Carla Bruni goes down in a flash

Her website, that is

Security for virtualized datacentres

Nick Sarko's squeeze Carla Bruni yesterday proved she's something of an attraction by launching a website, which promptly collapsed under the sheer weight of admirers stampeding down to carlabrunisarkozy.org.

As the Times notes, the site is largely dedicated to punting Bruni-Sarko's good works, including her role as "ambassador for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria".

It's also keen to present her feminist credentials. One pal explains in her potted biog: “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."

Julien Civange, a music composer and producer who's responsible for the site, explained: “We want to inform the general public of the causes which motivate Carla Bruni-Sarkozy by bringing together in the same space all the information about her activities. The accent is on the causes she defends rather than on herself.”

None of this will do her shortarse other half any harm. The Times adds that Ms Bruni has done Sarko a great service in softening his image as a hard man of the right, even if photos of the two together underline his serious shortcomings in the height department. ®

As you can see, the site's available in both French and English - something which is likely to have linguistic traditionalists on the other side of La Manche choking on their pops de cacao.
