I have made no secret of my complete preference for Paris Vogue over America's prosaic counterpart. Emmanuelle Alt, fashion director of Paris Vogue and style guide to many of the premier European fashion houses, is a huge factor in my affection- and here's a great example of her genius. From the March 2010 issue, styled by Alt, photographed by David Sims, we have "COMMANDO":
Military inspiration? Check. Balmain? Check. Leather, studs, and shredded within an inch of its life? Check. I'm in love. With Mme Alt and this entire ed.
