Au Revoir to France's glam first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

And her colourful past and free-spirited demeanour brought fresh interest to politics.

As the country bids au revoir to her husband – who lost out in the elections to Francois Hollande – we look at that the time of the 'super'-turned-guitar strumming troubadour who gave the Elysee Palace an air of unparalleled glamour and drama.
