Last night at the The Royalton Hotel in Midtown West, Carla Bruni regaled listeners with music from her new album, Little French Songs (released in April on Verve), as part of the New York Observer’s salon series, curated by Absolut ELYX.

A star-studded crew came out to see the former First Lady of France as she strummed out tunes from her fourth studio CD, featuring French, English and Italian lyrics and a follow-up to Comme si de rien n’était, recorded in 2008.

The event marked the first time the French-Italian chanteuse has played her new tunes in the United States, and party-goers—including fashion photographer Craig McDean, painter Richard Phillips and TV journalist Christiane Amanpour—were eager to hear the music live.
