The FLARE fashion team weighs in on our favourite looks from the TIFF red carpet:

Fiona Green, Associate Fashion Editor
“Ingénue Carey Mulligan is my new favourite  on the red-carpet scene, making consistently sophisticated style choices. This starry Christopher Kane frock was perfect for a starlet such as herself.  From Resort 2011, the original piece was modified by adding length to the skirt with a zippered panel.”

Mosha Lundstrom Halbert, Assistant Fashion News Editor

“When I saw Marc Jacobs’ ode to the lady for Louis Vuitton, I thought it would make a lovely alternative to the ubiquitous beaded fishtail gowns I’m sick of seeing. Leave it to 90’s fashion icon Winona Ryder (a Jacobs’ loyalist, remember her darling MJ wardrobe for her trial?) to step out in a curvy black LV frock. With an role in the much-touted Black Swan film, could this LV outing signal Ryder’s return?”

Dane Tredway, Assistant Fashion Editor
“Uma Thurman’s take on menswear-inspired dressing was executed with ease and polish – really a standout in a sea of feminine frocks and clingy cocktail dresses.”

Erin O’Brien, Assistant Market Editor

“Blonde bombshell Blake Lively made a statement in stunning scarlet, right down to her lips and shoes. Sporting Chanel, she nailed the texture-on-texture trend with a cluster of floral appliqués on a sheath of sequins. Is this stellar choice a result of recent hang-time with the all-knowing Anna Wintour?”

Fashion Interns
“Hillary Swank’s short velvet Emilio Pucci dress was a nod to her famously backless Academy Award. The velvet sequined mini shows off her trim figure and the dangerously low back cowl softens her distinctive athletic build. We love how she paired the look with au naturale hair and makeup. Even when we spotted her the following night dancing away at Sweaty Betty’s, her effortlessly cool style was evident.”
