The Angle On Alt: New York Fashion Week

I am excited to present a new feature on I Want To Be An Alt, a recurring column entitled "The Angle On Alt" in which we examine all the latest scoop on Emmanuelle Alt. In the first installment, Heather Dunhill rounds up the highlights of Emmanuelle's New York Fashion Week. Thanks for your thorough research, Heather, it is almost as if we are there, watching the shows with Emmanuelle Alt and her Vogue Paris posse...

The Angle On Alt: New York Fashion Week
By Heather Dunhill

As expected, Vogue Paris editor-in-chief Emmanuelle Alt put a few extra miles on those heels of hers while she made her way from Hudson Street to Pier 57 then on to Lincoln Center to view the New York Fashion Week Fall 2012 collections. Just as we would want our girl to be, she was front row and center for all, spotted with friends like Virginie Mouzat at Rodarte; Capucine Safyurtlu at Theyskens' Theory; Vinoodh Matadin and Inez van Lamsweerde at Ralph Lauren; and seated next to Hollywood stars like Rooney Mara and Emma Stone at Calvin Klein.

Low on the drama scale but still enough to register on the radar screen of fellow guests and New York Magazine’s The Cut, it was reported that at the Altuzarra show, the punctual Emmanuelle was quickly and mysteriously stewarded from her front row seat to another section just before the show began. Shortly thereafter, Carine Roitfeld, former Vogue Paris editor-in-chief, and her daughter, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld, popped in to take the two seats adjacent to EA’s initial seating. If you haven’t heard, to say their relationship has cooled is an understatement. Clearly there is a publicist somewhere in New York City with a round of apologies under her YSL belt by now.

On a much lighter note, The Daily overhead Emmanuelle quip at the Alexander Wang show: “No, I don’t make snow angels — I’m very afraid of the cold!” Hmm, random information that makes me curious about the conversation that quote fits into... and it certainly explains her love of warm outerwear!

Follow in Emmanuelle's fashionable steps and view a few of the shows she attended in New York:

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.
