Carla Bruni has admitted she “wouldn’t feel comfortable” wearing miniskirts at her age.
The French-Italian star began modelling back in 1987, and in a new interview, insisted that while her style hasn’t changed over the years, she’s made a conscious decision to dress how she thinks is appropriate.
“I’ve always dressed quite simply, but there are some things I wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing at my age, like miniskirts for example,” she told The Telegraph newspaper.
Bruni takes fashion inspiration from Patti Smith and French singer Francoise Hardy, and has a chic tailored look that she wears on a daily basis.
“Fashion is all about exchanging (ideas) with other people. I hardly ever wear a dress in my regular life. A nice pair of jeans with a fitted jacket and a good pair of flat boots is my daily uniform,” the 51-year-old shared.
The former First Lady of France recently made her debut in Riccardo Tisci’s festive Burberry campaign, which was shot by photography duo Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
And Bruni confessed she didn’t hesitate to accept the offer of becoming a brand ambassador for the British heritage label.
“I’ve admired Riccardo’s work for a very long time and I love Mert and Marcus, so I was thrilled, said yes and didn’t ask any questions. The next thing I knew, I was on a train to London,” she recalled.
Bruni appears in the images alongside fellow models Cecilia Chancellor, Fran Summers, Ikram Abdi Omar, singer Mahmood and footballer Ruben Loftus-Cheek, and was honoured to be chosen by the Italian designer.
“Riccardo has a perfect technique and a great sense of modernity, he really knows how to use the past to reinvent the future,” the mother-of-two gushed.

Punk poet Patti Smith is reportedly the face of Saint Laurent’s spring 2020 campaign.
The French fashion house’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello has selected the 72-year-old rocker to front the imagery, according to editors at Page Six Style, with photographer Steven Sebring to helm the photoshoot in New York City later this month.
Sebring has a special relationship with Smith, as he first photographed her in 1995 for Spin magazine and directed 2008 documentary, Patti Smith: Dream of Life.
And the Because the Night hitmaker isn’t the first musician to land an ad campaign for the luxury label. Under previous creative director Hedi Slimane, stars including Courtney Love, Marilyn Manson, Daft Punk, and Joni Mitchell modelled in Saint Laurent ads.
While back in April, Vaccarello announced that he had chosen Keanu Reeves to star in the fall 2019 menswear campaign.
The three black-and-white shots, captured by fashion photographer David Sims, depict the 55-year-old wearing a black leather aviator jacket with a shearling collar, a pinstripe suit and aviator sunglasses, as well as a classic motorcycle jacket.
Meanwhile, Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard was named as the face of the fall/winter 2019 campaign in May.
The 16-year-old appears in another slick photoshoot by Sims, where he poses in a skinny two-piece suit styled with high-shine leather boots.
In another image, the young actor, who plays Mike Wheeler in the hit Netflix series, is seen wearing a striped shirt with a tie, leather jacket, and sunglasses.
