Fashion spy: Sarah Jessica Parker is my fashion idol but Lady Gaga takes things too far

By Kerry McKittrick

Our reporter checks out the style at Belfast Fashionweek and finds plenty of trendy people out and about.

Emma Mooney (22)

Retail manager, Ballycastle

Wore what? Jacket, £30, Marmalade Ballymena; top, £14, Vero Moda; skirt, £45, River Island; shoes, £6, Barratts.

Why? My style is eclectic and I love to mix and match different trends. I'm always dressed up and never wear sweatpants.

Who? Sarah Jessica Parker is my fashion idol because she mixes everything up. I don't like Lady Gaga as she takes things too far.

Carla Fraser (27)

Solicitor, Belfast

Wore what? Dress, £15, Tesco; bag, £900, Mulberry; shoes, £30, Next.

Why? I wear black during the week, so I love bright colours at weekends. I only wear sportswear when I'm going to the gym.

Who? Millie Mackintosh has a lovely style and can throw great outfits together. Any of the girls from TOWIE are far too overdone, though.

Cliodhna Kerr (27)

Solicitor, Belfast

Wore what? Coat, Michael Kors. Jacket, £80, Wallis; dress, £40, bag, £30, Zara; shoes, £12, Primark.

Why? I like to be dressy as I have to wear black for work, but my style is simple. I would never wear flat shoes.

Who? I love Miranda Kerr's classic style but I think Rihanna is badly dressed - she just looks cheap.

Lauren Penman (22)

Blogger, Belfast

Wore what? Jacket, £40, Mango; jumpsuit, £25, shoes, £45, House of Fraser; bag, present, Helen Rochfort.

Why? I have an obsession with jumpsuits but otherwise I love the latest trends and follow what's on the catwalk. I don't like anything too tight-fitting or revealing.

Who? I adore Rita Ora's funky style but Paloma Faith can go a bit too far in her look.

Lucy McCormack (19)

Student, Belfast

Wore what? Top, £35, Warehouse; jeans, £39.50, Jack Wills; shoes, £60, Topshop; bag, £15,

Why? I love neutral colours and co-ordinating my outfits, but I'm not into yellow as I think it drains me a little.

Who? I love Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Cara Delevingne. Kim Kardashian wears some very tight clothes, which is a look I don't like.
