Carla Bruni's Bulgari Gowns Make Us Miss Her First Lady Days (PHOTOS)

Carla Bruni's back... in gowns.

Ever since her tenure as France's first lady ended last year, we've been lacking in the glam Carla department. Sure, we've seen her gallivanting around Paris in boho jeans and fedoras (and we even caught a sight of toddler Giulia). But those ritzy formal get-ups we had come to love? Zilch. Even Carla had to admit that she missed the fun of elegant dressing.

Luckily, the singer is getting back to public life, which includes making appearances as the face of Bulgari. Last Thursday, Carla hit up the presentation of the brand's haute joaillerie Diva Collection in Italy, donning not one, but two floor-length gowns. Oh, and she was dripping with Bulgari jewels, natch.

Carla shot her Bulgari campaign in Rome with Terry Richardson back in March, so we hope to catch a glimpse of the polished shots soon. In the meantime, check out the model's double dose of luxe below.
