Best and Worst Dressed at the Toronto Film Festival 2013

The Toronto Film Festival or TIFF, held annually in September has drawn a lot of attention this year for it's admirable displays of fashion. Here is my pick of the best and worst dressed A-list bunch. 


Best Dressed

Keira Knightley

English rose Keira Knightley stunned in two ways at the Toronto Film Festival this week. She demonstrated her amazing vocal skills in new film Can A Song Save Your Life and she also stepped onto the red carpet in this enchanting piece. I love the rush of purple in this complimenting midi dress and the intricate detail is stunning. 

Kristen Wiig 

The beautiful Kristen Wiig had my favourite outfit of the bunch as she embraced the monochrome in this intricate black cut-out shirt and Aztec print shorts. Her simple black heels and messy updo complete the outfit perfectly, and she looks so comfy- bonus!

Julia Roberts

How CUTE is Julia Roberts in Dolce and Gabbana? I love the subtle baroque-style print on the dress and the sleeves look relaxed. Nude heels and a wonderfully loose up do (like Wiig's ) is definitely popular right now. 

Felicity Jones 

Chic is not the word. Felicity Jones embodies the word sophisticated in this midnight blue Dior gown. Sleeked back hair with classical charcoal make-up compliment her face and I love her skinny stilettos. Effortless. 

Marion Cotillard

Miss Cotillard always looks amazing as she demonstrated in Cannes earlier this year and despite a majority of her outfits being on the plain side, I thought this robe-esque piece looked sleek. My favourite element of this outfit however are her shoes. Who knew dogstooth and peachy shades went together? I love how off set the straps are too. Go girl. 


Emilia Clarke 

WOWZA. This dress oozes summer. How fruity does Emilia Clarke look in this  off-shoulder mustard frock with slight v-plunge? Her dramatic lip colour is breath-taking and slicking that hair back means that nothing detracts from that wonderful dress. 

Saoirse Ronan

I actually loved the visuals that Ronan's dress provided on the red carpet and I definitely think she has nailed a more gothic look with the deep and light purple with a plum matte lip colour. Although I am not a fan of the nude panel on her shoes, I think the outfit is highly unusual and I applaud her for stepping out of the box! 

Worst Dressed

Juliette Lewis

NO no no! This Wes Gordan disaster does nothing for actress and singer Juliette Lewis. It is too tight around the tummy and she looks incredibly uncomfortable. 

Jessica Chastain

Although I think Jessica Chastain is a fabulous actress, she needs to get a different stylist. Her choice of colours are bizarre against her complection and this baby blue with lace trimmings is no different.  Perhaps opt for a more striking as oppose to inspid colour next time? 

Daniel Radcliffe

Lordy. What have we here? a disaster if I ever saw one. It seems Daniel Radcliffe's checked shirt has inner checks making it extremely busy, and rolling up the sleeves makes his look far too casual. Whoever told this boy that electric blue trousers are acceptable, needs to be told otherwise. My eyes hurt. 

Naomie Harris

Sometimes a gown looks more endearing when it is rough around the edges, but Naomie's looks as if a dog has been hacking at it for some time now. Her lip and nail colour may be bang on, but this dress is a no go. 

Elizabeth Olsen 

Saved the worst for last here as it seems Elizabeth olsen opted for a 60s carpet look. I'm pretty sure there is a slim figure hiding underneath all that material, but the shapelessness of the dress gives nothing away. Awful colour, awful structure, awful piece
