Carla Bruni-Sarkozy makes dowdy debut at UK state visitMarch 27th, 2008 - 4:58 pm ICT by admin
London, Mar 27 (ANI): With the whole world buzzed by her nude pics, French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy cut a surprisingly demure and understated figure when she arrived in UK.
Her look was so distinctly dowdy that she looked like a carbon copy of former US first lady Jackie Kennedy Onassis.
Clearly anxious to make a good impression, the Italian model and singer ditched bling-bling in favour of a buttoned-to-the-neck grey coat and hat.
And style pundits can’t get over the similarity between her take-me-seriously look and that of style icon Jackie.
“Carla Bruni is trying to show she has learned from the best, The Sun quoted Sun fashion editor Erica Davies, as saying.
“But her drab grey Dior coat and flat black shoes fall way short of the Jackie Kennedy mark.
“Teamed with a strange little pill box hat, the Italian-born supermodel looked more like an air hostess for the private jet she and new hubby Nicolas had arrived on.
“While Jackie O oozed glamour with her sharp Courreges skirt suits and classic Chanel tailoring, Carla looked as though she had tried too hard to emulate the style, she added. (ANI)
