We have seen it fit perfectly into the institutional role of French Premiere Dame. We saw her pick up the guitar and go to the press discs successfull. We have seen it on the red carpets of the most important festivals around the world. But on the catwalks of fashion shows – that is, where her legend was born – we hadn’t seen her for quite a while. Except for the legendary appearance, in 2017, on the catwalk of Versace together with the equally iconic colleagues of the 90s, in a painting that pays homage to the genius of the great Gianni.
But the only and inimitable Carla Bruni in these days has returned to tread an important Parisian prêt-à-porter catwalk: that of Balmain. In a richly embroidered minidress, Bruni was admired on the catwalk set up in the large concert hall of La Seine musical, to celebrate the first 10 years of Olivier Rousteing to the creative direction of the brand.
A sort of parade best of of the designer’s style, which was also attended by other stars of the top model firmament, in which the creative re-proposed some of what he himself defined as his favorite looks of his years at the direction of the Maison: Naomi Campbell opens the grand finale , followed by Nadege, Natasha Poly, Mariacarla Boscono and a newfound Milla Jovovic, now an actress of proven success, who just as a model had made her debut a few decades ago.
Could this be the beginning of a new, yet another, life of Carla Bruni? We doubt: she doesn’t really seem like a woman who likes heated soups. Not even the deluxe ones.
