Biography for Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy (born Carla Gilberta Bruni Tedeschi, 23 dec. 1967 (54 years ago)) is an Italian-born, naturalized French songwriter, singer, and former model. She is the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy whom she married on 2 Feb. 2008 (13 years ago).

Early years

Carla Gilberta Bruni Tedeschi was born in Turin, Italy, and is heiress to the fortune created by the Italian tire manufacturing company CEAT, founded in the 1920 (101 years ago) by her grandfather Virginio Bruni Tedeschi. The company was sold in the 1970 (51 years ago) to Pirelli (the brand lives on via its former subsidiary in India, founded in 1958 (63 years ago)). The family moved to France in 1975 (46 years ago), reportedly to escape the threat of kidnapping by the Red Brigades, a Marxist-Leninist terrorist group active in Italy in the 1970 (51 years ago). Bruni grew up in France from age seven and attended boarding school in Switzerland. She went to Paris to study art and architecture, but left school at 19 to become a model.



Bruni signed with City Models at age 19. Paul Marciano, president and creative director of Guess? Inc., came across her picture (wallpaper) among composite cards of aspiring models and chose her to model with Estelle Lefébure in campaigns for Guess? jeans. Bruni subsequently worked for designers and fashion houses such as Christian Dior, Givenchy, Paco Rabanne, Sonia Rykiel, Christian Lacroix, Karl Lagerfeld, John Galliano, Yves Saint-Laurent, Chanel and Versace. By the 1990s, Bruni was among the 20 highest-paid fashion models, earning $7.5 million a year. While modeling, Bruni dated Eric Clapton, then Mick Jagger. On 11 Apr. 2008 (13 years ago), a 1993 (28 years ago) nude photograph of Bruni sold at auction for US$91,000 (65,093 €) — more than 60 times the expected price. She was a modeling subject of a 1999 (22 years ago) trompe-l'œil wool-knit dress body painting by Joanne Gair that is included in Gair's second book, Body Painting: Masterpieces by Joanne Gair.


In 1997 (24 years ago), Bruni quit the world of fashion to devote herself to music. She sent her lyrics to Julien Clerc in 1999 (22 years ago), based on which he composed seven tracks on his 2000 (21 years ago) album Si j'étais elle.

In 2002 (19 years ago), her debut album Quelqu'un m'a dit, produced by ex-lover Louis Bertignac, was released in Europe with success in Francophone countries. Three songs from the album appear in Hans Canosa's 2005 (16 years ago) American movie Conversations with Other Women, the song Le Plus Beau du quartier was used in H&M's Christmas 2006 (15 years ago) commercial, and the title track was featured in the 2003 (18 years ago) movie Le Divorce and in the 2009 (12 years ago) movie (500) Days of Summer.

In 2005 (16 years ago), she duetted with Louis Bertignac on the song Les Frôleuses on his new album. In 2006 (15 years ago), Bruni recorded Those Little Things an English-language translation of the Serge Gainsbourg song Ces petits riens for the tribute album Monsieur Gainsbourg Revisited. She took part in the opening ceremony of the 2006 (15 years ago) Winter Olympics in a parade paying tribute to the Italian flag.

Her second album, No Promises containing poems by William Butler Yeats, Emily Dickinson, W. H. Auden, Dorothy Parker, Walter de la Mare, and Christina Rosetti, set to music, was released in Jan. 2007 (14 years ago).

Her music career did not cease after becoming the First Lady. She released her third album Comme si de rien n'était (As If Nothing Happened) on 11 Jul. 2008 (13 years ago). The songs are self-penned except for one rendition of "You Belong to Me" and another song featuring a poem La Possibilité d'une île by Michel Houellebecq set to music. Royalties from the album will be donated to unidentified charitable and humanitarian cause.

Bruni-Sarkozy sang for Nelson Mandela's 91st birthday on Jul. 18, 2009 (12 years ago) at Radio City Musical Hall in New York City. The event was her first public music appearance since marrying Sarkozy.

She is currently working on her fourth album and according to reports will be collaborating with Lenny Kravitz.

In sep. 2009 (12 years ago), she recorded a duet with Harry Connick, Jr. for the French edition of his album Your Songs. The duet is "And I love her", written by Lennon/McCartney. The album is released in France on Oct. 26, 2009 (12 years ago).

Personal life


It has been claimed that Bruni was involved with Louis Bertignac, Mick Jagger (Jagger's wife acknowledged his affair with Bruni was a reason for their separation), Eric Clapton, Léos Carax, Charles Berling, Arno Klarsfeld, Vincent Perez and former French Prime Minister Laurent Fabius.

She has said she is easily "bored with monogamy", and that "love lasts a long time, but burning desire — two to three weeks".

The Enthovens

While living with Jean-Paul Enthoven, Bruni fell in love and started an affair with his son, philosophy professor Raphaël Enthoven (the song "Raphäel" from Bruni's album Quelqu'un m'a dit is named after him), who was at the time married to novelist Justine Lévy, daughter of philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy. Bruni later denied ever having an affair with Raphaël's father in an interview published in Vanity Fair, "I never slept with him, not even a minute."

The affair and the ending of her marriage were inspiration for Justine's 2004 (17 years ago) book Rien de Grave (published in English in 2005 (16 years ago) as Nothing Serious). In it, she paints a vitriolic portrait of "Paula", the surgically-enhanced model who steals the protagonist's husband and describes her as "a preying mantis" and "a leech of a woman with a Terminator smile".

Bruni and Raphaël had a son, Aurélien, in 2001 (20 years ago). The couple broke up in May 2007 (14 years ago) because Raphaël thought their relationship did not have a commitment, as she told Vanity Fair.

Marriage to Nicolas Sarkozy

Bruni met recently divorced French president Nicolas Sarkozy in Nov. 2007 (14 years ago) at a dinner party. After a brief romance they married on 2 Feb. 2008 (13 years ago) at the Élysée Palace in Paris. The marriage is Bruni's first and Sarkozy's third. Bruni obtained French nationality not long afterwards. She has since made contradictory statements as to whether she still holds Italian nationality as well.


Though she is legally a daughter of Italian concert pianist Marisa Borini and industrialist and classical composer Alberto Bruni Tedeschi, Bruni-Sarkozy revealed to Vanity Fair in 2008 (13 years ago) that her biological father is an Italian-born, naturalized Brazilian grocery magnate Maurizio Remmert, who, as a young classical guitarist, had a six-year affair with her mother. Her sister is actress and movie director Valeria Bruni Tedeschi. She also had a brother, Virginio Bruni Tedeschi (1959 - 4 Jul. 2006 (15 years ago)), who died from complications of HIV/AIDS.

From her biological father, she has a half-sister, Consuelo Remmert.
