Emmanuelle Alt: Tuneoff, Take Two

Emmanuelle Alt vs. Carine Roitfeld: Let's Get Physical via JibJab

 

I must admit that I was a bit surprised when Emmanuelle Alt accepted my challenge to a tuneoff, and she certainly put up quite a fight with her Wham! video, but I think I have the deal breaker right here, folks… Carine Roitfeld has agreed to serve as my proxy for the next round, taking on Emmanuelle Alt in "Let's Get Physical" by Olivia Newton-John. It seems that the more seriously Emmanuelle takes the dance contest, the more Carine smiles…

Happy Valentine's Day From I Want To Be An Alt

Emmanuelle Alt and her husband, Franck Durand, are a darling couple, shown here with their beloved terrier, Pomme, declaring their love for Nicolas Ghesquière. Due to Fashion Week, they may not even be on the same continent at this time, but I hope the sweet pair finds a way to celebrate their love for one another regardless. Happy Valentine's Day to Emmanuelle, Franck, Pomme, and to IWTBAA lovers everywhere.

Introducing... Heather Dunhill, Contributing Editor

I am utterly delighted to present the latest addition to the IWTBAA editorial team — please join me in welcoming Heather Dunhill, our new contributing editor! Heather will be sharing her passion for fashion with all of us, particularly her predilection for Emmanuelle Alt. And now... with no further ado... I will pass the microphone to Heather to tell us more about herself...

It only took covering my first New York Fashion Week for an affiliate of The New York Times in Sarasota, Florida, to confirm that I am a style addict and fashion spectator beyond other natural inclinations toward art, design, and modern architecture.

From there, I turned on full-creative throttle and went from that five column/week Social Editor stint to being solely style focused. I now write "Fashion IQ" for Sarasota Magazine as well as a style blog in partnership with the regional magazine. Jazzed to be among the contributing editors at IWTB, the blog leader for unusually clever insight on Alt, Roitfeld, Battaglia, and Coppola. Between us, I've been secretly internet stalking (for fashion anthropologic purposes only, of course!) the elusively chic creature that is Emmanuelle Alt in her natural habitat of fashion's finest circles… and, anxious to share....

Emmanuelle Alt: Wham! 

Emmanuelle Alt certainly chose an interesting stage for her retort to my recent request for a tuneoff — the video marking the launch of her new Vogue Paris web site for which she dances and jumps and moves her lips to the syncopated rhythms of "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" by Wham! She and other Vogue Paris staff members are joined by a few models for a fun 80s style video, dressed in faded denim jeans, high tops, and white tees with either the Vogue logo or the word "Go-Go" printed in black.
