozy, French President Nicolas Sarkozy‘s father, told German newspaper Bild that he’s looking forward to having a granddaughter.
This could be totally true or totally false, but just the mere thought of Carla Bruni bringing another child into this world has us all sorts of excited.
Leading a country is tough work. Leading a country while racking up major style points is next to impossible. But the ten leaders, figure heads and heads of state on this list make rolling up one’s sleeves to do to the dirty work of governing look like a piece of cake — and maybe that’s because they all have really nice sleeves.
There’s a rumor going around that Pope Benedict XVI has banned Carla Bruni Sarkozy from The Vatican for taking nude photos in her modeling days. We weren’t so keen to believe it, so we did a little digging.
Remember when Belgium surpassed France in the race to be the first country to ban the usage of burkas? Yesterday, 336 votes against one voted for France’s President Nicolas Sarkozy’s proposed ban, taking France one step closer to becoming the second nation to host this law.
They say you can’t know where you’re going until you realize where you’ve been. With that in mind, we’re taking a glance back. The past week has been a roller coaster of fashion news and events — and luckily, we were there to catch the good (like Daisy’s dirty dancing), the bad, and the ugly.
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again, Karl Lagerfeld has a crazed, impossible to keep up with, work ethic that could make an Olympian feel like a total slacker. And apparently we’re not alone in our envy. Whilst mingling with France’s most fashionable (and powerful) at the Elysée presidential palace on Thursday, President Nicolas Sarkozy couldn’t help but admire the Herr’s productivity.
According to a Time magazine poll of 2009′s most influential people, Lady Gaga is number one. Not only does she beat out political leaders like French President Nicholas Sarkozy (5) and Hillary Clinton (4) but, more importantly, her Gaga-ness beat out typically fierce fashion titans like Marc Jacobs (99) and Anna Wintour (122).
Following in France’s attempted footsteps, Belgium is on its way to becoming the first country in Europe to ban the burka. Last year, France set into motion efforts to ban it as well and those efforts hit a wall on Monday, when the Council of State — France’s top administrative court — ruled that they could not legally outlaw the Islamic veils without stomping all over their citizens’ constitutional rights. What does this mean for Belgium?
