Maria McAley (21), Student, Belfast
Wore what? Jacket, £70, River Island, shoes, £6, Primark, top, £20 and skirt, £15, both Misguided.
Why? My style is classic with an urban twist. I love shops like Urban Outfitters and Topshop. I really don't like people wearing socks and sandals together as it looks ridiculous.
Who? Alexa Chung looks great as she takes a classic look and makes it her own, but Kim Kardashian doesn't dress to suit her figure.

Rachael Dickey (20), Student, Belfast
Wore what? Skirt, £10, Primark, bag, £25, River Island, top, £8, and boots, £30, both from River Island.
Why? I like quite punky clothes, so I shop in Zara and New Look a lot. I really don't approve of real fur though -- it's the one thing I wouldn't wear.
Who? Mollie King from The Saturdays and Gwen Stefani both rock a punk look, but I think that Miley Cyrus is really getting things wrong at the moment.

Stacey Rice (23), Student, Belfast
Wore what? Jacket, £15, NV, dress, £30, Quiz, boots, £27, River Island, bag, £6, Primark.
Why? I like wearing dresses and I tend to go for bright, strong colours. I would never wear a onesie outside the house.
Who? Nicole Scherzinger always looks amazing and elegant, but Jordan overdoes things.

Alana Richmond (25), Dancer, Belfast
Wore what? Jumper, £15, H&M, bag, £12, Primark, jeans, £38, Topshop, boots, £50, River Island.
Why? I like bright colours and comfortable clothes, but I usually dress more girly than this. I don't like bodycon clothes that show too much
Who? Cheryl Cole always looks lovely and feminine but Lady Gaga's style is a bit crazy.
* Monthly spend up to £800
Mandy Fitzpatrick (26), Retail manager, Belfast
Wore what? Jacket, £65, playsuit, £40 and boots, £65 all from Topshop. Bag, £3, Primark.
Why? I work part-time in a fashion shop and like to follow trends. I think tracksuits and sportswear just aren't flattering on people.
Who? Fearne Cotton always looks really edgy, but Victoria Beckham's look is over-rated.
* Monthly spend £200-300
