Brooke Testoni is proof that taking style risks pays off. Testoni's refreshing and original personal style, her elevated approach to trends, and ability to set the street style agenda is why we're naming her the Street Style Star of the Year. Every look has an unexpected and original detail that makes her stand out.

The Best Off-Duty Celebrity Style: Lara Worthington

There's no doubt that Lara Worthington has incredible style, but it's her ability to make simple outfits look runway-ready that nabs her the top spot. In recent years, Worthington has overhauled her look, nailing her signature style of all-black looks, denim, and structured separates. Take note.

The Best International Style: Mira Duma

A Love Is Blind

Mira Duma, founder of Buro 24/7, always gets it right. The publisher and street style star hovers between experimental and more casual looks, but every one is always on point.

The Best Model Style: Roberta Pecoraro

We're predicting there's a very bright and shiny modelling career ahead for Sydney girl Roberta Pecoraro. The model walked in more shows we can count at Fashion Week Australia, and on top of that, has the casual model-off-duty look down pat. Simply put, it's her basics like the perfect denim jacket, the simple black leather backpack, and jeans that fit just-right, that always make her look polished and effortless all at once.

The Best #InstaStar: Carmen Hamilton

Chronicles of Her

With 283,000 Instagram followers and counting, it’s undeniable that Carmen Hamilton of Chronicles of Her is a legit #InstaStar. The Sydneysider collects thousands of likes on her outfit posts (and it’s often the more casual looks that her followers can’t get enough of), and serves up endless inspiration while she’s at it.

The Best Street Style Beauty: Eleanor Pendleton

As editor and publisher of beauty website Gritty Pretty, it's unsurprising that Eleanor Pendleton has her street style beauty down pat. From a perfect hair tuck, to *that* bronzed glow, Pendleton serves up some major beauty inspo.

The Best Risk-Taker: Margaret Zhang

Margaret Zhang never misses an opportunity to make a style statement. She takes risks, tries new things, and always gets it right. Zhang proves that the unexpected can make the strongest style statement. Mixing blue and green? Your younger self would probably cringe, but look at how just right this is?!

The Best Shoe Game: Montarna McDonald

Montarna McDonald, founder of The Audience Agency has very good shoe taste. Always in the coolest shoes of the season, just at Fashion Week Australia we spotted her in Vetements Sock Boots ($1699) (pictured above), Proenza Schouler flats and these Gucci mules.

The Best Accessories: Nicole Warne

Nicole Warne isn't afraid of a good accessory, and knows the importance of the right shoes, bag, and jewellery. Whether she's dressed down or ready to hit the red carpet at Cannes, Warne always pulls together a perfectly styled look.

The Best Fashion Week Game: Nadia Fairfax

The best thing about Nadia Fairfax's style? Every look she steps out in is so different. We can all learn something from Nadia—treat every day as though it's fashion week. Wake up, throw on whatever you want to wear, and work it with confidence. 

The Best Sydney Style: Talisa Sutton

Talisa Sutton is a breath of fresh air on the Sydney street style scene. She embodies what Sydney style is. Relaxed, elevated, and chic all at once. Whether its an understated earring, or a stack of fine chains, no outfit is ever complete without the perfect finishing touch.
