PHOTOS: The Red Carpet Fun Begins At The Toronto International Film Festival

‘Tis the season for film festivals, and hence many red carpet roundups! Venice is winding down, but the fun is just beginning up north at the Toronto International Film Festival.

TIFF kicked off on Thursday, and there’s already been plenty of fashion action. Overall, there was nothing bad, but also nothing we haven’t seen before. Neutrals have thus far ruled the festival, with only a few ladies turning up in color. At the “Spring Breakers” premiere in particular, Ashley Benson, Selena Gomez, and Vanessa Hudgens all opted for well-fitted neutral numbers. Here are a few individual shoutouts, both good and bad:

Marion Cotillard showed up to the Rust & Bone premiere in Christian Dior couture (again) and looked incredible (again). Last night’s dress had a top that was very similar to the last one, but the overall look was 100 percent different. She probably could have done with a necklace, but the perfect fit, blue satin heels, and perfect updo added some red carpet glam to the simplicity of the dress. This girl was made to wear Raf’s Dior — or could it be she’s his new muse?

We also loved Emily Blunt‘s Roland Mouret, if for nothing else than the lovely hue. In the sea of black, tan, and white, she stood out in oxblood, this season’s color of the moment. Again, it was simple, but well done. No complaints!

Kirsten Dunst, however, did not fare as well. The dress itself is beautiful and fits like a glove, but it’s our opinion that flesh-toned gowns are never a good move for pale gals on the red carpet. Every day, someone else falls victim to the washed-out epidemic. Protect yourselves with color, ladies!!

And with that, we will leave you to your own devices. Just be sure to tell us which looks you loved (and loathed) in the comment box below.
