General info :
Emmanuelle Alt (born 18 May 1967 in Paris, France) is a French fashion editor who was the editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris from February 2011, succeeding Carine Roitfeld, to May 2021.

Alt's mother, Françoise, was a Lanvin and Nina Ricci model in the 1960s and '70s. Alt herself studied at the Institut de l'Assomption in Paris,

Alt became fashion director of Vogue in 2000, when Roitfeld assumed the chief editor's position and hired Alt directly from Mixte magazine.

Prior to Mixte, she held positions at French ELLE (starting in 1984, she was only 17 years old) and then at 20 Ans where she became the editor-in-chief in 1993.

During Roitfeld's tenure the publication's 2010 circulation rose from 100,000 to 140,000, during the global financial crisis. The increase was probably encouraged by the magazine's content – much of it styled by Alt as well as Roitfeld – in a provocative manner that included a great deal of nudity and sadomasochistic appurtenances.

Alt's annual salary at French Vogue is about US$300,000 compared to the yearly US$2-million (in 2005) of her counterpart, American Vogue editor-in-chief Anna Wintour. However, the circulation of the American edition at 1 million-plus dwarfs that of the French edition of the publication.

Alt's first issue at the helm was April 2011. About her intentions for the future content of French Vogue, she stated: "I don't think there should be radical changes". And she intends to remain with the magazine's past stable of photographers, such as David Sims, Mert and Marcus, Mario Testino, and Bruce Weber.

Emmanuelle Alt has been dismissed as editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris in 2021. The firing is part of a giant overhaul of the glossy magazine publishing empire, which has seen Anna Wintour, Editor-in-Chief of American Vogue acquire even more power. In December 2021, Wintour was named Global Editorial Director of the magazine group, granting her control of scores of international editions.
