Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni Tedeschi, is a model and an artist. Heiress of a tire manufacturing fortune from her native city, she didn't even need to pursue her model career which nontheless has led her to be one of the 20 highest-paid models in 1998.

Since the age of five she grew up in France and later attended a boarding school in Switzerland. She eventually returned to Paris where she dropped her classes at the age of 19 to be a full-time model.

She became famous as an international model but she also became a tabloid staple by dating famous rock stars as Mick Jagger, Eric Clapton, tycoon Donald Trump and actors Kevin Costner and Vincent Perez.

In 1998 she left the world of fashion.

Bruni since devoted herself to chanson and in the year 2002 her debut album Quelqu'un M'a Dit was released, making her famous in Europe. Most listeners agree: Bruni is certainly not the best trained scale-crackling singer around the globe but she is well known and loved for her breathy and at times acrobatic voice, which fits just perfectly into the chanson genre.
