Someone gets to take home France's first lady -- in the nude. But the honor is costing more than 90 grand. A nude photo of Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has sold at a New York auction for $91,000. Officials of Christie's auction house say that's about 30 times the pre-auction estimate.

It was sold to a collector who doesn't want to be named.

The photo was taken by a professional photographer in 1993, when Carla Bruni-Sarkozy was one of the world's most sought-after models.
