We're looking for two young UK-based bloggers - one fashion, one beauty - to become the next big thing in on-camera fashion reporting.

Both Louise Roe AND Olivia Palermo started their careers in on-camera fashion journalism.

Since then, one has gone on to have her own television show and the other is one of the world's most photographed style icons of this generation.
