VIDEO: 20-year-old Madelaine Diamond from Ryde reached the top 12 in a nationwide competition for up and coming stylists, but needs your help to reach the final and be in with the chance of winning £10,000 and a trip to The Big Apple.
The Stylist.co.uk competition in association with Ford Fiesta invited stylists to post an Instagram photo of a look that they had styled. Amazingly, Maddie gained over 2,500 likes on the photo which pushed her into the top 12 contestants from across the UK.
Following this amazing achievement in itself, Maddie was invited to London for a photoshoot to model two looks that she had styled – one ‘arrivals’ outfit and another which was themed ‘Florals’. The final 12 contestants were split into three groups of four stylists, each group with there own theme. From there, a panel of judges had to select a winner from each category to go to the final round.
Unfortunately, Madelaine found out this morning (Monday) that she hasn’t been selected from the other three ‘florals’ contestants. However, one girl from the remaining contestants still has the chance to get to the final through a public vote on the Stylist magazine website.
Currently Madelaine is in 5th place. It is still possible that the Islander will reach the final where she will have to style three outfits.
