Emmanuelle Alt Will Not Consult for Balmain, Isabel Marant Any Longer; Karl Lagerfeld Weighs in on Her Appointment

>> Under Carine Roitfeld, Vogue Paris's 2010 revenues were up 12 percent — which is likely why new editor Emmanuelle Alt isn't expected to make huge, sweeping changes to the magazine.

One major thing will be changing for Alt, however, now that she's taken on the role — her strong support and consulting roles as a stylist to Christophe Decarnin at Balmain and Isabel Marant? Kaput. In a statement, Conde Nast France said that Alt would be devoting herself exclusively to her new responsibilities as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris.

Fabien Baron weighed in on Alt's appointment at the end of last week, saying he thinks Alt might take the magazine more commercial, and now Karl Lagerfeld, who worked with the stylist on Chanel campaigns years ago, says he thinks Alt's strong style could be a double-edged sword: “Her style is her big shoulders, long legs, tight jeans, sleeves up to the elbow, one hip out. I personally like her. She’s a handsome French woman. She has a style, but is it enough to make a whole magazine?”

He added he would wait to have a look at her first few issues before passing judgment, but hopes that she brings change: “As editor in chief, she may blossom."
