Sarah Silverman In Lavish Alice & Galia Lahav Couture – HFPA & InStyle Celebration of TIFF & ‘Battle Of The Sexes’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Sarah Silverman did double duty at the Toronto International Film Festival. First, the performer attended the HFPA & InStyle Celebration of TIFF on Saturday (September 9). Later, she joined Emma Stone and Andrea Riseborough at the ‘Battle Of The Sexes’ premiere on Sunday (September 10).

HFPA & InStyle Celebration of TIFF: Sarah further proved white dresses are a key player at TIFF 2017 with a Lavish Alice Fall 2017 number. She enhanced the glamorous vibe of the ankle-length frock with gold Sarah Flint ‘Ivy’ heels, golden jewellery and waves cascading over one ear.

‘Battle Of The Sexes’ Premiere: For evening, she kept the glamour but increased the party factor with Galia Lahav Couture. While her co-stars went for shorter silhouettes, Sarah championed a maxi gown festooned with lace appliqués. I appreciate the ensemble’s spirit and the way her topknot perfectly echoed the rosette detail on her neck.

Imogen Poots In Prada – ‘I Kill Giants’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

I was pleasantly surprised by Prada recently, with Jessica Chastain’s captivating gown at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival.

But, my brief love affair ended abruptly when Imogen Poots entered the film festival circuit for the ‘I Kill Giants’ TIFF premiere last Saturday (September 9), as I was quickly reminded why Prada can be a difficult sell on the red carpet.

It wasn’t just the lacklustre silhouette of the dress, but also the unflattering satin-y fabrication and the haphazard fringed beading that were problematic.

Add to that the black platform pumps and a messier approach to hair and makeup, and it’s a recipe for a redo. There isn’t anything I’d salvage here.

Alicia Vikander In Louis Vuitton – ‘Euphoria’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Alicia Vikander was at the ‘Euphora’ premiere during the 2017 Toronto Film Festival on Monday (September 11).

While the film festival seems to be the place for a few red-carpet transformations, it was very much the status quo for Alicia who was dressed in Louis Vuitton, naturally.

However, what was transformative about this Resort 2018 look was the modifications made from the original tapestry dress.

Made more traditionally feminine with the revised neckline and heightened bow at the waist, it created a sweet look for the actress. But it wasn’t without its fair share of edge.

Lest it get too ladylike, the two suggestively high slits at the side hinted at a slightly more rebellious intrigue.

I love how she styled the look with bounding waves for a softly romantic finish.

Claire Foy In Tibi – ‘Breathe’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Toronto Film Festival appears to be the place to showcase your red carpet transformations.

Yesterday we had Andrea Riseborough, today we have Claire Foy.

The former blonde who had a penchant for floral dresses attended the ‘Breathe’ premiere on Monday (September 11) in Toronto, Canada looking like a different woman.

This new woman has taken a walk down the dark side, with both in hair colour and style.

Her Tibi bias cut dress, which defines sophistication with its decadent velvet fabrication and timeless silhouette, was styled with maroon velvet sandals and a Birks ‘Splash’ stackable white gold rings with diamonds.

Was this a look you could get on board with?

Octavia Spencer In Tadashi Shoji – ‘The Shape Of Water’ Toronto Film Festival Promo

It’s been a busy Toronto Film Festival for Octavia Spencer, but one thing that’s been consistent is her designer: Tadashi Shoji.

Like Venice Film Festival, the New York based designer hooked his favourite girl up in a selection of gorgeous pieces.

IMDb Studio: As Octavia tends to opt for darker hues, this sunny Tadashi Shoji top really brightened my day. I would love her to branch out and try more colours in the future as well as those fun animal print shoes.  The look was styled with a L’Dezen sliced diamond ring.

Fox Searchlight TIFF Party: Quickly reverting back to those deep dark hues she loves, this floral dress felt so fresh and vibrant. I didn’t get that same feeling from the navy dress she wore during Venice. She styled this look with deep blue velvet Jimmy Choo ‘Holly’ platforms which evoked the unbridled glamour of the ’70s.

‘The Shape Of Water’ Premiere: Her final look was beautiful. For Toronto Film Festival, cocktail dresses work within the more relaxed environment. So you’ll get no complaints from this time around about he off-the-shoulder peplum number.   I love how this look benefits from the sleek styling which included Steve Madden ‘Slithur’ shoes which I also own in yellow…naturally.

Rosamund Pike In Alexander McQueen – ‘Hostiles’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Rosamund Pike attended the ‘Hostiles’ premiere during the 2017 Toronto Film Festival on Monday (September 11).

The British actress looked utterly elegant in this floor-length gown from Alexander McQueen’s Pre-Fall 2017 collection, which showcases a mesmerizing fantasy garden within its embroidered details.

I’m sure many of you are applauding the lining of this statement piece, which Rosamund let shine without nothing but a deep rouge lip.

Some might have a slight feeling of déjà vu, but this stands alone for me.
