Tilda Swinton In Lanvin – ‘Snowpierce’ Deauville America Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

Tilda Swinton In Lanvin - 'Snowpierce' Deauville America Film Festival Premiere & Photocall

Three film festivals were taking place yesterday: Venice, Toronto and Deauville.

Tilda Swinton took to the red carpet for the Deauville American Film Festival premiere of ‘Snowpierce’, which also served as the closing ceremony yesterday evening.

The British actress is one of my faves. Some of you think this is blind love, but on this occasion I couldn’t bring myself to love this silver Lanvin one-shoulder liquid duchess satin gown.

It has to be one of the most unflattering pieces she has ever worn as it makes her appear wider than she is.

While her black pumps are barely seen, they are far too heavy for the look.

The only thing I really like here is the hair.

Earlier in the day for the photocall she wore an orange coat as a dress. This is more like the Tilda I know and love, especially with the unexpected pairing with baby-blue suede pumps with her citrus hued coat.

You can buy Tilda’s Lanvin one-shoulder duchess satin column gown from
Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.

Maria Bello In Salvatore Ferragamo – ‘Prisoners’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Maria Bello In Salvatore Ferragamo - 'Prisoners' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Maria Bello attended the ‘Prisoners’ Toronto Film Festival premiere yesterday evening held at The Elgin in Toronto, Canada.

The actress wore a Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2013 navy knit long sleeve turtle neck and a navy satin skirt styled with navy ankle strap pumps and a diamond encrusted cuff worn over her top.

Her part cosy, part sexy look has made me realize that when it comes to TIFF, there doesn’t appear to be a defined dress code like Venice or Cannes for example.

A few years ago it was considered quite a laidback event, but I find myself enjoying the variety of looks ranging from Nicole Kidman’s chic suit to Sarah Paulson’s Couture gown; as it takes the predictability out of the event.

Zoe Levin In Osman – ‘Palo Alto’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Levin In Osman - 'Palo Alto' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Zoe Levin joined Gia Coppola at the Toronto International Film Festival for the ‘Palo Alto’ premiere at Scotiabank Theatre on Friday.

The young starlet wore an Osman Resort 2014 sleeveless, square-neck dress in a swirling, navy dragon-print motif.

The feminine silhouette of the frock had a vintage sensibility and differed from the lookbook’s T-shirt variety. But her version was more premiere-appropriate.

Despite the fiercer print, this look was flirty and fun, especially given Zoe’s navy suede Ferragamo ‘Bibi’ clutch and retro-inspired, three-strap shoes—not to mention that top-knot and bright pink lip.

2013 Toronto International Film Festival Menswear Roundup

Menswear Toronto 1

The Toronto International Film Festival in Canada has provided a bevy of well-styled beauties. Now, for those guys, who also brought their A-game.

Benedict Cumberbatch: At the ’12 Years A Slave’ premiere at the Princess of Wales Theatre, the British actor was refined and relaxed in a light grey Dolce & Gabbana suit with a tie-less, white button-down shirt and reflective, black loafers. He worked this cool and clean-cut styling like a pro.

Hugh Jackman: The actor-stud glossed up the ‘Prisoners’ premiere at The Elgin in a shiny, dark Dolce & Gabbana suit paired over a midnight-navy shirt and black skinny tie. A bit of scruff added some rugged charm to all that fashion.

Brad Pitt: Like Benedict, Brad skipped the tie and unbuttoned his top collar, giving us some Gucci with this black notch-lapel, two-button ‘Brera’ black suit and white dress shirt at the ’12 Years A Slave’ premiere. His bad-boy ‘do of the day? A looped ponytail for those longish locks.

Gia Coppola In Proenza Schouler – ‘Palo Alto’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Gia Coppola In Proenza Schouler - 'Palo Alto' Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Gia Coppola was also at the Toronto International Film Festival, attending the ‘Palo Alto’ premiere yesterday at Scotiabank Theatre.

After wearing Proenza Schouler at the Venice Film Festival, the director gave us another look at the label, this time with a Fall 2013 embroidered laser-cut lace peplum dress in black, white and soft peach.

She pulls of the textured dress in an edgy, but still rather effortless way—an effect that’s further magnified by streamlined accessories, including a black Proenza Schouler PS11 clutch and black ankle-strap sandals, along with a casual, messy ponytail and minimal makeup.
