Karl Lagerfeld is the latest to enlist his fashionable touch to the Carla-Sarkozy Foundation and as such, has created a princess doll priced at 220 euros (315$) and a silk, tulle and lace princess dress for a child girl at the hefty price of 830 euros (1190$). These items were created with Paris’ high-end toy store Au Nain Bleu in mind.
Think of it this way. It’s all for a good cause. The foundation aims to incorporate culture, encourage education and fight against social inequality. We aren’t made of money but if we were, a little doll would be in our possession right now all for the cause.
Have you made a contribution out of your good will to those less-fortunate this Christmas?

Click here to watch the interview (if you can speak French! If not, read below!)
This month’s Harry Roselmack [the caramel FOX at the beginning] interview for Sept à Huit (a show that probably takes place, just guessing now from 7 to 8) took place at the lovely First Lady of France, Carla Bruni’s Parisienne home.
It seems the French have very mixed reviews about their First Lady as according to a recent poll, 51% voted she wasn’t close enough to the people. However she defends herself by saying, ”I feel close to the French people but maybe they don’t feel close to me”. She continues, ”The French woman is a woman of tradition and elegance. They see this image as far from what I am”. This is the reason for which she had started to pay attention to her image and why the elegant, done-up woman is who we see today.
She also talks about her determination behind her world mission against AIDS. Her motivation comes not from her brother who died in 2006 she says but women and children.
Finally she gets onto to talking about the romantical life she leads with Sarkozy ”We are here most of the time (the apartment). Our personal life is very calm and very peaceful. He showed me another point of view. Today, I am better with him than without him. I never imagined that in my youth.” Ahh the real vie en rose
As for whether her husband will run in the 2012 election? ”It will be my husband’s choice. I have no influence on political choices made. If he doesn’t run, we will be peaceful, quiet [but] we don’t discuss it, it’s his business. But as a wife, in intimacy, one mandate will have been enough for me”.
We don’t understand why the French don’t like her. Tell us! We want to know!
