Emmanuelle Alt Got the Jeans Memo

I love this look on Emmanuelle Alt. Photo by Tommy Ton.

Okay, let’s face it, Emmanuelle wrote the jeans memo. She could be the poster girl for Adrienne and I to promote “How I Wear My: Jeans” for November. And how does EA wear them? If like above, she pairs skinny black cropped (and cuffed!) denim with a quilted and belted black leather jacket (love love love), kitten heels, natural hair, and Cartier watch. She wore this ensemble during Paris Fashion Week last month.

I am convinced only EA could pull this off and still look so cool. Photo by YoungJun Koo.

She also wore this ensemble during Paris Fashion Week, featuring cuffed jeans, a white shirt, no belt (!), and black high heels. Sometimes I feel like she’s the only one who could get away with this particular version. I have to admit that I love that the editor-in-chief of French Vogue dresses this way. With all the crazy things people wear during fashion week it seems subversive and wonderful for EA to don a regular ol’ pair of blue jeans and a white shirt.

Do send a picture to me, or Adrienne, or to our email account howiwearmy@yahoo.com showing how you wear your jeans. We are accepting pictures until November 5. Join us!

Love too, that ea is a bit of a rebel at fashion wee! Couldnt agree with you more; xoxo
But french girls have a way of wearing their jeans, PERIOD. I remember in my hippie days, doing the urail, backpack europe tour, and the sexy way the french wore their jeans BACK THEN is etched into my memory!
Hope to take part next week~

Very inspiring photos! Your topic for this month has me reflecting on my stance with jeans. I have pulled some photos to send... and I am doing a jeans post for tomorrow to support the HIWM topic this month. i enjoy each monthly topic, as every time... it has given me moments of reflection ... or has inspired some new choices. .. I am still loving my fuschia neon flats!

Thanks to both you and Adrienne for providing this monthly fun!
