Emmanuelle Alt: Favorite Songs

Throughout the month of December, Emmanuelle Alt is treating readers to a musical advent calendar by revealing the video for one of her favorite songs each day on the Vogue Paris site. In tandem with her special music issue for December/January, perhaps she means this to take the place of the vanquished Vogue Paris calendar we had all grown to love. In any event, Emmanuelle is clearly stuck in the Seventies and Eighties... in America! Très bizarre... Visit Vogue Paris for Emmanuelle's daily update or listen to the convenient playlist I assembled, I will update it again once all of her songs are known. Note that I had to put it in chronological order to check my math — most of Emmanuelle's favorite songs were released when she was between the ages of 11 and 19.

I would expect the editor of Vogue Paris to have a more eclectic taste in music. This list is not only très bizarre, it's très boring.

So its true that EA is the PV guest editor

LOL, I know, Michael! It's like a really bad wedding reception.

Yes, Bernie, I guess she is it. Although I don't think "guest" is the right word...
21 décembre 2011 | Registered Commenterkellina
Or guess whos gonna replace her lol

Naw, Bernie, guess again... CN wants you to feel like you are at a dull wedding reception apparently... in contrast to vampire balls and riproaring merde like that. Better question, guess who will keep paying to go to a wedding reception monthly? That's something that is fun to do once or twice, like buying bridal magazines, non ?

Carine the Clown. Not only did she channel Charlie Sheen -- "I am the winner !" -- she added the cliche "at the end of the day." Paris, please take her back !!

Reminds me of Vogue Diana Vreeland-era...Got your point lol

I am reading D.V. right now, Bernie, so her strong voice is probably influencing me even more than usual. She has such vivid style in conveying her thoughts, j'adore.

It is baffeling to me, how anyone cd possibly interprete this backhanded nyt-article as positive. I think it is pretty obvious, that going from EIC of VP to window decorating at Barney´s is a clear downfall.
Her desperate attempt at creating a hype around herself by launching that book and throwing two major parties for no reason cannot prevent that. This hype is short lived and the power is gone.
This sad serious of events has nothing to do with the amazing job she did at VP for a full decade that she will definitely will always be rembered for.
But when it comes to Alt ( who upgraded from a mere stylist to EIC of the probably most important fashion magazine in the world), no contest. She won.
