Time to tack on another label to Carla Bruni-Sarkozy's model/kinda-sorta-maybe Woody Allen leading lady/musician/French First Lady job title: Web mistress.

The gorgeous wife of French president Nicolas Sarkozy just launched a Website,, to promote her accomplishments and charitable initiatives, and, more importantly, spill some dirt. (No wonder the site crashed within hours of launching after an influx of traffic, as The Daily Mail reports.)

Along with an eye roll-worthy bio that includes the quote "'she may not have been a suffragette or invented the miniskirt, but she is the very epitome of the modern woman in the way she approaches the world,' notes one of her closest friends." (We bet!)

The site includes a random but surprisingly forthcoming A-Z guide to Bruni's life that runs the gamut from director David Lynch to Christian Dior to World AIDS Day, and the controversy surrounding her nude image on Pardon bags last year.

Under the Madrid entry comes this choice line, in reference to a state visit this past April: "As with Michelle Obama, it is a beauty contest between Princess Letizia [above right], a former star journalist, and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, ex-top model. From their Louboutin shoes to their Azzedine Alaïa dresses, the essentials are all there."

Don't get any ideas, Carla. You may have the singing/guitar playing/modeling thing down, but we'd put good money on our Mrs. O's bicep curls trumping you in the talent portion.

Can't get enough Carla Bruni? We've got a lot more of the French First Lady's style on tap.
