I’m nothing of a fashionista, and this is not a fashion blog.  On most days, I go around looking like I’ve just emerged from a four-hour proctored exam, or a swamp.  My mother is constantly threatening to nominate me for that slightly obnoxious wardrobe fix-up show What Not to Wear, and my hair is in a perpetual state of messy.  Despite my lack of personal style though, I think I can still recognize sartorial elegance when I see it, and Melanie Utzmann Huynh definitely has that elegance going on.

Melanie Huynh was a junior editor at the ever influential Vogue Paris under Carine Roitfield, the former editor-in-chief of Vogue Paris who left the magazine in December 2010.   From what I’ve read, Melanie is half-Vietnamese, half-French, and she also left Vogue Paris recently to work as a freelance stylist.  Nevertheless, she remains a perennial favorite in the fashion world, sitting front row at top fashion shows and showing up as a frequent subject on fashion blogs.

You can check out some of the editorials Melanie styled at fashiongonerogue.com, and a short interview with the NYT here.  Gorgeous, don’t you think?  Maybe Vogue readers can tell us more about Melanie, and who she’s styling for lately.
