Mama Muse – Meredith Melling Burke
We all know Anna, and I already put the spotlight on Sally, who has since moved over to the New York Times’ T Magazine, but my favorite new mama muse at Vogue has to be senior market editor Meredith Melling Burke.
She has a unique style that doesn’t seem completely unattainable for real women like you and I who only “do” Fashion Week from our iHomes in the suburbs.
She mixes high and low, street and chic, and really doesn’t do much with her hair beyond a blowout or a bun and still looks amazing.
She works. It may be Vogue, but there are still deadlines and bosses and inboxes (oh my!). Which means a lot to us working mamas, who have to manage two wardrobes – one for the office and one for play, and don’t want either one to be drab or predictable.
And most importantly, she’s a mom. A seemingly happy one. Who brings her kids to cool fashion parties — and hopefully gets them home on time for a bedtime story and a cuddle.
