Jamie: Style Frontier

"I buy anything that resembles the original Star Trek's fashion because I like a lot of colour, structure and geometry in my style. Lieutenant Uhura in particular inspires me. Her style is classic and I love strong women."

Tanisha & Eric

Tanisha: "Sometimes I dress like a boy -- sometimes girly. It all depends on how I feel when I wake up in the morning."

Eric: "My style is something that's very free yet trendy. I like to keep up with the latest fashions, but with a twist of my own thing. I'm particularly inspired by the late 80's and early 90's supermodel era. Kate Moss is one of my biggest role models. She created her own look and style."

Tanisha and Eric are in the early stages of starting their own style blog called My Evolution, which will focus on Toronto's street style and trends.

Rosemary: "Practical & Elegant"

"I thrift a lot -- so everything is pretty much secondhand. I like the 70's and 90's eras. I love Solange Knowles' style. It's so much better than Beyonce's."

Nathaniel: "Very Avant-Garde"

"One of my biggest inspirations is 'everyday life' -- on the go. Whatever I see...whatever I feel at the moment. Fashion designers Alexander McQueen and Rick Owens influence me."

Nathaniel is also a budding designer of women and men's contemporary clothing.

"Anyone can wear my styles -- from mid 20's to late 40's. Anyone who's willing to take that extra step and be that risk-taker will definitely like my designs. It's fast and edgy fashion."

Check out Nathaniel's website, Noir et Blanc, for cool videos, photography and his everyday inspirations.

George Stroumboulopoulos: Just Rocking It

CBC television personality George Stroumboulopoulos candidly shares his style secret:

"Truthfully, I have no idea what I'm doing. I just figure it out. There's no rhythm to this, obviously. But I think the trick to any style is to not give a shit what anybody thinks and just rock it. It's like doing triple denim -- who cares? As long as you're ok with it."

Watch George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight weeknights on CBC at 7pm and 11:30pm.

Leah: "A Little Bit of Grunge & Punk"

"I like to do a little bit of grunge and punk with some classic pieces. I'm still and always will be a fan of the Olsen twins."

It wasn't until Leah told me her name when I realized that I shot her street style three times before (1, 2 & 3).
