Krystal Koo, 27, is an urban development marketing manager at a realty company in Toronto and muse to the designers of Greta Constantine. Proud owner of a stamp-filled passport (recent trips include jaunts through the middle east) and a spellbinding shoe collection, this tastemaker walks us through her polished picks.

Go-to stylist: “Greg May. He listens while making sure you don’t make the biggest mistake of your life. Plus, he has the best products, especially his signature-line peppermint conditioner.”

Top shops: “119 Corbo for statement pieces. Holt Renfrew for the unbeatable breadth of Canadian designers. The Room for to-die-for shoes.”

Design stars: “Greta Constantine’s Kirk [Pickersgill] and Stephen [Wong] know how to make a woman feel gorgeous.”

Unbeatable brunch: “Dynasty in Yorkville. It’s been a tradition to dim sum there every Sunday for 20 years.”

Heaven scent: “L’Impératrice by D&G is the perfect daytime fragrance.”

Shoe fetish: “My magenta Escandria heels by Christian Louboutin are like wearable art. They only had 15 pairs sent to North America.”
