Emmanuelle Alt — Vogue Paris "Will Be the Same, But Different"

>> Hilary Alexander caught up with Emmanuelle Alt after the Chanel couture show yesterday, marking Alt's first interview since her appointment as Vogue Paris editor. Alt revealed that she plans to attend London Fashion Week this season (which former Vogue Paris editor Carine Roitfeld rarely did), and that she hadn't dreamed of being Vogue Paris editor before the opportunity was presented to her: "I never thought about my future. I'm not somebody looking at tomorrow, I really live like today. So I never thought about it, but it was like — why not? It's great news!"

And despite her personal leanings toward rock and roll style, Alt maintains, "The magazine is not going to be like that — only rock and roll. French Vogue today is a successful magazine and it has a strong identity, so it will probably stay along the same lines. But, I mean, some things will change of course, because we have a different eye — It will be the same, but different!"
