Remember how Michael Jackson stepped out in a fall 2009 ladies’ Balmain top this week? Fall 2009 clothes aren’t in stores yet, so he’d have to have a connection to obtain it. That connection is reportedly Emmanuelle Alt, the fashion director of French Vogue. According to the Imagist, she is “100% obsessed with Michael Jackson.” Also, “Emmanuelle would weep” if Jackson wore Balmain for his comeback concerts. French Vogue is one of the most fashionable magazines in the world — if not the most fashionable. So if its fashion director is “obsessed” with Michael Jackson, that makes him, like, the Svengali of style. But no one said this industry made sense.
