When it comes to style, the French really do have that certain je ne sais quoi. So who better to play copy cat with than Emmanuelle Alt, editor in chief of Vogue Paris.
I’ve always admired Emmanuelle’s restrained approach to fashion. She’s frequently photographed wearing what seems to be her uniform: skinny jeans, a solid tee or button down, a blazer, and a great pair of heels. It’s a simple enough combination that I’m sure we all have some variation of in our closets, but I swear I’ve never seen anyone look more chic wearing it.
The above look is one of my all time favorites. Same staple pieces, just topped off with one incredibly fabulous coat. A leopard/cheetah print coat has been on my wish list for years. I actually bought one off of etsy a few years ago but unfortunately it arrived three sizes too big and was more appropriate for emulating a pimp on Halloween than a French editor of Vogue.
Enter this cheetah coat by Malene Birger–the most perfect animal print coat ever to be created. I’m convinced that although an investment, this would be a timeless piece I’d get many years of mileage out of. Don’t you agree?
