Style Inspiration: Emmanuelle Alt

Since I am still in the mood for Paris, it’s the perfect time to pay tribute to one of the most stylish Parisian: Emmanuelle Alt. Known for her rock ’n’ roll style – big-shouldered jackets, skinny jeans and killer heels. Alt is the very definition of tough yet sophisticated chic.

Frankly, being a very ordinary and uncool gal, I can’t see myself pulling off something this edgy (I do can imagine how awkward I’ll look then, rofl). However, this doesn’t bother me to admire her sense of style, she found something works for her and make it her own signature.

Everybody wants to look as cool as her, but no one embodies edgy rock style with an attitude like her. So maybe the best advice from the new editor in chief of Vogue Paris is: get inspired but find you own style. ;-P We all know there is only one Emmanuelle Alt, but there is only one of you & me as well…

    I’d say you’ll pull off her look more than I can. I’ll have to grow an extra 6 inches, lose 8kgs and get a tan.

    Hope you had a wonderful time in Paris and found some fabulous buys (sticking to your resolutions, of course)!!

    Even if you don’t pull off big shoulder jackets, your style posts are definitely classic with an edgy twist! Keep doing what you’re doing because it’s great! :o)

    ccc: me??? I can only pull off her look in my dream. lol~~

    purseaddict: thanks a lot my dear!<3 We had a lot of fun in Paris.

    As for the new buys, I’ve commented in my last post: only three and all in neutral colors. I think I’ve been pretty good regarding the resolutions. :-)

    I agree with you. Very few persons can pull off this edgy style with ease.
