TIFF 2017 is getting so close. With the Venice Film Festival opening today I am just so excited for all of the glamour that is confirmed to walk red carpets over the next couple of weeks. Next Thursday the Toronto Film Festival will kick off with so many amazing stars slated to premiere films at the festival. We are now halfway through all of my wishes for this years Toronto Film Festival and we still have some really amazing wishes to go before I start onto my Emmy Awards wishes. Claire Foy is about to have a major fall ahead of her. The star of the Netflix series The Crown already has a Golden Globe and a SAG Award for her role in the series and is nominated for an Emmy next month too. In addition to that Claire will be making the rounds at the fall film festivals to promote her first major feature length film Breathe with co-star Andrew Garfield. I am really excited to see what her wardrobe will consist of. We haven’t really seen much of her style yet. Of her four major red carpet appearances since the release of The Crown three of them have been in Erdem and one has been in Valentino. I am get that she likes to represent British brands on the red carpet, but all she has worn is Erdem. There are so many amazing British labels that she could explore and I am hoping that she starts to branch out and explore other options for red carpet ensembles. For the TIFF premiere of Breathe I went to British couturiers Ralph & Russo and this beautiful black and lavender strapless cocktail dress from the labels Spring 2016 Couture collection. I think that this floral embroidered dress is incredibly feminine and very glamorous and I think that for a red carpet premiere in Toronto that it would make for a very beautiful moment for Claire. With a sleek bun, pink lip, diamond cluster earrings, and a pair of black Schutz ‘Natally’ knotted sandals this look would be total perfection. It has been a really long time since we have really seen Dianna on a red carpet so I am exited that she has a film to promote at the Toronto International Film Festival. For her first Toronto Film Festival, where she is presenting Novitiate, I want to see Dianna be on top form. I would love to see Dianna would love to see her step out on the red carpet wearing this coral Monique Lhuillier Resort 2018 cocktail dress which features a one shoulder neckline, a draped peplum silhouette, and a midi length. I think that for a major red carpet return that this dress would put Dianna back on the fashion map. There are so many designers that Dianna could pick, so picking this simple Monique Lhuillier dress might seem safe. I think I kinda did, but one that is also extremely elegant. With the embellished waist, a pair of bronze Schutz ‘Saasha Lee’ sandals, sleek bun, and a pink lip Dianna would remind me what I used to love about her style. Novitiate also stars rising starlet Margaret Qualley, who is the daughter of Andie MacDowell, and I am really excited to see what she will wear on the red carpet. I think that the fact that Margaret was invited to her first Met Gala earlier this year, as a guest of Prabal Gurung, that we can also figure that Margaret is also a rising fashion darling as well. For a TIFF special presentation red carpet I think that Margaret would continue to make her fashion star rise wearing this beautiful purple Elie Saab Fall2017 RTW ruffled lace gown which features a plunging neckline. I think that this dark and romantic gown is a perfect look for Margaret to wear for her first major film festival red carpet. Sparkle from a pair of grey crystal embellished Manolo Blahnik sandals and vintage Fred Leighton diamond earrings as well as a chic updo, smokey eye, and a red lip would ensure that Margaret looks amazing on the red carpet in Toronto. When I saw that Halle Berry would be promoting her latest film Kings at this years festival I kinda rolled my eyes. She has never been one of my favorite people to see on a red carpet and then her recent appearances have really been so snooze worthy that I just haven’t been excited about what Halle will bring to the red carpet. Since the premiere of Kings is a gala presentation I am hopeful that Halle will bring out all of the stops. I think that this red carpet would be the perfect place for Halle to give us total glamour with this black Dundas Resort 2018 crystal embellished illusion long sleeve gown features a sheet bodice construction and a full length column skirt with front leg slit. I could totally see Halle rocking this gown for a red carpet since it is sexy and glamorous all rolled into one look. I think that a pair of crystal embellished Giuseppe Zanotti ‘Coline’ sandals, a red lip, diamond cluster earrings, and a sleek low bun would make this one of Halle’s best red carpet looks ever.Unlike Halle I am completely obsessed with Ruth Wilson on the red carpet. I am really excited to see what she will wear on the red carpet at the TIFF premiere of Dark River. Ruth has mostly worn Dior for the major red carpets she has walked this year, and I am praying that she will leave the brand at home for her TIFF premiere. I would love to see Ruth give this beautiful blue floral embroidered Altuzarra Fall 2017 RTW sleeveless column gown the red carpet moment it so deserves. I don’t know why but every February Joseph Altuzarra presents these amazing gowns that I want to see on a red carpet at every major event, but then we never actually get to see them. I fall in love with these gowns and they get lost to the cycle. I think that Ruth would look absolutely amazing wearing this gown on a TIFF red carpet. I honestly think that Ruth will end up wearing a custom gown from either Monse or Oscar de la Renta since she has been a friend of Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim since they launched Monse.
The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival opens September 7, 2017 and runs through September 16, 2017.
