Carla Bruni discovered in leggy 1989 shoot
Back in the day, Carla Bruni was known not for her high-profile marriage to French president Nicolas Sarkozy but for her modelling career, with the beauty resurfacing in a British catalogue from 1989.

Donning a pair of stockings along with lacy underwear from Next's line in the late 80s, Carla showed exactly why the likes of Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton and current husband Mr Sarkozy all fell for her natural beauty.

However, nothing she was doing pushed boundaries she'd already vaulted over before, with a number of arty nude pictures having greeted the public eye in recent months.

For example, Carla Bruni in Bed - a photo taken by Pamela Henson in 1994 depicting the French first lady nude - fetched $19,600 (£11,500) in Berlin at the beginning of the month.
