The announcement of Carine Roitfeld's successor as editor-in-chief of French Vogue is expected to arrive next week and industry insiders have named two prominent possibilities: Emmanuelle Alt and Virginie Mouzat. What do we know about each?
Alt is presently the magazine's Fashion Director and has been with the glossy since 2000. According to Jezebel, "She's also the woman who got Michael Jackson the Balmain hook-up -- remember when he was wearing all those runway samples just before he died?" She seems pretty close with Carine and the pair even worked together in the '90s at 20ans magazine.
Mouzat is the fashion editor of France's Le Figaro, where she's been since 1996. Racked heard rumors that Mouzat was in the running way back in mid-December. She has an extensive editorial background and has penned two novels: Une Femme Sans Qualités and La Vie Adulte. Jezebel writes, "She is reputed to be aloof and somewhat cold, and she likes to smoke and drink."
For us, it's pretty much a toss-up. Tell us who you think will be the next editor-in-chief of French Vogue.
