Say Hello to Emmanuelle Alt

A month after Carine Roitfeld announced she would leave the editor in chief’s job at French Vogue, the magazine named Emmanuelle Alt to succeed her, starting Feb. 1.For the past ten years, Alt has worked under the current editor-in-chief, Carine Roitfeld, as the magazine's fashion director.

Emmanuelle is best k
nown for her androgynous, rock-and-roll aesthetic – her biggest inspiration is the Saturday Night Fever era. Alt has not only styled some of French Vogue's most memorable editorials, but also ad campaigns and runway shows for Balmain, Giuseppe Zanotti, Balenciaga and Isabel Marant.

Here’s what she said:
“It is such an honor for me but also a great pleasure to land at the helm of Vogue Paris, a magazine which I know very well. By working with such talented teams, I can start to work on developing the incredible potential that Vogue Paris has."

Interesting Facts:

Emmanuelle's husband, Franck Durand, is Marant's artistic director, and he is the one who hooked them up.

-She is the woman behind Michael Jackson's epic Balmain wardrobe. She is a huge fan, and sent him over samples to wear on what would've been his final tour. 

I have to say,I really love her style, I can see myself wearing all her leather leggins and all her blazers and jackets.

Thumbs Up for Mrs.Alt!!!
