Female Politicians Earn Place in Fashion World

Female Politicians Earn Place in Fashion World

They say clothes make the man, but when it comes to politics, the only real "power dressers" are the women of that world: first ladies and female politicians. Think about it. We're constantly gossiping about what first lady Michelle Obama is wearing, but we seldom explore -- or even care about -- President Barack Obama's fashion choices. Unless, of course, he's frolicking topless on a beach. According to Robb Young, author of the new book "Power Dressing: First Ladies, Women Politicians & Fashion," this occurs because the feminine wardrobe is far more varied, vibrant and memorable than anyth...

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy Denies She Said Michelle Obama Called Life 'Hell' as First Lady

The French Embassy in Washington is denying a report in a new book that French First Lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy claimed Michelle Obama said her life was "hell" since her husband won the presidency. Bruni-Sarkozy "distances herself completely from the content of the book 'Carla and the Ambitious,' which was not authorized and the authors alone are responsible for its contents. The words attributed to the First Lady of the United States were never said," Emmanuel Lenain, a spokesman for the embassy, said in a statement issued Thursday. Mrs. Obama spokesman Catherine McCormick-Lelyveld told Pol...

Carla Bruni Tell-All: Another Run-of-the-Mill French Sex Scandal?

(SEPT. 2) -- By some accounts, Carla Bruni is having a bad week. The state-run Iranian paper that called France's first lady a "prostitute" last week clarified on Tuesday that it did in fact mean "prostitute" when it wrote "prostitute." Then on Wednesday, British newspapers reported that French publisher Flammarion was set to release a scandalous tell-all on Bruni's life, from "secret lovers to plastic surgeons." Bruni's lawyers told The Telegraph of London that they were "bracing themselves" for the book, set to release this month, which apparently includes new details on the already repo...

Iran Calls French First Lady 'Prostitute' Over Stoning Issue

(Aug. 30) -- Iranian state media branded French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy a "prostitute" for her public support of an Iranian woman sentenced to death for adultery -- and activists worry the convicted woman may still be stoned. The attack on the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy shows the Iranian government's continued "defiance" of international pressure on the issue, activists said today. The government-controlled newspaper Kayhan denounced Bruni-Sarkozy and actress Isabelle Adjani in an editorial headlined "French Prostitutes Join Human Rights Protest." The piece called Brun...

Carla Bruni Shocked Michelle Obama with Sex Talk, Says New Book

French first lady Carla Bruni shocked Michelle Obama by trying to compare notes on their sex lives, Jonathan Alter reports in "The Promise: President Obama, Year One." Bruni, the Italian wife of French President Nicholas Sarkozy, "delighted in telling friends that she shocked Michelle Obama at their first meeting" by informing her that "the press of state business prevented her husband from making love to her as much as she would like," Alter writes. He also says of Bruni that "in her telling, they once kept another foreign leader waiting while they finished having sex. Bruni wanted to know ...
