Carla Bruni Outdresses Everyone at a Classy French Fashion Party

Nice knowing the half of you in the back there.

Last night in Paris, Carla Bruni attended her first fashion event since becoming First Lady of France, the Sidaction AIDS benefit. Though she’s shown a penchant for Dior since marrying Sarko, she stepped out in a different French label last night — Yves Saint Laurent — sticking to the rich purple hue she so loves. She also looks to have curled her hair a bit, which she rarely bothers with. Diane Kruger, Vanessa Paradis, and Mischa Barton were among the attendees of this Über-classy French soirée. Did their outfits measure up to Carla’s? We assess in the slideshow, obnoxious unnecessary use of French kept to an absolute minimum.
