Carla Bruni Dazzles At State Dinner (PHOTOS)

On Tuesday night, France's first couple welcomed Russian President Dmitry Medvedev and his wife Svetlana to a state dinner held in their honor at Elysee Palace.

Carla Bruni looked breathtakingly beautiful in a long emerald gown with a slit up the front. Her hair was pulled back in loose curls, but thankfully, not in the Sarah Palin way.
