Carla Bruni compliments Sam's style

As we reported, the two ladies met to commemorate General Charles de Gaulle's 1940 radio broadcast to Nazi-occupied France.

Carla then published her impressions on Sam:

She wrote: "The companion of the new UK head of government is a kind of fashion icon: until now artistic director of the luxury paper company Smythson, Samantha Cameron combines stylishness with a feel for her time.

"Aristocratic but bohemian, practitioner of yoga and close to the ecological cause, this mother of three has retained from her youth a dolphin tattoo.

"A maverick style for a woman who, when questioned about her husband, does not hesitate to speak not only of his good qualities but also of the minor failings of everyday life."

Sam unveils David Cameron's wax figure

Anniversary of the appel du general Charles de Gaulle

On the 70th anniversary of the appel du general Charles de Gaulle, Nicolas and Carla travelled to London, where the appel took place from the BBC Head offices.

Charles de Gaulle's words that day - exactly 70 years ago on June 18, 1940 - called on the French never to abandon the struggle against the Nazi invaders. 'The flame of French resistance must not and will not be extinguished,' he thundered.

Today, French President Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife Carla visited the BBC to celebrate the event. They will meet Prince Charles, pay homage to De Gaulle's statue in West London, and lunch with David Cameron at Number 10. The Sarkozy's also met Prince Charles.

This was the ocassion of our two stylish and admirable ladies meeting for the first time, Carla Bruni Sarkozy and Samantha Cameron. They accompained their husbands to several events with veterans to mark World War 2. The ladies looked perfect: Carla chose a simple gray shift dress by Dior with peep-toe pumps by Louboutin and a black purse while Samantha went for a black and white ensemble by Emilia Wickstead that highlighted her pregnancy. This is Samantha's first official event.

Judging from the pictures, it seems that the two ladies got on really well together. Carla even flicked a fly from Samantha's dress! We are looking forward to seeing them again working together!
