Vogue Paris: Carla En Privé

Vogue Paris: Carla en privé
By Kate Ringo Suzuki

This month in Vogue Paris, Carla Bruni gives us the grand house tour in the editorial "Carla en privé." We get an intimate look into what it's like to live like a supermodel cum successful musician and one-time Midnight in Paris actress (she was the sexy tour guide).

We catch a glimpse of her bookshelf. Where most of us would have clumsy snapshots pinned haphazardly, Carla has gorgeous black and white shots of herself and assorted beautiful people. I wonder if Vogue Paris stylists didn’t rearrange her pictures to look artfully haphazard? Chicly mussed?

From the looks of it, Carla will never run out of guitars. Lucky for her! The studio looks cozy. It lets in a lot of light. Breathe. A moment of silence.

Next we see assorted pictures of people who inspire her. Okay, now we’re cookin! This is where I start to wake up! We see a picture of Patti Smith and Robert Mapplethorpe — are they artists? No… they’re Just Kids. It’s like I just downed an espresso. Carla likes Patti Smith? I read Just Kids last month… it was so good it made me cry!

We also see a picture of a young Isabella Rossellini. YES! (I have a signed copy of her book, Some of Me, from way back. I’m a silly, giggly fan of hers.) Maybe I’ll tell you the story one day. But I digress…

The pièce de résistance — posters of the Beatles and Bob Dylan. What’s not to like?

Emmanuelle Alt: On The Road

Taking its name from a Jack Kerouac novel, the editorial "On the Road" is a weird sort of Easy Rider meets Mad Max tribute. In these images styled by Emmanuelle Alt for the Fall/Winter 2009 issue of Vogue Hommes International, denim, leather, and biker attitude reign supreme while Mario Sorrenti photographs Eniko Mihalik and Patrick Petitjean riding a motorcycle down an endless dirt path. There doesn't seem to be much of a story to the hippy duo's getaway, more like a road to nowhere…

For more of the Fall/Winter 2009 issue of Vogue Hommes International, see Carine Roitfeld's "Plaisir Solitaire."

Emmanuelle Alt Models For Jean Paul Gaultier

Emmanuelle Alt Models For Jean Paul Gaultier
By Richard James

While legendary in the front row for her illustrious reign as one of the most influential tastemakers in Paris, Emmanuelle Alt's career has not only stretched across her time at French ELLE, Mixte, 20 Ans, and now Vogue Paris, the one time George Michael impersonator was once also a model and understandably so with her long legs, high cheekbones, warm smile, and perfect skin presumably inherited from her mother, Françoise, herself a Lanvin and Nina Ricci model in the 1960s and '70s.

After Françoise Alt retired from the catwalk, she would accompany her daughter to shows during the same period that Emmanuelle started as a fashion assistant at ELLE France. Emmanuelle remembers this time: "When she stopped modeling, we would go to fashion shows together. My first was Jean Paul Gaultier, when I was 19. It was crazy. I loved it." Her first show with her mother was the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 1986 collection at Porte de la Villette. The excitement and craziness of the atmosphere was a delight to a young Emmanuelle who in a previous interview with The Telegraph thought it was "Really funny!" being swept up in the fun and amusement of any Jean Paul Gaultier show.

Emmanuelle's time on the catwalk was short lived but involved walking for the man who since her early teens provided fun, entertainment, and influence. At the age of 27, Emmanuelle walked in the show for the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 1994 collection, "The Grand Voyage," widely considered one of the best ever shows by the designer. In this rare archival footage, Emmanuelle is seen on the catwalk with some of the most iconic models of our time, some of which now at Vogue Paris she has forged both professional and personal relationships with such as Kate Moss and Carla Bruni.

I've always felt that a relation can be made between that early influence of Gaultier's work and the work of Emmanuelle, her vision androgynous and her attitude awesomely French, you can see just how a relationship can be forged between the two iconic Parisians. Emmanuelle considers the 1980s "the era of Jean Paul Gaultier" in the days "with real production values and amazing sets" which can be regarded as a thing of the past in the days of theatrics and experimentation, Jean Paul Gaultier is one of the last greats whose shows remain Fun and Theatrical.

Emmanuelle Alt shares her thoughts on the Jean Paul Gaultier Fall/Winter 2007 collection

Franck Durand For Balmain Spring 2013 Campaign

Atelier Franck Durand provided art direction for Pierre Balmain's Spring 2013 advertising campaign for both the men's and women's collections. Karim Sadli photographed models Anna Selezneva and Bastiaan van Gaalan for the campaign as directed by Franck Durand, aiming for the atmosphere that permeates the grand hotels of the French Riviera, sun-drenched glamour. I adore the hyperreality of these two shots poolside. Bravo, Monsieur Durand.
