Emmanuelle Alt named Editor of French Vogue

8 Jan

Just like I suspected, Emmanuelle Alt has been announced successor of the legendary Carine Roitfeld, outgoing editor of Vogue Paris. The very obvious reason was to ensure continuity since she worked alongside Carine through her 10 year reign as editor. She was the logical choice if you ask me.

The president of Condé Nast France,  Xavier Romatet, had this to say, “Vogue Paris is performing strongly and I wish to entrust the editor-in-chief position to someone who will ensure a certain continuity, while bringing a new energy and dimension.”

We certainly agree Xavier, there’s a special place in our hearts for our rock chic style icon, Emmanuelle Alt.

Hearty hearty congratulations to Emmanuelle, we wish her a fun career as editor in chief!

Carine Roitfeld: Rounding off a decade of Style

17 Dec

Carine Roitfeld is one of the leading ladies on my style icon wall of fame. Love her bold, eclectic and sometimes eccentric style; she can pull off a Tee and denim skirt and still look as fabulous as when she’s under a massive fur coat.

My biggest attraction is that very down-to-earth, vivacious personality; the polar opposite of Anna Wintour. She’s giggling, laughing, hugging, kissing people at fashion week. She’s a dedicated family woman, always seen hanging out with her son and daughter and is so energetic and full of life. And wow, does she live and breathe that effortless Parisian chic or what? She personifies the i-just-dropped-out-of-bed-looking-fabulous.

She’s literally synonymous with French Vogue, think French Vogue and Parisian Chic, think Carine Roitfeld.

So I definitely share the shock of the fashion world to hear that she’s resigned from French Vogue (after 10 years) to concentrate on personal projects. All hope is not lost though, i know the fashion world hasn’t heard the last of Carine. And of course the speculation is on about  her replacement, as if it’s not already been decided, i think it just might be her right hand chic and loyal fashion director, Emmanuelle Alt.

I had always wanted to do a blog post on Carine Roitfeld as my Style icon, so i guess here goes. Check out the stunning style of the outgoing French Vogue editor.

French Vogue will miss Carine sorely but we, we’ll be on the look out for her because we know she’ll be around.

Emmanuelle Alt: Parisian Chic Supremo and Global Style Icon

19 Oct

This week, I will be celebrating my favourite Parisian style queens. I’ll kick off with this lovely lady.

Emmanuelle Alt, world famous style icon, Parisian Chic personified, ultra polished and extremely chic. She works as Fashion Director of Vogue Paris alongside the legendary fashion icon Carine Roitfeld, she’s also stylist to designers like Isabel Marant.

Emmanuelle literally owns the rock chic, edgy, balmain-esque  look. She obviously refreshes the style with various stunning pieces in the ensemble, but she looks super stylish and effortlessly chic ALL the time. She’s one of those people who possess innate ‘non-contrived’ style.

I literally have never seen her in a dress, in bright colours or obviously feminine outfits; with Emmanuelle, it’s noir and edgy. Her make up is au natural, almost looks like she rolled out of bed looking fabulous. There’s a certain je na sais quoi about her that enhances the stylish aura.

And it is so beautiful that she’s also a doting mother, with a lovely daughter who is obviously a mini fashionista already. What with a mom like that.

Viva Emmanuelle! She’s in my style icon hall of fame, right beside Carine,  Giovanna Battaglia and a host of others.

I shall close with this beautiful quote from her:

‘Forget trendy designer labels. Jeans, a sweater or a t-shirt worn under a jacket that seems welded to you. When it’s just right, when you don’t see the effort, it’s irresistible’

Totally agree with you Emmanuelle.
