LETTER: Carla may change our view of the French ..

The British attitude towards the French is much too deep-rooted for one heavily publicised state visit to change it (News, 4 April).

After all, we already know that the French are a stylish bunch. All the same, it is probably the start of a fascination with Carla Bruni and the glamorous couple that will catch our attention over the coming years, so it will be interesting to see what effect it has on our opinions of the French over time.

If the marriage and Sarkozy's presidency lasts, Carla will become an icon. For the short term, however, don't be surprised to see lots more front pages of Carla.
