Toronto International Film Festival, TIFF has wrapped up and wow what a crazy time it has been in the city. A huge boom for the tourism industry, TIFF brings a lot of energy and needless to say a lot of celebrities to the city. Real Style writers and editors were social butterflies going from red carpet to after party to openings during the film festival. Here is a quick recap of some of the celebrities we met and parties we attended:
Clive Owen was gorgeous but rather sullen at the after party for Trust at the Brandt House. Kathleen Robertson was all smiles at the HELLO! Canada party where the city’s media and social elite shmoozed. Minnie Driver looked stunning and very slim at the ET after party for her movie Barney’s Version, her co-star Scott Speedman worked the crowd but the man of the hour Robert Lantos was no where to be seen. Anthony Hopkins was his signature charming self as he stopped to chat at the Four Seasons. Josh Brolin was groomed to the nines with his perfectly razored goatee in complete difference to a rather “Columbo” looking Henry Winkler who looked rumpled in a full length trench coat.
Scott Speedman was one busy man as he once again walked the Red Carpet with Emily Hampshire and Jay Baruchel for the premiere of Good Neighbours. Since we interviewed Emily and discovered her down to earth friendly manner she has become one of our favorite Canadian celebs.Also at the ET after party for Good Neighbours we chatted with Jill Hennessy who not only had a movie at TIFF, but also just released a new cd. We will have a full interview with her coming soon. Jill attended the party with her twin Jacqueline Hennessy and the two Scott brothers, Drew and Jonathan who have a new design show coming out on W, called Property Brothers. Speaking of cool property, congrats to the Liberty Group owners of several top notch dining and event locations and official TIFF hospitality partners who did an amazing job decorating the ET Canada lounge ..we will never look at a parking lot quite the same way again! We also caught up with Kevin Spacey at the Lia Sophia swag lounge at The Windsor Arms. Kevin who looked relaxed and friendly told us this was his 11th year coming to TIFF!!
You can be sure we missed a lot more parties but there is only so much our feet and liver can take, next year Real Style super partiers..erm staff will split up and conquer to bring you even more exciting coverage. Ta Ta for now as we go off to perfect the air kiss we learned at TIFF. Check out the video:
