Vogue Paris April 2011: Gisele Bundchen

Emmanuelle Alt's long awaited first cover for Vogue Paris has been released featuring Gisele Bündchen on the April issue and it is gorgeous. Wearing a white mini-dress from the Dolce & Gabbana Spring/Summer 2011 collection as photographed by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in St Barts, Gisele seems to hold all of the promise of spring... How did Emmanuelle choose Gisele for her important first cover as editor? She responds: "For me it was just a spontaneous decision, there was no question. I hope you like it." The cover image is inspired by the 1985 film Vagabond directed by Agnès Varda.

Vogue Paris Playlist: Paris Fashion Week

Vogue Paris posted a playlist of their favorite songs heard on the runway during Paris Fashion Week. I have collected the songs on Grooveshark as "Paris Fashion Week Playlist by Vogue Paris" so as PFW wraps up you can enjoy the music that accompanied the shows while viewing the collections online. I would love to know which of these tunes Emmanuelle Alt prefers... I'd guess Gloria Gaynor is a certainty with her love of disco. How about you, which of these songs do you like? Which collections do you prefer this season?

Owen Pallett "Keep The Dog Quiet"
au défilé Vanessa Bruno

Metronomy "She Wants"
au défilé Emanuel Ungaro

Leonard Cohen "A Thousand Kisses Deep"
au défilé Haider Ackermann

Gloria Gaynor "I Will Survive"
au défilé Vivienne Westwood

Queen "Don't Stop Me Now"
au défilé Lanvin

Suicide "Ghost Rider"
au défilé Manish Arora

Lady Gaga "Born This Way"
au défilé Thierry Mugler

Is Emmanuelle Alt French?

Hilary Alexander of The Telegraph conducted another of her intriguing interviews with Emmanuelle Alt. Among the astonishing facts revealed:

  • Emmanuelle disdains exercise, facials, makeup, skirts, and water, preferring to drink Diet Coke.
  • She has her hair cut spontaneously while on fashion shoots and never bothers to go to the hairdresser.
  • Her mother, Françoise, modeled for Lanvin and Nina Ricci in the 1960s and 70s.
  • Emmanuelle enjoys cooking, driving, and family vacations.
  • She neither smokes nor drinks alcohol; she even avoids coffee!
  • She has an uncanny eye for the next big thing with an affinity for rising designers including "Bouchra Jarrar, Alexandre Vauthier, Anthony Vaccarello — 'I think he has a big future' — Julien Fournié, Maxime Simoens, Olympia Le-Tan (handbags), Haider Ackermann, Damir Doma."

Only ten days until the release of Emmanuelle's first issue as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, I look forward to seeing what she has up her chic sleeve...

Emmanuelle Alt: Paris Fashion Week Looks

I have added photographs of Emmanuelle Alt at Paris Fashion Week to the photo gallery, let's take a peek at the sartorial choices of the new editor-in-chief for Vogue Paris on her home turf. I like the sage green button down paired with the worn denim jeans and navy blazer, casual but sharp. I especially love Emmanuelle's rosy cheeks against her white jacket at the Vogue Paris party, she is clearly flushed with excitement and perhaps a beverage or two. What do you think of Emmanuelle's looks for Paris Fashion Week so far?

Last night Vogue Paris opened their Petit Salon des Jeunes Créateurs (or Little Salon of Young Artists) as part of this season's Vogue Bar at Hôtel de Crillon and what a party it was! Also notable as Emmanuelle Alt's first time officially hosting an event for the magazine, the bar overflowed with friends of Vogue Paris, models, designers, editors, photographers, and journalists who turned out to honor the young creators: Vincent Darré, Ligia Dias, Damir Doma, Olympia Le-Tan, Alberto Marani, Maxime Simoens, Anthony Vaccarello, and Yiqing Yin. Visit the Vogue Paris web site to view the adorable collection of autographed Polaroids commemorating the evening as well as other fabulous photos.
