As the Toronto International Film Festival comes to a close, we share all of our favourite looks that hit the red carpet. We all know it is not just about the films, of course. This is the stars’ time to shine in the fashion department as well!

Fifty-five-year-old Annette Bening kept it simple in an all-white frock and black open-toed heels at The Face of Love premiere.

He’s still got it! Pierce Brosnan charmed the crowd at the premiere of his film Love Punch. The plaid pattern took his sophisticated look to the next level. Well played!


We are ga-ga for Emma Thompson’s go-go look at the premiere of her film  Love Punch. Thompson brought her sartorial A-game, from the bright pink Stella McCartney dress to the statement necklace and black and white platforms – she’s retro perfection!

After the men tuxes and suits we’ve seen on the red carpet, we appreciate how Kurt Russell dressed up his dark denim with a crisp white shirt and blazer (sans tie) at The Art Of The Steal premiere.


Forty-five-year-old Julia Roberts raised eyebrows last night in a little red number by Dolce and Gabbana attending the premiere of August: Osage County. We must say, the hemline is uncharacteristically short for Roberts, but if we had legs like her we’d hike the hem, too!


Thandie Newton is on trend in black and white at the Half Of A Yellow Sun premiere. From the print to the length, this frock is perfect for evening.

Actor Adrien Brody attends amfAR Inspiration Gala looking Hollywood chic in an all black tuxedo. Doesn’t get much more suave than this!

Actress JoBeth Williams brought the heat to The Big Chill 30th anniversary premiere. A dress in flattering black with a lace overlay allowed her to show skin, be modest and sexy all in one. Her hemline combined with a classic black pointy toe pump both elongate and accentuate her toned pins.  


Brad Pitt kept it simple at the 12 Years A Slave premiere. Do you see that ponytail he’s sporting? It’s that last time you’ll see it for a while as the 49-year-old shaved his hair this week for his latest role in Fury.

Swoon. Actor Benedict Cumberbatch brought his charm and good looks to the red carpet of The Fifth Estate premiere. Dressed in classic black tie, Cumberbatch proves the traditional tux will never go out of style.

Screenwriter Barbara Benedek ditched the gowns and showed the crowd that suits are certainly not reserved for men at The Big Chill 30th anniversary premiere. With great pumps and a matching clutch, Benedek won the androgyny game.

Is that you, Matthew?  Ex-Downton Abbey actor Dan Stevens appeared on the red carpet last night to the screams of adoring fans. Dressed in a striking cobalt blue suit at The Fifth Estate premiere, Stevens seemed to officially shed the skin (and pounds) of Matthew Crawley and is ready to further his career in Hollywood.
