Emmanuelle Alt: Off Duty

Emanuelle Alt: Off Duty

This 46 year old Parisian gal and editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris has the kind of style I envy. Truly envy. You'll normally find her looking flawless and sporting skinny jeans, a chic blazer and a pair of killer heels instead of a dress or skirt. That's my kind of girl! My favorite looks of hers? The many chambray button downs in her closet! Light chambray, dark chambray, long sleeve, no sleeve - she rocks them all. And in honor of Paris Fashion Week coming to an end, here's how I'd go about copying Alt's perfectly Parisian chic style.
p.s. How amazing is that rockstud leather cuff? Le sigh...
Alt fun facts:
1. She's a tall lady - as in 6'0" feet tall.
2. Her husband, Franck Durand, is the founder and creative director of Atelier Franck Durand - an advertising and art direction company that works with Isabel Marant, Balmain and more.
3. Her mother, Françoise, was a Lanvin and Nina Ricci model in the 60s and 70s.
