Carla Bruni-Sarkozy To Appear At Paris Couture Week

Former model Carla Bruni-Sarkozy is not finished with the fashion industry yet.

From WWD:

Although France's glamorous First Lady has yet to attend any high fashion shows, she's confirmed as special guest and sponsor at the annual Sidaction benefit gala at the close of the week on Jan. 29. Bruni-Sarkozy, whose brother died of AIDS in 2006, has been active in fighting the disease for the last few years, and she officially confirmed her engagement as the Global Fund to Fight AIDS ambassador last month.
