>> After six months in office as Vogue Paris's editor-in-chief, Emmanelle Alt — who spent a decade as the magazine's fashion director — tells Vogue: “It is really strange, editing the magazine; it’s like decorating an apartment you have lived in for ten years already.”
One of the first things the six-foot, 44-year-old editor installed in her new office? An iPod sound system, as she likes to have music — think Michael Jackson, ABBA, disco, and David Bowie — playing as she works. "People say to me, ‘Oh, my God, your iPod!’ But I think a lot of us love the stuff of our teenage years,” she explains.
And the musical leanings extend to her out-of-office duties, too: “I love to dance, I love to sing. After a shoot, I like to do karaoke. David [Sims, the photographer] likes it, too. And Kate [Moss]. In the studio, when you’ve been working hard all day, it’s such good energy to just play around.” She and Moss tend to duet on “No More Tears (Enough Is Enough),” by Donna Summer and Barbra Streisand, Alt says, with Alt on Streisand's part and Moss on Summer duty.
