mini quest • We look forward to having Marie-Luise Wenzlawski, Head of Beauty at German COSMOPOLITAN, as a judge at the GoSeeAwards in the BEAUTY category and as a guest at UPDATE14 in Berlin, our mini Quest for you on GoSee

If you are interested in beauty, skincare, bodycare, make-up, wellness, hairstyles and anti-aging, Marie-Luise Wenzlawski is your woman. As the head of beauty at German COSMOPOLITAN magazine, she knows all about trends and which beauty products have cult potential.

Marie-Luise Wenzlawski’s career started at Axel Springer Verlag in Hamburg in the Beauty, Fitness & Wellness department.

What were your most influential experiences? Where could our readers recognize your signature style from? Her reply: ‘I worked as a department leader at ALLEGRA for five years. I was really able to let my creativity and imagination run wild while I was there. After the magazine folded I went to Condé Nast in Munich, worked as part of the development team for MYSELF and led the beauty department there for eight years. For the past year I have been working in the same position for COSMOPOLITAN and deal with anything to do with cosmetics, fitness and ...

GQ and GQ STYLE constantly work with celebrities and this has therefore become part of everyday life for Roya Norouzi, the magazines’ Director of Photography. The expert’s trained eye will come in very handy at UPDATE14 in Berlin, where she will also be part of the judging panel for the GoSeeAwards and decide who’s hot and who’s not. We are pleased to have her on board of the Editorial category panel – and maybe there will even be a celebrity shoot or two among the submissions?

Previously Roya has worked as an image editor for Amica magazine and as a freelance photo editor and art buyer for big publishers such as Gruner & Jahr, MVG and Axel Springer. Her current job doesn’t have much to do with her studies in Egyptology – which is definitely a good thing in regards to the countless beautiful images she has produced over the years. Here we present a selection, featuring Kylie Minogue, Bar Refaeli, Matthias Schweighöfer as well as the German national football team with coach Joachim Löw, Thomas Müller, Manuel Neuer and co.
