Vogue Paris: Emmanuelle

Vogue Paris: Emmanuelle
By Richard James

The French beauty Emmanuelle Seigner is not an unusual face to be gracing the pages of Vogue Paris, over the years we have seen her summarized in the team's usual aesthetic several times and this time is no different. Shot by Terry Richardson and styled by one of the most relevant and exciting stylists of our time, Marie Chaix.

Although the story is short but sweet packing a real punch with Emmanuelle Seigner exuding her extraordinary beauty through minimal makeup contrasted with pieces from Lanvin, Jil Sander, and Balmain which keep the story simple but strong and ultimately sexy.

The editorial breathes an utterly refreshing take on beauty, shot by Terry in a usual Terry manner, focusing on her sheer beauty and razor sharp cheek bones.

Chaix's presence in Vogue Paris recently has been a welcomed addition for me with her sultry take on the trends giving the magazine a breath of fresh air and her latest editorial with Emmanuelle Seigner summarizes her utterly flawless sense of style.

I Want To Be An Alt: Year Two

Today marks the second anniversary of I Want To Be An Alt, two amazing years following Emmanuelle Alt, editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris and style influence to many around the world. It has been an interesting year and I love all of you for reading along. I would like to express my thanks to the contributors to the site — the writers, the photographers, and the artists that lend their talents to make it worth visiting — especially my brilliant editorial team: Kamila Brudzynska, Heather Dunhill, Richard James, Kate Ringo Suzuki, and Bernie Rothschild. Extra special thanks to my beau, Michael, for the constant encouragement and the grounding element, you are my huckleberry. I very much look forward to another fabulous year ahead with all of you!

Vogue Paris: Christy

Vogue Paris: Christy
By Heather Dunhill 

What an amazing trifecta of talent on these impactful pages of Vogue Paris — stylist Géraldine Saglio, photographers Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin (AKA Inez & Vinoodh) and the stunningly sexy model Christy Turlington, who has been quoted as saying: “I sincerely feel that beauty largely comes from within.” Maybe that’s why as a forty-four year old mother she is still on the pages of one of the hottest fashion magazines out there. Surprising to think, by antiquated industry standards, that she was “too old” to model more than a decade ago. How nice for us that has evolved and the teens and tweens are no longer the primary keepers of what makes a woman beautiful.

Turning the pages, at first glance it’s easy to be drawn in by the tights — Saglio signals that it’s time to embrace hosiery, again. But this time around, the modern twist is to make them a focal point and a layered accessory. Even a chic necessity as with the black leather braided mini-skirt. Then, take a closer look at the makeup by Aaron de Mey and hair by James Pecis; it’s perfection. Goes to show for those of you out there that consider makeup an after thought to your look…

But it’s the incredibly moody and limited palette that catches us off guard, the stark contrast of black on white and the absence of color that makes the strongest statement. Except, of course, for the unexpected crimson in a coffee mug, rose, or contemporary chair. Reminding us with all the color that abounds in fashion now, not to turn our back on ebony, or ivory for that matter, because it can bring the drama with the subtlest inflection. It’s art — the edgy, sexy, modern kind.
