Emmanuelle Alt In Vogue US

In a delightful interview with Vogue US, Emmanuelle Alt shares her views on everything from Coca Light avec glace to transforming Vogue Paris... très intéressant...

On How She Sees Vogue Paris — For Now

“I want to keep the quality, the photographers we work with — David [Sims], Mert and Marcus, Mario [Testino], and Bruce Weber. I don’t think there should be radical changes. The magazine should still be chic and sophisticated. It’s a bit like buying an apartment: Before you move in, you have all these plans of what you are going to do, but then you get there, and you realize it is better to spend time living in it, and transforming it over time. I’d like there to be more beauty trends; there was so much of that in Vogue back in the eighties. And how people are living; there are so many interesting, cool people here, and they should be in the magazine. More French girls, more French lifestyle. And I am going to keep shooting for the magazine — hopefully a story every issue. I do project myself in my pictures, even if I would never wear what I shoot. Actually, most of the time I definitely wouldn’t. I always want a relationship with reality: nothing too sexy, or provocative, or fashion victim. Even if I love to dream, I want the magazine to feature a girl who looks like she belongs in real life. We are French — we can show smoking, nudity. We have no boundaries, and it can be good to have them."

Among other endearing revelations, the new editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris admits that her favorite models are Daria Werbowy and Kate Moss and that in her free time she frequents the tennis court with her six-year-old daughter, “I spend all my weekends with the kids [Antonin, 13, and Françoise, 6]. It’s that culpability of having been working at the magazine all week. Françoise is a good tennis player, so we do that. It goes so fast. A weekend is like ten minutes for me."

Not sure, Milla. It takes all types, though admittedly some types confuse me more than others...

; )

Ouai! to more French style, bring it on.
