Happy 47th Birthday Emmanuelle Alt!

I am embarrassed to admit that yesterday the birthday of Emmanuelle Alt slipped my mind and I am a day late in sending her birthday greetings. Despite my tardiness, I hope you will enjoy this video in which Emmanuelle Alt and a few of the members of her Vogue Paris team celebrate her birthday by dancing to Pharrell's "Happy." Je suis désolé, Emmanuelle, joyeux anniversaire !

Review: Vogue Paris April 2014 Issue

Review: Vogue Paris April 2014 Issue
By Heather Dunhill

If you’re a product junkie then it’s time to sharpen your pencil or ready your Google search because the Vogue Paris April issue has a few items for your dressing table....

First, you have to check out the limited edition Proenza Schouler collaboration with M.A.C. in News Beauté. The packaging alone is your signal to the luxe colors that abound from oceanic teal to glossed lemon and royal violet — perfect to transition your spring to summer makeup drawer or cupboard, whichever the case may be….

Just a little further into the tome at Beauté you’ll love that Christelle Baillet narrowed the daunting annual bronzer search down to her seven favorites for body and face. And, a must-have this season is a range of the perfect pinks for a healthy summer glow. Why not fall for the luscious Givenchy Prismissime Euphoric palette, which is entirely too hot. To save you a little time, I spied this at Barneys New York.

Then, for beauty from the inside out — there’s Yogi Tea Himalaya Ginger Harmony a sumptuous ancient blend of ginger, fennel, cinnamon, anise, and coriander. Now this I had a more difficult time locating… so, if you see it in the U.S. please let me know!

Okay, one more… just a reminder that a summer scent is in order, always a tall order as they’re never easy to find. Théodora Aspart has culled a few in Beauté  but I feel she left one off — Creed’s Virgin Island Water. If you haven’t heard of it, Virgin Island Water is truly divine, crafted of highly covetable notes that include coconut, lime, white rum, bergamot, mandarin orange, hibiscus, ginger, ylang-ylang, and jasmine. Think hammock in Bali, secluded pink sand beaches of Eleuthera, palms swaying on Bermuda, and a Caipirinha under the Brazilian stars….

Vogue Paris Translation: Le Point De Vue De Vogue April 2014

Les beaux jours arrivent. Cet avant-goût de l'été dans l'air colore et dope les pages de Vogue ce mois-ci. La mode a ainsi embarqué pour South Beach, Miami. Hâlées par les U. V., craquantes sous un soleil précoce, les tops photographiées par Mario Testino dans la série ‹‹Miami Heat›› ont la peau couleur caramel et l'allure libérée, conquérante.

Liberté : c'est un peu le mantra de Riccardo Tisci. Directeur artistique de Givenchy depuis neuf ans, il ose tout, ne s'interdit aucun tabou. Folle et portable, sa mode propulse la marque française vers la modernité. Un succès XXL, dont le créateur italien nous parle, série de mode orchestrée par son gang — d'amis — à la clé.

Un rush de forme, avec crèmes dynamos, massages à impulsion, training haute fréquence : c'est le programme que nous suggèrent les pages beauté afin de débloquer et décupler l'énergie qui est en nous.

Ça donne envie et c'est pile le moment. La covergirl Cameron Russell va-t-elle faire de la politique ? Une chose est sûre, Cameron a les diplômes (à l'université de Columbia) pour ça. Mannequin vedette pour Victoria's Secret et militante, son punch électrise.

Vitale, et même solaire, Emmanuelle Seigner nous inspire. 2014 est son moment : nominée aux Césars pour La Vénus à fourrure, l'actrice chanteuse sort un 3e album, ‹‹Distant Lover››, encore plus rock et personnel.

Ginevra Elkann est l'aînée des petites-filles de Gianni Agnelli. Sans faire de bruit, cette héritière a tout bon. L'élégance, le talent, le charme. Productrice de cinéma, Ginevra Elkann dirige également la pinacothèque de Turin. Avec un mélange de flair et de sophistication qu'elle tient d'une famille à part et de ses qualités à elle, tout aussi rares.

The warm weather arrives. The taste of summer in the air colors and boosts the pages of Vogue this month. Fashion has embarked on South Beach, Miami. Tanned by the UV, crackling under the early sun, the tops photographed by Mario Testino in the series "Miami Heat" have skin the color of caramel and the liberated look, triumphant.

Freedom: this is a little mantra of Riccardo Tisci. The artistic director of Givenchy for nine years, he dares all, he does not forbid any taboo. Mad and portable, his fashion propels the French brand to modernity. An XXL success, which the Italian designer tells us about, a fashion series orchestrated by his gang — his friends — the key.

A rush of form, with cream dynamos, massages on impulse, high frequency training: this is the program we suggest in the beauty pages to unlock and multiply the energy that is in us.

It makes you want it and it's right now. The cover girl Cameron Russell, will she do politics? One thing is certain, Cameron has her degrees (at Columbia University) for that. Star model for Victoria's Secret and activist, her punch is electrifying.

Vital, and even solar, Emmanuelle Seigner inspires us. 2014 is her time: nominated for a César for Venus in Fur, the actress singer released a third album, Distant Lover, more rock and staff.

Ginevra Elkann is the eldest granddaughter of Gianni Agnelli. Quietly, the heiress has everything right. The elegance, the talent, the charm. Film producer, Ginevra Elkann also runs the gallery in Turin. With a mixture of flair and sophistication that she holds of a family apart and of her own qualities, just as rare.

Vogue Paris: Miami Heat

Vogue Paris: Miami Heat
By Kamila Brudzynska

First thing which I have to say about the April issue of Vogue Paris is — I love the cover SO much! Cameron’s hair, JPG’s jacket, Isabel Marant’s trousers — pure perfection!

As for the editorial "Miami Heat"… All those sequins, colorful fabrics, glow, shine… I’m not a person who loves colorful things but this time I have to say — I fell in love with these stylizations. We all know that Emmanuelle Alt is a fan of disco and David Bowie so this time we have even more inspiration from these things than we usually see — the rock 'n' roll ones.

I’m also surprised that Mario Testino has done such a great job here. I would never have guessed that he made these photos if there hadn't been a note. I associate him with definitely different style and esthethic of photos — a lot of elegance, classic glamour, maybe even some sort of sensitivity… But as we can see, the Alt and Testino team is a very promising one!

I was going to write which photo is my favorite one but honestly, there are too many good ones. However, I could literally die for the Isabel Marant leather jacket… Especially with this Céline skirt… Such an awesome outfit!

I think Madame Alt and Monsieur Testino have done a great job and we have one of the best latest editorials in Vogue Paris here. Not so predictable and very nice for the eye.

Vogue Paris: Nomade

Vogue Paris: Nomade
By Paul Kolyer

Anastasia Barbieri's "Nomade" takes a spring fashion trek to Kenya in the April issue of Vogue Paris.† Pack a wardrobe with simple shapes, longer is better, that stand out with abstract prints and details of fringe or braids! Glen Luchford photographs in black-and-white or faded earthy tones that fit the "darker mood" of fashion this spring. 

A neutral MaxMara poncho is easy luxe, Freja Beha Erichsen is stunning on horseback and can ride to Marrakesh and hang with the painted birds in Saint Laurent's oasis any day! A long plunging draped V-neck dress from Givenchy says it all! With it's deep color, and wrist styled with the perfect cuffs! The safari look can be a Chloe sleeveless dress, belted close to the body, and the pleated fabric and metal neckpiece echo Issey Miyake! The long Kenzo skirt has a primitive print and [un]wraps as needed. Worn here with a cropped blouse so as to attract prey!

The Dior de la Serengeti with vibrant stripes and draped wide "bande de tissue" and artisanal neckpiece, will dominate any watering hole!

Try a python print out for the night and smother it with fringe and feathers, then greet the rising sun with Donna Karan's shear trousers, wide leather crafted hip belt and fringey top!

Junya Watanabe has taken fringe to the next level! The last look is from his spectacular SS14 show, this one in neutral color and amazing braided fringe.

The next time Anastasia travels to faraway lands — count me in — she packs for an exceptional woman, with these looks and just the right accessories; neckpieces and bracelettes, you too will stand out on the horizon! 

†Anastasia Barbieri and Glen Luchford have produced some fabulous pictures for Vogue Hommes called "Soysambu," this was also the location of the "Nomade" shoot. The Soysambu ranch and conservancy are the subject of a fabulous article by Jerry Stafford in Vogue Hommes! I was especially thrilled to read about the fact that the film White Mischief was based on the history of this place! I heard about the film because Geoffrey Beene mentioned how much he loved it and I saw it on videocassette years ago, the fashion is lovely, perfectly done to suit the characters and plot! Look it up if you can!
