The winners have been officially crowned and now it’s time to go behind the scenes of our AWESOME #StyleBattle™ photoshoot to see the gorgeous @zoegeorgiadis and @tobiamao in action!

Worthy winners, we’re sure you will agree, Zoe and Tobi rocked up last weekend to photographer and #StyleCouncil member, Dani Riot’s studio to experience their very own editorial fashion photoshoot for WEARECOLLISION magazine.

The theme was 90s grunge, with two time #StyleCouncil judge, Lee Stafford styling their hair and Yin Lee from AOFM Pro working on their make-up to make the shoot come to life.

Super stylist Sabina Emrit dressed the winners in Motel Rocks, Topshop, The White Pepper and pieces from Number Six with the results (see for yourself above and below in our behind the scenes vid) being absolutely amazing.

Fusing the 90s with a modern take on grunge as the main inspiration for the shoot, we loved Zoe’s dark lip but natural eye make-up, teamed with futuristic silver leggings and a cool crop top.

The accessories were awesome too- standout pendants, chunky necklaces, cut out ankle boots and retro round shades to complete the 90s look.
