Spotted at Roberto Cavalli: Emmanuelle Alt’s Model Doppelgänger


Watching the models shoot down the runway at this morning’s Roberto Cavalli show, we found ourselves doing a triple take at look 41. Is that a young Emmanuelle Alt? It was Brazilian up-and-comer Muriel Beal (pictured), who we also saw at Emporio Armani on Thursday as well as Proenza Schouler and Theyskens’ Theory during NYFW, but with those razor-edged cheekbones, that shock of dark hair, the spray of freckles—there’s no denying Beal’s resemblance to the lanky Paris Vogue editor. It’s not the first time we’ve noticed doppelgängers for fashion’s power players on the catwalks, either. In-demand Marie Piovesan would easily pass for a young Marie-Amélie Sauvé, while we’ve imagined Kel Markey to be Carine Roitfeld’s long-lost love child.

Countdown To Carine


“It’s a big return, no?” Carine Roitfeld says of the upcoming debut issue of her CR Fashion Book. We wouldn’t expect the former Paris Vogue editor to do things any other way. She’s been keeping most of the details of her new biannual magazine (out next month) under wraps, but got a first look at the making of CR in this exclusive video before it launches on later today.

Bündchen Or Bust


Like many events in the past week, David Yurman’s summer soirée last night was at risk of being a bit of dud thanks to the wet weather. But the rainstorms earlier in the day didn’t seem to have Yurman fretting in the slightest about the fate of his annual rooftop party at his downtown New York headquarters. As he came out of his office to join the crowd, Yurman (pictured, left) said, “We should be fine. I’m going to go on up and see what it’s like, the weather is normally so nice.”

Before making their way upstairs to take in the sweeping views of the city, guests (including Carine Roitfeld and Stephen Baldwin) circled the room to check out the jeweler’s latest collection. “I love the big cuffs and the look of the new collection. There is something really Saint-Tropez about it—I idolize David Yurman,” said Nicole Trunfio (pictured, right), who revealed she has been busy for the past year and a half creating her own jewelry line, set to launch next month. “We are just doing the finishing touches now. The staple piece is like a mix between the Cartier Love bracelet and the Pandora. When I first drew it up, they said it was impossible and would never work. We have had to do it over five times now!” she explained.

Though there were plenty of sparkling baubles on show last night, both in the glass cases and on the partygoers, even Yurman was quick to highlight the real gem of the night: “Why talk about jewelry? Let’s talk about Gisele.” Though the supe (who is reportedly expecting another child) was not on hand, images of her Fall ad campaign for the label were everywhere, along with an accompanying video that made its official debut at the party. “I have to say, some of these images might be in my top ten favorites out of all the campaigns we have done in the past 11 years,” he told “In the middle of the second day of the shoot, her husband shows up with the two kids and the dogs. I talked to Tom Brady and I said, ‘You know, I am from New York, what happened in that game and what do you guys call the Giants these days?’” Brady’s response, according to Yurman: “The Bums, like the Brooklyn Bums.”

The Givenchy Gang


Last season, Gisele led the pack at Givenchy, but Riccardo Tisci already has a new set of stars. Replacing Bündchen is Stella Tennant, who is featured in the campaign image (above) the label released this morning, along with Joan Smalls, Stef van der Laan, Daniela Braga, Simone Nobili, Jarrod Scott, and Rodrigo Braga. Of the Fall 2012 shots, lensed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott and styled by Carine Roitfeld, Tisci tells WWD, “It is about happiness and the freedom of expressing yourself with your body. It shows a dynamic, happy, and fun world, which is what fashion needs.” Of the British stunner, he says, “Stella represents modernity, elegance, masculinity, and femininity at the same time, together with a dynamic, energetic beauty.”
