The Toronto International Film Festival was founded in 1976 and has become one of the most renown film festivals in the world. It is an annual event that is held in September, after Canada’s Labour Day. The TIFF is a star studded affair that is rivaled only by a night at the Oscars – though I doubt you’ll see Vogue sunglasses at this gala. It started out as a collection of the best films from around the world, but has grown into a place where you will most likely get a preview of the nominees to the Oscars.
Where there are celebrity gatherings, there is always a platform for fashion. Some fashions are at the forefront of style and some are not. One of the fashionable guys at the TIFF this year was Zac Efron. He had on a nicely tailored grey suit, with a two-button closure and narrow lapels. Grey is a trend that you will find in both men and women’s clothing this Fall. Zac contrasts the rich color of the suit with a crisp white shirt and a lavender micro-pattern tie.
One of the celebrities that “missed the mark” was RuPaul. He did manage to incorporate the trend of brightly colored clothing and work it into his outfit with a bright blue button-down shirt, under a double breasted bright white jacket, all paired with a slim melon colored trouser, but the white strap sandals just through the whole look off. RuPaul might have gotten away with it if he had put on a light neutral colored pair of leather loafers instead or at least accessorized better (hint: Sunglasses UK has tons of stuff fabulous enough even for Ru).
The second guy that got an award in “Fashion Flop” category was Robert DeNiro. Usually, he is a distinguished looking man, but in this photo at the TIFF, he looks more like he is posing for a mug shot. The jeans and jacket may have passed if he had worn something other than the faded blue, casual shirt. It made the outfit look lifeless. If he had popped it with a more intensely colored or pattern shirt under the jacket, it would have made a world of difference.
