Forget whether or not they will be able to sleep in the same bedroom on the State visit to Buckingham Palace, or whether or not it was a shotgun wedding, or how seemly having a pop music room at the Elysée really is. What I want to know is: if Nicolas Sarkozy did wed Carla Bruni last week, as rumour has it, what did she wear?
This is no flippant question: if the nuptials actually happened, they have the potential to be one of the most predecedent-setting state weddings of the decade. For while the daughters of heads of state get married all the time, sitting presidents and, even more so, recently divorced newly elected sitting presidents, are a whole different story.Note:Various legends trace coq au vin to ancient Gaul and Julius Caesar, but the food is not documented until the early 20th century, though it no doubt existed as a rustic country dish long before that.
