We hunted down a fash pack so undeniably cool that it’s almost un-cool of us to call them out — but these are women you need to know. Read on for a who’s who of Canadian it girls, and their fashion fixations for spring. —Carly Ostroff
The stylesetters: Cailli and Sam Beckerman are Proenza and Pomeranian aficionados, street-style faves and the ultimate fashion risk takers.

What she’s lusting for: Givenchy Metallic Leather Sandals, $850

The stylesetter: Liz Trinnear is a Much Music host and the network’s resident fashion expert. She’s always on-trend and camera ready.
What she’s lusting for: Perfect White Skinny Denim Jeans, $202
“A white skinny and a white boyfriend tee, paired with an oversized denim shirt, any colour of blazer, a patterned varsity jacket or a pastel sweater equals the ultimate spring look. Just be sure to keep a stain remover pen in your purse!”

The stylesetter: Moira Wright, Holt Renfrew’s divisional vice president of public relations, tops many best-dressed lists. Her collection of Celine and Hermés is beyond enviable.
What she’s lusting for: Steven Tai top, $925 exclusively at Holt Renfrew
“We are loving this Canadian designer’s fresh and innovative approach combining prints, colour and unique textiles. We hosted a small press event a few months ago to celebrate Steven Tai’s launch at Holt Renfrew, and it was lovely to meet him – and his mother!”

The style setter: With over 671,000 subscribers and counting, Gigi Gorgeous is a bona fide YouTube sensation. Born Gregory, the transgender role model, actor and activist shares online beauty reviews with so much personality it’s impossible to click away.
What she’s lusting for: MAC Cosmetic’s Mineralize Blush Warm Soul, $25
“Spring is all about playing up textures in your skin, and this product is amazing for a great glow on cheekbones.”

The stylesetter: Stefania Yarhi is a street-style photographer every bit as stylish as her subjects. We’ve often spotted her with DSLR in-hand and Lovisa pumps on her feet.
What she’s lusting for: Alexander Wang Glossed-leather mules, $653
“I’d love to pretend that I can remember what spring feels like at this point. These heels would be perfect with every colour, and I love how a mule looks on the ankle.”

The stylesetter: Makeup artist Misty Fox is the stuff girl crushes are made of. The stunning Aussie artist (and BFF to ultimate It girl Alexa Chung) is known both for her talent and her #IWokeUpLikeThis style.
What she’s lusting for: Rebecca Minkoff Iridescent Elle
“You can dress it up or down or carefully clash it with neutrals or denim. I feel like this is the kind of bag Ariel would give up her voice for.”
Follow her: @MistyFoxforever
The stylesetter: The first time Sylvia Mantella caught our eye was when was posing for the famed photographer, Giambattista Valli, in a grande coral gown. Since then, we’ve spotted the fashionable philanthropist in Balmain, Lanvin and Louboutin.
What she’s lusting for: Simone Rocha Pearl-Embellished Leather Tote, $2,540
“For spring, I have a couple obsessions (really though, it’s more like 50). My first choice appeals to me for its sweet and elegant style. And to if you can splurge a little more, add the matching black gloves which, of course, are also embellished with pearl accents. Chic to perfection!”

The stylesetter: FLARE fashion director Tiyana Grulovic is a mover and style maker. Notorious for defining cool in the pages of our magazine, Grulovic is known for her cooler-than-casual signature style. Open her wardrobe doors and you’ll find pieces by Acne Studios, Opening Ceremony, Alexander Wang and Ostwald Helgaso. Swoon.
What she’s lusting for: Opening Ceremony Plain Jumpsuit, $862
“A life-solving, lightweight jumpsuit just uncomplicates my morning routine. While I love getting dressed, I love the idea of not thinking about it when I wake up. Plus, a 1970s version will let me channel my Pam Grier fantasy.”
Follow her: @tiyanagrulovic
The stylesetter: Mackage designer Elisa Dahan understands the importance of making a fashion statement. Since arriving on the scene in 1999, she has become famous for her tailored leather goods that transition effortlessly from the runway to the street.
What she’s lusting for: Mackage PINA White Leather Jacket, $690
“My It item for spring has to be our white PINA leather jacket, paired with my Acne light denim jeans. The most on-trend choice you can make this spring is to add crop tops to your wardrobe. You can wear them layered under one of our leather jackets for the perfect spring look.”
