With 500+ items of clothing this is a great game for those who love fashion. You can connect with others online as well as flirt with and date celebrities. With lots of activities to do, this free-to-play game is great for teens and young girls no matter where they are in the world.

How it Works: First of all, you’ve have to download the app from the Play Store. Once you’ve done that, you might have to wait for some new content to download.

Once that’s done though, you’ll find yourself in the game world with lots to do.

The first thing you should do is take a look at your quests by opening the clipboard in the bottom left. The first quest is to go home and get changed.

At home you can change your clothes and also change your character’s name online, too.

Obviously, you won’t have many clothes when you first start playing the game so, you’ll want to head into town and hit a fashion store.

Of course, shopping is just one side of things, as you can begin a career as a pop singer and take part in or judge style contests.

You can use diamonds to speed things up and don’t forget that leveling up is the key to unlocking more content. Something that is a lot of fun is judging in the style contents. This mini-game sees you judging couples on which one looks better. Get 10/10 and you’ll receive a gift.

These contests allow you to create a style icon out of your avatar and then pit them against others playing online. Other users will then vote on your style, if you get enough votes you could easily win your first contest. Winning will give you rewards that you can use to have more fun in-game.
