emanuelle alt named new editor in chief of Vogue paris
Emanuelle Alt has succeeded Carine Roitfeld as editor of French Vogue. Alt began her career at Elle in 1990, at the age of just 20, and in addition to styling for Balenciaga and Isabel Marant, she served as fashion director at both mixte and vogue; working under Roitfeld until her recent departure.
Regarding her new position, president of Conde Nast France; Xavier Romatet has explained“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. Emmanuelle has all the professional and personal qualities required to maintain Vogue Paris as a world reference among fashion magazines. I totally trust her to manage this prestigious brand and develop it in all its dimensions, including digital.”
Her strong, chic parisian personal style is admired by bloggers and the fashion glitterati and i am intrigued to see whether she can put her own innovative stamp on the magazine while still maintaining its beloved heritage.
