Michelle Addison is Many Women

Michelle Addison is many women. 

She is a wife and mother to a 14 year old girl, and is (mostly) enjoying the changes that come with parenting a teenager… let’s just say that she is trying to “lean in”.  

She is one of Canada’s top fashion stylists, known for her down-to-earth sartorial approach and talent for fusing eclectic runway pieces with wallet-friendly favourites. Michelle helps inspiring women–from stay-at-home moms to business professionals and celebrities–with personal shopping and wardrobe design.

She is a business owner. Michelle has owned and operated her business, Michelle Addison Style, for over a decade. She wears many hats as an entrepreneur, from marketing and client relations to closet work and photoshoots. She does it all in pursuit of a life that is both creatively and financially fulfilling. 

She is a film and television actress. After deciding to lean back into her acting career a few years ago, she’s set to star in Family Law, So Help Me Todd, and the upcoming Movie of the Week titled The Best Version of Love in the Spring. In the latter, she plays a TV Host, a role for which she was able to draw real-life inspiration from her time on CTV Morning Live fashion segments. 

She is quintessentially West Coast. When she’s not shopping for a client or for herself, you can find her surfing in Tofino, working out with friends at Turf, walking her dog Harley through the endowment lands at UBC, or adventuring with her family. Her husband has a passion for flying, and the three are known to bop about our beautiful province in pursuit of new places, hikes, and adventure, by plane.

Michelle Addison is each of these women, and her positive aging plan fits the sum of each and every one of her parts. 

Michelle’s early beauty influences can be attributed to both her mother… and the French. In her younger years you’d often find her reading French magazines and taking notice of models with laugh lines and beautiful definition. These images influenced her perception of aging, and instilled in her a desire to do so gracefully. As for her mother, she was simultaneously teaching Michelle to care for her skin. She took her for facials as a teen struggling with breakouts, and instilled in her the importance of wearing sunscreen, warning that you can’t get back the damage that we do to our skin… a woman after our own hearts! 

When Michelle met Dr. Humphrey and the team at Humphrey & Beleznay Cosmetic Dermatology, she was in search of the whole package. She quickly found that Dr. Humphrey approached skin health in the same way Michelle had always approached styling or preparing to play a character on TV: by asking questions, getting curious, and looking at the whole picture. Some of the questions Michelle asks her personal styling clients are similar to those Dr. Humphrey asked in her very first consultation: What do you do on a regular basis? What climate do you spend most of your time in? What parts of your body do you love? What would you like to accentuate? 

Michelle embarked on her 360° treatment plan in her early thirties, a decision she credits for the current health and of her skin in her forties. She has remained committed to regular treatments with Dr. Humphrey, and a simple at-home skincare routine that includes medical-grade cleanser, moisturizer, sunscreen, and retinol. In this new decade, the goal of her treatment plan is skin that looks and feels healthy, and addressing skin laxity with skin tightening; goals that are well within her reach thanks to the time and commitment she and Dr. Humphrey dedicated to her skin over the past decade. 

She’s not striving to be the perfect woman—because that woman doesn’t exist. A 360° plan need only fit the one beautiful soul it belongs to… and there is only one Michelle Addison.
