Alt. Viewpoints

After months of waiting Emmanuelle Alt‘s first issue as editor in chief of Vogue Paris is finally on newsstands. With a focus on simple fashion and showcasing the beauty of the clothes, the content seems destined to be a far cry from the audacious stories pioneered by Carine Roitfeld. Take a glimpse at this preview of editorials from the new edition and tell us what you think about Alt’s new vision for Vogue.

  1. Well, VP will become even more boring now. Daria, Raquel, Isabeli, Kate, Gisele, Malgosia every month in Balmain and Marant….

    Thank god she loves Natasha and Iselin too.
    But I want new models!

  2. Please…. This is what fashion is becoming: politically correct. Emmanuelle is just afraid after all this puritan inquisition from the big bosses of big fashion brands. She use to be more edgy in the stories she styled herself for french Vogue when Carine use to be there and this was not because of Carine! It was her way of seeing things, remember shoots she did with Inez or Terry R, it was by far more rock’n’roll than what we are seeing here!!!
    And to my point of view, Carine is genius and will always be. Emmanuelle is great but she misses that genius touch (+charisma+sense of humor) that a future legend like Carine has.
    And save fashion from the industry! Readers, we have the power at the end!

  3. Note to everyone: I added a preview of Snejana’s story to the post, as the lovely Diorette was kind enough to scan it. I’ve always enjoyed the VP Bijoux editorials and this is no exception!

  4. Snejana looks gorgeous indeed! Hope we will see other surprising models in VP… but like i said, i doubt it.

  5. These are all great! Great to see Snejana! I especially love that second picture of Sasha – so interesting!

  6. I like it, a lot
    its clean and some thing new for frech vogue.
    I wonder if she likes models of color 🙂

  7. I love it. There is something different in the air. Its like a quite revolution. I love another photo from Gisele where she is lay down on a rock a beach. Très jolie.

  8. I’m so confused…. It’s good but there’s too much going on. The green tongue too much Dazed & Confused for me, Gisele’s editorial felt Elle for me. But it’s good to see that an editorial as clean as Malgosia’s could be so beautiful. Iguess only tiem will tell but so far is good.

  9. Good try, Alt but it’s proven that Carine’s shoes are hard to fill and not easy to wear… As I’ve mentioned before when Gisele’s cover was released… She doesn’t seem very directional and the editorials are looking very mediocre. I’m really disappointed… From what I see here, only Sasha’s editorial seems to have worked for me… I mean, it’s Vogue Paris – NOT Vogue US. Let’s leave the lifestyle-ish stories to Anna, and we need more NON-CHALANCE & SEX (I mean I’m even to the point of doubting Alt’s styling skill… If the stories don’t work, at least her styling should sparkle)!!! I used to save the images of editorials for future references, but from what I see here, I guess i can save some memory space for some other publications.

  10. I’m not sure with this to be honest. Of course its appealing and looks nice but so do many other fashion magazines out there. What Carine did at Vogue Paris was differentiate the publication and really give it its own style. I’m not sure that this new direction is that groundbreaking. Lets not forget that apart from a few controversial issues, Carine left us with a legacy of brilliant editorial work.

  11. FV looks very boring and safe. I think Ms Alt should mix it up a bit, put some Edge to it, use some younger photographers with a different point of view. As much as we love the old ones, is the point of fashion not to evolve and nurture and source whats different??

  12. i think there’s a bit for everyone but overall look is very fresh, a bit dated in a way it’s not bringing anything contemporarily daring but hey that’s Vogue… i just hope it evolves along the way as the clean and girly aesthetics can get very boring after while.

  13. I understand that she is trying to steer clear of Carine’s VP, but you can still be provocative without naked models on every other page. To me, this is just clothes, and thats it. If I want to just look at clothes, I would buy Marie Claire of Instyle. Vogue’s eds are supposed to tell stories, and I hope she does that in the future.

  14. Ok, Ok – I love love Vogue Paris, but I like this. I was getting kind of tired of all of the brain-bashing that the old Vogue Paris had, and think that a little more relaxed, softer, cooler atmosphere will be a refreshing change. So what if it’s not weird and willy and witty? It can get distracting after a while and sometimes I’d just like to see a heartbreakingly beautiful picture that focuses on the clothes.

  15. BRING BRACK SNEJANA!.

  16. Hmm….It is just ok to me. Yes, Carnie’s work is brilliant, for sure!

    But, just give Emmanuelle Alt some time to grow as editor for VP. Hopefully, she will not make me snooze through eds! 🙁

  17. Carine Roitfeld can’t be replaced, of course.
    We shall give Emmanuelle Alt more time as this is her first issue.

    Those photos are like from old magazine expecially Sasha’s.

    Snejana has a stunnig face and she needs to get a beauty contract. Loreal, please!!!!
