Sacre Bleu! Jackie Never Posed Like That; French First Lady Jumps At Camelot Comparison In Chat with Newhouse's Vanity Fair
Sacre bleu! Is there not a day that someone in public life doesn't compare themselves to the Kennedys? In our latest episode of "Compare-alot", we see Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy, comparing herself to former American First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy.
"She was so young and modern, and of course unconsciously I would project myself more like Jackie Kennedy than, for instance, Madame de Gaulle, who would be much more like the classical French woman behind her husband," Bruni said in an interview with Vanity Fair magazine, owned by Si Newhouse.
One thing Jackie never did was pose in the buff before she met her Jack. Nor did she date Mick Jaggger and Eric Clapton, as did the new French premiere dame. "I never realized how many nude pictures I did before I met Nicolas," said Madame Sakorzy.
