Much love for Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.

I have much love for Carla Bruni-Sarkozy!

Aside from her beauty, she has character and a personality.

Why can't other First Ladies be as interesting as Carla? First Ladies are prim and proper, chair of numerous charities and very often, the women behind their successful husbands as the very expense of their identities. (Except Cherie Blair and maybe Hillary Clinton.)

The silent women in the shadow of their husbands who have put aside aspirations and the life they once had because their husbands became head of states.

Along came Carla Bruni. It's refreshing to see one who really doesn't care what everyone else thinks of her personal life, releases an album and met the Queen.

I wonder how long it will take for First Ladies to claim their lives back, sing or continue to practise law/ medicine/ teach in schools/ continue their jobs.

Until then, much love for Carla!
