Review: Vogue Paris November 2012 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris November 2012 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

Uh. Seriously. Can Emmanuelle Alt take a cue or eighty from the most influential Vogue EIC in history? Tastemaker Diana Vreeland curated style from her signature red office at Vogue headquarters. She inspired and influenced — "You gotta have style. It helps you get up in the morning. It's a way of life. Without it you're nobody. And I'm not talking about a lot of clothes.” Vreeland understood how we crave a peek into fashion’s crystal ball.

I’m entirely over Alt recycling the 80s. 

I could barely get past the cover of the November issue. OK, fine, I literally judged the book by its cover. I had to force myself to turn the page. The cover photo of Daria Werbowy, Stephanie Seymour, and Lauren Hutton looked like it was recycled from either a 1988 backyard BBQ pic or one of those family photos on the beach with matching white button-downs and faded mom jeans. 

Thanks to the advert pages like The Kooples and Fendi and that stunning emerald green Michael Kors number for some divine styling guidance between the covers. 

All right, I’ll set you free from my worst rant to date. Feeling a bit like a crabby Cathy. Hmmm, now that I think about it — could my poor reviews be the reason I haven’t received the last two issues of Vogue Paris? Wait. Emmanuelle, did you cancel my subscription?

The Angle On Alt: Lagerfeld Confidential

Emmanuelle Alt played a part in the 2007 documentary Lagerfeld Confidential which examines the work of Karl Lagerfeld and the house of Chanel. Special thanks to our amazing contributing editor Kamila Brudzynska for sharing her insights about the film and Emmanuelle's role.

The Angle On Alt: Lagerfeld Confidential
By Kamila Brudzynska

Karl Lagerfeld is a huge icon in the fashion world and probably one of the hardest working men in the business. He is not only the designer of Chanel, Fendi, and his own brand, but also a photographer, a creator of perfumes, an artist, a publisher, a film director, and so on.

In October 2007, a documentary premiered by the name of Lagerfeld Confidential in which the director, Rodolphe Marconi, spent nearly two years shooting Karl and editing more than 200 hours of material down to a mere 85 minutes. Emmanuelle Alt appears in the video a few times, beginning with the footage shown above of her sitting in the front row at one of Lagerfeld's fashion shows in Paris.

Emmanuelle has a bigger role in Karl's mansion in Biarritz. She worked as a stylist during the photo shoot by the designer in his studio. In the documentary, Lagerfeld photographed his favorite model, Brad Kroening, for the album Metamophoses of an American which shows his development in life as a man and in his career as a model. The iconic designer also took photos for some of the campaigns.

The documentary shows a great connection between Emmanuelle and Karl. They like working together and have fun in their free time. It is an interesting documentary not only for Emmanuelle Alt fans but because it captures Lagerfeld in his natural ambience, Marconi presented a very personal portrait of the man.
