Carla Bruni-Sarkozy To Guest Edit Madame Figaro

The weekly, which hits newsstands on Saturday, features an interview in which Bruni-Sarkozy addresses rumors regarding her marriage to President Sarkozy.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has confirmed her status as first lady of French fashion with a guest-editing stint at Madame Figaro magazine, which asked designers including Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier to sketch one-off outfits for the former model.

 

The weekly, which hits newsstands on Saturday, features an interview in which Bruni-Sarkozy addresses recent rumors regarding her marriage with French President Nicolas Sarkozy.

 

“[Rumors] have always existed. But I despise those that stem from a blog and that are written by people calling themselves Mickey or Superman,” she says in the issue. “I also despise so-called journalists who use blogs as a credible source of information.”

 

Bruni-Sarkozy, who also has a successful career as a singer, took advantage of her temporary editor in chief position to commission features about some of her favorite things: her charity foundation, U2 front man Bono and her close friends Farida Khelfa and Marine Delterme, who appear in a photo shoot lensed by Ellen von Unwerth.
