Fugs and Fabs: Celeb Roundup From Toronto Film Festival


Whether Toronto is ACTUALLY finally over or not, emotionally I need to finish with it, because the Emmys on Sunday mean that I have no room for other drama. MOVE OVER, TIFF.

Well Played: Jennifer Garner in Peter Pilotto at TIFF


I miss Jennifer Garner. I mean, I know she hasn’t gone anywhere, what with Vanity Fair and Capital One and tearjerker movies with omnipresent commercials that kinda seem like Hallmark Channel joints. She’s very much AROUND, but I still miss her, because let’s face it: I want her to find her next Alias.

I mean, she’s never looked better, and she’s getting a little experimental with her clothes now that she’s split from Affleck — even her Ferrying the Children Around Los Angeles clothes now occasionally include dresses and heels – and her hair is PARTICULARLY fantastic. I know the fact that this pattern is not exactly centered will distract some people, and I understand that, and I also wouldn’t disagree with an analysis of whether that skirt ruffle needs to be there. But in all, I’m happy. There’s personality here. Garner gets dinged a lot for being milquetoast in appeal, and this has spice. I’m feeling it.

And I really do think she should try to come back to TV (on something that isn’t a commercial). Something unusual and cool. I joke that Fargo is always my pitch for celebrities who need to break their mold and do something critically acclaimed that will probably snag them an Emmy, but seriously: She could totally do a weirdo period piece like Fargo and be awesome. Or any number of other things more inventive than Criminal Minds: Traumatic Heinous Death Murder, or whatever. Come back to us, Jennifer! Bring us that hair on the regular.

Fug or Fab: Michelle Williams in Louis Vuitton at TIFF


This is a surprisingly sexy look for Michelle, who doesn’t usually go for slinky. I can’t decided if I think she’s carrying it or not. Let’s look at the fabric first, though:

2016 Toronto International Film Festival - "Manchester By The Sea" Premiere

Sidebar: I kinda forgot that she’d grown her hair out for a while and is now back to the pixie, simply because she has this pixie in my head 100% of the time. She might as well just leave it this way constantly, because this is how we all picture her anyway. ANYHOODLE, I love this fabric, grommets and all. It’s glamorously industrial and very slightly weird and I think it’s really great.

Here’s the whole look:

The dress looks like a Klimt painting and I think it’s gorgeous, but I don’t know if she’s got the red carpet pizzazz to totally sell it. She’s often sort of subdued at photo shoots, and in a sense, I wonder if it’s more logical to dress her in clothing that doesn’t demand so much attention. She’s obviously going to get attention no matter what, but this is a LOOK AT ME!!!!!!!! dress and I’m not sure if Michelle Williams has a LOOK AT ME!!!!!! personality, and thus it might slightly feel as if it’s wearing her. What do you think? Honest question — I’m not sure if I’ve cracked this one or not.

Fug or Fab: Dakota Fanning in Dolce & Gabbana at TIFF


I really like the front of this dress, but the styling sort of makes Dakota look like she’s arrived late for a final audition for a period piece after realizing whilst on the Stairmaster that she was actually scheduled to be at Warner Brothers at 2pm, not 4pm and she’ll never get there in time, run RUN!!!!!

Ye Olde Gym Hair works sometimes — even I, Cranky Old Person, can admit that — but this is, in my opinion, not one of those times. I get wanting to dress down this outfit, but I wonder if a braid would have accomplished the same thing without giving the feeling that she just flew like a bat out of hell out of Equinox.

The back of the dress is pretty, though:

I feel like you could arguably wear this dress backwards, too. Like two D&Gs in one! Don’t ever say they never gave you a bargain.

Fugs and Fabs: Amy Adams in McQueen at TIFF


Amy is in a Solids kind of mood right now, it seems.

Well Played: Naomie Harris in Mugler at TIFF


Today has not been my favorite, until right now:

Hollywood Foreign Press Association and InStyle's Annual Celebration of the Toronto International Film Festival

I just find this so cheerful and fun, and even better, it came along exactly when I needed it. It’s a little gift from the fashion gods to those of us who are tired of The Sheers and The Beiges and The Nakeds and every other trend that’s being run into the ground by a spiked steamroller. Thank you, Naomie, for being a bright star.
