Spotlight: Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, 42, has once again emerged as a fashion icon - almost, it seems, by accident. Despite her heiress status (Bruni's legal parents are the wealthy Marisa Borini, pianist, and Alberto Bruni Tedeschi, composer; she is the lovechild of businessman Maurizio Remmert) and fashion model background, Carla Bruni claims to have a laissez-faire fashion attitude. "There are things that give me no pleasure: objects, clothes, jewelry. I've worn them all, but all that stuff interferes with my daily life," Bruni told Vogue in 2009.

This however, hasn't prevented Mrs. Bruni-Sarkozy from wearing the very best. Bruni's enviable wardrobe, which consists mostly of Dior and Chanel, is heavy on the classics. Sheath dresses and well-tailored suits dominate her wardrobe - except, of course, when the singer is out playing her guitar (then she opts for blazers and denim). It is this appreciation of the classics that transcends time, and it is no surprise that Bruni continues to turn heads.
