Carla Bruni convinced her husband, French president Nicolas Sarkozy, to stop wearing his expensive watches, helping him shed his "bling-bling" image. But the title is coming back as French people stew while they watch the First Couple vacation in Mexico in a $4,800-a-night private luxury villa. Ironically, Sarko was in town to discuss the global economic crisis with Mexican president Felipe Calderón. Unemployment rates are soaring abroad as well as here. Carla also attended dinner last night in flashy diamond chandelier earrings and a diamond necklace. So they never took issue with her Dior suits and ballgowns, but now they're freaking out.
