Berenice Bejo In Miu Miu – ‘Redoubtable’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

After an appearance at the Deauville American Film Festival Closing Ceremony, Berenice Bejo graced the Toronto Film Festival red carpet at the ‘Redoubtable’ premiere on Thursday (September 14).

With the more casual nature of TIFF, the actress donned a shocking pink Miu Miu dress with smocked waist and a contrasting lace collar.

Berenice’s two-tone shoes tied in the black and white collar while grounding the diaphanous fabric of the pink piece.

Sarah Gadon In J. Mendel & Rebecca Liddiard In Lucian Matis – ‘Alias Grace’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Given the buzz surrounding ‘Alias Grace,’ a Netflix series inspired by Margaret Atwood’s novel of the same name, I was excited to see what its stars were going to wear to the premiere at the Toronto Film Festival on Thursday (September 14).

Sarah Gadon: The actress went for glamour in J. Mendel Fall 2017. The navy tulle and slashes of black on the skirt added some intrigue to the prim princess silhouette.

Rebecca Liddiard:
 Contrasting her co-star, Rebecca chose a below-the-knee Lucian Matis dress decorated with wispy black flowers. She toughened up the ensemble with black booties and a plum lip. The shoes were neither here nor there for me, and I wished that she would have went with a more directional boot to really contrast the demure dress.

Did you expect more from the looks?

Glenn Close In Zac Posen – ‘The Wife’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Glenn Close was in very good spirits for the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Wife’ on Thursday (September 14).

The actress was the epitome of grace wearing an Zac Posen Resort 2016 halterneck dress that delivered modern elegance, with cutaway panels enhancing the look further.

Deniz Gamze Erguven In Chanel – ‘Kings’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Some will surely experience a sense of déjà vu with Deniz Gamze Erguven’s ensemble from the ‘Kings’ Toronto Film Festival premiere on Wednesday (September 13).

Sofia Boutella wore the same dress back in July to the ‘Atomic Blonde’ world premiere in Berlin, Germany. I appreciate the glistening fabric and classic two-tone finish that is a hallmark of Chanel, but I have the same issues with this look as Sofia’s.

The white neck band feels out of place. It perhaps would have worked better with the double cuffs from the runway—or a bolder ivory clutch.

I also wish Deniz had pulled her hair back so it wouldn’t be interfering with the raised neckline.

Halle Berry In Zuhair Murad – ‘Kings’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Halle Berry is one of those celebs I would file in the “frustratingly inconsistent pile”, but she was firing on all cylinders for the ‘Kings’ premiere during the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival on Wednesday (September 13).

Opulent floral lace and embroideries raise the glamour quotient of this Zuhair Murad Fall 2017 jumpsuit.

It’s so good to see her back to her sexy best, even if my first thought was I wish the trousers were half an inch shorter.

With her trademark pixie making way for a high braided ponytail, she completed her look with Borgioni cognac diamond hoop earrings and Joelle diamond rings.

Menswear Red Carpet Roundup


Here’s midweek roundup of the men who have been spotted on the red-carpet circuit at the 2017 Toronto Film Festival and beyond.

Garrett Hedlund: There’s no denying that Garrett did look like quite the charmer at the ‘Mudbound’ TIFF premiere on Tuesday (September 12), despite the stuffier nature of his three-piece Dolce & Gabbana suit that could have used some proper tailoring through the pants, as well.

Luke Evans: I much preferred Luke’s Dolce & Gabbana ensemble at the ‘Professor Marston & The Wonder Woman’ TIFF premiere on Tuesday, as the aubergine colour of the suit mixed with the sky-blue shirt and paisley printed tie was such a handsome combo.

Andrew Garfield: The ‘Breathe’ TIFF premiere on Monday (September 11) had the actor dressing up in a charcoal Tom Ford suit styled with a wide, textural tie for added impact—and a less expected play on proportions, when a skinnier tie might have been anticipated with the slim-line jacket and pants.

Gemma Arterton In Markus Lupfer – ‘The Escape’ Toronto Film Festival

Gemma Arterton brought some menswear inspiration to the Toronto Film Festival, where she attended ‘The Escape’ premiere on Tuesday (September 12).

She dressed up a black V-neck with a gray Markus Lupfer Resort 2018 blazer and shorts and Jimmy Choo pumps.

I’m enamoured with the way Gemma opted for a relaxed take on suiting, but I find myself missing some of the lighter frivolity of the printed blouse and drop earrings. Do you agree?

Alison Brie In Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, Roland Mouret & Wolk Morais – 2017 Toronto Film Festival

Alison Brie has been a regular at the Toronto Film Festival, allowing her multiple opportunities to experiment with her feminine style. She attended the HFPA & InStyle Celebration on Saturday (September 9), followed by a trip to the IMDB Studio on Sunday (September 10). Then it was off to the ‘The Disaster Artist’ premiere on Monday (September 11).

HFPA & InStyle Celebration: While many brought out the sparkles and metallics, the actress charmed in a plaid Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini Pre-Fall 2017 dress. Kurt Geiger ‘Hermione’ sandals elevated the ensemble for evening.

IMDB Studio: Experimenting with an athletic take on glamour, Alison opted for a Roland Mouret Spring 2017 skirt, styled simply with a black Wolford ‘Jamaika’ bodysuit and Stella Luna ‘Bandana’ sandals. I enjoyed the fresh take, but would have preferred to see this ensemble switched with the tartan mini.

‘The Disaster Artist’ Premiere: Finally, she walked the transitional line between summer and fall with a Wolk Morais Spring 2017 black velvet dress with thigh-skimming hemline. I appreciated the pared-down accessorizing to let the draping on the mini shine. Sadly, it can sometimes get lost in photos.
