Sophisticated Carla Bruni

The current French First Lady. Previously a model and a singer. She comes from Italy but grew up in France. In the 1990s she was one of the top models. Her song was used in one of my favourite movies - (500) Days of Summer. There was a lot of rumours about her relationships and a love affairs. Before she met her present husband, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, she was dating a long list of a rock stars, a writers, a politicians, a film directors and an actors. At the moment she devotes her time between a state visits and a philanthropic work. She didn't suspend her career as a singer - she's currently working on her 4th album.
Below are Carla's pictures taken by Javier Vallhonrat in 1996. One woman, many different faces. They remind me about Tori Amos and the series of photos for her album Strange Little Girls (2001) where she shown 12 different male visions of women.
