As an avid supporter of Canadian fashion, Keshia Chanté takes pride in wearing our national design treasures. We always take notice of her high-impact ensembles, right down to her signature Christian Louboutins. This multi-talented songstress and actress is a true style chameleon, just as at home in a Mad Max-esque fur vest as a rose bloom dress. Here, she breaks down her favorite looks from LG Fashion Week in Toronto.

Pink Tartan
“As a follower of Mosha’s trend reports, I knew fur skirts were hot this season. I decided to pair a cream Pink Tartan fur skirt with a sweater with a pearl-shouldered sweater. To keep my outfit modern, I went with socks-and-heels with my Christian Louboutins. A Rodo bag and gold bangles finished the look.”

Evan Biddell
“Evan’s leather top from the SS 2010 show was a must-have. He personally added studs around the collar for me! I put it together with BCBG leather tights, Christian Louboutin shoulder bag with and shoes. The top had a lot of movement, so I wanted the rest of my outfit to be fitted and smooth.”

Holt Renfrew’s LGFW Opening Gala
“I LOVE cream and beige hues. My sweater, fur vest and riding pants are by Pink Tartan. I was excited to find a matching snake skin and camouflage Christian Louboutin Marianna shoulder bag. I paired it with chocolate brown knee-high boots, Swarovski jewelry and sunglasses by Carerra.”

OR by Angela Chen

“I fell in love with this OR smock dress and decided to tuck in a see-thru black OR blouse underneath to change it up. I kept it simple with a black and gold clutch and heels by Christian Louboutin.”

Joe Fresh Style
“My Pink Tartan rose dress was a strong piece that could stand on its own, so I wanted my accessories to be as minimal as possible. For accents, I went with a Rudsak belt, a Franchi black clutch (with a crystal rose on it), Christian Louboutin evening shoes, and a Swarovski tennis bracelet.”

Rachel Mara

“I wore a Rachel Mara silk blouse, Pink Tartan pants and a Greta Constantine fur vest over the blouse. I accessorized my look with Psalms earrings and a rosette feathered Valentino bag.”

Romona Keveza
“I kept this look simple and sweet with a Romona Keveza cocktail dress, an Alexis Bittar bangle, a crystal Franchi clutch and BCBG heels.”
