Carla Bruni attacked as new Marie Antoinette of France by magazine

Breaking News

Carla Bruni has been condemned as the new Marie Antoinette of France by the country's leading society magazine.

Point de Vue presents the 41-year-old wife of President Nicolas Sarkozy as a daffy multi-millionaire socialite who does very little real work and is completely out of touch with ordinary people.

The attack by the Paris weekly, which specialises in covering the lives of aristocrats and European royalty, will come as a huge blow to Mr Sarkozy as he fights to deflect accusations of a monarchical style.

While Marie Antoinette relied on court artist Elisabeth Vigee-Le Brun for her flattering portraits, Miss Bruni gets hers done by American photographer Annie Lebovitz, who charges thousands of dollars a picture.
