Emmanuelle Alt's First French Vogue Cover Revealed

Remember the good old days, pre FW2011 Fashion Week when the biggest news was that Carine Roitfeld was leaving French Vogue and being replaced by her fashion director Emmanuelle Alt? Seems like ages ago, right? Long before Nazi-loving rants and endless whispers of an impending musical chair switcheroo of major designers at French labels. But now that the dust is slowly starting to settle, we can give you an update on the latest from French Vogue, a story we've been following closely from the beginning.

Behold the magazine's first cover under the direction of new EIC Emmanuelle Alt featuring Gisele Bundchen in a white, sheer, lacy dress shot by photography duo Inez van Lamsweerde & VinoodhMatatin. This is definitely a softer, more feminine look for the magazine, which was racy, sleek and sexy under Roitfeld's reign. It looks like the magazine may just have a different feel now the self-proclaimed 'Queen of Porno' has left the building.

Speaking of her leaving the building, Hint Magazine -- who has been running its mouth all fashion week with lots of gossip, but not a lot of sources -- is reporting that Roitfeld was shunned from front rows from Paris to New York as to promote Alt's new title. But fret not, says Hint, Carine has big plans cooking -- to either helm the soon-to-be-launched French version of Harper's Bazaar or to serve as consultant to a label with pal Hedi Slimane (possibly Yves Saint Laurent? Who knows at this point).

All very interesting, but all speculation at the end of the day. Someone call us when the contracts are signed. Geez!
