 Mélanie Utzmann Huynh




I love Pairs Fashion Week not only for the amazing designers showing during this time but also because I get to see the whole dreamy Vogue Pairs team which includes Carine Roitfeld, Geraldine Saglio, Ludivine Poiblanc, Emmanuelle Alt and my favourite Mélanie Utzmann Huynh. Mélanie is the epitome of Parisian style, chic and effortless. Remember how great she looked during her pregnancy? This time I found something a bit different about her style and with some colour as well, but no less in perfection. She managed to wear even the harshest trends with such class. And it must be repeated that her body is incredible. I cannot believe that a baby fit in that tiny stomach!

Welcome back Mélanie

When Tommy Ton from JAK&JIL snapped Mélanie Huynh during Pairs Fashion week, I was thrilled. Half Vietnamese Mélanie is one of the dream team Vogue Pairs like Carine Roitfeld, Geraldine Saglio, Ludivine Poiblanc and Emmanuelle Alt. she is a junior editor and assistant to Carine Roitfeld. Unlike Carine’s fierce look which dabbles in extreme proportions, Mélanie’s style is like easy breezy, chic and accessible. She demonstrates a sort of restrained elegance and French-girl aptitude for looking completely comfortable and un-calculated. With Clean lines and dark palette, Mélanie often injects her look with a shot of edge, be it a shiny pattern skirt or mad oversized puffy, and she results in an effortlessly chic look.


What I admire most about Mélanie is that she is the most stylish girl ever with a baby bump. She translated to pregnancy style so well, without losing her personal style yet breaking some of the fashion rules. She often wore structured jackets which helped balance out the tight dresses that show off her belly. It’s a great way to downplay but still accommodate her changing form. She managed to strike a nice balance of being body conscious but also chic. She simply made pregnancy look so easy. Now she has delivered her baby and is back in the fashion scene. I’m eager to see how her style will change based on her new role as a mother.
