Martina Jenkins (46)

Secretary, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £100, Karen Millen; cardigan, £30, Zara; shoes, £45, Marks & Spencer; bag, £200, Michael Kors.

Why? I love a dress because you can just put it on and you're ready to go. I despise Crocs because they're so unflattering.

Who? I love Victoria Beckham's whole collection, everything from the colour to the cut. Jordan looks terrible and dresses too trashy.

Nicola McCrory (19)

Student, Portadown

Wore what? Jacket, £12, vest top, £2, necklace, £3, shoes, £8 all from Primark; jeans, £10, Internationale; bag, £20, Michael Kors copy.

Why? I like to follow fashion so I read magazines to keep up to date with the latest trends. My style is girly with lots of pink, so I don't like anything too plain!

Who? I really like Michelle Keegan's new range for Lipsy, but Catherine Zeta Jones' style is a little too understated for my liking.

Rachel Vallely (22)

Call centre worker, Belfast

Wore what? Vest, £18, Topshop; skirt, £10, Primark; trainers, £70, Littlewoods; necklace, £10, New Look.

Why? I like to wear bright colours and I tend to go for shorts and skirts that show off my legs. I really don't like kimonos – everyone's wearing them and I like to be different.

Who? Cheryl Cole is a little bit out there and not afraid to wear colours, though Nicki Minaj takes it too far.

Catherine McMeel (21)

Student, Armagh

Wore what? Black top, £20, H&M; trousers, £30, River Island; bag, present, Michael Kors; shoes, £50, Collection.

Why? I wear a bit of black because it's so versatile but I always like to inject a bit of colour into an outfit too. I'm not a fan of faux fur, though.

Who? The Duchess of Cambridge always looks amazing but Cara Delevingne wears some odd outfits, with pieces that don't work together.

Lynsey McCrory (23)

Graduate teacher, Portadown

Wore what? Necklace, £10, jeans, £28, both from Topshop; bag, £150, Ted Baker; shoes, £19, New Look.

Why? My style is quite classic so I often go for block colours and monochrome, but I don't like crazy patterns or mad prints.

Who? I think Sam Faiers from The Only Way Is Essex dresses really nicely but I'm not keen on the clothes worn by Jessica Wright and Amy Childs.
