Emmanuelle Alt: Vogue Fashion Night Out Tokyo Photos

Here is a bit more about Emmanuelle Alt and Vogue Fashion Night Out in Tokyo, special thanks to Iñaki Carvajal of Know Wear for the excellent photograph above which was sent to him by Roger Vivier, and to our editor-at-large Bernie Rothschild for collecting most of the shots of Emmanuelle in the gallery. I find the commemorative image of the occasion so interesting, imagine the logistics... Also visit Vivian at Lost In Translation for more coverage of the event.

Emmanuelle Alt: Vogue Fashion Night Out Tokyo

Vogue editors from around the world gathered in Tokyo to show their support during Fashion Night Out. One of Emmanuelle Alt's biggest fans in Tokyo, Yuka Ryou, had the chance to meet her idol and kindly agreed to share her experience with us. Below is her personal account and her photographs, though like me she is shy and hid her face. Thank you very much, Yuka, for sharing your passion for Emmanuelle!

My Minute With Emmanuelle Alt
By Yuka Ryou

Hello, every Emmanuelle Alt fans looking at this site. My name is Yuka. I'm huge Emmanuelle fan live in Tokyo. Kellina gave a chance writing my miracle experience to me. If you're interested in this story, I'm so happy.

Last Saturday was a special day for all of Japanese fashion lovers. The VOGUE FNO in Tokyo was held. USA, Italy, UK, Paris, India, Turkey... and editor-in-chief of VOGUE all over the world came to Tokyo for cheering Japanese people. Because we were hurt by the terrible earthquake and Tsunami.

I deeply wanted to meet to Emmanuelle. It was my big dream for long long time. Then, my dreams finally came true!!!!!

I met Emmanuelle in YSL shop. She visited to the shop with editor-in-chief of VOGUE Turkey. Emmanuelle was so beautiful. She is tall, and has perfect style.

She wore a…

★ Balmain black jacket.

★ Black skinny pants.

★ Black high heels.

★ Hermes medor bracelet on left hand.

★ Cartier tank watch on right hand.

It’s just Emmanuelle style!!

And I had a little conversation with her. I’ll show you.

Yuka (Y) : Bon jour

Emmanuelle (E) : Bon jour!

Y : I’m your huge fan!

E : Oh! Thank you.

Y : Your Balmain style is so cool and perfect!

E : Thank you.

Y : Thank you for coming to Japan.

E : I love Japan. I’m glad to come to Tokyo.

Y : I can’t believe that I’m talking with you.

E : (She smiled)

<We took a picture!>

Y : I’m your huge fan. (OMG! I said same thing twice!)

E : Thank you so much.

<Shaking hands!>

Y : Merci beaucoup.

E : Merci. A bientot!

That’s all. I know it’s too short conversation. But I had precious 1 minute! I’m excited even now!!! 

The most impressive thing was she fix her eyes on my eyes. I never forget her beautiful eyes and her beautiful soft voice. 

I hope someday I can meet to her again in Paris. It’s my next dream!!! 

Thank you for reading my broken English. And Kellina, Thank you for wonderful opportunity!

Emmanuelle Alt On Vogue Paris November 2011

Feuilletez le magazine en avant-première

"2011, année phare de la beauté", écrit Emmanuelle Alt, rédactrice en chef de Vogue Paris dans l'édito du numéro de novembre 2011. Teint glowy, rose aux joues, régénération cellulaire, manucure parfaite... un numéro qui décrypte les nouveaux codes de la beauté en 10 tendances soins et make-up pour tendre vers un naturel quasi parfait. En couverture, on retrouve le top du moment Arizona Muse, jolie pin-up rétro qui pose simplement vêtue d'un nœud papillon de smoking Yves Saint Laurent sous l'œil d'Inez & Vinoodh. Cette jeune américaine de 21 ans, que l'on a découverte au printemps-été 2011 en égérie Yves Saint Laurent, incarne ce nouvel idéal de beauté aux côté des plus belles ambassadrices de Vogue comme Natasha Poly, Isabeli Fontana, Sasha Pivovarova, Karolina Kurkova, mais aussi Kate Winslet, qui pose en total look Miu Miu, ou la romancière Joan Didion.

Côté mode, on retrouve l'essentiel des collections haute couture automne-hiver 2011-2012 dans un série électrique où Raquel Zimmermann semble danser au rythme de David Bowie. La maille est aussi à l'honneur dans ce numéro de novembre, comme un cocon où se nicher à l'approche de l'hiver. Le moment idéal; pour lire les confessions de Donatella Versace, à l'occasion du lancement de la collection Versace pour H&M et de découvrir en exclusivité les noms des trois nouveaux vernis stars de la maison Chanel pour le printemps-été 2012.

Vogue Paris no. 922 novembre 2011, en kiosque le 26 octobre.

"2011 is a banner year for beauty," writes Emmanuelle Alt, editor of Vogue Paris in her editorial in the November issue of 2011. Glowy complexion, pink cheeks, cell regeneration, perfect manicure... an issue that decrypts the new codes of beauty and 10 trends in care and makeup with a tendency towards a natural look that is almost perfect. On the cover, we find up-and-comer Arizona Muse, a pretty retro pin-up that poses wearing only a bow tie with her Yves Saint Laurent smoking under the eye of Inez & Vinoodh. This young American, 21 years old, who was discovered in spring-summer 2011 and an Yves Saint Laurent muse, embodies this new ideal of beauty beside the best beauty ambassadors of Vogue like Natasha Poly, Isabeli Fontana, Sasha Pivovarova, Karolina Kurkova, but also Kate Winslet, who poses in a total look by Miu Miu, or the novelist Joan Didion.

On the fashion side, we discover the essentials of the haute couture collections of autumn-winter 2011-2012 in a powerful series where Raquel Zimmermann seems to dance to David Bowie. The mesh is also featured in the November issue, like a cocoon in which to nest at the approach of winter. The ideal time; to read the confessions of Donatella Versace at the launch of the Versace collection for H&M and to discover in exclusivity the names of the three stars of the new campaign for the house of Chanel for spring-summer 2012.

Vogue Paris Translation: Editorial, October 2011

I have translated from French to English Emmanuelle Alt's editorial for the October issue of Vogue Paris in which she outlines her vision for fall and winter fashion trends. Hot treats include the new jewelry line by Kate Moss and the publication of Pretty Much Everything by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, an anthology in two volumes that collects their collaborative photography over the past twenty years.

La mode pulse, c'est la saison. Figure de proue des tendances automne-hiver, le glamour fait fi de la météo et s'affiche sans complexe. Noir et or, l'alliance fétiche de Versace donne le tempo. C'est le retour de la sexy attitude, dopée aux robes seconde peau, aux imprimés hurlants, aux galons précieux, au cuir qui fuselle. Les codes de la maison milanaise habillent de leur aura tonique une femme maîtresse de ses envies. Des plus intimes aux plus spectaculaires : tandis que Kate Moss dévoile en exclusivité sa ligne de bijoux — étoile, ancre, croissant de lune... — dessinés pour Fred, c'est sourire aux lèvres que l'héroïne d'une story haute joaillerie fait flamber la place Vendôme à coups de saphirs, d'émeraudes et de diamants géants. Une question de caractère, mise en images par Inez & Vinoodh, tandem vedette de la photo et collaborateurs ultra-précieux de Vogue, dont un livre-monument couronne aujourd'hui le talent. Au calendrier du succès, les garçons sont aussi au rendez-vous : pour l'acteur Jean Dujardin et le créateur Christopher Bailey, la saison est radieuse. De quoi rafler une place en guest-stars dans ce numéro...

The pulse of fashion, it is the season. The figurehead of fall and winter trends, glamour ignores the weather and is displayed without complex. Black and gold, the fetish alliance of Versace sets the tempo. It is the return of the sexy attitude, doped with second-skin dresses, with screaming prints, with precious lace, with leather like fusel. The dress codes of the house of Milan are a tonic for the most desirable women. From the most intimate to the most spectacular: while Kate Moss unveils her exclusive line of jewelry — star, anchor, crescent moon... — Designed for Fred, this brings a smile to the lips of the heroine of a fine jewelry story that raised the Place Vendome with blows of giant sapphires, emeralds and diamonds. A question of character, set in images by Inez & Vinoodh, featuring the tandem of photography and ultra-valuable Vogue collaborators, including a book-monument crowning today's talent. The timing of success, the boys are also scheduled: for the actor Jean Dujardin and the designer Christopher Bailey, the season is radiant. What a roundup of guest stars in this issue...
