^ She's always a good reminder that I must mix navy and black together more often. And to find a great winter coat that is both fashionable and warm.

What a beautiful coat !! I think it's by Joseph Altuzarra. The Balenciaga boots are great too.

MELANIE UTZMANN HUYNH AND SCARLETT 4
FREELANCE FASHION STYLIST, PARIS


I have known Melanie for many years, and she is one of the most organized woman I ever met. Hard working, always impeccably dressed, and extremely hands on with her beautiful daughter Scarlett, I had to do a feature on her!

Melanie, you are one of the most organized person I know, especially when it comes to take care of your daughter. You work very hard, and have to travel a lot for work, but you manage to be a very devoted mom. Could you share some tips on how you manage to juggle so well between work and spending quality time with your daughter?


Organization is the most important when you have children.I am very lucky because I have great help : my nanny, my husband and my grand parents. Now I have decided to work from home, it is much easier to spend time with Scarlet even 15 min in between two meetings or appointment.I always plan activities or exhibition, theater or shows (spectacle) for Scarlett and book the tickets in advance online. I love to take her to Mickey Mouse show or the Babar show!

Do you have any rules? Such as a maximum of days away for example?

I don’t have any rules. I try to spend as much time as possible with my daughter. With my job, freelance fashion editor, it is always day by day, I would say.

You also travelled a lot with her since a young age. Do you have any tips on traveling? I found that traveling with Romy when she was an infant was much easier than today!

I guess you are right traveling with baby is much easier because they sleep and don’t move so much. When I am traveling, I am also very organize and have everything in my bag: clothes, medicine….. and also toys, pencils, dvd, books…..and my iPad of course.

What’s always in your bag no matter where you go, what are your essentials?

Wipes or hand sanitizer, tissues! Yes wipes, hand sanitizer from Wholefoods, tissues, Arnica (very important) and candies or chocolate. Also kid cutlery: small knife, fork and spoon.

What would be a perfect mother daughter day? What are your favorite things to do together?

Just a lunch with my daughter and my husband, maybe in a chinese restaurant, Scarlett loves chinese food!

Working in fashion, does Scarlett enjoy going shopping with you and play dress up?

We love cooking together since she is very young. Scarlett is not very girly and not really interested in fashion but from time to time she likes to go to Bonpoint or Gap.

What is your favorite clothing brand for Scarlett? Bedroom furniture? Toys/books?

My favorite clothing brand is Bonpoint of course, I think it is perfect for girls. I like to mix with others brands such as Gap, Zef, Fingers in the Nose, Ksubi denim.

For toys, I like to go at a shop called Le Bonhomme de Bois, it is mostly wooden toy such as the brand Moulin Roty and really interesting games. Also http://www.eveiletjeux.com, is the best website for toys.

For books, I love the kind of old fashion books with beautiful pastel drawings that I can find online on littlefashiongallery.com. I also the shop Il etait une fois rue Cassette.

For kids Jewellery, I love Arthus Bertrand.

For her bedroom furniture, I am crazy about Hermès, Bonton, liitlefashiongallery.com and Baudou Meuble. For Scarlet’s 5th birthday, we are getting her a new desk and a new bed.

You looked impeccable through your pregnancy. You didn’t change much your style, kept wearing your Balenciaga mini skirts and high heels. What was you “pregnant” favorite look. As a fashion editor, any style tips for pregnant women?

I tried to keep my style as long I could. I was lucky and did not put too much weight on. I love wearing fitted clothes and short length. I love high heels so I was wearing them until 6 or 7 months then after 7 months I was wearing lower heels. I think pregnant woman look so good in fitted clothes such as Alaia. Alaia clothes are perfect. The cut is amazing with lycra inside to keep a perfect body shape and feel comfortable at the same time, and also so chic!

What did you do during pregnancy to feel pampered, such as massages etc…

During my pregnancy, I liked to go for massage at Six Senses. They have a special massages for expecting mothers.This was heaven! I also went to see Martine de Richeville for massages targeting blood circulation and cellulite reduction.

I know you have a gym coach at home that comes to your house, how often do you work out?

I much prefer to have a coach it is the best. I usually try to exercise 3 times a week: classic danse, pilates and gym. I feel much more healthy and fit, especially waist and abs. I also run every sunday outside, it cleans my mind.

Did you work out during pregnancy? What kind of exercise? Any good address in Paris for it?

Yes, I worked out during my entire pregnancy, with soft exercises such as pilate and yoga. I was also walking a lot everyday.

And most important, any tips on how to get back your body?

No secret you have to exercise and eat healthy!! Especially Abs, waist and bottom. It is quick to get your body back into shape ! But before doing any exercise make sure you did your perineal reduction it is the most important thing!!!!! You need to have a good kinesitherapist

Thank you Melanie!

^ well keep in mind the only time we see pictures of her is during fashion week where everyone is exhausted and I doubt she even sees her daughter for a major of that time.

I think she is pregnant again, on her Instagram Julia Von Boehm left her a comment congratulating on her 2nd baby, this was in March/April. Guess we'll find out soon...
