Another year of TIFF has come and gone, and so in an effort to relive, arguably, the most exciting time of the year in Toronto, we’re handing out ~virtual~ awards to our fave and not so fave red carpet looks. Let’s get started, shall we? Saving the best for last, and beginning with the worst.

Okay, so, most people are thinking, “it’s not that bad.” But seriously, it really, really is. TIFF is the equivalent to homecoming for McAdams. Her look should be screaming, “I’m back, bitches!” evoking us, her Queen West neighbours, to fawn over her beautiful soul. Instead, she looks très boring. This isn’t the first time you’ve let us down though, Rach’. I think it’s time to fire your stylist.
Selena, Selena, Selena. Your Marchesa gown looks like it was crafted from Karl Lagerfeld’s pet flamingo’s vomit. But in all seriousness, how do you propose to sit in that thing girl? You do know you’re going to a movie and not Bieber’s Baptism, right?
I have not a clue who the hell she is, and I don’t ever want to get to know her. Because no friend of mine would ever willing subject herself to a walking ad for the Planet of the Apes sequel. But on the contrary, she did win a FORA ~gold~ award so that’s got to make her somewhat relevant.
(Side note: Pardon my ignorance, she has a name. They call her Izabella Miko.)
Now for the best (!):
Is Emma Watson just not the most beautiful British human being? Her contemporary fashion risks are the highlight of any red carpet (we’re ignoring whatever Balenciaga knockoff this is).
The smile. The hair. The lipstick. The dress. Stewart radiated flawless age-appropriate elegance at TIFF, wowing just about everyone (including my Grandma – she’s a tough cookie to impress) in Zuhair Murad. Kristen even posed. She posed! It can only mean one thing: girl on the rebound.
Ay carambra, Bradley Cooper. The end.
But not really an honourable mention, since Kate takes the cake (and Cooper’s first place spot) in luminous Alexander McQueen. Understated beauty at its breathtaking finest.
