Paris - (Sacre Bleu!): Haute couture twitterati are gobsmacked: is a notorious Parisian catwalk hex to blame for the sudden death of supermodel Daul Kim?
Gendarmerie sources remain stoically sphinx-like.
But the 20 year-old South Korean stunner's mystery death has sent shockwaves through the Rive Gauche rag trade industry.
"Absolutely no connection to 'unexplained' deaths like supermodel Katoucha Niane, Spiderman-3 actress Lucy Gordon, or Kinga Legg etc," French modelling agency sources commented.
And rien ne va plus on speculation about any involvement by former catwalk queen turned First Lady of France Carla Bruni, either.
A spokesman for President Sarkozy, however, reminded reporters today that France's first couple had successfully seen off all previous attempts at ludicrous innuendo.
"Hahaha, we blame foreign rubbish like zees!"
