It was a crazy 10 days; the Toronto International Film Festival — 2010 edition — has finally come to a close. What were some of the highlights — good and bad — from this year”s fest? SheKnows was there!
TIFF’s best dressed
At some point during the festival, a certain Toronto-based website said TIFF’s fashions were a little bit boring. This festival-goer has to disagree. From Colin Firth in a sexy suit to Marion Cotil lard channeling Audrey Hepburn in Lefranc Ferrant, celebs were channeling chic and classic looks. Other best-dressed celebs include Carey Mulligan, Emily Hampshire, Rosamund Pike, Jon Hamm, Hayden Christiansen and Freida Pinto.
Unique TIFF parties
From bashes on top of garages (compliments of the artsy people at Absolut with the help of LexPR and Vision) to the stuff-your-face-with-food moments at the opening night party at the Liberty Grand (they had everything from poutine to candy popcorn on offer), there was a fun festival bash for everyone. Venues benefitted too. Some of this year’s top fetes were held at The Royal Conservatory of Music and the Thompson Hotel.
TIFF was a great time for many a jewellery line to showcase their wares. From Lia Sophia, which held an invite-only consultation of their stunning and celeb-loved line at The Windsor Arms Hotel, to the launch of Persona, a fun new take on the charm bracelet at The Hazleton Hotel, stars and media were treated to many a bedazzling moment just in time for red carpet appearances for the fest.
