A FRENCH LESSON- Emmanuelle Alt

here’s a lesson in french. french chic! get a uniform. figure out what looks and feels good on you. stick to it. add luxurious accessories. keep is classic, simple and chic!

emmanuelle alt, the new editor-in-chief of vogue paris, is the french teacher. she sticks to simple rules. she’s always in black or white. always classic! she loves a relaxed fitting blue or white shirt. a stripe is sometimes in the mix. always simple! most of the time she’s wearing a perfectly tailored jacket, usually balmain, in black or white. a grey or white tee is usually her under pinning. always chic! her bottom of choice is a skinny five pocket jean also in black, white or leather. sound familiar? it should, these are some of my favorite things!

always classic and simple, but never boring, she loves fur, a tuxedo, animal print and black leather biker jackets. glamourous and chic! she never leaves home without her cartier tank watch and hermés collier de chien cuff bracelet. luxurious and chic! always in a isabel marant boot or a givenchy strappy heel. sexy and chic!

it’s clear why she is one of my favorite women- she knows who she is, what she likes and she sticks to it! she’s consistent, confident, classic, chic! french chic!
