sphere of influence

At Miss FQ, we’re never not crushing on cool girls. Girls with brains, brawn and beauty — both inner and outer. Brave girls with big contributions to make to the world. Girls we know from the ’gram, girls we know IRL, and girls we’ve never met but know we’d be BFFs with (hey, Chrissy Teigen, I’m looking at you). This issue we celebrate our cool-girl crushes, a number of whom fall into that coolest-of-cool-girl category — ‘influencer’. It’s no longer just the silver screen, or even the small screen you turn to for fashion, beauty and lifespo, after all. It’s the smallest screen — the one you hold in your hand. From bloggers, to vloggers, to ’grammers, you look up to social media stars as much, if not more, than you look…

I loved the launch issue so much, I ran down to the bookstore on my break when the second issue launched so I could grab it ASAP — and I wasn’t disappointed!

the scrub club

According to approximately a billion Instagram quotes, life begins after coffee. For Melbournians Bree Johnson (pictured far left, a strong three-quarter latte) and Jess Hatzis (a double espresso girl), the hyperbole rings truer than for most. “Like all good stories, ours starts in a café,” says Bree (31), who with Jess (30) and friends Alex Boffa and Steve Rowley founded beauty brand Frank Body in 2013. The café in question belonged to Steve — now Bree’s fiancé and then fielder of requests for used coffee grinds. “His customers told him it was an amazing exfoliator,” says Bree. At the time, she and Jess were running digital communications company Willow & Blake, which they’d launched after working together while they were at university. Quick to pick up the scent of a potential new…

There’s the Sports Illustrated model club, which she joined in 2010 — the year she was named Rookie of the Year in the magazine’s annual swimsuit issue.
