The United States may have a fashion icon in the making in their White House, but France’s First Lady is a former model. (We can’t imagine why the French have a reputation for being so glamorous!) Carla Bruni, the Italian-born, French-raised fashionista is seen here in a bright purple Dior coat. She wore it during a 2008 diplomatic meeting with then-British First Lady, Sarah Brown. We were inspired by our sophisticated friend, Danielle, who was sporting a similarly chic look this weekend. Although, we didn’t get to take a picture of her, so Carla had to fill in instead! This shade is particularly flattering on brunettes, and since both of the stylish women are half-Italian, it’s no wonder they both look so beautiful in violet. Their eye-catching outerwear is reminiscent of a crocus in bloom – seeing this pop of purple in March (in the garden, or the streets of Manhattan) is the first sign that winter is leaving us. Au revoir snowy weather!
