Another Toronto International Film Festival is behind us.

Once again this year, hundreds of Hollywood and international celebrities descended onto the city for the premieres of their films. The festival often serves as a compass for Oscar nominations – many of the films we had first seen here have gone on to win the Academy Awards and other prestigious honours (for example, Argo and 12 Years a Slave).

Some of the highlights at TIFF 2017 were the following films: Molly’s GameThe Upside, Gaga: Five Foot Two, Suburbicon, Brad’s Status and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

A number of Hollywood’s top A-listers are either directing or assuming lead roles in these films, including Julianne Moore, George Clooney, Nicole Kidman, Bryan Cranston, Luke Wilson, Ben Stiller and Colin Farrell. We photographed all of them on the Red Carpet during the opening weekend of the festival.

Our favourite fashion ensembles included Julianne Moore in Christian Dior, Nicole Kidman in Valentino and Lady Gaga, who wore a striking custom Lanotta Studio outfit, and was in town for the premiere of her film as well as several concerts she had earlier that week.
