TIFF Inspired Looks with Hudson’s Bay

Back to school and fall fashion are upon us, but if you’re in Toronto, there’s another exciting event that hits the city when the temperature dips: Toronto International Film Festival. Walked by some of Hollywood’s most celebrated stars, TIFF starts tonight and runs until September 15!

With actors including Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lopez, Kerry Washington, Constance Wu and Priyanka Chopra (to name a few) hitting the carpet this year, there’s no doubt that the fashion will be MAJOR.

To celebrate, I’ve partnered with Hudson’s Bay, an official fashion retailer and red carpet sponsor at the 44th Toronto International Film Festival, to highlight some TIFF-inspired looks, just in time for the kick off of the festival!

TIFF isn’t just about red carpets, it’s also about pre-parties, after-parties, movie screenings, and enjoying the hustle & bustle of the city (sometimes all in one day)! I love to be comfortable, but still stand out and opting for fun colours and prints in luxe textures does exactly that!

A leather mini dress is another must-have for for fall, and is the perfect TIFF after-party look. Done in a chestnut brown, this leather zip up is a standout look. Pair it with a snake print block heel for a 60’s mod feel.

The slip dress was THE silhouette of summer, and just because the temperature dips, doesn’t mean you have to throw it into storage! Simply add a turtleneck underneath (I styled mine with a sheer turtleneck to give it more of an evening feel), and add some edgy accessories like a chain belt and shooties to bring this look into the fall season. I don’t know about you, but I think this look is the perfect movie screening moment!

And of course, who could forget about a red carpet moment? Hudson’s Bay is THE destination for dresses – for any occasion – and I for one love a good LBD. It’s classic, sophisticated and never goes out of style.

Add some blingy footwear to really seal the deal!

And exciting news, Hudson’s Bay will be bringing its iconic stripes back to the podium with TIFF’s live broadcast of the red carpet arrivals at Roy Thomson Hall. From Sept. 5-8, audiences can tune into TIFF’s social channels to watch co-hosts, Alicia Malone, Amanda Parris and Anthony Oliveira meet with the
stars of TIFF’s most buzz-worthy titles to talk all things film and fashion.

Plus, I will be there TONIGHT to celebrate TIFF’s opening night and will be sharing my take on this year’s hottest TIFF fashions, both on and off the
screen. Watch live here.
