Carla Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani offended by an Iranian newspaper

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy joined an international campaign that aims to save Sakineh-Ashtiani Mohammadi, an Iranian woman aged 43 years, mother of two children, sentenced to death.

Mohammadi-Ashtiani Sakineh is accused of cheating her husband and for attempting to kill him – risking the death penalty for the “crimes” she committed – and could be killed with stones in a public market.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy – the third wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy – has signed an international petition along with other VIPs, demanding the release of Mohammadi-Ashtiani Sakineh.

Last week the former supermodel said: “I just can’t see what good could come out of this macabre ceremony, whatever the judicial reasons put forward to justify it.”

Addressing Sakineh directly in an open letter, Ms Bruni-Sarkozy wrote: “Why shed your blood and deprive your children of their mother? Because you have lived, because you have loved, because you’re a woman, and because you’re an Iranian? Everything within me refuses to accept this.”

But Kayhan (which means ‘Universe’ in English), the Iranian daily newspaper which acts as a mouthpiece for the country’s ultra conservative Islamic regime, has now accused 42-year-old Ms Bruni-Sarkozy of being a hypocrite.

Entitled “French prostitutes join the human rights protest,” the article singles out Ms Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani, the French actress and friend of the First Lady who is also calling for Sakineh’s release.

Kayhan claims it supports the “ideology of the Islamic Revolution” but it’s controlled by the Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

The Iranian state television also violently attacked Carla Bruni-Sarkozy for supporting Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, saying the first lady of France is using this to try to justify her own immorality.

Elysee Palace had no official reaction to these attacks from the Iranian media, but a close friend of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy said that she is “deeply shocked” by the media attack.

Sunday, a woman wearing makeup and dressed like women sentenced to death in Iran, participated in a protest held in Paris, during which demonstrators demanded the release of Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani.

Fashion icons which revolutionized fashion industry

Classic and elegant style, has never failed revolutionizing the fashion world, created trends, current and life stories.

Audrey Hepburn is a standard of beauty and elegance, is considered one of the most beautiful women of all time, her image being used in numerous advertising campaigns.

After having taken the Oscar in 1953 for Holiday at Rome, Audrey Hepburn has become one of the most photographed women of all time.

Even today Hepburn is considered the most important fashion icon of the 20th century. It is practically impossible to talk about Audrey Hepburn style without thinking about Hubert de Givenchy in which the actress has worked for almost all her films.

Black Givenchy dress from the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s was sold in 2006 to over £ 462,000, the highest price for a dress from a film.

Brigitte Bardot sex-symbol of the ’60s has managed to transform the initials B.B. on a legend that will always evoke the beauty, the pleasure of living and freedom.
She worked first as a dummy for major Parisian fashion houses. At the age of 15 years she first appears on the cover of Elle and begins to film in 17 years.
In 1956, she triumphs in the film with premonitory title “Et Dieu créa la femme” directed by Roger Vadim. It is he the one who has launched a new image of femininity, free from the complex, direct, innocent and provocative at the same time.

Grace Kelly has all it takes to be a fashion icon.Grace Kelly created the impression that the elegant look was easy to obtain. She does not follow trends in fashion, but she adapt her style. Classic American beauty, scale model, memorable roles in great movies, a dream wedding and a marriage with a prince and a Hermes bag that bears her name. Grace had the style of a princess in her everyday life and the big screen where she made history with the costumes in The Philadelphia Story, Mogambo and To Catch a Thief.

These fashion icons implemented a dress code and elegancy among first lady, such as Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
