French president Nicolas Sarkozy started his first official visit to the UK - the day after it was reported that an auction house is to sell Carla Bruni nude pictures.

How's that for great political timing!

Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni (now officially Carla Bruni-Sarkozy), who married in February, were greeted by the Prince of Wales and by the Duchess of Cornwall after the presidential plane landed in London Wednesday.

The French president's schedule included a full state banquet at Windsor Castle on Wednesday night, where he is staying as the guest of the queen.

On Wednesday afternoon, Sarkozy addressed both British Houses of Parliament in French and discussed many important matters of state.

But away from the politics, Nicolas Sarkozy's wife was attracting as much, if not more, attention than her husband during the two-day visit.

The famous auction house Christie's is to sell nude photographs of former model Bruni-Sarkozy, taken by Michel Comte in 1993, in New York next month.

Yes, we are talking about Carla Bruni naked, people. Check it out ...

Carla Bruni Naked

With Carla Bruni naked photos on the verge of auction, the Associated Press quoted the French president's office as saying the sale of thepics is a private matter.

Kate Moss nude and Gisele Bundchen nude photos are also nearing the same auction block, but it's Carla Bruni - the new, hot wife of the French President - who has been attracting even attention of celebrity news and mainstream media.

For its part, the UK media has covered the French president's divorce, and courtship of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, and subsequent marriage, in great depth, with several using her visit as reason to reprint images from her modeling career.

Carla Bruni may be the First Lady of France, but she's still a model at heart!

The new wife of French President Nikolas Sarkozy proves as much in a pictorial from the April edition of GQ.

The following photo may not be on the (naked) level of Maria Kanellis in Playboy, but it's more revealing than Laura Bush has been for the last seven years.

Thank goodness.

Carla Bruni Nude

Carla Bruni looks sexy in this GQ photo shoot. Call us crazy, but we doubt Michelle Obama nude pictures will pop up in a magazine any time soon.

The French may not love their new First Lady, but one of the world's leading music publications has nothing but positive things to say about Carlia Bruni.

The former supermodel, who married President Nicolas Sarkozy earlier this month, has a new album on the market. And Billboard magazine thinks it's wonderful.

No Promises

"Pure pleasure," raves the music-industry publication of Bruni's No Promises. "Less than a minute into Carla Bruni's second album, you're just like the French president: hopelessly seduced."

Wow. American Idol hopefuls such as Brooke White can only pray for that sort of praise from Simon Cowell and company.

Billboard's final summation of Bruni's latest work? "As mature as it is playful."

In her first interview since the start of her relationship with Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni has opened up about their whirlwind romance and her new status as First Lady of France with French news magazine L'Express.

"They tell me that it all was too rapid. That's not true between Nicolas and me. It didn't happen rapidly. It was immediate," Bruni said, making a confusing distinction.

While the couple appeared to get married a lot faster than it takes certain Britney Spears nude photos to sell, "for us, it even seemed slow," said Bruni. "I know you don't get married in an instant and that even more, we were in the spotlight. But lovers, you know, have their own sense of time."

We're sure Casey Aldrige and Jamie Lynn Spears can relate.

Hot First Lady alert! In her former life, Carla Bruni posed like this.

Overall, Bruni does wish to make one thing clear regarding her notoriety, saying: "I'm 40 years old, I am normal, serious, conscientious, simple, even if I come from a privileged background.

I'm honest. I'm the mother of a small boy, I write songs and I've been married to your President for two weeks. ... I'm proud and happy to be the first lady of France. I'll do my best."

Carla Bruni is the new first lady of France. This should come as no surprise to readers of The Hollywood Gossip.

As we reported would happen a couple weeks ago, the couple - who has only been dating a little over two months - wed in a civil ceremony Saturday morning in Paris.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, Nicolas Sarkozy

The French President, who divorced in October 2006, and the Italian-born Bruni were married at 11 a.m. in the Presidential Office of the Elysee Palace. It was a private civil ceremony before 30 family and friends.

Bruni signed her wedding certificate "Mrs. Carla Bruni Sarkozy." We've heard that she's pregnant, as well as in love. So don't be shocked when the next headline involving this pair is:

Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy: Expecting!

Yikes.

Carla Bruni is exposing some serious rib action in this photo of the former super model.

Of course, it's not difficult to see why. The former super model has been dating - and will be marrying, reports state - French President Nicolas Sarkozy. In other words: she's been stuck eating, or not eating, French food.

Someone send this beauty a cheeseburger...

It looks like the pregnancy bug that's bitten so many American stars - from Halle Berry to Jamie Lynn Spears to Nicole Kidman - has sailed across the ocean.

While Hillary Clinton cries over her failed presidential run, her husband is crying foul over how unfair politics can be.

Bill Clinton was forced to receive oral sex from Monica Lewinsky... while French President Nikolas Sarkozy gets to fondle Carla Bruni nude every night?

Damn those frogs.

Like another hot, new couple - Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia - Carla Bruni and Nikolas Sarkozy have taken their relationship public. This holding of hands is proof.

The French aren't always like us.

These are people that love cheese, wine, whining (about the Iraq war and so much more), hating on everything and everyone that isn't French, and so forth.

No Promises

But at least we can find common ground with France in our love of celeb gossip. Rather than shunning him, the French are all about recently-divorced President Nicolas Sarkozy and his hot romance with new girlfriend, Carla Bruni!

Carla Bruni and Nicolas Sarkozy are all smiles in Egypt.

While the reception Bill Clinton received when he cheated on his wife with Monica Lewinsky wasn't exactly warm, it hasn't kept him (or Hillary Rodham Clinton) from enjoying overwhelming popularity over the long haul, has it?

But back to France. Mixing business and pleasure in Egypt with Nicolas Sarkozy, Carla Bruni was seen strolling with one hand in the pocket of his jeans and the other on her hip. Hot! Word has it that the two will marry this year!

But whatever happens, Carla Bruni isn't ready to put down her guitar - despite her very public romance with the president. France's possible first lady of the future is set to work on a new album and embark on a tour in 2008.

Carla is halfway through recording a new album of French and Italian love songs based on her own poems," a source at Bruni's label, Naïve Records, reports. The Italian singer and model is planning an August release and concert tour.
