The ‘20 Under 30: Hot List’ is part of the launch for Red magazine’s annual awards, the Red’s Hot Women Awards in association with euphoria Calvin Klein, which will take place in November.

Just as the awards recognise the most inspiring working women in the UK today, the ‘20 Under 30: Hot List’ identifies Red’s hottest women of tomorrow.

Recognised as inspirational to future generations of female professionals, with two of the selected having been awarded an MBE, their achievements have been praised by Red magazine and editor-in-chief, Sam Baker.

Sam Baker, Editor-in-Chief of Red, comments;
“It’s great to see such impressive young British talent in our 20 Under 30 list from areas of entertainment, right through to business and sport.
