Gisele Bündchen will star on new editor Emmanuelle Alt's first Vogue Paris cover.

Carine Roitfeld may be out but life goes on at Vogue Paris.

New editor in chief Emmanuelle Alt—formerly the magazine's fashion director—surfaced at the January 24 Alexis Mabille couture show, and so have a few details about what to expect during her reign.

Though Alt's full editorial influence won't be felt until the August issue, the April edition of Vogue Paris will reportedly be the first to carry her name at the top of the masthead.

And while Roitfeld has given readers a double dose of Dutch blondes with her latest Daphne Groeneveld and Lara Stone covers, April will mix it up with a different supermodel face.

Gisele Bündchen has posed for Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matatin in St. Barts for the hotly anticipated cover, WWD reports.

Though former Vogue Paris creative director Fabien Baron has hinted in the past that Alt's vision will be more commercial and accessible than her predecessor, don't write off Bündchen's hiring as an easy, conventional move. After all, the Balenciaga Spring/Summer 2011 campaign is plenty proof that the Brazilian supermodel can do edgy as well as the next girl.

We're sad to see Roitfeld go … but we also can't wait to see what Alt has in store for us.
