Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the glamorous wife of the French president, raised some eyebrows at a recent state dinner by turning up to the sombre affair in funky tights
The function at the Elysee Palace in Paris saw the French first lady arrive in a stylish one-shoulder black cocktail dress, combined with flat shoes and lacy tights
Her ensemble no doubt caught the eyes of South African president Jacob Zuma and his wife, Gloria Bongi Ngema-Zuma, who were visiting the French leader to discuss the political situation in the Ivory Coast.
Despite her undisputed sartorial elegance, Mrs Bruni-Sarkozy was recently beaten to the punch by American TV presenter Anne Sinclair, the wife of her husband's political rival Dominique Strauss-Kahn, in a poll that quizzed the French on who they would like to see as the next first lady.
