Emmanuelle Alt


We all have them - style crushes - and among mine is Emmanuelle Alt, the Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris. If you're on Pinterest, you've seen her before. The six-foot lanky beauty, who doesn't wear makeup ($!?#) and hasn't had surgery, masters the parisienne chic look effortlessly. You'll often find her clad in jeans, a t-shirt, and a blazer - minimal at its best. It has me rethinking my entire approach to getting dressed, because wouldn't it be amazing if we could just look like that everyday? Check out some inspiration on how to get Emmanuelle's look below.

2015 Oscar Dresses

So I didn't watch most of the Oscar's this year, but I did take the time to roundup some of my favorite dresses. This year, I thought there was more I didn't like than those that I was completely wowed by - did anybody else feel this way? So here it goes...

(Above) Emma Stone and Jennifer Aniston. The embellishment on Emma's dress was amazing in my opinion and Jennifer's was such a flattering nude, she never does wrong in my book.
