[schedule on=”08/24/2015 07:00 am”] [/schedule]Today starts the second week of voting for 2015’s 10 Most Beautiful Women, which means we’ll introduce you to five more lovely and accomplished ladies. You may have seen the sneak peek of more candidates last week on StyleSheet. (You can vote here.)
After more than 400 nominations for this year’s contest and much consideration, we’ve narrowed the semifinalists to 20. Now, we need you to choose Dallas’ 10 Most Beautiful!
Here’s how it works: Throughout the voting period, you can vote once a day, every day. We’ll introduce you to five lovely ladies each week for three more weeks. The 12 top vote-getters will advance to finals week, which will determine who will appear in the December 2015 issue of D Magazine.
This week’s talented and charming candidates each have impressive and compelling backgrounds, ranging from a former civil engineer to a creative director of a boutique design firm.
From civil engineer to fitness coach, Tiffany Biggs finds purpose through inspiring and working with others to meet their fitness goals. A serendipitous run in the “Mrs. Texas” pageant led Biggs to consider her dream of becoming a personal trainer and fitness instructor.
Although she’s lived throughout the United States, journalist Shannon Powell Hart has found an affinity for Dallas as well as the state of Texas. Hart, after living in cooler climates, fell in love with Texas’ weather and culture.
Arriving in Dallas as an immigrant at age 23, Arma Shahidi-Fitzgerald has built a life full of professional accolades as a graphic artist and personal success as a wife and mother. Shahidi-Fitzgerald, who serves on the advisory board for the University of North Texas’ College of Visual Arts and Design, has also been featured in several national television commercials and short films.
Although she’s an entrepreneur at heart, Julie Squibb finds comfort and joy in spending time with her extensive blended family and many friends. Squibb, who helped co-found Digital Marketing and Print Solutions, now buys, remodels, and sells homes in her Cedar Creek neighborhood.
Outside her accomplished sales career with Pfizer, Erica Zeplin enjoys spending time with her 17-year-old niece and 13-year-old nephew. Zeplin, a Victoria native, loves Dallas’ lively neighborhoods and openhearted people.
