Seryna Veng is unequivocally a girl on fire. On trend and truly stunning, it’s no surprise Seryna has racked up a loyal following who turn to her to nail the season’s key looks. From feminine off-the-shoulder ensembles, polished elegant evening wear, through to urban street strength, Seryna hits a home run with a playful prowess we can’t help but admire. Just ask one of the many followers who nominated her: “She can pull off basically anything and inspires me to experiment with styles out of my comfort zone,” they said.

Having worked in the hairdressing industry for more than 10 years, Chloe Zara is a seasoned veteran when it comes to spying and styling power pieces, achieving weekend chic and causing an uproar of outfit (and lifestyle) envy. #jelly

Nami and Pascale are the BFFs behind the ‘Serendipity Ave’ powerhouse brand. Fuelled by countless soy lattes, the duo’s online presence dips into all things fashion and lifestyle to deliver inspiration to more than 17k followers. Nami and Pascale have built their squad through selling a curation of carefully selected fashion pieces they swear by and totally dominate the #girlboss life with their fearless go-getter attitude paired with plenty of investment items. One nominator says of the duo: “They always look amazing, mixing high and low pieces effortlessly. I am obsessed with their outfits and Instagrams.” Ummm… same here!

Laura Hadlow | @laurahadlow

Not just a pretty face, Laura Hadlow is determined to understand and inspire her followers making her one worthy finalist for the Miss FQ x Colgate Optic White Influencer Awards.

It’s no wonder Laura’s one of our finalists!

Aki Ang | @thesleekavenue

This globetrotting Kiwi’s sense of style is so elaborate it hurts. Bringing high-end pieces and bold pairings to the forefront, Aki Ang’s “more is more” philosophy has her follower’s heads spinning as her “style and talent provoke nothing more than pure envy,” – so says one fan. Every post has been painstakingly composed and signals her dedication to the cause. ‘The Sleek Avenue’ presents fashion as a way of life, an art, a religion and a cultural experience. In the right place at the right time, this fashionista is running one super sleek operation making her a hot contender in the 2017 Influencer Awards.
