Net Worth: $15 Million
Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is one of the world’s most photographed and most financially successful first lady in the world.
Carla is what we call one helluva fashionable first lady. Since she got married to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has made waves over what she does –and doesn’t– wear.The Italo-French songwriter, singer, and former model sued a fashion chain for nearly $170,000 for printing a nude image of her on tote bags.
She’s hottest political woman in the world,beautiful-bionic, serial heart-wrecker, rocker arm candy, arrogant heiress, polling gimmick — the first lady of France has been called all this and more.
Also, she is the first First Lady to have nude pictures posted on the Internet,she boasts in one of her songs of having “30 lovers.” She was, of course, exaggerating she later explained; she’s only had 15.
After she aged out of her career as one of the most highly paid models of the 1990s, with campaigns for Dior and Chanel and some 250 magazine covers to her credit, she became a musician.
Her last full year as a model, she made $7.5 million in 1998, according to BusinessAge magazine. It’s a hefty sum, but money is the least of her worries. As the heiress to a Turin-based manufacturing fortune, she should have a Jaguar parked in her driveway for the rest of her life.
