TIFF 2012 Kicks Off With Blue Alley Party

The festivities of the Toronto International Film Festival, or TIFF, 2012 have started. Last night the city began with Hollywood North style festivities with a ‘Blue Alley’ street party in downtown Toronto.

Canadian stars including Corner Gas actresses Gabrielle Miller and Tara Spencer-Nairn, model Stacey McKenzie and Canadian gold medal winner Rosie MacLennan drank signature cocktails with cute celeb inspired names like ‘Good on Gosling’ and ‘Peach Paltrow’ while being entertained by Cirque du Soleil style acrobatics.

Real Style attended the Producers Ball at the Shangri-La Hotel, where we mingled with stars like Emmanuelle Vaugier of Two and a Half Men fame, My Awkward Sexual Adventure’s Emily Hampshire, George Stoumboulopoulos and actress Natalie Brown.
