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.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

The men didn’t take a break this weekend either, with the 2017 Toronto Film Festival summoning many of them to the red carpet—plus a few other occasions.

Bill Skarsgard: At the ‘It’ Stockholm premiere, Bill wore a tweedy, printed Bottega Veneta suit that he enhanced with the deep navy dress shirt. I just wish he had buttoned the top button of his jacket.

Alan Cumming: At the ‘Battle of the Sexes’ TIFF premiere on Sunday (September 10), Alan showed off his quirky style in a Stella McCartney double-breasted pinstriped suit. The tapered pants didn’t really do the look any favours, and I generally have the same reaction to men’s platform shoes as I do to women’s—being.

Aubrey Drake Graham: At ‘The Carter Effect’ TIFF premiere on Saturday (September 9), the entertainer dressed up in a Prada ensemble that was emboldened by its aubergine palette.

BoF 500 Gala Red Carpet Roundup

Selena Gomez and Jared Leto weren’t the only two holding court at the BoF 500 Gala on Saturday (September 9) in New York City. Here, a look at the other guests in attendance.

Doutzen Kroes: The model showed off her form in a ruched and gathered Jason Wu Spring 2018 drawstring dress that offered a new twist on the LBD.

Lewis Hamilton: If Lewis’s confetti pants didn’t spell party, I don’t know what does. This Dior Homme look is fashion-forward without being overcooked or try-hard. Jared Leto may want to take notes.

Taylor Hill: I’m afraid this Julien Macdonald Fall 2017 metallic mini came across as a bit dated, but it was more the crimped hair and nude sandals that killed the vibe.

Jamie Dornan In Prada & Amelia Warner In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Mary Shelley’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Not only were Elle Fanning and Maisie Williams at the ‘Mary Shelley’ Toronto Film Festival premiere on Saturday (September 9), Jamie Dornan and wife Amelia Warner were also in attendance.

Jamie Dornan: The ’50 Shades of Gray’ actor kept it suave and understated in a gray Prada suit that he wore in just the slightest sexy-unkempt way with the white shirt unbuttoned at the top. Tod’s shoes provided a more casual, trendy take on men’s dress shoes.

Amelia Warner: Amelia likewise took a more laid-back approach by wearing an Alberta Ferretti Fall 2017 tapestry suit that will immediately call to mind the pajama trend. The loungewear vibe is difficult to downplay, but she dressed it up in polished form with her pointy pumps and matching burgundy clutch.

Jessica Chastain In Prada – ‘Molly’s Game’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Having not seen Jessica Chastain since Cannes, she did not disappoint upon her dazzling return at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival where she attended the premiere of ‘Molly’s Game’ on Friday (September 8).

In a glorious example of a Prada keyhole gown worn so well on the red carpet, the actress was captivating in this design—the colours alone radiating with her flame locks.

I particularly love the mist of turquoise embellishment, as it added a lovely mystique to the gown.

No jewels were necessary here, as the gown was more than enough to captivate. She wrapped up the glamorous look with the playful, flirty appeal of a ponytail.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup

No better way to round out the week than with a group of handsome guys on the red carpet. Here’s who was out and about yesterday (September 7).

Armie Hammer: At the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ premiere at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, Armie echoed his own baby blues with shades of navy in this Ralph Lauren ensemble, where the suede, double-breasted jacket was the star piece. I’m sure the look had a lot more dimension in person.

Shia LaBeouf: Also at the Toronto Film Festival, Shia attended the ‘Borg/McEnroe’ premiere, where he emboldened his dark Prada suit with a colourful paisley dress shirt. We’ve seen nearly the identical look on Dane DeHaan.

Timothée Chalamet: Joining Armie at the ‘Call Me By Your Name’ premiere, Timothée had another shade of blue in mind with this cerulean suit from the Calvin Klein 205W39NYC Fall 2017 collection. The fit could have been better, especially through the trousers, so as to quell any sort of retro prom references.
