When French President Nicolas Sarkozy wed Carla Bruni in Paris on Saturday, there was little fanfare, but plenty of fashion elements. The bride, a pop singer and former model, wore a short, sleeveless, off-white dress by Hermes, according to sources, and witnesses for the nuptials included Mathilde Agostinelli, Prada’s European PR, and Farida Khelfa, the former model, couture directrice at Jean-Paul Gaultier and Paris social figure.
