Model, musician and former First Lady of France, Carla Bruni shares her inspirations, musical delights and nearest and dearest with Vogue Paris for the December 2012/January 2013 double issue.
Carla Bruni: Special guest star, Vogue Paris Christmas 2012
"I first met Carla Bruni in my early 20s when she was just starting out as a model, and it has been a real pleasure to create this special Christmas issue with an old friend" writes Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, in the Editor's Letter for the December 2012/January 2013 double issue. With three major appearances in April 1995, November 2002 and August 2007, Carla Bruni is at home in the pages of Vogue Paris as she joins the elite list of special guest stars for the Christmas issue of the magazine. Captured for the cover by photography duo Mert & Marcus, Carla Bruni is joined inside the magazine by the likes of actresses Farida Khelfa and Emmanuelle Seigner and model Marpessa Hennink. They are all individuals that she respects and loves, with whom she has crossed paths in her many different lives as model, singer, actress, activist and first lady of France. In a look back to the time when she reigned supreme over the runway, the Christmas issue sees Carla Bruni reunited with three of the original supermodels whose names alone have the power to reawaken the 1990s glory days: Yasmin, Helena and Christy. And in between opening up her portfolio and her studio to Vogue Paris, Carla Bruni found space to pay homage to her native Italy with a little help from the one and only Massimo Mori, head chef at Mori Venice Bar, who has created a unique recipe for a luxe risotto, especially for Carla and the special issue.
