Carla Bruni Biography

Carla Bruni was born in Turin, Italy on December 23, 1967, but is naturalized French. Bruni, age 39, is the daughter of classical composer Alberto Bruni Tedeschi and Marysa Borini, an Italian concert pianist. From the age of 5, Carla lived in France and attended boarding school in Switzerland. She went on to study art and architecture in Paris, but decided at age 19 to become a full-time model. Her brown hair, blue eyes, 5′ 9″ height and 34-24-35 measurements proved to serve her well in the industry.

While working for City Models the President and Creative Director of Guess, Paul Marciano, spotted her head shot and chose her for his Guess jeans ad campaigns. This was Carla’s first big break as she went on to work for a number of premier designers and fashion houses including Christian Dior, Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint-Laurent, Chanel, and Versace. By the 1990s, Bruni was among the 20 highest-paid fashion models, earning $7.5 million a year.

Carla Bruni is no stranger to having her love life in the tabloids. During her modeling career she dated rock stars Eric Clapton and Mick Jagger, Donald Trump, and actors Kevin Costner and Vincent Perez.

In 1997, Bruni left modeling to pursue a very successful career in music. Bruni’s discography includes Quelqu’un m’a dit and No Promises. Three songs from the album Quelqu’un m’a dit appear in the movie “Conversations with Other Women,” and the song “Le plus beau du quartier” was used in H&M’s Christmas 2006 commercial.
