One thing that I cannot deny Emmanuelle Alt has done at Vogue Paris is compile a fresh magazine. There's no hints of Carine, well, except for the odd boob or two. Everything from the layout and amount of white throughout gives the magazine an overall fresh, rejuvenated and innovative feel.
Alt might use her favourite models, but who wouldn't? I would. She knows these girls deliver and does support the newbies also. Janice Alida, Kristina Salinovic and Nadja Bender have been present inside a few consecutive issues.
I believe the whole reason for Carine's departure was the make the magazine commercial. Emmanuelle has done just that. She delivers wearable outfits, shoot after shoot. I found her vision to become clear within the first issue.
David Bellemere and Hans Feurer have become regular contributors too. Alt isn't just going to wipe-out the photographers that have made French Vogue over the years. She's doing her bit, with asking new photographers to shoot editorials. I love what she's doing and I look forward to each month - just as I did when Carine Roitfeld was editor-in-chief.
