Every day for the next six days will feature two wish lists for the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. I am getting really excited for this years festival. So many of the films that we see nominated during awards season premiere during TIFF and with the wide selection of films and all of the stars that are confirmed to attend premieres during the festival are just making me even more excited for this years festival. Alicia Vikander has long been a favorite of mine on the red carpet and I have missed seeing her so I am excited to see what she will bring to TIFF this year. Alicia will present two films at the festival this year and the first that I am going to wish for is her film Euphoria. Alicia is a face of Louis Vuitton so I can only imagine that one if not both of her looks during the festival will come from the label. I decided to get my wish for hr to wear LV out of the way first. I have to say that Alicia is one of the few who I could see making this beige, gold, and black tree toile print Louis Vuitton Cruise 2018 dress. The square shaped dress is given a defined waist with a ribbon embellished waist. This collection was presented in Japan and I can definitely see the samurai and geisha inspiration in this design, without it looking like a costume. I think that Alicia wearing this dress with a braided updo, smokey eye, glossy nude lip, and black strappy sandals on the TIFF red carpet would make for a great moment. Eva Green also stars in Euphoria alongside Alicia and I am interested to see what she will bring to the red carpet. At the Cannes Film Festival Eva really wowed me when she stepped out wearing a black and silver sequined Alexander McQueen shipwreck gown which I thought had been lost to the archives. For TIFF I went with a dark take on bohemian romanticism with this black Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture gown which features a plunging neck, velvet bodice and a sheer lace ribbon skirt for Eva to wear on the red carpet. I think that this would compliment the Louis Vuitton dress I picked for Alicia to wear. Old Hollywood waves, a red lip, statement diamond necklace, smokey eye, and a pair of strappy black sandals would add the perfect finishing touches to this look for Eva. Mother! is one of the films that is screening at the Venice Film Festival that will continue its journey to the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival. It has pretty much been since the Passengers promo tour last December that we saw Jennifer Lawrence on a red carpet, and I am really excited to see her back on the red carpet. I know that JLaw is a face of Dior so I would imagine that she will wear nothing but Dior as she makes the festival rounds presenting Mother!. For TIFF I would love to see Jennifer wear this beautiful Christian Dior Fall 2017 Couture ruffled chiffon cocktail dress which features a plunging neckline, belted waist, and a midi length. I would however change the color. I think that if Jennifer wore this dress in a rich amethyst color to really make it a stand out moment on the red carpet. I would style this look with a pair of purple velvet Gianvito Rossi floral embroidered pumps, a loose updo, smokey eye, red lip, and diamond cluster earrings to ensure that this is a beautiful moment for Jennifer. With two movies that she is promoting this festival season we are going to be seeing a whole lot of Kristen Wiig on the red carpet this fall. After presenting Mother! at the Venice Film Festival the films cast will jump on a plane and head to Toronto. For the films premiere I want Kirsten to join Jennifer on the red carpet wearing this midnight blue Zac Posen Resort 2018 embellished bodice gown feature a bateau neckline, cap sleeves, and a full length fit to flare skirt with back train design. This Zac Posen gown has the potential to be one of Kirsten’s best red carpet moments ever. Usually we don’t see Kristen in embellished designs, but I think the embellishments on this gown are simple enough. Adding a pair of black Oscar Tiye ‘Malikah’ velvet sandals, diamond and sapphire earrings, sleek hair, a lined eye, and nude lip would make this a real wow moment, a true fashion glam moment for Kristen. Rounding out my first day chock off of TIFF wish is Tatiana Maslany. The Orphan Black star is going to presenting her latest film Stronger at this years festival. This is hardly Tatiana’s first trip to TIFF and each time that she has she has worn a short dress. I am hoping that this year while she presents Stronger that we see Tatiana give us glamour on the red carpet with this liquid black Yigal Azrouël Resort 2018 column gown which features spaghetti straps, plunging neckline, and peplum. Tatiana’s style is more tomboy than old Hollywood glam, but I think that this edgy gown could fit her aesthetic quite easily. To make this look perfect for Tatiana I would love to see her pair this gown with a loose updo, light smokey eye, nude lip, and a pair of black Schutz ‘Cadey Lee’ sandals.
The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival opens September 7, 2017 and runs through September 16, 2017.
