Emmanuelle Alt: French Vogue needs breasts
Emmanuelle Alt has allowed one shot of a breast in her debut edition of French Vogue, just so readers know it’s still the same magazine.
The Paris-born style icon is now the editor of the legendary fashion publication, following the departure of Carine Roitfeld. Emmanuelle has worked as a stylist and fashion director in the past and is keen to put her own stamp on the publication.
The first edition under her editorship will be available to buy on March 25, and she’s proud of it. The layout it clean and fresh and she has made the decision to include less artistic shots where models flash their flesh.
“It’s simple fashion. You can see the clothes perfectly. I want to show in French Vogue more and more a lot of clothes,” she told WWD.
“One boob. Otherwise, you don’t recognise it’s French Vogue.”
Emmanuelle is also putting a renewed focus on features, as she thinks it’s vital for buyers of Vogue to have something to read. She wants the publication to appeal to all kinds of women, so has decided to use a lot of different staff to keep things fresh.
“I want to have new people working for the magazine,” she said. “I also want to push some young stylists: all the girls who have been trained by French Vogue… I will try to surprise the reader month after month.”
