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.
The Imagist also hears that the cover shoot Chanel Iman and Jourdan Dunn were Twittering about also included Arlenis Sosa.
