Meet your Miss FQ Maybelline Influence Awards 2019 finalists: Style category

16 September 2019
By Fashion Quarterly

Our Style category finalists know a thing or two about looking good and keeping it stylish both on and offline.

Our Miss FQ Maybelline Influence Awards are in full swing and we are now counting down to our awards evening on September 26. We all know being stylish goes far beyond how you pull together an ensemble and this year has seen our most stylish finalists yet in the Style category.

From a sophisticated and on-trend outfit to a carefully curated, highly engaged and sleek online presence, they keep things fresh, authentic and fashion-forward – handling themselves in the classiest of ways both on the ‘gram and in person.

So are you ready to meet these fashionable faces? Check out our finalists in the Style category, as nominated by YOU:


She was one of the top models of NZFW 2019, walking in shows for Kate Sylvester, Zambesi, Stolen Girlfriends Club and Paris Georgia. When she’s not walking on the runway, she’s behind the scenes creating her own designs as a budding fashion student and with already so much experience under her belt, we can’t wait to see what’s to come for this future fashion star.


Creative, model and stylist, LA-based Jaime runs online fashion hub Dillion Dot which features style, beauty, coveted treasures and travel categories. She’s collaborated with some of the biggest names in fashion including Gucci, Bally, Dior and Tiffany and Co, and one glimpse of her beautifully curated feed will tell you she knows a thing or two about style.


Whether you’ve heard her on-air on The Edge Breakfast Show or seen her on Instagram dressed head to toe in a stylish ensemble, we can all agree Meg always looks flawless and put together whether she’s attending a black tie event, a festival or just cuddled up to her dog on the couch. Not to mention her shining personality comes through in everything she does, showing she is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside.


Sammy Salsa is one of New Zealand’s top stylists and even if you don’t know his face, you’ll definitely recognise his work, as his magical touch has graced many a magazine page, TV show and celebrity red carpet outfit. Having styled editorial pages for our very own sister brand Fashion Quarterly we can vouch that his work is nothing short of amazing. He’s also worked behind-the-scenes styling hosts and contestants for New Zealand X-Factor and Dancing With The Stars and works with celebrities such as Stan Walker. The man is busy!


Aki runs style website The Sleek Avenue with a large focus on photography and carefully curating images to perfection. She’s worked with some big international brands including Gucci, Farfetch and H&M and has been featured in multiple magazines including Harpers Bazaar, Vogue Paris and Elle South Africa.

Stay tuned to see who has taken out their category, announced September 26, 2019.
