Welcome to the fifth annual InStyle and Audi Women of Style Awards, also supported by Longines, Waterford and David Jones. In the years since these awards were founded, InStyle has honoured more than 100 successful, inspirational women who are making a difference across many fields.
How do we characterise a Woman of Style? We consider her to be an innovator and a leader – a woman who has made a significant contribution in her field, is actively involved in the community and who operates with integrity and compassion. She is a mentor to those who follow in her footsteps. She is intelligent, inspiring and engaging.
The 2013 nominees were announced on March 11 in the April issue of InStyle. You can read all about these inspirational women here as well as our Style Scholarship Finalists.
