Carla Bruni

Carla Bruni, our favorite presidential paramour, is making headlines for appearing in the Spanish men’s magazine DT clothed only in a wedding ring. (The full pic is here.) Does this confirm rumors that she’s tied the knot with the well-attired fiscal conservative? Probably not, since the pictures in question could have been taken as early as August, and are certainly from before the couple went public in December. All we can say for sure is that for a 40-year-old woman, she certainly keeps in shape.

The couple’s whirlwind romance (with accompanying media waltz) is now entering its sixth week, and the couple has trekked across three continents so far, besting Egyptian prejudice, domestic skepticism and, worst of all, EuroDisney. Bruni has described the media attention as “a hurricane of madness,” although we like to think of it as more of a cyclone of curiosity.
