Paris (AP) France's first lady is taking legal action to stop a clothing company from distributing bags bearing a nude black-and-white image of her.
Her attorney says Carla Bruni-Sarkozy has exclusive ownership rights to her image. She is seeking euro125,000 ($165,200) in damages from clothing vendor pardon.
The firm is based on the French Indian Ocean Island of La Reunion.
The first lady's lawyer, Thierry Herzog, said Friday that a La Reunion court will hear the case Monday and that she will donate any damages to charity.
Pardon has been giving the bags to its clients. The nude photo of Bruni-Sarkozy was taken in 1993 when she was a model.
