Congratulations to Elle-May Leckenby from Australia and Ebba Zingmark from Sweden, the grand prize winners of The NYFW Contest!
Elle-May Leckenby sneakily placed her passport in her look to let us know how ready she is to experience New York during its most exciting time: Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week! We're happy to let her know that this time around, there's no need to feel "left out" of the fun because she's in Australia! We're honored to welcome Elle to New York as our winner!
Stunning as always, Ebba Zingmark's entry was chic, effortless and perfect for running around New York in September. We're happy to inform Ebba that her return to the city she "fell in love with" is happening much sooner than expected! We're excited to bring Ebba, a long-time and widely loved Lookbooker, to her first NYFW!
Thank you to the entire community and everyone who entered. We really appreciate your thoughtful and creative entries. It was not easy to make our decision and we could only pick 2 winners. Still, we were moved by all the talent and ambition that lives on LOOKBOOK, and sincerely want to encourage everyone who has dreams about going to New York Fashion Week to not give up!

LOOKBOOK: The Series Episode 5: Fashion Blog
At the urging of Cleo, Hannah decides to go against type and incorporate a little elegance into her next shoot. Things get tense with Mark when Hannah suddenly decides to take a stronger hand with how she is shot. She is “the star” after all. Back at home, Hannah continues her regimen of “supplements” to keep her slim body shape, but her brother Tony can tell that something is not right.

A Message from Levi's:
"Congrats to all the winners and thank you to everyone who participated. We were so impressed by all your creative DIY ideas and your amazingly stylish outfits. It was impossible to choose favorites, but after much deliberation we decided on 6 outstanding takes on the 501® jean. Thanks so much to everyone who sent in their looks! It's not easy to come up with a unique look, so we really appreciate each and every one of you who submitted, and we hope that if you live near NYC, São Paulo or Toronto we'll get to see you come out and party with us!"
