TIFF Fashion: The Best And Worst Looks Ever From The Toronto Film Festival


We couldn't be more excited that the Toronto International Film Festival unofficially kicks off tonight. The parties! The swag! The celeb-spotting!

As we ramp up to bring you of-the-moment coverage from TIFF 2012's red carpets (and exclusive parties), we thought we'd take a stroll down memory lane to relive some of our favourite looks from the festival's past -- be they good or bad.

Because TIFF, it turns out, seems to bring out the best and worst of A-lister fashion sense. Case in point is Rachel Weisz: the actress, who is normally sartorially savvy, seems to stumble when in Toronto (she makes our best and worst dressed lists). Then there are shots of Drew Barrymore and Ellen Page, two Hollywood hotties, wearing outfits that make us wonder whether they own a mirror.

In honour of TIFF 2012, have a little fashionable fun and look at some of the flashy images we were able to track down from Toronto's previous film festivals. Know of a wonderful/horrible look we missed? Let us know on Twitter.
