New French Vogue Editor-in-Chief Emmanuelle Alt sat down with Women's Wear Daily to discuss the first issue of her reign, which hits newsstands March 25. Alt noted that she cut down on the amount of skin showing -- quite a contrast from the work of her predecessor Carine Roitfeld who recently described herself as "the queen of porno chic."
"I want to show in French Vogue more and more a lot of clothes," [Alt] said.
Flicking through a binder showing off a shoot of Anja Rubik by Hans Feurer, Alt arrived at a page of the model reclining, her blouse open and a nipple in plain sight. "One boob," she said, holding up a finger and flashing a big smile: "Otherwise, you don't recognize it's French Vogue."
Well, merci dieu. Nudity aside, Alt said she hopes the glossy becomes very feminine and that she enlists the help of more young stylists.
