Carla Bruni, the First Lady of France, smashed estimates on the selling price of a nude photo taken in 1993. The photo taken by a little known photographer made international headlines last month when it was about to go on sale and helped send the bidding to soaring levels.

Comte’s photo “Carla Bruni, 1993” smashed the pre-auction estimate of $3000-$4000 by fetching a $75,000 hammer price – $91,000 including buyer’s premium.

“It’s an outstanding image, it’s a wonderful artist, it’s a new world record for his work and that always makes us happy,” Josh Holdeman, international head of the photograph department at Christie’s said after the sale.
