suit by Band of Outsiders, shirt by Kenzo, shoes by Christian Louboutin
Harry Potter does his best Zoolander, and the world swoons in response. I can’t even handle how dramatic that pose is, or how much I love the black suit/blue shirt hipster-chic combo.
jacket by Moschino, jumpsuit (underneath) by Veronica Beard, purse by Calvin Klein, shoes by Paul Andrew
My new favorite person on the red carpet is the unstoppably fabulous Lupita Nyong’o, who made my jaw drop with this stunning tweed Moschino jacket and her polka-dotted heels. And the look was completely different, but still totally chic, when she took the jacket off:
Fucking fantastic. The earrings and lipstick are particularly gorgeous on her.
dress by Antonio Berardi, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I think this coral color is truly incredible on Lupita, but I’m not totally sold on the strange backwards cowl neck and the leopard print pumps.
dress by Christian Dior, purse by Rauwolf, shoes by Jimmy Choo
She could have used a statement piece of jewelry just to give the look a little but of surprise, but there is nothing I don’t love about this textured, full-skirted, pocketed Dior delight.
top and pants by Viktor & Rolf, shoes by Jimmy Choo
Dakota Fanning wore an all-black version of this look in Venice, but I love the black-and-white contrast on Felicity. Those are some kick-ass lady-pants on any lady, and the pumps are sleek, though a little underwhelming.
top and skirt by Versace, shoes by Christian Louboutin
I’ve watched all of Game of Thrones and read 1.75 of the books since the last time I saw Emilia Clarke on the red carpet, so excuse me while I fangirl out over Khaleesi and how much I adore her. Okay, the hair and makeup here aren’t worthy of the mother of dragons, but I am obsessed with her boxy little crop top, that chic white skirt, and of course, her devotion to the neverending Summer of the White Pump.
dress by Vivienne Westwood, purse and shoes by Charlotte Olympia
I like this more in theory than in practice. That yellow is a really difficult color to wear with Emilia’s delicate porcelain skin tone, and the pinkish accessories don’t make it any easier. But I think the draping of this dress and her desire to rock a bright color on the red carpet should be commended.
dress and purse by Proenza Schouler
I am absolutely in love with this dress, and I would like to own it and wear it basically everywhere. It’s perhaps an inch or two too long on Gia, throwing off the proportions a bit, but it’s still absolutely killer, and the simple accessories let the mixed prints do all the work.
gown by Burberry Prorsum, purse by Rauwolf
Simple and classic with just enough modernity to keep her from looking stuffy. I had never heard of this English actress until this film festival, but she is crazy beautiful and pretty darn stylish to boot.
gown by Erdem
The simple strapless neckline is just crying out for a necklace, but the gown itself is an absolute dream. I love the print, the silhouette, and the pockets. It just needed a bit more styling to make Alicia look a little less naked.
suit by Gucci
Cute suit, but the brown shoes with it aren’t working for me.
jumpsuit by Dolce & Gabbana
Not groundbreaking, but I like a sexy look that doesn’t show much skin, and this is one of those looks.
suit, shirt, and shoes by Calvin Klein
Really, dude? Matching blue shoes? Do we not make fun of you enough already?
top, shorts, and necklace by Marni, shoes by Rochas
I actually sort of like this, in a hipster-Pocahontas kind of way. I’m not sure those terrifying little shoes are okay, but there’s some sort of earthy-chic vibe to this that I like.
dress and shoes by Valentino
Something about this shiny blue fabric screams “Olympic ice skater,” and I can’t really get over that. Also, that neckline is nothing but awkward.
CHRIS HEMSWORTH and ELSA PATAKY
Chris’s suit by Gucci; Elsa’s gown by Elie Saab
They’re a beautiful couple, but unless this Toronto Film Festival premiere is also their wedding day, there’s really no reason for her to be wearing that dress. Just adding black nail polish isn’t enough to distinguish your white dress from a wedding gown.
suit by Dolce & Gabbana
There’s little he could do to actually look bad, but he could do much better. This suit is too tight and too shiny for him.
dress by Proenza Schouler, shoes by Bionda Castana
I was ready to applaud Elizabeth for wearing this funky print on the red carpet, until I saw the shoes she paired with it. Stupid. They’re just competing with each other for attention.
dress by Dolce & Gabbana, shoes by Jimmy Choo
Beautiful, but not particularly interesting.
dress by Dolce & Gabbana, purse by MaxMara, shoes by Brian Atwood
Jennifer Garner has been on the red carpet for a billion years and somehow manages to always look like a bridesmaid. You’d think she would have figured it out or hired someone better along the way, but alas. This is as good as it’s ever going to get.
