The red carpets of the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival are bound to be extremely exciting. As you have been able to tell some of my wishes are filled with several films and some are filled with very few. In my fourth wish list for this years festival I only have two films, but five lovely ladies that are sure to deliver beautiful red carpet moments at this years festival. A big part of this set of wishes is dedicated to the amazing cast of the film Mary Shelley about the life of the Frankenstein author, which is going to be given one of the big gala screenings at this years festival. I am very excited to see what the cast will deliver on the red carpet at this premiere. Bel Powley is a rising fashion star, and I am really praying that she will deliver something absolutely beautiful and eye catching. I think that Bel would look absolutely stunning on a gala red carpet wearing this light pink Marc Jacobs Resort 2018 fringe trimmed dress which I would love to see have made into a gown for her. Every great rising fashion starlet needs at least one red carpet in Marc Jacobs and I think that for one of the major premieres in Toronto that it would be the opportune time for Bel to give it a truly beautiful turn on the red carpet. I think that if Bel wore a beautiful vintage inspired updo, lined eye, light pink lip, diamond drop earrings, a pair of simple gold sandals, and a gold clutch with this gown that she would have the major red carpet moment that I know that she could have. Elle Fanning plays the title role in Mary Shelley so I am expecting something absolutely magical from her at the films Toronto International Film Festival premiere. Elle loves these chic, bohemian glam moments on the red carpet and from the moment I saw this Schiaparelli Fall 2017 Couture gown on the runway I was in love. The strapless gown which features a white embroidered silk bustier and a nude tulle ball skirt is all about whimsical glamour and I totally think that Elle would look absolutely lovely in this gown on a red carpet in Toronto. I love the red chiffon cape that the gown was paired with on the runway and as much as I feel like it might come across as too costume-y for her to wear on a red carpet. I would love to see Elle add a sleek high bun, lined eye, red lips, and a pair of red satin sandals to really make this a beautiful red carpet moment at the Toronto International Film Festival. Joane Froggatt has never been one of my favorite stars to see on a red carpet. I don’t dislike her style, but I don’t think that she ever brings anything that is special to a red carpet. With some real fashion heavy hitters as co-stars in Mary Shelley I am hoping that they will rub off on Joanne and really inspire her to up her fashion game. For the gala red carpet premiere of Mary Shelley I would love to see Joanne go for the glam wearing this peach Pamella Roland Resort 2018 gown which features a sleeveless beaded bodice and a flowing skirt. I think that when it comes to glamour that we need to take baby steps and that this gown would perfectly compliment the two other gowns I chose for Bel and Elle to wear for this premiere as well. Where this look can be made is in the styling with a pair of rose gold sandals, a metallic rose gold clutch, sleek updo, a pink lip, and smokey eye to really draw out the inner glam goddess from Joanne. Game of Thrones starlet Maisie Williams can always be counted on for giving a glam red carpet moment in a look from a designer that doesn’t get a whole lot of love on the red carpet. I would love to see that come again as she steps onto the red carpet at the TIFF premiere of Mary Shelley wearing this absolutely beautiful cherry red and navy Dion Lee Resort 2018 nautical knot halter dress which features a draped tie detail. Dion Lee gets some red carpet love, but usually not at big events like the Toronto International Film Festival. I think that if anyone could really make this dress work for a gala presentation red carpet that it would be Maisie. I think that Maisie would totally turn this into a modern meets classic moment on the red carpet with a pair of simple navy sandals, tight finger waves, a berry lip, and a navy box clutch. The other film in this set of wishes is The Death of Stalin which is premiering in the Platform selection of this years festival. The film stars Olga Kurylenko alongside Steve Buscemi and Oscar Issacs and I cannot wait to see what Olga wears on the red carpet for the premiere. Olga is one of the most underrated style stars always delivering glamorous looks, usually in couture. For this premiere I went to this black and gold embroidered Elie Saab Fall 2017 Couture tea length gown which features sheer peasant sleeves and a velvet bow on the neckline. When I was going through runway images just looking for dresses that were perfect for a TIFF premiere and I saw this gown I immediately thought of Olga and I think that the dark romanticism of this gown would make it the perfect look for her to wear on TIFF red carpet. The dress is such a statement on its own I don’t want it to get lost in over styling. A sleek high bun, smokey eye, nude lip, and a pair of dark gold pumps would make this look absolute perfection.
The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival opens September 7, 2017 and runs through September 16, 2017.
