– more fashion-forward than everSingapore, 16 November 2015 – Into its 19th year, Female’s annual flagship event, Female GP (Gorgeous People) continues to shine the spotlight on those with IT factor and social influence, with a twist. This year, Female GP will further highlight the magazine’s focus on fashion. Introducing Female GP: The Best Dressed Edition, will highlight Singapore’s savviest dressers. The open call on Instagram garnered almost 1,000 entries, from which top 20 candidates, 10 women and 10 men, where singled out. Their backgrounds range from fashion buyer to modern day craftsman.For the past weeks, the 20 candidates have been posting their OOTDs (outfit of the day) on http://www.femalegp.sg/2015/, where the public can vote for their favourite looks. One male and female winner will be chosen by Female editor Noelle Loh and a panel of judges based on the OOTDs as well as interviews – not to mention their innate sense of style. Noelle said: “We're not looking for a specific style of dressing. What we want to discover are people who love fashion and are not afraid to have fun with it. They know how to make clothes and accessories work for their personality and lifestyle, and are comfortable and confident in what they wear. That to us is the definition of best dressed.”Diana Lee, General Manager of fashion and beauty titles at SPH Magazines, said: “The focus on personal style works perfectly with Female’s DNA as a publication for the fashion-forward global reader. This year’s GP underscores the magazine’s authoritative voice on all things fashion and beauty.”The PreviewFemale collaborated with Robinsons to allow the finalists to curate their own looks from its stable of brands. The results appeared in the print and digital editions of the November 2015 issue, while the behind-the-scenes action was shared with the public on the LED screen on the façade of Robinsons The Heeren from Oct 6 to 21.
