I'll openly admit that I have a girl-crush on Carla Bruni. The beautiful model/singer/First Lady of France is a bona fide style icon of our time. Although you might not be able to recreate the sound of her luscious voice (I dare you to listen to "L'amour" from her Quelqu€™un M€™a Dit album, and not be totally envious), you can recreate some of her style secrets. Whether it's a classic black dress and tasteful diamond necklace, a chic working girl grey suit with a bright coat, or a belted overcoat for an outdoor public appearance, Bruni always looks stunning, appropriate and stylish. Think classic, flattering shapes, mixing neutrals with brights, and accessories that enhance an outfit as a whole, without making a statement of their own. Basically, think like your inner First Lady! Check out my SLIDESHOW for a few pieces to Carla Bruni-ze your wardrobe.
