The competition isn’t over though; Rachel is now representing Milton Keynes in the national stage of the competition.  To be in with a chance of winning and becoming the intu National Style Hero, Rachel needs as many votes as possible.  Voting for the final commenced on Monday 5th May and is open until 10am on Monday 19th May.
