French Vogue fashion director Emmanuelle Alt appears to be the front-runner in the race to replace Carine Roitfeld, who resigned as editor-in-chief of the title right before the holidays. While Condé Nast France insists that no decisions have been made regarding Carine's successor, sources say an announcement about Alt will come next week. Fellow possible replacement Virginie Mouzat, the fashion editor of Le Figaro whose nude self-portrait appeared on Purple's blog, declined to comment. [WWD]
