Frankly, Carla Bruni is tres cool. She is a drop-dead gorgeous, terminally chic, sexually liberated ex model and tire manufacturing heiress who has dated philosophers, moguls and rock stars and is, at present, the First Lady of France. Unfortunately, Carla Bruni's sexually liberated past may come back and politically embarrass her husband. From TheDailyMail via TheAwl:
"Hundreds of ‘highly intimate’ images of Carla Bruni and an ex-lover have been stolen during a burglary in Paris.
Police fear they could now be made public, overshadowing the French First Lady’ s official trip to Spain with her husband, President Nicolas Sarkozy.
"The photographs and videos were taken during 41-year-old Miss Bruni’s affair with philosopher Raphaël Enthoven – the father of her child, Aurélien, eight.
"Thieves broke into the flat of actor Julien Enthoven, who is Raphaël’s younger brother.
"Raphaël is believed to have entrusted the pictures to his 27-year-old brother because he did not want them to embarrass his new partner - or Mr Sarkozy, said a detective working on the case.
"'The thieves appeared to know exactly what they were looking for – taking highly intimate prints, a camera full of further images, videos, and numerous computer files,' said the source.
"They broke into Mr Enthoven’s flat in Rue Dauphine, in the sixth arrondissement, on Sunday night, smashing a window in the sitting room which looks out on to the courtyard.
"'Nobody was at home at the time, and nothing else was taken.'
"Police now fear that thieves could take advantage of Miss Bruni’s status as an international sex symbol by selling the pictures for hundreds of thousands of pounds.
They could be posted on the web so as to cause maximum embarrassment to Mr Sarkozy, who is only too well aware of his third wife’s colourful past."
If these images -- and quite possibly videos -- become public, it will be the biggest porn story since former Italian parliamentarian La Ciccolina and Jeff Koons bustup.
