Styling self-esteem

With confidence being the greatest accessory, B105’s Self-Esteem Team hit Westfield Carindale for a feel-good styling session.

Abby’s B105 Self-Esteem Team was treated to a night of styling and makeovers by seasoned professionals in April, to encourage confidence inside and out.

B105’s breakfast co-host Abby launched the campaign to encourage women to appreciate their inner worth, with the styling night helping them to look the part too.

The ten girls received makeovers from stylist Kellie Alderman, Style Magazine editor Claire Parviz and hair and make-up experts Kelly and Miranda from Stefan Hair Fashions.

Three girls styled with make-up, hair and clothes.

Knowing what suits your body shape and what fits best will go a long way for comfort, confidence and style! Triumph fitted all the women on the night and Kellie Alderman helped the girls rock their particular body shapes.

Kellie Alderman, Style Magazines very own style guru, shares her tips on what works with different body shapes.
