Carla and Emmanuelle have been firm friends since their teens – but while Carla’s look has matured, she insists that her good friend Emmanuelle is still as girlish as ever thanks to her refusal to succumb to plastic surgery and heavy makeup.
Carla said about the Vogue editor: “There is still something of a teenager about her. Emmanuelle has an unaffected way to be feminine. She doesn’t wear make-up and hasn’t had surgery.”
Emmanuelle Alt has taken the helm at French Vogue after Carine Roitfeld’s reign as editor recently ended. As a well-shod expert on the sartorial, Emmanuelle was the perfect candidate to take over at the iconic magazine – and Carla Bruni agrees, saying that the editor knows what French women want from fashion.
She told Vogue magazine: “She reflects how French women are feeling – simplicity is the state we all want to be in. We are tired of useless sophistication.”
