Ashley MacDonald (27) Store manager, Belfast
Wore what? Dress, Ted Baker, £139, coat, French Connection, £189, shoes, Primark, £12. Why? I always wear dresses because I like to look feminine. I mix and match the different ends of the high street and I don't follow fashion. I hate it when girls wear leggings and very short tops — it doesn't leave anything to the imagination. Who? I love Olivia Palermo because what she wears is always different but always looks fantastic. I don't like Lady Gaga at all, she's just weird. Monthly spend £250
Tori Magowan (18) Student, Belfast
Wore what? Blazer, Zara, £50, top, Dorothy Perkins sale, £8, jeans, J Brand, £180, pumps, Dune, £42, bag, Longchamps, £50. Why? I like to look smart and dressed up so I don't go for sweats or bright patterns. I can't stand leggings worn with Ugg boots, particularly the fake ones that people walk over on. Who?

Fearne Cotton has a great casual style, but I don't like Tulisa's style because she looks cheap, in my opinion. Monthly spend £300

Wore what? Shirt, Dorothy Perkins, £20, jacket, Topshop sale, £15, leggings, Primark, £5, boots, Primark, £20, bag, £10 Why?

Victoria Beckham is quite close to my style with her dresses. I really don’t like how Kate Middleton dresses, her style is too stereotyped. Monthly spend £200
