ELLE Malaysia's Editor-in-Chief, Kate Guest, heads the panel of five judges of the 2016 ELLE Malaysia Style Awards presented by Pandora.

"In the three years ELLE has been in Malaysia, we've seen the local fashion scene grow in leaps and bounds. Now feels like the right time to launch the ELLE Style Awards. We hope that public recognition and support from an international fashion title such as ELLE will help our local designers go on to even bigger, brighter things."

Australian-born Kate studied journalism and law in Melbourne, and began her career there in newspapers and magazines. She later spent six years living and working in London, before moving to Malaysia in 2012. Kate joined ELLE at the time of its launch, first in the role of deputy editor, and then digital editor. In June 2015 she was appointed editor-in-chief.

Kate said she is thrilled with the calibre and breadth of the judges ELLE has recruited. "When we first started talking about the Style Awards we drew up a wish list of 'dream' judges, and I'm happy to say our wish list has become a reality. Every one of our judges is passionate and knowledgeable, and I'm really looking forward to some heated debates as we decide our winners!"

But we couldn't do it without our readers, of course. If you'd like to have your say on the designers and style influencers you think are Malaysia's best, register your vote now!
