Earlier this month we featured Ashli Templer from The Influencer on theLOOK. We’re now excited to announce that another member of the stylish Influencer trio has joined our tribe of Style Ambassadors: the gorgeous Alice McGenniss-Destro.
Discussing everything from frame shapes to Ted talks, here’s our exclusive Q&A with the Melbourne-based fashion and beauty journalist.
Name: Alice McGenniss-Destro
Home base: Melbourne
Current occupation: Journalist for L’Oreal Australia
Website/blog: THE INFLUENCER/ Catwalk of Words
What inspires me: Interesting people, good coffee and being in a new city for the first time. Also known for watching too many TED talks.
My glasses collection consists of about three to four pairs of sunnies: There’s always a pair missing/hidden in my last handbag at any given moment.
I chose the pair of sunglasses I’m wearing because: They’re my go‐to glasses shape. Not too big, but big enough to add a quirky touch to my outfit. I’m also digging clear frames at the moment.
A tip on picking out the perfect pair of frames is: The shape of your frames should contrast the shape of your face. So, if you have rounder features opt for more angular glasses, and if you have more angular features then frames with more curves are for you.

My favourite online source for style inspiration is: Instagram
Buying the same piece of clothing in multiple colours, yay or nay? I’m guilty of committing this twice. Both times I only ever wore one colour. So it’s 100% nay from me!
My favourite fashion trend of the moment is: Seriously crushing on anything pastel pink.
If I could be stuck in a lift with anyone, it would be: Anna Wintour. Give me one or two hours stuck in there and I will have hopefully sweet talked my way to a job at Vogue.
I would describe my personal style as: Polished with a hit of punchy prints and bright colours.
My current style muse is: I don’t place emphasis on one particular muse. I just gravitate towards pieces that suit my style.
Favourite city to go shopping is: Paris. Vintage one corner, Lafayette the next, and Sephora/ H&M/ Zara in between ‐ what more could a girl want?
