WWD asked a smattering of teens across the U.S. and Europe to reveal some of their favorite things. Here are the results of the unscientific survey:

"I like the Gap ads because they’re not boring," said Raquel "Rocky" Espana, a 16-year-old from Brunswick, Ga.

Favorite Stores:

Abercrombie & Fitch

American Eagle

J. Crew



Favorite Ad Campaign: Gap

"I like the cute half-naked guys in the Abercrombie books," said Lauren Breeding, 18, from Dallas. "And I like the Guess ads because they’re dramatic.

Diesel’s are cool because they’re about world issues."

Favorite Brands:

Miss Sixty




Christian Dior

"When I shop I’m on a real mission to find bargains," said India Standing, a 17-year-old from London. "I always make a day of it and go with friends, have coffee and lunch in some cafe."

On The Holiday Wish List:

Dior or Gucci sunglasses





We want clothing that appeals and looks good, even if we aren’t the skinniest girls out there," said Mary Spacapan, 16, from Arlington Heights, Ill.
