Make the top three in the autumn Style Awards and this is what you’ll win:




Velvet editor Alice Ryan has been writing about fashion and beauty for more than a decade and judging race-day best-dressed competitions for almost as long. A journalist of 20 years' standing, she has edited a series of regional lifestyle magazines and also writes nationally on a freelance basis. When it comes to style, her hero is the late, great British designer Alexander McQueen, whose clothes "were timeless and boundary-pushing in equal measure, while truly empowering their wearer as all great fashion should". For Alice, a winning Style Awards outfit will not only be polished, but also full of personality.


Lauren is a Fashion Designer for the luxury footwear and lifestyle brand, Fairfax and Favor, who are one of the proud partners for this Autumn's style awards. Alongside fashion, Lauren’s biggest passion is horseracing. Lauren said “I could not be more excited to be one of the judges at this year’s Dubai Future Champions Festival, not only do I adore racing but Newmarket is my local track and I rarely miss a meeting here”.
