Emmanuelle Alt wearing J Brand Lexington in Shadow
I'm so not ready for Carine Roitfeld to slink into the shadows (as if she ever could), but I am excited to embrace Emmanuelle Alt as the new Editor of French Vogue. Emmanuelle Alt has that certain, very French fashion sense that is slightly disheveled, but amazingly chic. Ok, and being a total jean queen myself, I love that Emmanuelle Alt is frequently snapped wearing jeans to fashion-centric occasions. I love a Vogue editor who wears jeans to work more than once in a lifetime (Anna, I'm looking at you).

Emmanuelle Alt recently attended the French Vogue/ Gucci dinner in honor of Gucci designer Frida Giannini wearing jeans! [Insert fashionista gasp here] Actually, she looked stunning, jeans and all. Want to steal Emmanuelle Alt's chic black jeans style for yourself? She's wearing J Brand Lexington Jeans in Shadow wash. For the record, the singular time American Vogue Editor Anna Wintour wore jeans to a work event, she also chose J Brand. I'm sensing a Vogue pattern here.

J Brand Lexington Jeans are a classic boot leg cut jean featuring a slightly higher rise that has recently been referred to as an '80s rise. Basically, I think that means a rise that is higher than more modern cut jeans, but still lower than the '70s-inspired (9" - 12") rises that are suddenly all the rage. Unique, but if it's good enough for a Vogue editor...
