Our panelists -

Wendy Rigg, Associate Editor of Reveal magazine:

"I've been at Reveal since its launch in 2004, across the fashion, beauty and celebrity style sections. I've worked with a large number of celebrities in my time at the magazine including Gok Wan, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen, the cast of Corrie, Eastenders, Towie, Strictly Come Dancing, Made In Chelsea, X Factor - you name them, we've styled them! I've been working in fashion since I was knee high to a grasshopper. At the age of 16 I was fashion and beauty editor for the legendary teenage magazine Jackie. I used to miss that bit out of my CV but now the Seventies are back, I'm admitting to being there the first time round. I also worked at more magazine, and Best 'back in the day'. I've recently contributed to Best again - I was asked to shoot fashion for them as part of the recent relaunch, which has been overseen by the genius maverick that is Jane Ennis, Editorial Content Director of Best, Reveal and Real People. In a past life I also trained as a Fashion Designer, at Ravensbourne College Of Art and Design. My degree collection was spotted and sold to Joseph. I went on to produce collections which were featured in English Vogue, Italian Vogue and Tatler and were sold in Harvey Nichols, in London and Macey's in New York, well as Joseph stores in London, New York and Paris. I have one daughter, Caitlin and two granddaughters, Layla and Taiga. I live in London, but like to spend as much time as I can in St Andrews, where I grew up. I have been known to pick up a golf club or two when visiting the home of golf. My favourite thing about my job is that there's always something new happening, which is just as well as I have the attention span of a hamster."

Sinead McIntyre, Editor of Fabulous:
"I joined Fabulous as features editor in April 2008, two months after launch, and have worked my way through the ranks of Features Director, Deputy Editor and Acting Editor before officially being made Editor in January. Before Fabulous, I spent six years as a general reporter on the Daily Mail covering stories including the Abigail Witchalls' stabbing and the 7/7 terror attacks. I am also a mum to twins - a boy and girl - aged four.
