Naomi Campbell praises French president

London\: Naomi Campbell has praised French President Nicolas Sarkozy because he treats her friend and his wife Carla Bruni-Sarkozy like a princess.

"I love the way President Sarkozy speaks about Carla. It`s wonderful to see someone speak about his wife with such love, admiration and pride," quoted her as saying.

The British beauty befriended Bruni-Sarkozy in the late 1980s when they were both making their names in the fashion industry. Campbell has remained in touch with Carla since she wed Sarkozy in 2008.

"I`ve always loved Carla. She`s an amazing woman. She has always been a great friend to me - and a great confidante. She`s always had this elegance about her, as far back as I can remember. We travel a lot, so we don`t get a chance to see each other that often, but we do try to stay in touch whenever possible," she said.
