Bruni points

Astragal is swiftly developing an obsession with France's unofficial first lady, 40-year-old model-turned-folk singer Carla Bruni.

Bruni, a former squeeze of Donald Trump, Mick Jagger and Eric Clapton among others, has ensnared lovelorn French premier Nicolas Sarkozy in a high-profile and controversial affair, and has also inveigled her way into Astragal's heart.

But Astragal's motives are pure – he has simply spotted another building lover.

Bruni, you see, after leaving her Swiss finishing school, studied architecture in Paris 'for a short time'.

Could she become the architect of Sarkozy's downfall?
