NEW YORK, March 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StyleCaster – the leading social media company for fashion, beauty and lifestyle – has unveiled "Austin's 25 Most Stylish," the high-gloss editorial that salutes Austin's visionaries and trendsetters, presented by CUSP by Neiman Marcus.

The premiere Austin installment of StyleCaster's "Most Stylish" editorial series features a highly curated group of 25 musicians, gourmands, designers, and tech entrepreneurs who further Austin's style and innovation – the innovation that sets the backdrop for SXSW.

"Austin is a wonderfully diverse hub for creativity," says Laurel Pinson, Editor in Chief of StyleCaster Media Group. "We're so thrilled to be celebrating some of the city's most stylish characters—from musicians to entrepreneurs—during a festival that brings such a unique mix of people to the city."

Launched at SXSW in partnership with CUSP – Neiman Marcus' cutting-edge contemporary-designer-driven collections, StyleCaster will celebrate "Austin's 25 Most Stylish" at the closing night of SXSW Interactive. On Monday, March 11th, StyleCaster will unite style and new media industry influencers and enthusiasts to enjoy music by DJ Theory and Mick Boogie, as well as live performances by White Panda and Ghost Beach.

StyleCaster introduced the "Most Stylish" series in March of 2011 with the company's internationally-acclaimed, "50 Most Stylish New Yorkers" editorial. Now in its third year, the "Most Stylish" cover story has expanded to take on the entrepreneurs, stylists, actors, and innovators of Los Angeles, the Hamptons, the music industry, the social media realm, Miami and now Austin.

StyleCaster is proud to have curated, procured, produced, and now present the newest addition to the 'Most Stylish' franchise, "Austin's 25 Most Stylish," presented by CUSP by Neiman Marcus. Available at: www.StyleCaster.com
