Washington, Mar 26 : Naked portraits of Sir Mick Jagger and French President Nicolas Sarkozy's new wife Carla Bruni are set to go under the hammer at Christie's in New York in April (08).
The black and white picture of Bruni, taken by Michael Comte 15 years ago, is expected to fetch 2,000 dollars when it goes on sale on 10 April.
However, Bruni is reportedly not very pleased with the timing of the announcement.
She is said to be fuming because the auction house Christie's announced the sale of her photo on the eve when she would be with Sarkozy for a state visit to Britain.
Sarkozy married Bruni in February after a whirlwind romance that began shortly after his divorce from his second wife Cecilia.
