Emmanuelle Alt by Tommy Ton
All is well that ends well; Vogue Paris chooses Carine’s second in command to be her successor – Emmanuelle Alt is set to take over on February 1st. Industry insiders wait with baited breathe to see what she’ll bring to the magazine and of course everyone has an opinion.
“Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out,” the designer said. “I personally like her. She’s a handsome French woman. She has a style, but is it enough to make a whole magazine?”
“She has an innate sense of chic and has a very clear vision of who the Paris Vogue woman is. The shoots we have done with Emmanuelle are always just like her: superfun, supercool and superfashion,” van Lamsweerde and Matadin said in an e-mail.
“Emmanuelle is one of the most talented editors. I love working with her,”
“It’s a very logical continuation for French Vogue. She’s really somebody who’s going to make it. She has a point of view, a lot of vision. I remember when she was editor in chief of Mixte she did some amazing stories. She worked a lot with Corinne Day at the time. She’s French, but she’s extremely international as well.” | WWD
