In this set of wishes for the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival we have some of our favorite ladies to see on the red carpet. I am excited to see so many of my favorite stars to see on the red carpet on the roster of films for this years festival. It means that we have a lot of amazing red carpets in store for us over the course of the ten days of this years edition of TIFF. Every year during TIFF there are some films that are continuing to promotions after screening at the Cannes Film Festival. One of those films is the Elisabeth Moss starring The Square and I am very interested in seeing what she will wear for this premiere. I would imagine that with the Emmy Awards looming that Elisabeth will be on the red carpet to help promote this film and keep up appearances. I would love to see Elisabeth give us romantic glamour on the TIFF red carpet wearing this navy Carolina Herrera Fall 2017 RTW cocktail dress which features a strapless silhouette, a velvet bustier with bow detail, and an a-line organza embroidered midi skirt. As we approach New York Fashion Week I am still surprised that this dress hasn’t been snatched up yet, and I am afraid that this dress is about to get lost to the archives and that is a real shame. I think that Elisabeth would make this a very chic moment for her to work on the red carpet for a TIFF premiere. I would go pretty simple yet elegant with the styling of this look adding a sleek bun, lined eye, diamond cluster earrings, red lip, and a pair of black Stuart Weitzman ‘Nudistsong’ sandals. Since she won her Oscar for La La Land we have seen almost nothing of Emma Stone on the red carpets. Her latest film Battle of the Sexes is screening at the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival as a special screening so I am sure that we will finally get Emma back on the red carpets. I went back and forth on so many different dresses for Emma because she can wear just about anything. Ultimately I went to this black Michael Kors Fall 2017 RTW paillette fringe strapless gown that features a strapless neckline and fringe column silhouette for Emma to wear for this screening because I love this gown and I think that she is one of the very few who could really make this dress come to life on a red carpet. I think that a lot of stars won’t wear this dress because Kendall Jenner modeled it on the runway and they don’t want to get into a “Who Wore It Better” situation with Jenner, but I think that it is silly that shows like E! News and Fashion Police would try to make this a “bitch stole my look moment.” I think that Emma would shut the carpet down wearing this gown with a loose updo, red lip, and a pair of black Christian Louboutin ‘Choca Spikes’ studded sandals to really compliment this gown perfectly. Glenn Close is always one of the most glamorous and dramatic women on a red carpet when she steps out. For the most part Glenn wears mostly Zac Posen on the red carpets and I am hoping that the two are cooking up something magical for TIFF gala premiere of The Wife. I feel like it would be something custom for Glenn to wear on this red carpet, but if I were to pick a runway look I think that Glenn would shut the red carpet down wearing this cavaliere red Zac Posen Resort 2018 ensemble which features an origami draped blazer and a high waist a-line ball skirt. This look is bold, dramatic, and elegant and I can totally picture Glenn really making this look her own. I feel like she would define her waist even if it is with a red silk ribbon belt. I would just add a smokey eye, red Schutz ‘Denitta’ pumps, smokey eye, lined eye, nude lip, and a pair of diamond cluster earrings to let the ensemble be the statement. The gala premiere of Woman Walks Ahead is one that I am most excited to see the red carpet for at TIFF this year. Jessica Chastain stars in this film, and as one of my favorite red carpet ladies and with the promise of a major gala screening I am praying that she will shut the red carpet down. After a glam jury run at the Cannes Film Festival I just want to see Jessica keep up her major moments on the red carpet. As the face of the fragrance Woman by Ralph Lauren I would imagine that Jessica will wear at least one look from the label during her time at TIFF. Since Ralph Lauren has moved to a see now buy now model we don’t get to see the next seasons clothes until they are allowed to hit stores. Back in May the brand released their lookbook for the Pre-Fall 2017 collection and aside from the liquid oxblood red sequin off the shoulder column gown there wasn’t anything that I really got excited about. Jessica was the first person I thought of to wear this gown and since she didn’t get it for Cannes, I think that a gala premiere at TIFF would be the perfect place for her to wear it. This gown is sleek and elegant with an innate sense of sensuality that I just think would all check the boxes on what would make this perfect on Jessica. Old Hollywood waves, matching red lip, vintage yellow gold set diamond and ruby drop earrings, and a pair of black Gianvito Rossi ‘Love Heart’ sandals would punctuate this look perfectly. The last premiere I am making a wish for today is the special presentation screening of Hostiles. I want to see the star Rosamund Pike really deliver a really glam look when she steps out at the festival to promote the film. I went back to red for Rosamund to wear on the red carpet at this premiere with this Giambattista Valli Resort 2018 sleeveless lace trim gown which features a deep v-neckline, lace detailing, and a soft pleated skirt. When I think back at some of my favorite looks that Rosamund has worn on the red carpet in the past they are almost always red. I think that this simpler silhouette is perfect for a TIFF premiere and given her history that this would just become magic. Finishing this with a vintage inspired updo, red lip, smokey eye, diamond drop earrings, and a pair of red Christian Louboutin ‘Aketata’ peep toe, patent leather, ankle strap sandals all would contribute to making this an absolutely beautiful moment at TIFF.
The 2017 Toronto International Film Festival opens September 7, 2017 and runs through September 16, 2017.
