Summer is offish here, Shopcaders and you know what that means… it’s time for our July #StyleBattle™ to launch!

Last month’s winners, @styleskittle and @alexandertuffley1 took part in a VIP photo shoot at Shopcade HQ, to be be featured in WEARECOLLISION’s September Issue, and were given tickets to Wireless to enjoy some festi-fun in the sun!

For July, however we are going ALL out. We are stepping up our game and looking for only the most fierce and fabulous fashionistas to become the faces of July.

The winners will be featured all across our social media as the official faces of Shopcade, take part in their very own fashion photoshoot with celeb stylist Fabienne Hebrard, have their make-up done by the pros at Illamasqua, plus have their bouffant expertly quaffed by the artistic team at Rush Hair.

Phew! If that wasn’t enough, the winners will also be walking away with goody bags piled high with pieces from Villain, FYT & CO and more!

So, what do you need to do to win this awesome prize? Well, it’s pretty darn simple. In a nutshell, we want you to fill our app with your top looks on a daily basis!

There are a few rules you need to abide by however; it needs to be a full length look (no close ups of your chin or anything weird) and you MUST use the hashtag #stylebattle to qualify. For the full T&C’s check them out here.

Other than that, go mad! We want to see you all over our app 😉 Here’s the Style Council you need to impress this time around…

#StyleBattle™ Go Behind the Scenes | Photo Credit: Dani Riot Photography 

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.

Want to see more? Then here’s your Access All Areas pass! Take the tour with our very own Head UK Correspondent, Fabienne Hebrard below…
