French stylist, PHILIPPE UTER, is known for his chic aesthetic, impeccable tailoring and attention to detail. As a graduate of Yves Saint Laurent’s school, the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, Philippe, is first and foremost a stylist.
He began his career assisting on shoots for publications such as GQ Russia and collaborating with peer and friend in the industry, Monica Pillosio, working on creative art direction for luxury design houses such as Longchamp, Elie Saab and Manish. Soon after, he was inspired to venture off as a freelance stylist so he could work on a myriad of projects in the industry, including the opportunity to contribute to notable publications such as Vogue (France, Japan, China, and India), Numero, L’Optimium, Fiasco Magazin, among others.
Philippe was the Fashion Director for So Chic magazine at the age of twenty-five, an independent title with a distribution of over 65,000 copies worldwide and has worked on advertising campaigns for international brands like Giuseppe Zanotti, Breguet, and Moet & Chandon. He has been a featured styling host on TV in France on several occasions and has styled high-profile French actresses and talent including Ludivine Sagnier, member of the jury for the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and Alexandra Golovanoff, a very popular French TV host.
Looking for bigger challenges, Philippe left Paris in December of 2014 and shortly after, he collaborated with celebrity stylist, Michaela Erlanger, for the 2014 Awards Season. Since then he has built a loyal celebrity clientele in Hollywood including Jackie Cruz, Ashley Roberts, Karolina Kurkova, Toni Garrn, Ludivine Sagnier, Ian Bohen, and Tyler Hoechlin.
Philippe aims to contribute new ideas to the fashion world and find happiness in every endeavor. He is currently based in Los Angeles, CA and is the US correspondent for Vanity Fair France.
