Tawny Brown: Sarkozy Dates Carla Bruni

sarkobruni117.jpgFRENCH President Sarkozy is romancing supermodel-turned-pop singer Carla Bruni, just two months after his divorce.

To add a dash of reality to this story, the newswires state that Sarkozy and Bruni were “photographed together at the Disneyland theme park near Paris”.

Politics has long been talked about as showbusiness for ugly people. But that is now revealed to be a British saying, as the small but neatly formed Sarkozy and the taller leggy Bruni step out.

We confess to an ignorance of how they do things in France, but if this were the UK and Gordon Brown were dating Caprice the tabloids would show some interest.

Would the politician take to lounging on exotic beaches, using his clothes as an expression of his greater self and reveal the ‘real’ him in a magazine interview? And would the model attempt to be all things – mother, vixen and homemaker – a kind of superwomn?

And would we hanker for the more innocent, less showy days of Tony and Cherie Blair?
