From the catwalks and covers of magazines to the corridors of the Élysée Palace, Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has lived in rarefied circles.

Speaking to Tania Bryer in New York City, Bruni-Sarkozy discusses her childhood in Turin, her rise to supermodel fame and discovering the real identity of her father.

She also discusses her first meeting with her husband and former French President Nicolas Sarkozy, and what made her marry him three months after their initial encounter.
