Naomi Watts In Elie Saab – ‘The Impossible’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Believe it or not, but I have been trying to get the BDOTW poll up since Friday. Every time I start working on it, another gorgeous gown hits the red carpet in Venice or Toronto.

This time it was Naomi Watts who halts proceedings wearing a gorgeous Elie Saab Resort 2013 gown to the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Impossible’.

As we know blush and nude have been Naomi favourite red carpet colours of late, so this lavender gown is a breath of fresh air.

The dress, like all Elie dresses, fits like a glove.

I love the daring plunging neckline and the double pleated detail on the waist plus I’m grateful she kept the belt.

Gold accessories, a slick back ‘do and gorgeous smile completes this look, which sees the actress take a large step out of her comfort zone….finally.

Despite one hiccup, Mr Saab is having an amazing week.

Olga Kurylenko In Emilio Pucci – ‘Seven Psychopaths’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

After wowing us during Venice Film Festival, Olga Kurylenko hit the red carpet for the ‘Seven Psychopaths’ during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival on Friday evening.

The Ukrainian actress looked gorgeous wearing an Emilio Pucci Fall 2012 gown with a beaded neckline.

Not many could successfully pull off a sexy gown with a keyhole details and central slit, but Olga does with great aplomb.

Her sultry look was styled with neutral makeup, a simple bun, a black box clutch and matching pumps.

You may remember that Janet Jackson wore the same gown in white during Cannes Film Festival, but without the same success as Olga.

Jennifer Lawrence In Christian Dior – ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Jennifer Lawrence took the red carpet for the premiere of ‘The Silver Linings Playbook’ during the Toronto Film Festival yesterday.

The actress glided down the red carpet in a Christian Dior Fall 2012 Couture gown, our second Dior Couture look of this festival so far.

Her strapless gown with a full skirt and a moody, dark tri-colour print serves as proof that the young actress is switching things up on the red carpet already.

I don’t hate the look, but I don’t love it either. My first thought was Morticia Addams.

The look is so dark and gloomy, that it’s almost hard to believe this is the same girl who stunned in Prabal Gurung earlier this year.

Dior pointed-toe pumps, sleek straight raven locks, a dark lip berry lip colour and Tiffany & Co. jewels completed the look.

Love or loathe?

Nina Dobrev In Monique Lhuillier – ‘The Perk Of Being A Wallflower’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Nina Dobrev joined Emma Watson on the red carpet for the Toronto Film Festival premiere for ‘The Perks Of Being A Wallflower’ yesterday evening.

The young star, who’s been on my one-to-watch list for a while, delivers in this gorgeous Monique Lhuillier gown.

Her printed strapless gown with high-low hemline and sequin embellishments was accented with a simple black ribbon tied at the back.

Brian Atwood peep-toes, a studded clutch, a chic updo and flawless makeup provided the finishing touches to her BDOTW worthy look.

Amy Adams In Marchesa – ‘The Master’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Amy Adams was just one of many stars to take to the red carpet for the 2012 Toronto Film Festival this weekend.

Dressed in a lovely Marchesa frock she attended the premiere of her latest movie, ‘The Master’.

Her LBD was decorated with a beautiful satin ribbon cascading from the shoulder down her dress.

Amy’s conservative, yet sexy frock was styled with black Manolo Blahnik pumps and a satin black VBH clutch.

A center parted bun and ruby earrings finished the look.

Anna Kendrick In Elie Saab – ‘End Of Watch’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Anna Kendrick took the red carpet for the Toronto Film Festival premiere of her latest movie, ‘End Of Watch’ last night.

The actress wore a black Elie Saab Fall 2012 gown.

Her black long sleeve gown with net lace detail is beautiful, but I’m not excited about seeing it on Anna, especially as I had mentally reserved it for Angelina Jolie.

At first I blamed the poor photography at this event, but I realized I was just making excuses and settled on the fact that this is just not working for me.

Someone taller and with more presence was needed to pull this off.

Anna styled her look Brian Atwood peep-toes, Forevermark jewels and a Judith Leiber clutch.

Kate Hudson In Alexander McQueen – ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ Toronto Film Festival Premiere

Kate Hudson looked stunning as she took to the red carpet for ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’ premiere during the 2012 Toronto Film Festival yesterday evening.

I’m not sure what’s happening lately, but there has been an undeniable radiant glow about Kate since Venice Film Festival.

I have always loved her boho laidback approach to red carpet dressing, but this glossier, more refined approach is equally appreciated.

She wore a white Alexander McQueen gown long-sleeve gown featured padded shoulders silver embellishments and a central split.

A white and silver trimmed Alexander McQueen clutch, Tiffany & Co. Jewels, sleek golden locks and white pumps completed her look.

I’m not totally offended by the pumps, but if she had to go for a white shoe I wish it had been a strappy sandal.
