I haven't been able to find Vanity Fair at any Paris newsstands, but fortunately a friend scanned the Deyrolle article for me. Copyright laws being what they are, I can't include the whole article here. But if you haven't bought this month's issue for the sake of the Carla piece, please buy it for the excellent article on Deyrolle.

This month's Vanity Fair offers not only a great feature story on Premiere Dame Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, but also an in-depth article by Olga of Greece on one of my favorite Paris institutions, Deyrolle.
Hey, I think they like us!
I've written frequently about Deyrolle, which you can read here. The VF article explains the history of Deyrolle, its acquisition by the Prince de Broglie, the devastating fire last February, and the poignant subsequent offers of help from well-wishers around the globe, most notably Hermes, who designed a scarf to raise money for the reconstruction of the partially charred building. It's fascinating reading.
Gee, VF could have solicited me for photos of the burned wreckage and the sooty taxidermied animals: I witnessed it all in February. Oh well.
