RedTracker| NYTimes Cathy Horyn shares a long chat about Emmanuelle Alt, the new editor of French Vogue, with touch points around Italian Vogue editor Franca Sozzani and the departed Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld.
Horyn speculates on the reasons behind Roitfeld’s departure; not much new on the topic, except to reaffirm that the December issue edited by Tom Ford really got Roitfeld in hot water.
Ms. Sozzani questioned the point of fashion shoots that make people look vulgar, specifically condemning a shoot (in the December issue of French Vogue, as it happens) that showed little girls in seductive clothes and makeup.
We regret reading that the two women are not speaking to each other. Read on With Emmanuelle Alt, French Vogue Charts a New Course.
