Givenchy International Public Relations Director

Caroline Deroche Pasquier is the definition of Parisian chic, effortlessly mixing vintage YSL and Alaïa with no-name t-shirts and Converse—and her sons Jean and Martin have clearly inherited her innate sense of style.

CAROLINE ON MOTHERHOOD: These little men we are raising need the right “keys” to live a good life. We are here to give them confidence, independence and respect for themselves. It’s not always easy, but it’s the most rewarding thing in life.

FAVOURITE PART OF THE DAY: I love going out with my older son, just the two of us—sometimes we go to the cinema or to a concert. With Martin, I love the morning when he comes into our bed, right in the middle of us, and cuddles.





Julie Bowen stars as Claire Dunphy on popular sitcom Modern Family. While Claire’s approach to motherhood errs on the side of overbearing, Julie’s MO is much more mellow. She finds true happiness in being a mum to her rambunctious, blond-haired beauties. The result? Manicures and pedicures fall by the wayside in favour of digging in the dirt and jumping in the pool.

I am deeply involved with my kids, which gives me less time to be deeply involved in me. That’s OK.

I was deeply involved in me for three decades! I am happy to have these little people who demand so much, even though it means that in some areas my quality of life (sleep, food, hair colour) is diminished.

Best part: They are pure joy and pure challenge all the time. There is no balance. There is only the next crisis in front of me.

MINNIE ON MOTHERHOOD: It just keeps getting better. I keep thinking, OK, now this is my favourite age; it can’t get any better than this, but it does!

TREASURED ROUTINE: Eating dinner as a family every night. You don’t need to cook, but set the table, sit down at the same time and get up at the same time.
