A campaign that was launched to find Milton Keynes Centre’s most stylish shoppers has crowned its winner.

As voted for by the people of Milton Keynes, Midsummer Place Shopping Centre has announced its Style Hero is Rachel Skinn who triumphed over the other 44 stylish contestants.

Rachel, a 41-year-old pre-school teacher and mum from Bromham, says she gets her style inspiration from high street trends, magazines and celebrities such as Victoria Beckham and TOWIE’s Jessica Wright.

The Street Style Campaign launched in early April and there were three rounds over a 3 week period; the person with the most votes each week entered into the final.

The votes for the three finalists were reset and at the end of the fourth week, the person with the most votes was crowned Milton Keynes’ Ultimate Style Hero, winning £250 worth of prizes.

The competition isn’t over though; Rachel is now representing Milton Keynes in the national stage of the competition.

To be in with a chance of winning and becoming the intu National Style Hero, Rachel needs as many votes as possible and voting is now open until 10am on Monday, May 19.

There are 12 finalists from the regional heats, as voted for by the public.

The Ultimate National Style Hero will win a glamorous photo shoot, a VIP trip to the Elite Model Look Grand Final, a £500 gift card to spend at their local intu centre and £500 to spend on intu’s website, where they can indulge in designer treats from the likes of Alexander McQueen, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors.

To top it off they could also become the face of an intu campaign.

Martin Hindson, General Manager at Midsummer Place Shopping Centre, said: “We’re thrilled with the finalist that the public has selected; Rachel is a great representative for Milton Keynes.

“We all need to get behind Rachel as much as we can to give her the best chance possible in the national competition.”
