Vogue Paris editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt is the owner of the exact breed of Parisian style you'd imagine a French fashion expert to have in their DNA: Her wardrobe effortlessly revolves around a few chosen items that fit perfectly and work in hundreds of different outfit options. She is the very personification of cost-per-wear and is a great muse for any girl looking to streamline her collection into a capsule closet.
We've closely watched Alt and her fashion choices over the years (while she's not the most willing street style star, no photographer can help themselves when she strides through the Jardin des Tuileries) and rarely has the insider stepped out of a never-fail four-piece formula we've noted.
While her specific silhouettes, colours, fabrics and styling tweaks may vary between seasons, a handful of items see Alt through fashion month after fashion month, year after year. Many of these key items come from the French fashion brands Alt consults for—two of the biggest, in fact, Isabel Marant and Balmain—but she has admitted to buying jeans from Topshop, and you'll mostly spot her in Saint Laurent shoes.
