A passion for food + fashion

Music and Fashion Were Always the Passion

Yesterday my friend Missy, who has a radio show on Indie 103, was talking about new music, a dialogue to which I have very little to contribute. But it reminded me of a relatively newish musical guilty pleasure—Carla Bruni. And you know what? Viva la France for having her as their First Lady. She gets my vote for the most chic First Lady, followed by Michelle Obama and Queen Rania of Jordan. Last summer my dad was obsessed with Bruni’s 2008 album, Comme Si de Rien N’Etait, which he thinks is the perfect background music while you cook. Frankly, I think he was obsessed with the liner notes, but the music is really good, too. And he’s right—it’s great to have on in the background while you are stirring a risotto, or some such. I am also loving her album Quelqu’un M’a Dit from 2003. Her voice (and her look) reminds me of two of my all-time favorite style icons and  yé-yé girls… Françoise Hardy and Jane Birkin. Each deserves her own post, coming soon…

  1. Carla Bruni is always on my cooking mix (and party mix, and driving mix, and walking mix)… okay I guess I love Carla Bruni!
