Northern Ireland Fashion Spy: Kim Kardashian has great style

Marian Mawhinney (26), PR manager, Jordanstown
Wore what? Shirt, New Look, £19, bag, River |Island, £20, belt, Primark, £2, jeans, River Island, £40, shoes, Zara, £50. Why? During the week my style is casual but at weekends I go for glamour. I’ve never liked those leggings with the black and white stripes — they’re not very flattering. Who? I love Blake Lively’s style, I think she looks beautiful in everything. Snooki from Jersey Shore is horrendous, though. Monthly spend £350

This Week ...

Lois Yearsley (31) Window dresser, Belfast
Wore what? Jacket, £25, bag, £3, both from charity shops; leggings, £25, Urban Outfitters; boots, £30, Office. Why? I always mix vintage with high street to create an individual style. I hate dungarees though as they're not flattering on anyone. Who? Irish singer Roisin Murphy has a great individual style. I don't like Cheryl Cole because everyone tries to dress like her. Monthly spend £60

Catherine Rooney (30s) Design technician, Belfast
Wore what? Mac, £35, skirt, £20, both from TK Maxx, top, £20, Topshop, bag, £30, River Island. Why? My style is classic and when I'm not wearing jeans I tend to be quite mod in my dress sense. I really don't like skinny jeans as everyone wears them these days. Who? Audrey Hepburn always looked amazing. I loved her style. I don't think Rihanna is well dressed at all. She's far too grungy. Monthly spend £100-150

Blaithin Farrell (21) Retail assistant, Belfast
Wore what? Jacket, £49, New Look; scarf, £12, Monsoon; bag, £12, jeans, £7, boots, £20, all from Primark. Why? I dress up at night but my style is quite casual during the day. I love leopard print and fur though. I think it looks terrible when people wear tracksuits outside the house or gym. Who? Holly Willoughby has a beautiful style. I really like Tulisa but I never like anything she wears. Monthly spend £100

Emma O’Hagan (20) Student, Cookstown
Wore what? Biker jacket, £52, Miss Selfridge; top, £12 and boots, £75, Topshop; jeans, £45, Wallis; bag, present, River Island. Why? My style is quite colourful but not overly girly. I love skinny jeans. I really don't like neon colours as they always look cheap. Who? I adore Kim Kardashian and any style she wears I buy. Lady Gaga is a bit too mad, though, for my taste. Monthly spend £150

Raisa Donnelly (21) Student, Dungannon
Wore what? Jacket, £18, New Look, dress, £36, Topshop, boots, £30, Peacocks, bag, £65, TK Maxx. Why? Today I'm a bit rock chick but I do have lots of individual styles. It often depends on what day of the week it is. I'm a big fan of skinny jeans — I really don't like bootcut ones. Who? I love Fearne Cotton. She has a wonderful vintage style which looks great on her. Katie Price just looks chavvy, though. Monthly spend £200
