2018 Z Best Dressed List Maker: Melanie Sutrathada
“When she’s not on-camera as an actor or host, Melanie can be found planning her next trip, searching NYC for the best Mexican food, or binge-watching “The Mindy Project” on Hulu. Melanie believes in taking the scenic route, throwing kindness around like confetti, and leaving a little sparkle wherever you go. “ ~ Melanie Sutrathada
A little about the moment that Melanie’s first realized her passion for fashion:
I’ve always known that I loved fashion and style, but could never pinpoint exactly where that love began…until I found a picture of myself at age 5 during winter in red lipstick and a blue and white polka dot bathing suit with peplum detailing. What can you say? I guess when you know you know (;
Leanne Marshall is one of my favorite designers of all time. Everything she creates feel ethereal, feminine and beautiful!
The place of fashion in Melanie’s life:
Fashion and style make getting ready every morning so much more fun and really help to make Melanie feel more confident. A great pair of shoes or an amazing dress can work wonders!
I love a good faux leather jacket and wear mine almost every day! They’re so versatile and can be paired with just about anything for instant style points.
We asked Melanie, “ if you could trade your entire closet with any woman in the world, who would it be?”
Does Blair Waldorf count? Even though “Gossip Girl” is over, I’m still obsessed with Blair!
“And would you actually do it?”
And, speaking of grabbing someone’s style from their closet, many of the Trench members (aka Trenchies) state that one of the things they like most about being part of the Never Ending Closet community is being fashionable while being very environmentally conscious and sustainable.
Melanie told us about the meaning of fashion sustainability to her.
Sustainability in fashion plays a huge role in the way that I shop. We only have one world and it’s our responsibity to make sure our purchases reflect our values.
And to wrap up, a fun fact about Melanie:
I’m a huge fan of the entire Harry Potter series and am still secretly waiting for my Hogwarts letter.
