Stand-Up Ladies Come Out for Instyle’s Women Of Style Nomination Event

InStyle Australia, together with Audi and Moët & Chandon, celebrated its 2015 Women of Style awards nominees cocktail party at Sydney CBD’s Georg Jensen last night, March 3. The theme for this year’s awards is the driving force of women, and the attendees’ sophisticated, polished and feminine outfits couldn’t have reflected the concept any better.

Scroll through below to see our favourite looks from the night, plus see the full list of nominees across the eight categories including arts and culture, beauty, business, charity and community, entertainment, environment, fashion and lifestyle. Winners will be announced in May.
