Fashion Icon: Emmanuelle Alt

When former Vogue Paris Editor-in-Chief Carine Roitfeld was at the helm of Vogue Paris, Emmanuelle Alt who was Creative Director at the time was known as “the cool one”.

In today’s post, we uncover the anatomy of Alt’s signature style and provide you with a few looks you can easily replicate.

First, the attitude— serious, decidedly and srong. Where Roitfeld was provocatively decadent (which we all still love and appreciate), Alt is charmingly minimalist.

Her brand of minimalism should not to be confused with simplistic. From the cut of fabric to the tailoring, it is evident that there is a luxe component to her selections.

Second, the color palette. Her color choices often consist of neutrals with the occasional delightful pop of reds, blues, golds, and other shades.

Third, remember the uniform: luxurious top, belt, super flattering and tailored jeans or trousers, and non-pretentious, yet stylish shoes. Alt is able to combine classic and modern pieces into very stylish and non-boring looks that are predictable only in the choice of silhouette.
