If you’ve ever wondered what to wear to a film festival we have the answer.

You can’t actually wear jeans and a t-shirt to a movie this time of year.

If you’re going anywhere in Toronto this week you better bring your style A-game. With a week full of events, movie screenings, celebrity sitings, and after parties, you’re going to need to look good to get in.

Here are four looks that should get you through this week’s red carpets, movie premieres, celeb sightings and after parties.

Classic Twist

We’re all about a classic twist. That’s when classic pieces are done a little differently. Canadian Designer Hussien X. Dalla is really good at it. That’s probably why The Weekend can’t stop wearing his pieces.

Mr. Always On The Scene 

You go out all the time, so why would this week be any different? If a suit just ain’t your steez don’t fake it, people can tell! Instead ask, what would John Bon Jovi do? All black skinny jeans fitted t-shirt to send the ultimate I’m on the list vibes. Do you boo-boo, you’re getting in any way.

Celebrity Style Makeover

September 9, 2014

We love celebrities and quite possibly the only thing we love more than them is what they wear. Celebrity style has been a phenomenon in the women’s market for decades and is an obvious trend that is transitioning towards men. North American men have finally started taking a vested interest in the way they dress a trend that can be attributed to one single fact, the male celebrities they admire.

With the Toronto Film Festival in full swing, celebrity sightings have become common place. From Bill Murray joyriding about town on his bicycle to Adam Sandler grabbing a bite at the Thompson Dinner, A-list celebrities are everywhere and so are the paparazzi that stalk them.

With candid celebrity street style photos popping up daily we thought it would be interesting to approach the topic of style from the other side. We reached out to some of our in-house style experts to pick a celebrity they love and then an outfit that they’d love to style them in. From Denzel Washington to Chris Evans, here’s what they came up with.


Style Tips

The red carpet style competition is notoriously stiff. Full time teams dedicated to the “look”, relationships with the most acclaimed designers, back-up attire for every event- it seems impossible for anyone (who isn’t an A-lister) to keep up. Except for us. We have every affair attended to, day to night, power lunches to black tie soirees. Slim fit suiting, creative details, trends and formalwear covered- for slickly understated attire to coolly stand apart from the crowd.
