2008 was quite a year for Carla Bruni. The former model turned pop singer became France’s First Lady at the start of the year and wore a Hermès dress for the occasion. She spent the rest of the year alternating between Hermès and Dior, with creations by Jean-Paul Gaultier and John Galliano respectively.

She was particularly outstanding in this Gaultier-designed gown that she wore to a dinner held to welcome Israeli President Shimon Peres to Paris. In purple, one of the winter’s key colors, and with an asymmetric shoulder strap, this beautiful long dress isn’t too dissimilar to an Indian sari. The flat sandals add a chic, folk touch.

Question 10/15 :

A suitable choice of dress for Carla?
 •  Yes, she looks fabulous in it.
 •  No, I don't really like the conventional look of this dress on Carla.
