>> Emmanuelle Alt, Vogue Paris's fashion director under Carine Roitfeld, has — as expected — been named Roitfeld's successor as editor-in-chief of the magazine. The change is effective Feb. 1, and Alt's name will appear at the top of Vogue Paris's masthead starting with the April issue, according to Condé Nast France chairman Xavier Romatet.
Romatet also indicated that under Alt's direction, there would not be radical change (The 43-year-old stylist has been with the magazine since late 2000, months before Roitfeld joined.). "Vogue Paris is doing very well, and I wanted to entrust the editorship to someone who can provide continuity while bringing new life," Romatet noted. "I give [Alt] full confidence to lead and embody this demanding and prestigious brand and let it live in all its dimensions, including digitally."
"It's a great honor for me, but also a great pleasure to be at the head of Vogue Paris, which I know very well," said Alt. "While working with very talented teams, I will task myself with developing the incredible potential of Vogue Paris." Alt will work closely with Vogue Paris deputy editor Olivier Lalanne, whose scope of editorial responsibilities has been widened to include Vogue Hommes International.
