Carla Bruni Praises Samantha Cameron's 'Maverick Style,' Dolphin Tattoo

Posted: Updated:

French First Lady Carla Bruni and the wife of UK's Prime Minister, Samantha Cameron, finally met in London earlier this month and Bruni took to her website to compose a short bio about Sam Cam, that some British tabloids have called "Sarkasm" and full of "back-handed compliments." Bruni wrote:

The companion of the new UK head of government is a kind of fashion icon: until now artistic director of the luxury paper company Smythson, Samantha Cameron combines stylishness with a feel for her time. Aristocratic but bohemian, practitioner of yoga and close to the ecological cause, this mother of three (she lost one of her children last year at the age of 6), has retained from her youth (art studies in Bristol) a dolphin tattoo. A maverick style for a woman who, when questioned about her husband, does not hesitate to speak not only of his good qualities but also of the minor failings of everyday life. A husband who doesn't pick up his clothes or clean up the kitchen after cooking and who zaps to find the next Western: fairly ordinary failings, after all, in an exceptional man - this descendant of William IV is the youngest UK Prime Minister since 1812.

Perhaps we live in a fantasy world in which all first ladies are BFFs, but we don't see anything "back-handed" about Carla's post. What do you think?
