I Want To Be An Alt

At first I stubbornly resisted this idea, but the day that Emmanuelle Alt was announced as the next editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris I had to look at myself and laugh. What did I happen to wear that day? Grey skinny jeans tucked into worn Harley Davidson boots, a blue and white pinstriped shirt untucked beneath a vintage black velvet jacket with the cuffs rolled... I was accidentally channeling the style of Emmanuelle Alt and not my idol, Carine Roitfeld! Clearly my heart belongs to the Roitfeld family but just as steadily as the refrain "I Want To Be A Roitfeld" played in my mind, my fascination with Emmanuelle Alt has grown and I am increasingly curious to see her Vogue Paris. I will always want to be a Roitfeld but at the same time a part of me is screaming, "I Want To Be An Alt!" Let us see where the freshly anointed queen of Parisian rock 'n' roll chic takes us...

Special thanks to Pierre-Alban HF from The Crowd for his kind permission to use this striking photograph of Emmanuelle, visit his blog for more lovely shots of Paris street fashion.

J'espere me tromper mais ce "blog" a l'air petri de mauvaises intentions.
Voyons la suite et surtout attendons de lire les reactions des lecteurs, des vrais lecteurs...

I assure you I have only the best intentions with this blog, Celine. I believe all of the comments that you see are left by "real" readers.
