emmanuelle alt delivers

There I was yesterday browsing the magazine shelves and suddenly this gorgeous red thing with Kate Moss on the cover was staring right at me and no other magazine stood a chance. A few minutes later I was out on the balcony in the sun, with red wine, baguette, green olives and cheese, savouring every single page, and my food of course. The photography, oh my! Let me just go ahead and say it: The May 2011 issue of Vogue Paris is everything it promises to be and more; Emmanuelle Alt has definitely found her rhythm as editor. Now I just need to find my French language rhythm to be able to enjoy it even more.

In editor's note Alt honours the memory of Elizabeth Taylor and includes a beautiful and summery photo of her. Alt's editorial featuring Kate Moss wearing haute couture, photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, is simply stunning, especially the black and white photographs where she's wearing Dior and Elie Saab. No one does it better than Kate (a clichéd view? I don't care). Another editoral by Alt features Malgosia Bela, photographed in black and white by Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, and it's fun, full of stripes, polka dots and even smiles. Love the smiles!

There are many other gorgeous editorials, short articles and appealing ads. Everything in this issue somehow connects so well; it's an issue which Alt and her team can be very proud of – totally worth buying.
