biography

Nationality: France
Emmanuelle Alt is the editor in chief of the
inimitable Vogue Paris. Less controversial than her
predecessor, Carine Roitfeld, Emmanuelle told the
New York Times in 2011, "I think you can make
very strong fashion pictures without shocking."
Before beginning her career in fashion, she
attended Lübek, a posh private Catholic school in
Paris, the alma matter of many powerful women in
fashion and former first lady of France, Cécilia
Sarkozy. She scored her first big break with an
assisting job at French Elle in the early 90's.
According to her, she fell in love with fashion at age
19 after attending a Jean Paul Gaultier show at
Porte de la Vilette. Emmanuelle loves Topshop
jeans, Michael Jackson, and Saturday Night Fever.
Perfectly befitting her slim-fit, rock and roll,
androgynous style, her favorite era spans 1965-
1975. Ask her what two things she cannot live
without and the answer is her BlackBerry and
earphones. She most frequently collaborates with
photographer David Sims, with whom she has had a
close working relationship for years. "Her style is
her big shoulders, long
legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip
out. I personally like her. She's a handsome French
woman," proclaims Karl Lagerfeld.
