Best Friend Formal Selfie Giveaway

HerCanberra Team


The school formal. One last glittery night to celebrate how far you and your classmates have come…

Everyone’s endlessly discussing who is wearing what, where they’re buying it from and what sort of make up and hair they’re matching it with, but let’s be honest, formals are expensive…like, really expensive.

Most people’s parents will be like “$50 should be enough for a nice dress” and you’ll be like:


Some people will end up spending hundreds and hundreds of dollars on the dress alone.

Then there’s the shoes…and the jewellery… and the clutch…not to fear, HerCanberra, Westfield and T8 are here to help you out!

How would you like the perfect dress, shoes, bag, jewellery, accessories, hair and make up of your dreams for you AND your best friend…FOR FREE?


We’re launching our first HerCanberra Formal Giveaway and the prize is absolutely amazing.


A $1000 Westfield gift card for you and your best friend to spend on your dresses, shoes, accessories and jewellery!
