Former Mrs Sarkozy to wed event planner in New York

The Versace fashion house said that French President Nicolas Sarkozy’s ex-wife will wed event planner Richard Attias this month in a Versace gown.

Cecilia Ciganer-Albeniz and Attias “have chosen to wear Versace for the happy occasion of their wedding, which will take place in New York later this month,” the company said in an e-mailed statement yesterday.

Versace said the former French first lady would wear an Atelier Versace dress and Attias a classic Versace two-button tailored suit.

“All of the immediate wedding party has also chosen to wear Versace,” the company said.

Cristina Colli, a Versace spokeswoman in Milan, said she could not provide a date or location for the wedding. The French magazine Point de Vue reported on Wednesday that the marriage would take place on March 22.

A call to Attias was not immediately returned. Ciganer-Albeniz left Sarkozy, the then-presidential hopeful, in May 2005 to live with Moroccan-born Attias, but returned to Sarkozy’s side in the run-up to the French vote in May of last year. Ciganer-Albeniz and Sarkozy divorced in October, and he married Italian-born model-turned-singer Carla Bruni on Feb 2.

Bruni’s previous romantic liaisons included Donald Trump and Mick Jagger.
