    Fantastic. Love the androgyny of this pic, she does ‘masculine’ beautifully.

    Don´t know who she,but she looks and dresses quite ordinarily.Am I missing something?

    She always looks great. More than that, I love this shot. Walking down the street, cool rock chic, and her beautiful smile. Wonderful!

    Rock & roll chic. I absolutely love her leather jacket paired with the skinny jeans.

    I assume you mean impossibly cool, impossibly chic, etc, etc!

    Classic. This look may enjoy little variations here and there over the years but it never goes out of style.

    The perfect rainy day gear.

    That is, if someone hasn’t set up a rubber boots concession ’round the corner.

    Really wonderful, and the amazing leather jacket and the high heels really just finishes of the look and makes it even cooler. Love it!

    She’s got Vogue Paris written all over her. I love to see her actually wearing the magazine’s style.

    this feels very done, over. hasn’t ashlee simpson been dressing like this for at least a year now? Alt may be the original, but the look is stale.

    Since everyone is throwing out musicians, my first thought was Francoise Hardy. :)

    I love all the straight lines in this outfit.

    more than her (gorgeous) i love this shot.

    i love the zebra crossing stripes, the stairs, the rain, the european streets and the fact that she’s walking confidently amidst all of it.

    for sure, Emanuelle Alt looks great on it but, if it wasn t for her, would there be so many ‘bravos’ in the comments? I like the anonymous person saying ‘ i don t know who she is and i find her dressed ordinarily’… honestly, I m not sure that i would turn my head back if I see someone I dont know dresses like that in the street…
    I personally think what makes her look so great is 90% her ‘so cool’ attitude & the way the picture is taken and only 10% the clothes…

    well, michael… you’re faster than i am… it’s cee-cee ramone for me, tho.

    She is one of my two favorites, among your subjects. She has “perfect pitch,” so to speak. But that is such a great picture! The sleek pavement, control of the depth of field, composition–Wow!!

    i imagine this is what the ramones clothes looked when they were new, bfore 20 people had worn them, bfore they wound up with the ramones. it’s fantastic!
    rock n’ roll can be elegant after all!

    There are scores of girls who dress like this here in Paris. Chic and cool but unexceptional when seen on so many. Sorry Mme Alt.

    I’m so jealous, I’ve been looking for the perfect leather “Perfecto” for years but those are sooo expensive!

    I was wondering why Mrs. Emmanuel Alt is characterized as ‘impossible’? Thanks …

    ok, nice to see we can still wear skinny jeans and not get the smack down…i really don’t think they are “out” i don’t believe in trends…

    i think that is a Balenciaga jacket from Fall 07.

    Just a comment – one of the wonderful aspects of this blog is the variation in reactions to different looks. I love, love, love Ms. Alt’s look, it is so not-trying-too-hard yet cool. On the other hand, the previous photo of the woman in red actually made me feel ill.

    …and not a “milanian” or Milanese look at all. Really more of a Paris-New York or French/American look. Perfectly cool, understated, everything fitting perfectly. You notice her, not her clothes.

    I don’t care who it’s on and how many times it’s been seen–it’s more sexy and feminine than all the floofy dresses put together–the look to aspire to.

    Sart, did you see this in Cathy Horyn’s Sep 28 blog? Cool.

    At Versace, which was last night, I saw Emmanuel Alt from Paris Vogue. It was our first chance to speak all week. I told her Scott Schuman had done a nice picture of her on his blog The Sartorialist, and that he had called her “the impossible Emmanuel Alt.”

    “What does ‘impossible’ mean?” she asked.

    “It means hard to beat,” I said.

    Its just attitude and heart, both of which she clearly has plenty.
