Makeover! EL reader Kristi transformed for stunning shoot with StyleTribute – see the before and after photos

By: Susannah Jaffer

After managing to crawl out from underneath the huge pile of competition entries, we were delighted to announce the winner of our fabulous makeover prize last month; the lovely Kristi Mackintosh. Not only did she win a total restyle with StyleTribute,com, but she was given $300 to spend on clothes. And we’re not talking just any threads – we’re talking gorgeous pre-loved designer items. Because that’s what StyleTribute, the pros behind this shoot, are all about  – selling affordable designer items (to shoppers and also on behalf of their previous owners).

On the day, Kristi was given free reign to rummage through StyleTribute.com‘s warehouse. With styling advice from founder Stephanie and StyleTribute fashion stylist Camilla, Kristi whittled huge selection down to three strong looks. Then, it was into Kelly Bilimoria‘s makeup chair to get dolled-up for the shoot. Want to see the before and after snaps of Kristi’s stunning style transformation? YES! Read on…

Following the shoot, it’s no surprise that Kristi decided to spend her $300 voucher (and then some!) on her favourite pieces from the shoot. And here’s what she had to say about the whole experience:

‘I was surprised to hear I’d won the styling session but very excited. The experience started with trying on some of the gorgeous dresses. Camilla and Stephanie were great – picking out styles to suit me and a few dresses that I’d eyed on their website before too! Next was hair and make-up, and Kelly put me at ease straight away, talking me through the process and giving me a new hairstyle I wouldn’t have tried myself.

‘It was a bit embarrassing striking poses (with a few curious stares coming from the HDB building across the way!) but so much fun. It was a great day and I left with some fabulous dresses and new ideas for hair and makeup. Thank you StyleTribute!’
