Martine de Menthon worked as a stylist for Vogue Paris for more than 15 years, collaborating with renowned photographers such as Guy Bourdin and Helmut Newton and eventually being promoted to fashion director. She fondly remembers Emmanuelle Alt just as the editor-in-chief's career at Vogue Paris was beginning: "My first memory of Emmanuelle Alt in the mid-90s is the one of a mischievous visitor coming regularly in the Vogue Paris office... observing, joking, becoming a member of the group. Un belle carrière bien menée." The talented de Menthon has also left her mark as a freelance stylist for various projects including advertising campaigns for Chanel and The Pirelli Calendar for 2009. She is responsible for styling so many iconic fashion images that I found it difficult to narrow my selection. I think my favorites are the evocative photographs that she created with Guy Bourdin. Most recently de Menthon worked with art director Zoran Bosanac and photographer Paolo Roversi on the campaign for Cerruti men's collection for Fall/Winter 2011. She resides in Paris with her family.
