Emmanuelle Alt has recently been named editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris, replacing Carine Roitfeld who recently resigned after ten years of dedication to the company. Naturally, the fashion world was taken by surprise after Roitfeld announced her resignation. Many asked questions regarding her reason for leaving and of course who would take her place.
The announcement was made by the president of Conde Nast France, Xavier Romatet, who confirmed Emmannuelle Alt will take over the position starting February 1, 2011. Alt is famous for being a fashion stylist world wide and has worked as a fashion director, along side Carine Roitfeld, with Vogue Paris since 2001.
